terrific food, ambience and service

With the exception of the overly doughy table bread our food (carpicco and fillet) was exceptional. The accompanying pasta was perfect. The servers were attentive and not annoying. Featuring a romantic setting with a great view, we will return.

This Italian trattoria is great for authentic brick-oven pizzas cooked right in front of you as you gaze onto the Colonial Historic Center of Cuernavaca and the 16th Century Cathedral. The pastas, salads and Italian specialities are delicious, but you need to reserve in order to get the coveted balcony seating at busy times.

This is one of the most visited restaurants in Cuernavaca. The place is in the heart of the city and you have a wonderful view of the cathedral just in front of you. The food is very good. Pizza and pasta are the specialty and the service is quite good.

The pizza and pasta are excellent. Price is also very fair for the quality. The place is fantastic, right in front of the Cathedral. The balcony has excellent view.

This isn't a gourmet Italian restaurant but it has excellent pizzas, good salads, and good basic pasta dishes. Mexicans tend to slightly overcook pasta compared to Italians, and the sauces are more or less standard fare, but I find them tasty. I especially like the ravioli.

After wander around Cuernavaca's downtown, this is a great place to stop for lunch or dinner with good pasta, salads, pizza and wine. The service is good and friendly. The best is the location just in front of the Cathedral. Ask for a table in the balcony with the view if the Cathedral of Cuernavaca

Exactly in front of the cathedral, Marco Polo offers a beautiful view from the balconies. Tue food is ok, I recommend taking the pasta over the pizza. With its familiar ambiance this place y regularly visited by locals as well as foreigners wishing to dine close to the Cathedral.
