visiting this restaurant with friends for the first time, we didn't know if we should have waited or not (we were hungry!). It took only 40 minutes from the moment of our arrival to the end of our meal. Memo took care if us, he was very attentive and professional. He recommended us what to order, and he was right. The lobster lasagna was absolutely divine, same as the Linguini Delizia di Mare! I will return before I go back to Wisconsin and will bring more friends for sure!!

There is a reason that El Italiano has earned both the Golden Fork award and an Outstanding Restaurant award from Tripadvisor . . . this thirty year old Italian restaurant is a tradition in a city of good restaurants. The food is always good, a large menu and the dishes are always served by an excellent wait staff. I would give the restaurant an Excellent rating except it is very good and just short of excellent. However, this is the best Italian food in Guadalajara and the menu lacks nothing. The decor is sort of Northern Italian and when the windows are opened, like most of the year, one feels like they are dining al fresco. I have eaten both lunch and dinner here and always great food, good service and there seems to be a difference in the clientele. Lunch is business and women, dinner is couples and friends. Sometimes there are family gatherings.

The service was exceptional but the food was better! Enjoyed a couple of wonderful meals with our son and he insisted we go twice in one week! Had a beautiful Petit Syrah Wine which complimented our pasta choices perfectly. We brought home a pizza and it was simply delicious, even cold! Went both times for a late lunch and had very pleasant experiences.

with my friends, we us to go at least one a month in this fine restaurant because the menu had a great variety of Italian specialities and also good you could share your plate with your friends, for example a pizza for two, they are excellent because they have a very good pizzayolo and you could follow with a very rich lasaña and salad. the tiramisou is one of the best downtown. after some years el italiano is stile among the best.
