Authentic and delicious Mexican cuisine served by friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Atmosphere is not fancy, but very comfortable, homey and welcoming. Italo's features authentic Mexican dishes that many Mexican restaurants in this area do not. Quality of food was superb. Can't wait to return!

Some of the best margaritas I have ever had, and I have frequented various Mexican restaurants. Food is absolutely delicious, too. Servers very friendly. Ambience is ok, not fancy, but comfortable.

We parked on the street just a short walk from the restaurant. We have been there a couple of times for lunch, and have easily found parking both times.
