Pizza Bob’s is a thin crust pizza. We are still trying to find a pizza we like in Aruba. Most of them are thin crust. We tried The Hungry Pirahna at the Albrahama mall for lunch one day and we liked it better than Pizza Bob’s but it wasn’t great just good enough.

Try Mulligan's at Divi Village for a great brick oven pizza. It is thin crust, but delicious.

I've always liked Terrazza Italiana at Paradise Beach Villas. Haven't tried their pizza yet (they weren't set up for pizza the last time I was there) but I plan to try it in September.

Isn't it a pizza place until 5:00 and then it switches over to a non-pizza restaurant?

You can get a pizza any time up to closing. Pizza is thin crust but better than any I have had on the island.

We really like Pizza Bob’s thin crust pizza. It is our first night meal on the island and we order enough for leftovers for lunches. The pizza is cut into squares instead of triangles. Happy Hour is from 5–7 which offers 2 for 1 on selected drinks and lg pizzas for the price of a medium.

imo, since restaurant preferences are very subjective most are worth trying once to decide for yourself. that being said I found terazza to be average at best although many do give it decent reviews. i found altamar on palm beach to be much better. as far as pizza, we are only on the island for 7 nights to this point and don't look for pizza as a dining out choice. maybe when we can extend our trips to 10+ days it may become an option. good luck.

Jimmy as you said it is all subjective as to how good a restaurant is. For me it is also about what one is looking for and of course price.

Usually once a trip after a day at the beach and a shower as the lovely Mrs. AJ showers I jump in the car drive over to Pizza Bobs and grab a pie. Back to the room, open a bottle of wine and eat on the balcony.

Now if I can do the same at Terrazza at the Paradise Villas I'll try them.

Hi, Kevin.

We ate at Terrazza when they first opened, and although we liked the owners we didn't care for the food. Service was slow, and the food was relatively tasteless in our opinion. We liked the pizza when they had it in its own restaurant (Pizza and More), but we don't know what it's like now that it's moved.

Pizza Bob is indeed thin crust pizza. We find Amore Mio (across from the Hilton) to have much better pizza; it's also pretty thin, though. The only "non-thin crust" I've found is at Pizza Hut...

We ate at Azia when it first opened as well. It's a very "trendy" place, serving small bites and then I guess it turns into a dance club later in the evenings (?). The food was just OK, very expensive if you try to make an actual meal out of the tapas-sized servings.

Hope that helps...

Casa Tua by The Renn has a pretty good pizza. It is a thin crust.

Best pizza we've had the last few trips was at Casa Tua at the Seaport & Hosteria da Vittorio.

I have to agree with the negative comments about Terraza - we liked the owner & her enthusiasm, but the food & service were N.G. - never went back after that first very disappointing visit.

The only place to get good pizza is in New York.

End of discussion.

Ha! Good one.

Last visit we tried the Hawaiian pizza at Casa Tua. Me, I've always said that fruit has on place on pizza. Or in a beer. BUT, the H Pizza at Casa Tua, in addition to pineapple, has ham, bacon and pepperoni. I'm now a convert...
