The Best Pizza in San Miguel de Allende

La Grotta Restaurante at Cuadrante No. 5 in San Miguel de Allende has the best pizza in town! It's right around the corner from Calle Cuna de Allende that leads you up to the jardin. My friends, Esther and Daniel, own and run the place along with the help of their son, Dyami.
It is a cozy little restaurant that is decorated with a lot of charm. Proceed up the spiral staircase to the second floor and enjoy a view of the street below.
Here's Esther. We were out and about one afternoon during Easter week (Semana de Santos) watching some of the processions around town and taking in all the altars.
The pizzas have thin crusts that come with an assortment delicious toppings. Order off the menu or select your own toppings. My favorite is chorizo and rajas (strips of jalapeno peppers). The salads are cold and crisp. I love the refreshing salad with grapefruit sections, greens, pecans and goat cheese.
On my previous guided tour of San Miguel, Linda and Trudy stayed an extra day and they were gracious enough to invite me out to dinner. We walked up to La Grotta and enjoyed a margarita and a couple of pizzas. I bet you could not tell they are mother and daughter!

Next time you're in a mood for pizza, tell Esther and Daniel that Robin sent you in. La Grotta is open daily from 1:00 to 11:00pm. Buen provecho.
