We had a really good dinner on a balcony with a great view of the plaza and a nearby church. My pesto pasta dinner was really tasty, as was my wife's bolognesa pasta. Our wine was good and not too expensive. The bread and bread sticks, with cheese spread, were fine as well. Our waiter was attentive and spoke both... More

My husband and I chose this place mostly for the view from the balcony, but also because of a craving for Italian food. We were not disappointed in either respect. We ordered a bottle of Italian wine and shared the spinach salad with prosciutto. My husband ordered the vegetarian lasagna and I had the bass with shrimp and capers. All... More

Good Italian Food, nothing special, but passes. Steak was good and cooked as to ordered. Companion had a spaghetti type sauce which also was good. Seemed to be a lot of staff, one finally took charge and we had a pleasant evening.

After 5 days in Mexico we thought we would try some Italian food, especially based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We both ordered the lasagna bolognese, which we had to send back after 1 bite as it was between room temperature and luke warm. Once it came back heated it was ok, but nothing to rave about in general. Having said... More

If it's not too cold, angle for one of the balcony tables that overlook the Jardin Union and enjoy the view while your chow down on some good Italian food.
