Description: Masafina features an innovative pizza concept, taking the eating experience to the next level by bringing local Puertorrican ingredients to the table. You may find a pizza with filet mignon and fried sweet plantains and mustard greens, or the well know pork "lechon"- flavored chicken with "arañitas" (shredded green plantains) with caramelized onions. For vegetarians there is pizza with the Puertorrican version of the Italian caponata or fresh fish pizza with batata or "sweet potato." This menu, paired with a wide selection of beers, including imported and domestic, as well as a complete wine list will give you a once in a lifetime opportunity to try the only Puertorrican pizza place in the Island. We are minutes away from the Condado and Viejo San Juan tourist areas. Free valet parking. Open Sunday 12pm-6pm, Tuesday-Thursday 11:30am-3:00pm and 6:00pm to 10:00pm, Friday 11:30am to 10:00pm, and Saturday 1:00pm to 10:00pm.

“Best pizza in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012 via mobile

Good beers, excellent service and the prices not bad at all. If you are looking for a small restaurant with good food, this is the place. Really close from old San Juan and Condado Area. What else do you want me to say? Just go and check it out for yourself. Nothing else to say..……

“Awesome just awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

Great place to eat and drink with family, friends or date. The pizzas have very unique taste achieved by combining the local ingredients and flavors you can't find anywhere else.

In combination with yummy appetizers, craft beers, cozy atmosphere and great service is a must go restaurant on my list.

“a change of pace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

I love changing pace in my routines. That's why I find Masafina so exciting. You can go with a small or a hefty appetite, but you will always come out satisfied.
This is pizza with a different stroke. The menu is inventive and delicious, keeping touch with the local flavors, but not losing its pizazz (pun intended).
Pizza is my thing, but I still haven't tried an appetizer I don't love. The ambiance is fun and smart. Good list of beer and wine.

“Very good food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

I have been at Masafina a few times. The food offerings are very good, the decoration is very nice and the service is excellent every time I go. I love the calamari, the goat cheese appetizer, and the Puertorrican sausage (longaniza) pizza. They have a great beer and wine selection, and even though I am not a mixed drink person, I had to try "La Parguera". It was very good and refreshing. I can't wait to go back to try the other pizzas.

Did I mention that the service was excellent??? :)
