As I devoured the tagliata, the most tender, beautifully seasoned and highest quality tenderloin of all time, I'm asking myself: How is it possible to have found the greatest Italian food on Earth all the way down in Montezuma? It's because this is the most special place on Earth and so it is fitting to have placed the incredibly talented,... More

Homemade pasta and wonderful pizzas. Pizza dough is yeasty and delicious, cures for at least 24 hours. We enjoyed lasagna, pizza, pasta with herbs, and a juicy bottle of Barbera. Cocktails and a really special outdoor space. Bring cash, they don't accept credit cards.

The pizza crudo is to die for. This place is one of the best restaurants in the area. Wood fired oven in the kitchen.

The Italian owners are very nice people. The place by itself is no easy to find as it is outside (5 minute drive) Montezuma. The food is great and the price are normal.

The food at Tierra y Fuego is super tasty. The brick oven pizza is delicious and not too expensive. The service is just right and the owners are super friendly and attentive. The location is great but the ambiance makes up for it. Go off the beaten path and get some great food.

This place is a true gem. Hidden on the Delicias road, it was a bit hard to find, but most definitely worth it. You must stop here if you are staying in the area, this is probably the best pizza I ever tried! It is genuine and delicious, also prepared by italians, it doesnt get any better than that.

The food is fresh, the desserts are unique, and the water and soda drinks are not refills... :-) Although we spent way too much money on water and soda, the food was scrumpcious. We came back the next night, too.
