During one of the increasingly rare occasions that a friend and I get to share a meal, the thought of showing them San Pedro Square [in general] and Pizza Bocca Lupo [in particular] seemed ideal, especially when their pear-gorgonzola-arugala-balsamic pizza sounded so delectable.
As we approached, the young lady behind the register greeted us smiling and friendly. We briefly surveyed the menu, though we already knew what we wanted, and asked off-hand what one of their beers tasted like, to which she replied and pleasantly informed us that alcohol purchased from them must be enjoyed at their counter or at least within the boundaries of their restaurant. Good to know.
Our order took 10 minutes, tops, but thankfully we had arrived before the rush of Shark fans and downtown business people getting off work.
She presented to us a rustic thin crusted pizza topped generously in peppery arugala drizzled with tangy balsamic vinegar (added after baking as to remain fresh and unwilted?). Underneath, an intermingling layer of molten pungent gorgonzola and sweet sliced pear. The pooling of ingredients at the center of the pie makes it heavy and a little saturated, but the crust holds up, remaining firm enough to fold and eat without utensils.
It was, as anticipated, delicious.
The other pizzas described on their overhead chalk-written menu sound equally tasty.This is definitly light fare for the price, but its done well so be ready to be sated by flavor rather than fill - the BFF and I finished one pizza between the two of us, two quarter-of-a-whole slices each, with beer and wine.
I'll definitely make a return visit.
Pizza. Beer. Pretty people. Hip new hangout. What else do you want? Did I mention pretty people? Just wanted to make sure.Recommended for:Trendsters

Pizza Bocca Lupo have an authentic Neapolitan oven and the pizzas are decent. It is located inside the San Pedro Square Market together with a few other over-the-counter eateries and pubs. No table service here. You order from the counter and your buzzer will go off when the food is ready. The dining area is shared among different tenants. This makes it a great get-together place for larger groups. Everyone could order whatever they want and hang out at the cozy outdoor patio.
Margherita is my top choice for Italian pizza but I don't theirs here. The basil are not nearly strong enough to make the taste pop and the whole pie was too soggy. The meat version (Joe's Special) with mushroom, sausages and extra mozzarella is a lot more flavorful. The dough is great though. I could chew on the crust all day long.
