    Don't waste your time with this Pizza/Empanada spot. Lacked service, waiter took 15 just to take our drink order and then didn't even bring our drinks until we were almost done with our meal. The pizza was just OK. Nothing special. Same with the empanadas. Tasted like they were frozen and de-frosted. Not good at all. Will not be going back especially since they are far better options in Williamsburg.

  • A Cool spot, Won't hurt your wallet

    The Ambience is cool if not a little random... empanadas and pizza served side by side in a glammed-up hunting shack/lodge environment. These inconsistencies really only add to the charm of the place which serves delicious food and good drinks. This is the type of place we need more of, good food and drink at a reasonable price. A great spot for dinner with friends, and for continuing the night. As we were leaving a band was coming on to play some music. Would definitely suggest this place and return as well.

    I had a great time sharing a meal with a large group in the back party space of this restaurant. The pizza I received wasn't super hot but it was still tasty.

    Large menu with something for everyone and really nice staff. Only complaint is that it's very noisy!
