excellent location, good food

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. There are some... read more

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.

I have been here in a number of occasions, all of them with either friends, family or couple, but the food is not that great, they lost their track loooong ago. I keep going as a choice by someone else but the bathrooms are awful, the food is lame and flavorless, the service is bad and it is not clean... More

The view is nice if you happen to get a balcony table. Food? Not so good. I asked for a meat lasagna, in this italian restaurant. It was big, but no good. I really tried to find the meat, and only discovered ham!. The sauce wasnt good either. Overall it wasnt bad, but for sure, it wasnt what I expected.... More

I live close to this restaurant and so have eaten there many times. The food is absolutely fine and reasonably priced, though it is nothing special. The location is what sets this place apart - opposite the cathedral and in the heart of the historic centre of Cuernavaca. You have to sit on the terrace, in view of the cathedral,... More

Try to get a table by the balcony and you have a beautiful view of Calle Hidalgo and the Cathedral grounds across the street. In the evening some of the buildings are lit up and it is a lovely spot for a meal. The pizzas are great. Stay away from the fresh salads.
