This is where I go when I really want to treat myself, usually sharing the experience with special friends and outside with my dog in good weather. I have explored the menu and never been disappointed by the escargot or crepes or any of the entrees, yet I seem to keep going back for whatever type of fresh carpaccio is... More

It is quite the experience to eat a greek salad in an italian restaurant run by a french man in Mexico! For that reason alone you must go. The decor is very quaint and homey with romantic lighting. The food was delicious and made of quality ingredients. After enjoying an unrushed and lovely hour enjoying our meal we got up... More

The menu seemed a little high, but we had come in for early snack. We shared a salad and a pizza which was reasonable. We had mojitos. Service is pleasant. No complaints.

A lovely location to grab a nice, quiet dinner. Guest chef Christian Gritti made a marvelous Italian dinner during this locations ITALIAN RESTAURANT WEEK. The French menu also offered delicious choices. Prices are reasonable and the restaurant offers a lovely wine selection. Live music on the weekends really adds more flavor than other restaurants in the area. And no, not... More
