The Italian food is good and large portions. Luckily they also serve good Mexican wines and tequila. The service was very good. The kitchen is not open very late.

The only thing I should have done was ask for the pasta to be more al dente. Otherwise, it was tasty and a good spot close to our hotel for a cozy dinner.

This small restaurant, which could pass without notice, has stood here for over 50 years. Service is good but not outstanding, the place itself feels old and outdated. It the food is quite good while the prices are just a bit on the expensive side.

I am from Italian origin and was suspicious about eating Italian in Mexico City... but the group I was with insisted. It was a great surprise to find such a great spaghetti with bolognese sauce. My congratulations to the Chef... he must be Italian.

Food was ok. Caesar salad was drowning in dressing - maybe ask for it on the side. I should have returned it but I ate it. There was probably enough dressing for four salads instead of the one that I was eating. Ordered pasta with...More
