I have visited this place several times. Sometimes the food is great and others it is cold and terrible. I think it depends on who is the cook on the day you are there.

If you are looking for a nice Italian restaurant in the midst of Xalapa, I highly suggest you try Posodoro. In a very beautiful alley, this restaurant is an excellent and not pricy option for tourists.

Does the menu include ravioli in sauce AND does the menu include tortellini in sauce and/or broth? I am really missing a good Italian fix. I won't bother with the pizza, nothing can match real Chicago pizza.
