Friendly service and tasty pasta

We had dinner here after 'needing' something European after a week in Mexico. The food was very nice - two different types of pasta with salads and everything was good and tasty. The pasta wasn't homemade, as in most restaurants anyway, but the sauces were lovely. Parmesan and fresh black pepper... read more

Visited this charming establishment for lunch and dinner several times. The food is of the highest quality. Loved the chicken parmigiana, fresh salads and marguritas. And margaritas--the best in SMA!! The staff is exceptionally attentive and helpful-- especially Jose and Alejandro. The owner/manager is just a real gem as she creates an atmosphere of delight.

Went on a Monday night. For 230 pesos you get an appetizer, entree, dessert and a glass of wine. Very reasonable price. Honestly, food was just average Italian food, not bad but nothing to write home about. We went on a Monday night and had the place to ourselves. Servers were very attentive and friendly.

A lovely restaurant with nice atmosphere. Great wine selection. The pizzas we ordered had delicious toppings, but the pizza dough was mediocre. I make my own pizza at home, and this was simply not good enough. The past looked good though, I should have chosen one of their pasta dishes instead of pizza.
