Good dining with a beautiful view

We had a fine meal at this restaurant. It is a bit of a climb from the Jardin de la Union, but the view is worth it. The fare is Italian. The guajillo chili salsa, with garlic and olive oil was quite nice. Went to the city market the following day and bought a bag of guajillos for my own.

We visited on a rainy day and the owner was kind enough to let us in a little early while the crew was still cleaning up the place. The service continued to be great through the evening. Views were also great however the food left much to be desired. A couple of cold plates were good however the main plates... More

El Gallo Pitagorico has a lot to offer---great views of the city, a romantic setting, original folk art on the walls and friendly service. We had a pasta dish and fish which at best were average. However, the cappuccino and tiramisu were delicious. We wished the main dishes had been better, because the setting is very special. A word of... More

The restaurant is right in the center of Guanajuato (off Jardin de la Union) with stunning views over the city. It is a small and cute venue. However the food is average and the prices pretty steep (for being in Mexico). The fussili pesto pasta is dry and not very tasty, the bread is dry supermarket bread, and the selection... More

If they had served us nothing but water, the seat and the view would have been worth what we paid. Very good & reasonably priced food with a view that will live on in your photos and memory.

The new owner (beginning in July 2014) is fantastic. She speaks English, is very nice, and she is making El Gallo Pitagorico even better. She told us she had to let some workers go because they weren't that good at what they do. I saw her training the employees to be perfectionists. I first visited El Gallo Pitagorico about 10...

Definitely one of the best places to eat in Gto, I loved the spinach lasagna and the eggplant! The view of this place is magnificent, the first time I went was perfect, we were empty in the whole place. Second time was very disappointing as it was very crowded, we made a reservation which was cancelled once we got there,... More

A little difficult to find, on the street behind the Teatro Juarez. It is a blue house up lots and lots of steps.The view is lovely and the restaurant small, quaint and charming. The food is Italian and I found it to be just a bit better than average. I had meat lasagna and it was a bit dry as... More
