Incredible cuisine

Amazing duck pizza, and a calzone starter that I'd recommend to any Italian anywhere. Great location and ambiance. Fun jazz music on a Saturday night. Super wine recommendation too. A true gastronomic experience in the heart of the tourist zone - like a rose among thorns. Very good service... read more

Whoever said this place was bad is totally wrong. Arrived st 11 pm and service was fast with live music and all. Very nice ambiance. Kitchen closes at 12 am and the restaurant is mexican fusion with French and italian. Highly recommended and will return.

Bold fusion proposal between italian and something else that comes out as too much. Poor service, it took ages to get our meal and food wasn't that good.

For our last meal of our month in GTO, we wanted to be in the center of the activity. This place was perfect! We sat outside and were kept entertained by the passers by, and yet avoided being hassled by the mariachis, shawl sellers, etc. that were a constant when we ate out on the Jardin Union. The wine list... More

My partner and I made our reservation following a recommendation. The restaurant itself is well situated and has a super mural of a chef high on one wall. So far nothing to disappoint! The menu appeared confused, with bizarre combinations of ingredients a feature of most dishes. When our food arrived, it confirmed our fears. My food was arrived jumbled... More

It is in the heart of the city center very historic, We had 30 people for dinner and they did a fantastic job of keeping the drinks coming! We had many dishes on the menu and they were all fantastic!! The shrimp pizza was amazing!! The wine list was very good,

Even if you don't like Italian food you will find the building and decor fascinating. It is a 400 year old structure just a block off the Jardin. The six of us enjoyed different meals so we gave the kitchen a good workout. We enjoyed pizza, spaghetti, fettuccine, enchiladas, and salmon. There was a large Mexican birthday party near us...

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
