Good attention from the staff, but the food is very out of time. I tasted the lasagne with meat but it's more meat than lasagne I mean I couldn't taste pasta just a lot of meat with a bit of pasta.

If they used real tomatoes instead of canned it would be great A bad copy of a canned prego sauce. Noisy place it feels cheep and it is

THis is a solid and reliable choice for Italian-style food (not authentic or fine-dining). Well located right in the park, live jazz Wednesday nights. Good food and good service. Met the love of my life there!

Lovely staff, quick service, wide variety of dishes, Italian restaurant...I ordered beef (steak wrapped in prosciutto and cheese)...not good, overcooked. I had steak across the road two nights earlier at 'Basilica' which is like the 'sister' restaurant of Al Rojo, and it was much better. I can't comment on the Italian style dishes.

We went to the location in El Tesoro. We decided to get lunch right at 12, as Sunday gets very crowded We walk in at 12 on the dot... The manager tells us we have to wait till 12. Had to double check my watch. I thought it might just be us, but this manager had a bad attitude with... More

We were looking for an Italian place near our apartment, so this fit the bill. It's a large place with soccer on the TV's. They also had a live jazz combo there that night. Food wise, it was pretty average. We split a "large" bowl of Bolognese @ $9 US. It came with bread and barely filled us. They also... More

So expensive and really bland foods. Nice live music but left hungry. Wish we had gone somewhere else.

We went there to try their pizzas. We ordered the chicken bbq and vegeteriana. Both pizzas looked and tasted like frozen pizzas. Not what we expected especially because the place looked really nice.

Came here on December 25th, because there weren't too many restaurants open. Ordered the white house wine and gave it right back - it tastes horrible! The vegetarian pizza was one of the worst pizzas I've ever had - looked and tasted like the ones you buy for 1 € at the discounter to prepare at home. Service wasn't particularly... More

Horrible. Please avoid this unless u have lost a bet. I made the mistake of coming here and ordering vegetarian salad (their grilled veggie). I liked the description. But what a shocker. Their four different vegetables were right out of a can. They didn't even care to drain out the cheap vinegar. Two minutes after eating I had blisters in... More
