The atmosphere is friendly but the food is mediocre. It's also very noisy when all tables booked. Would recommend just for drinks.

The place is located just behind porta Genova station, it is easily reachable. The food is decent. The cocktails and the Margarida especially are fantastic. If you don't fancy having dinner, you should sit at the bar and order a Margarida. It is really worth it!

We went here for tea and it was delicious. The staff were friendly and all had great service. My partner and I had the mixed taco plate which was a big serve both feeling very full afterwards.

A little bit expensive, but the food is quiet good and A LOT of it, and drinks also very tasty. I've been here the first time about 15 years ago, and it's always a good place to go for mexican food

More of a bar than a restaurant in my opinion, as the restaurant doesn't deserve a rating. High prices. Good for people who don't know Mexican food, otherwise you'd never come back.

I like the place, and the food. Once we got a table right next to a Mexican mariachos band. A bit noisy, after one hour I was getting nervous ...
