Cosy atmosphere, nice food, quite pricey

During a few days in Mexico City we explored Condesa one evening but didn't find it as hip/trendy/exciting as the guidebooks suggested - but we come from central London and know New York City well, so maybe the comparison is unfair.

We stopped here on our way home from museum of anthropology. You could sit outside or in and the place was decorated like you were in Italy. We had a great pizza but folks next to us had pasta and we wished one of us would have tried that. It looks like a spot where lots of locals go.

La Gloria is one of our best places to stop by at La Condesa. Enjoy the changing atmospheres and find a different art exposition every month or so. Every visit feels never the same but the taste will always be great.

I went with a friend to have lunch since she lives in Condesa area (a trendy area in Mexico I don't know why). The restaurant is in a corner so it has tables outside on the street where you are constantly bothered by people selling all kind of stuff, asking for money, etc, so that's not a very nice experience....

Stopped by for dinner. Nice and friendly, a bit pricey, good food. Supposedly there is no smoking, but people smoked outside and the smoke drifted inside.

If your family needs a respite from chiles, carne asada, etc. here is a place to go for a very nice bowl of pasta, a cocktail and sidewalk dinner al fresco.

Food might be described as modern Italian. Very good - not cheap by Mexico City standards, but reasonable for quality elsewhere in metro North America. Inventive but not challenging combinations, very flavourful. Awesome neighbourhood. Unusually "funky" vibe for Mexico City (would fit in back home in Montreal or Austin, Tx). Would definitely go again. I had an interesting mushroom linguine... More

We were in Condesa for the entire evening and decided to have dessert before going back to our Hotel in Polanco. We really had to search the menu to finally find the dessert! The menu folded in such a way that it was almost as if the desserts were not a part of it :) Anyhow, the server suggested the... More

We loved our first visit to Cafe la Gloria. It was crowded late on a Monday night, with people vying for tables, which I take as a good sign. The menu was Italian/international, and we had some of the best pasta in our lives here, on par with our favorite meals in Italy. The fettuccine with mushrooms and cheese and... More
