Very nice set up and view. Expensive, snobby waiters and patrons. The only water available is bottled. Sincerely there are many, many places with excellent food reasonable prices, nice waiters and better ambience, why go ther?

It is a very nice italian restaurant. But is very expensive. Since its in one of the poshiest neighborhoods, the crowd, obviously is very snob. Even waiters are snob. You will find extraordinary bread, one of the yummiest burratas in the city, nice pastas and really good desserts. Go for lunch and sit in the terrace. You will have a... More

We only wound up here because CC was completely booked. The food was fine but certainly not for the price. The wait staff could not have been more rude and inattentive, especially since the restaurant was not particularly busy while we were there. Our Mexican host spent most of our trip apologizing for this restaurant. There are much better options... More

The restaurant has a nice setting and atmosphere, but they confuse being classy with being snob. Food is ok, wine list is way too large, and service is good but not up to the price charged.

This is my favorite restaurant in Mexico. I went to the Santafe Cantinetta and had octopus carpaccio and cacio e peppe which is pasta with cheese and pepper. I tasted my friends dishes too and could not tell which was better than the other. Service is just excellent, place is beautiful, margaritas are great.

Excelent food in a very well decorated space with good service. They offer a good selection of wines and depending on the time of the year, there are some specials. Please try ant risotto. They are to die for. It can be quite expensive but its quality is worth it.

Location is modern and with a modern italian touch. Food choice is not based on traditional italian dishes but on particular combinations within italian cuisine. So no pizza & pasta place but rather a upper italian cuisine approach. I took the "affogato di barolo" that is veal meat slowly cooked in barolo red wine for 8hours. Very soft and tender... More

Our waiter Francisco, really knows his job and can speak wit a lot of expertise about the menu. The veranda is beautiful. Food is really good, Shrimp carpaccio and tuna carpaccio were excellent. Risottos are big and good. It is an expensive place, around 800 pesos per person. Reserve ahead.
