Only chain delivery pizzerias are worse than the pizza I had in this so calles italian cuisine restaurant. Every dish we tasted was appalling. There are so MANY magnificent restaurants in mexico and superb Italian ones that I see NO justification for the existence of this one. SKIP IT

We have been getting take away from 50 friends Polanco for 3 years. Service is fast. Pizzas are not only your usual ones but they have some nice ingredient options. Pastas are yummy, somewhat small on the pasta but with lots of sauce. If you ask creamy Saudis beware it is really creamy. We usually boiled pasta at home to... More

We ordered three pizzas for a family of five (three sons), which was about right. Someone else mentioned that create your own pizzas are way pricier than the menu creations, which we noticed too. But as with pretty much any restaurant in the area, it's not expensive for the neighborhood. So far, it's our favorite pizza since we moved here,... More

I love this section of the Polanco with restaurants across from the park. The service was fine- and on the plus side I learned about putting worchestire sauce on pizza. That being said- the pizza wasn't really worth it.

This is a nice place. Relaxed. Easy location. Children liked it. Not gourmet pizza but very nice and fresh. Thin base which is very nice. Service is very very nice. They even packed an unfinished pizza for kids without asking them to do it.

I love their pizza! the staff is friendly. The service is quick and the quality of the pizza is great. The only consideration is regarding the location. The restaurant opens to Emilio Castelar which is a great place, but very lively. So if you need some privacy and low noise, you must get a table deep in the restaurant.

Pizza is highly subjective, but this local Mexico City chain is a local favorite. The pizza is a thin crust with light sauce and a moderate amount of toppings. The combos are the best value. The build your own option is in my opinion overpriced. I have always found the pizzas to be quite tasty. Once it was a bit... More
