Casa Tua / Arawak Garden, Aruba
Situated right on the corner of what is the most popular and busiest corner on the Island of Aruba, is Casa Tua. Known for their pizza, they offer quite a bit more, especially unique pizzas like the Gypsy with chorizo, onion and black olives
Below you see another with ham and fresh mushrooms. The crust and dough on their pizza is not what you might expect in Italy or even in USA, its lighter, crispier, and if you can get past that, you will enjoy some good pizza. I personally do not like a lot of dough, so its a nice break to have a pizza with a light crunchy crust instead of one with a lot of chew.
But this is not just about pizza, they have pasta, soups, desserts and plenty of items to choose from. Its a very casual and friendly atmosphere which is great for a party of 2 or 20. I love the old fashioned picnic tables covered with red and white checkered table cloths. If you are Italian, this will especially remind you of backyard cookouts and its a great place for a casual but delicious meal when you are with friends and/or family and are not interested in the hype.
*Note. I have not been here since November 2017, but a dear friend of mine was there not long after that and had a negative encounter with someone claiming to be the manager. My friend asked for more bread, the women was less than pleasant about it, and tossed the bread on to the table. My friend (a Brazilian) was with her 5-year old son. I’ve never known her to be rude or abrasive, and she is in the customer service industry as well. What’s more, if this was in fact the manager, you know the old saying, if you don’t take care of your customers, someone else will.
