Very nice home-style Italian Food!

The place is a very tight fit (they now have a location in back of the Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores as well) but the Italian fare is some of the best in Mexico City and at a reasonable price tag as well. A good call in the Condesa or the Centro.

First of all, the food is quite good. However the environment is very poor. The place is very neglected, it feels more like a warehouse (there are boxes of a product of a kind everywhere). Service is poor, waiters are moody. We left "only" 10% tip and still our waiter was very upset at the end and didn't even say... More

When I got there the guy who greeted me looked like he was a bit annoyed that I was going to eat there. In fact none of the staff there smiled, except once (see below). I got the feeling they would rather close up early and go home although it was barely 8PM. I will say that the servers were... More

Typical Italian food. Both my dining partner and I agreed that it had a nice homey quality. I ordered the onion soup and the lasagna. My friend ordered some spaghetti dish and the lentil soup. The soups were just ok. I really liked the lasagna and my friend really enjoyed his spaghetti. For dessert I ordered figs with cream. It... More

This is just one more of the many foreign restaurants who promise serving real Italian food, that can actually be found anywhere else. Yet the prices are just too high for the rather poor quality of the food served. If you have never been to Italy you may be impressed positively, but if you did travel to Italy you know... More

Everything was delicious. Went to the restaurant on Independencia in the Centro HIstorico. Nice place to eat if you find yourself near Alameda Central/Bellas Artes or the Museo de Arte Popular. Very good service. Salad fresh and with a delicious balsamic dressing -- perfectly dressed. Delicious glass of Italian wine, good ravioli with a very fresh and flavorful sauce. Lovely... More

I went to this restaurant because it had been recommended to me. The restaurant is a cozy Italian restaurant. The food and service was good, as recommended but; there was a nasty surprise when I got my bill. I was charged the equivalent of $3 for the bread basket (two stale pieces of bread not consumed) and the cleaning charge... More

I have been in a lot of restaurants in Mexico and this one was one of the worst. My gnochi looked like a mashed potatoe, the sauce had no taste, the bread was oily. It doesnt have our recommendation and we are never coming back.

For years this place has offered the best Italian food in Mexico City. Tiny place with great service and freshly made pasta. Very recommended.
