good food, fun place to enjoy music and wine

At Capellina they do a very nice job with their thin crust pizzas, salmon, salads and on the weekends they play wonderful music.

My wife and I stopped at this restaurant to have a glass of wine and ended up enjoying a pizza too. We sat outside and watched people and had a wonderful time...bring your camera because you can get great street photography! Service was fine and the pizza was excellent! Definitely a great spot!

I love the design of this restaurant - the murals are fun and they always have a great vibe. The pasta is excellent but the pizza is my favorite. We usually share a pitcher of "wine punch" which is very similar to sangria.

Nice quiet spot, though very close to the Jardin, for good Italianesque food and a relaxed vibe. They were usually playing jazz (recorded) on the evenings I was there, and I think they have live performances on certain days.

The staff were very accomodating of our noisy restless daughter. The house wine was much better than typical wine around here - it was very good. We ordered asian style dishes - this is very much a 'world cuisine' restaurant even if at first glance it's Italian. My tuna was cooked perfectly (i.e. not really cooked at all - at... More

A seafood stew arrived like an enormous and rich pot pie. A hot pot with an umbrella of wheat pastry was really tasty and filling. The decor offers walls possessing distinct textures. A black and white painting of a chef hovers on a brick wall and presents like a Zeus above all who dine.

Absolutely delicious. Great house wine, fabulous décor, lovely music. A bit pricey, but it's worth it. Must try the Minero Enchiladas. Staff is friendly and efficient.

This restaurant is conveniently located near the Theater Juarez. We stumbled across it the first night we arrived. There was a really good flamenco type band playing indoors. Over the bar, instead of the usual futbol match, the large flatscreen was showing different ballets, dances, old cartoons, interesting artistic stuff. The food was really good. I can't remember the exact... More

Second day in Guanajuato, we were craving Italian, don't know why but we craved pasta. After searching in tripadvisor, we found this place. We were not expecting much since we were in Mexico and not Italy. Well what can I say, not only is the decoration of the place very unique, but the pasta and the pizza was amazing! One... More
