Very Good but very expensive !

This is one of the finest Italian restaurants in Mexico. Great venue and ambiance. Spectacular wine list. Sometimes pushy with the daily specials which are very expensive.

Cantinetta il Becco is a trendy spot. The restaurant is located at Park Plaza in Santa Fe, petite mall with a couple of boutiques but great restaurants (and beautiful amenities). Tagliolini al mascarpone and Truffle Risotto a most in this place. Entrées and desserts: anyone that you choose will be a winner. Wine options are superb. This is an expensive... More

If you go with your friends or with a date, you should do a reservation in the outdoors. It is always full that's why you should make a reservation, if you want to have dinner inside there is no problem at all. This place has great wine, the shrimp carpaccio is excellent, I highly recommend it. The pasta isn't as... More

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.
