Went with a big group (~10), expected them to be happy to have customers, instead they were not very friendly and the service took forever! The food was still quite good!

We ended up at the restaurant accidentally, while walking around the neighbourhood. The food was fresh and tasty and the margaritas were very strong. 😂🍹

An excellent place for lunch. The nachos were excellent and the staff was very nice. As a This was a great place to eat when you are all pasta-ed out. For Mexican food in Italy, this place was pretty good.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
