First diner in Mexico, glad one of the waiters could speak some English to help me out in this 'Spanish language only' restaurant. But that is not a negative thing. I enjoyed my diner that was prepared with care and nicely presented. I would come back!

I had the best rissotto frutti di mare ever! As an appetaizer I also had pulpo and a very good malbec. The food: high quality and the price is very reasonable. What to say about service: excellent. There was a violinist playing around, it was amazing having a dinner with live music in a friendly enviroment. I highly recommend this... More

Nice Italian restaurant with a beautiful decoration. I went to La Strega last Valentine’s day. A musical group was playing live and the atmosphere was very intimate and romantic. The staff that day was very attentive, willing to make all kinds of suggestions. The food was delicious but what is most appealing about this place is the atmosphere and decor.... More

This place serves mostly Italian food with a couple of international plates. Flavor is above average as well as service. Need to use valet for parking as there is limited parking. If staying at Dakota Holiday Inn or Crown Plaza this is a must as food is much better than hotel and is within 1 block

This fairy tail restaurant serves excellent Italian food, excellent spaghettis and Milanese chicken and beef. However the decoration and atmosphere takes all the attention, La Strega (Witch in Italian), takes you into a trip to the world of fairy tales and witch movies. I´m sure that a witch house/castle should look like this, so don´t miss the opportunity to sneak... More

The place has a great theme, delicious Italian food, but the service from the waiters it's bad, they forgot us, we had to look around for other waiters, I order coffee but they didn't offer me any sugar or milk, we had to order the menu from the manager to order dessert... if you don't mind a lame service, then...

We were taken good care of from the moment we entered the door. Had a little trouble reading the menu (think it was in italian) and got something completly different than I thouht I ordered, but it didn't matter, it taster amazing. The decor was a bit dated, but the service was good and we really enjoyed the whole experience.

We had an early dinner, and it was great. These waiters know their business. The minute you sit down they are ready to they will provide for you every need. The head waiter, Carlos, took the order and answered all of our questions. The pastas were prepared perfectly "Al dente"... Our hotel was the Crowne Plaza and it was one... More
