We stopped by today lured in by the smells of this little Italian deli and restaurant. Four tables. Cook, waiter, and cashier all rolled into one gracious owner from Turino. We loved the vegetarian pasta as well as the sausage roll; and we drooled over the pizzas, salads, freshly baked breads, deserts, and antipastos. Delightful for lunch or take-out. Venture away from the beach and enjoy this typical (and safe) neighborhood with its many small restaurants like Magna Magna, plus save yourself a bundle of money. We had a fabulous lunch for no more than 140 MX pesos. I'm a local and this restaurant is one of my haunts!

A true gem. Small bistro by the owner/chef. Homemade pastas, pizza and sandwiches as well as a burger. Only four tables. Prices are $$, english spoken. The carne raviolis were full of flavor and filled generously.
The chocolate mousse was toe-curling, yes light, rich and creamy and 25pesos.

We walked by this place a few times while living down the street from it. On a whim, and when it had opened up in the afternoon, we decided to try it out and it. was. AWESOME. We got two panini's, the Rafaello (sp?) and the Donatello, and found them to be incredibly priced, super tasty, and very unique! Each panini was $25 pesos (about $2 USD) and served as a great lunchtime portion. Literally, the best panini's we've ever had! We also got two glasses of the limonada, which the owner had blended, not stirred, which made the drink all the more tasty!

We can't wait to try the rest of the menu!!!

Ate here for dinner on a weeknight and had a great experience. The bruschetta was surprisingly good as was the platter of mixed italian sausages, which was actually a plate of sliced cured meats but did not disappoint. The chicken scallopini was super moist and flavorful. The seafood risotto was excellent and cooked with red wine rather than white, which was new for me. The vegetarian risotto was done the same way, and it was also delicious (both had great texture). Husband said seafood pasta (frutti de mare) lacked seafood flavor. Our 14-month old was getting fussy and a sweet lady from the kitchen brought out two of her daughter's toys to play with, which was so sweet and really helped! Would definitely dine here again (lunch specials looked great and were priced very well) if given the opportunity.
