“Our absolute favorite Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

First of all the food is amazingly good, beautifully presented and they have an extensive menu, which does change from time to time. The price is right for the quality of food and service. There's a lovely exterior patio for smokers, with a fountain. Valet parking makes everything easy, and you are just minutes away from many shops and attractions, plus the Hospital Del Carmen.
Their eggplant parmigiana is the best I have ever eaten anywhere.
It is on our list of regular places to eat when in Guadalajara.

“good food good prices...great family place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

just left italianos after a so so meal
it was a great value and good price
it just lacked a little flavor for me
the garlic bread was to laugh at so don't dare order that
the saladas were big and hearty
so is the home made pizza
we had the chicken parm and the salmon
both were delicious and priced under 150 pesos
they had california wine but would not sell it by the glass
the by the glass wine was not worth the price the wanted(84 pesos) so
i had a sprite they had affordable red but i don't drink red
i went with the wife
if i had a family i diffenently eat here
great family value
wait staff needs training

“A classic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

This restaurant has been a great option from a long time now. With so many places coming and going, El Italiano is a place to enjoy a nice italian meal and an excellent tiramisu.

“What a great pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Nice place, perfect for family group.
The atmosphere is very kind and the restaurant is very suggestive; it seems to be in a restaurant somewhere in Tuscany!
We had pizza (delicious) and fish, fresh and very well cooked. Good selection of wines!
And you should not forget to try the Tiramisu...it's soooo good!
Definitely a place I wish to visit again!
