Dropped in and was surprised at the quality of the food and the service. I had a Seafood Molcajete that came covered with a layer of dough that was baked as part of the dish. The dough kept the heat in and was a tasty extra to sop up the sauce in the seafood. It was made with a white... More

This was not the first time I visited this restaurant and based on all my experiences it will not be my last. It has a very small patio but allows for you to enjoy a meal and watch the people walk by. I would highly recommend the Portobello Polenta appetizer. I am not a Polenta fan but I find myself...

Came here for a Bday dinner with friends. Spacious feeling with a high ceiling. Ambient lighting with nice, simple decor. Good service. Menu is of salads, traditional mexican dishes, meat and fish dishes...but the pizza! May not think pizza as a good dining experience but here it is! Margaritas are strong and in quite the huge glass! Prices slightly higher... More

One of the best restaurants in Guanajuato. Just half block from the Jardín Unión, with very good meat. The salmon was also great.

We've passed by La Capellina on a daily basis thinking, oh, let's try it, and then not. But we were told they had great seared tuna, and we were craving fresh pescado. The fish is said to be flash frozen. 3 of us ordered the Asian seared tuna with interesting veggies--jicama, cucumber, red onion, carrot, green pepper and pineapple, in... More

Very nice service, and food was great. Well worth a try, and the best restaurant I found in my two weeks in Guanajuato.

Stopped and took a seat at this small Italian cafe on the sidewalk. We had wonderful onion soup with a wonderful salad with strawberries, raspberries, cashews, mushrooms and a delicious dressing with fresh French bread and a great glass of Merlot. Service and food were excellent an also the strolling university kids.

A quiet restaurant near the Jardin Union. This restaurant has a sophisticated menu and the kitchen to back it up. Try the salmon carpaccio to start, then sit back and enjoy a great meal with a bottle of wine from an extensive selection.

Went twice, stuck to the pizza options which were both excellent. Good selection of wines. Had 3 different salads on our visits, all excellent. Service was excellent from all the staff, especially Aldo. The last night there was a live jazz band which was great. Cannot comment on the food other than the pizza Price for a pizza, 2 salads,...

Living in a city nearby, I have been in Guanajuato downtown countless times taking visitors. After a long walk, each time we try one of the restaurants in the downtown (Teatro Juarez, Parque Unión) and they are always disappointing. This place is, by far, the best in the área. It might not be the best restaurant I have been to,... More
