We truly enjoyed our excellent carpaccio, salads and wood oven pizza, plus a very decent wine list. The owner also offered a complimentary plate of marinated eggplant - the best! The interior court provides privacy and beautiful natural lighting, all together a lovely experience.

As other reviewers have said, this is an opportunity to eat genuine Italian cuisine in Mexico. Although you can get pizza here, this restaurant is really for those who know and appreciate dishes like vitello tonato and osso buco. The owner is from Turin and...More
