It's a nice place to eat and have a bottle of wine, the service is a little slow but the food is good.

Pizza is highly subjective, but this local Mexico City chain is a local favorite. The pizza is a thin crust with light sauce and a moderate amount of toppings. The combos are the best value. The build your own option is in my opinion overpriced. I have always found the pizzas to be quite tasty. Once it was a bit... More

I have to say that we only went there because some other italian restaurants were closed but after trying the food I can totally recommend it. Our waiter was totally engaged to his job and had the lovely detail of letting us try the wine before he pour the whole glass making a big difference because in Mexico city they... More

On a business trip, I was seated by an unsmiling unwelcoming host into an empty restaurant. Order taken by another unsmiling sullen member of staff and delivered by the same miserable person. Whilst the pizza was ok, not sure why it needs to be placed on a stand above the condiments which meant I had to stand up to take... More

I rate 50 Friends 4 starts because I like the pizza there. I can order it exactly the way I want it without hassle or complaints, and they always get it right. Good service generally (though it can be a little touch and go when they are crowded). For appetizers, I like their grilled vegetables - good to each something... More

Location is very good, in fron of the Parque Lincoln. Food though is average and expensive for what it is. I would say it is not a bad choice but there are better options along Emilio Castelar. NOTE: I paid here once with my credit card and my card was ripped for 3000 euro the week after

The place is generally quite expensive for what they serve that's a fact. The pizza is OK and the service is OK too. What I found absolutely OUTRAGEOUS, was the "pan y salsa" charged for each person 18 pesos without informing us. When I asked for clarification of what were this extra cost which I was not aware of, they... More

I felt like I was in Europe... We stopped by for a late dinner and shared pizza, carpaccio, salad, and risotto. Everything was delicious. We were five people: 2 Spaniards, 2 Russians and a Mexican. I would definitely go back during the day. I cannot wait to try the coffee. :) and dessert :)

Best enviroment is 50 friends of Antara, Polanco. The atmosphere is great, the design, the happy free relaxed spirit that everyone has. From the most delicious pizza in Mexico and the wine is WAW!

Whenever my husband has the opportunity to decide where we're having dinner, he always picks 50 Friends. The pizza is decent. The service is pretty good, and on Sunday, it's often the perfect place to have a relaxing family lunch and then head over to Lincoln Park for a playdate. In the evenings, this pizzeria is populated by families, trendsetters... More
