“Awesome”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

The deserts were yummy,we had the fruit passion cheesecake and choc. cheesecake,the fruit passion was the best cheesecake I have ever ate and I have had more than my share from all over the U.S. and Germany.If you are in a big hurry this is not the place 4 u,there are not that many tables and we ate outside,the staff is more than friendly,found out 2 day we only live 2 mins. from the place,and I have lived in Cuernavaca for almost 3 yrs. LOL
We will be regular customers from now on,heard from several people that they have the best rib eye steaks in Mx. and also Cesar salad is one of the best bar none,the owner Chris is from Canada,my wife grew up in N.Y. City and she said it was the best pizza she had ever ate outside of N.Y. pizza,hope this will help anyone looking for a great place 2 eat when in Cuernavaca Mor. Mx.

“My favorite restaurant in Cuernavaca!!”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

I've been putting this review off for a long time now, but I'm sitting here waiting for a delivery from Armando's so this is as good a time as any.

Cuernavaca is the black hole of culinary arts in Mexico (a country with great cuisine everywhere except here). There are only a few shining stars in this town and Armando's is definitely the brightest. The atmosphere is unimposing and quaint, like a good family restaurant in Tuscany (or New York). There's even a nice little spot out back where you can sneak off and have a smoke without offending anyone. It's a great place to take people on Tuesday nights (2 for 1 pizzas!).

Now bear in mind this is real pizza, not the stuff that you are accustomed to from the guys on mopeds (they will deliver to you by taxi; I pay about 40 pesos for delivery to downtown Cuernavaca regardless of the size of the order). Brilliant thin crust with high quality ingredients on top, cooked perfectly in what I can only assume is a brick oven (based on the taste). Every pizza on the menu is great (except the Hawaiian, because pineapple on a pizza is just wrong), the best being the Sicilian. The pastas are great (the Fra Diavolo is to die for), but my favorite is the Rib Eye (try finding a better steak in Morelos, I dare you).

I can't say enough good things about this place. If you're ever traveling in Cuernavaca and you get sick of the 3 peso tacos (or McDonald's), take an evening to try Armando's. If you live in Cuernavaca and you're sick of Pozole every Thursday (it was good for the first few months), put Armando's on speed dial. I order from them at least once per week, mostly home delivery, but it's nice to get out to their place with friends for a real Italian meal.

And say hi to Chris. I think he's a gringo like me, even though I've only ever spoken to him in Spanish.

“Delicious Italian food with a cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 October 2011

An absolute must when in Cuernavaca. I've been to this restaurant at least 10 times; not only the food is of prime quality but also Chris (the owner) will make you feel as comfortable as you could possibly ask for. One thing that I have always liked about Armando's is the paper tablecloths along with the crayons that make time fly while you wait for your meal, it's great fun when you go in group

My personal favorites are the De la Dueña Pizza, the Aglio Olio Spaghetti and the Lasagna, but as I said everything is tasty. The Chocolate cake is to die for, my family and I always ask just one slice for all since we are all a bit full afetr the main dishes, so we can all enjoy a little dessert.

The restaurant has a terrace so you can relax and enjoy Cuernavaca's beautiful weather along with a cold michelada and it also has a play area with a tire swing which the kids adore.

“One of My Favorite Food Spots in Cuernavaca!”
Reviewed 21 September 2011

We love to eat at Armando's Pizza when we're in Cuernavaca - the food is always fresh, delicious and affordable. Chris, the owner, is very accommodating to make any slight adjustments to suit your tastes. Last night my friend and I had the mixed salads (yum!!!) and the Fusilli Primavera but substituting spaghetti noodles - it was amazing! My husband always gets the spinach salad and Spaghetti Bolonesa and loves it! We were too full to order desserts but Armando's has some of the best homemade around (of course if you're from the USA it's always a little taste of home!).
I highly recommend Armando's to anyone traveling in the Cuernavaca area, especially if you're in need of some familiar food and surroundings, or if you're a resident, give it a try. Chris, the owner is a super nice guy and will make you feel "right at home"!
The only negative is a no clearly defined non smoking area.
