This is a quaint little Italian restaurant a block off of 5th ave. The service and the food were both out of this world good which is not something I typically expect in Mexico. My wife thought that the Jumbo grilled garlic shrimp fettucine with red sauce was the best shrimp dish she has ever had which is why we... More

We ate in many places over the past two years and have come to the conclusion that La Famiglia is THE Best Italian in town... Fettucini w Shrimp or Chicken, Lasagna, Pizza were outstanding. While 500 Gramos Grill lists higher on TA as Italian, that would only be for their steaks. If you want a full and true Italian restaurant... More

The homemade fettuccine is really of a high quality, and I enjoyed my selection if accompanying sauce (creamy tomato and Italian sausage). My glass of red wine was also more than passable. A very nice Italian.

When you feel like a change from all the Mexican food and get a craving for some great Italian food give La Famiglia a try ! The food and service were fantastic and I had a sensational gnocchi bolognese followed by an excellent tiramisu. So much better and more reasonable than anything you will find on Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue)

This restaurant is not a look of a 5 star place but I tell you what; be prepared to slap your mama. I had the ravioli and my niece had the jumbo shrimp fettuccine. I ordered a Moscow Mule, so amazing. The food just gave me an orgasmic experience. Please stop in, the sign may say La Famiglia Pizzeria, but... More

We have been here many times and it was one of my favorites. I'm not sure what happened but it just wasn't the quality we were used to. Don't get me wrong, it's still good but no longer can I rate it a five. It used to hard to get into without advanced reservations. The last two times the place... More

This was a very small quaint restaurant two blocks off the main drag. Friends we were with had eaten there in the past. This was some of the best food I had eaten in a long time. The pizza was outstanding and our friend ordered the steak with a peppercorn Gorgonzola sauce that was absolutely outstanding. Can't recommend this enough!
