Had a good business dinner. Attentive service and good wine list. The tuna dishes are quite good. Good variety of table set ups including tables for large groups. Definitely one of best restaurants in Tampico.

Excellent flavour, good location with parking, elegant casual dining with Italian salads, pizza and other main dishes. Try the Basilico Salad it is one of my favorites and leave room for the apple dessert.

Every time we order to go from here or seated at the restaurant is a great experience. Their salads and pizzas are the best, with top quality ingredients.
