Neva's Place is one of those gastronomic digs that one shouldn't miss when visiting Puerto Princesa. Best known for their woodfire brick oven "kuripot"* pizza -- which uses the much cheaper cheddar cheese instead of mozzarella, but never sacrificing taste -- Neva's is popular among locals. Of course, for those with discriminating taste, they also offer premium pizza. Try their... More

The clerk at our hotel recommended Neva's Place for pizza, a pretty easy walk from the hotel. It was so good we went back 3 times over our 2-week stay in Puerto. The outdoor, casual setting is very cool, too. And their sweet tea was a delicious reprieve from the heat!

Tucked away from the street we found this peaceful place with very good food. When we arrived at 18:00 on a Tuesday, smooth jazz music was playing and the pizza oven was already fired with wood and the delicious pizza was served quickly. They also do Filipino dishes and some nice Thai curries as well. Alcohol is not served.

Visited last night with my partner, you walk down the path and the lights made it look really cosy there. Shared a pizza (the top of the page are with mozzarella cheese, the bottom are with cheddar and slightly cheaper), salad and 2 soft drinks for 330p which was a bargain. Waitress was really helpful in explaining what was on... More

Waited about 65min for my tasty pizza. Probably not worth the wait. Customer walked in yelling that her pizza had not been delivered yet.

Neva's has been our favorite since highschool times. They were the first to introduce pizza with cheddar cheese that makes it affordable. Brick oven pizzas are tasty and well-done. Service was efficient. Price is very affordable. Place is nice and very relaxing. Downside is there are mosquitoes around the area since the resto is surrounded by plants. I hope they... More

This place is one of the best pizza houses around Puerto Princesa City. The good thing about Neva's place is they offer really good food at a low price compared to other restaurants. I highly recommend it to travellers on a budget. I love their pizza!

I have been to Neva's Pizza in Dumaguete several times so I knew what I was expecting when I visited Neva's in Puerto Princesa for the first. I wanted to try something else from the menu but I ended up ordering Pizza again. Yes the pizza is really good. They have an option of real mozzarella cheese or the cheaper... More

Neva's Place used to be the house of the owner Jane Timbancaya-Urbanek, a lovely and very kind woman, at Taft Street. When it started operating in Puerto Princesa a long time ago, I immediately fell in loved with its pizza recipes. My fave is, of course, the Witch House Special. Neva's cook their pizza using the traditional "pugon" or brick... More
