La Piastra Pizza is the best in Cuenca!
In the running for best pizza was Chicago Pizza, Mimi’s Pizza, La Fornace, Papa John’s, Pizza Hut, and several others, but hands down, La Piastra won!
La Piastra and I was a bit skeptical at first. That is until we met the owner, Pablo Morejon! He made us feel right at home and let us divide the pizza according to our pleasure. I like a lot of peppers on mine (Mark does not), so he did a 50/50 pizza—half for Mark and half for me.
The crust was perfect (not too thick and not too thin). The sauce was tasty, the cheese was just the right portion and best of all, Pablo aims to please.
We loved the red and white checkered tablecloths, the home-like atmosphere, colorful decorations and the fact that everything was immaculate -- all of which spoke to our "heart."
La Piastra has “gusto y sabor” and they offer “servicio a domicilio” – home delivery. And best of all, the price is right. We ordered a “mediana” pizza with all the trimmings and drinks and we still had lots of change left over from our $20.
Pat and Mike, are in the condo building next door, which we had no idea about until after we heard from them via e-mail. I’m sure we’ll be visiting them a lot more often and going out for pizza again and again.
La Piastra is located at RemigioTameriz 3-15 y Agustin Cueva.
Phone (land line): 288-1446. Cell: 083010970. Hours of Service: Tuesday through Saturday 12h30 -22h00.
