“Blah!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Definetly not the best italian restaurant in town, and the service is slow. We started with an artichoke antipasto with goat cheese, good flavor, but it was very greasy (yuck!). The entrees were good, I think the best one was the salmon (special of the day). The tiramisu, in my opinion was too sweet, but the rest of my party seemedto enjoy it. I would go back, but prefer not to.
Beware of the valet parking it costs $40 pesos for 3 hours, and then star charging $40 pesos for every hour.

“Hnnh???”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Never got to eat here (Condesa restaurant). Many places closed on New Year's in Mexico City so made a reservation for Giacovanni on Sonora in Condesa. Fifty minutes before the time scheduled, an email popped up telling me that the restaurant had cancelled my reservation. What's that about?

“Best pizza in town”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Over a period of 5 years, we've tried many pizza restaurants throughout town, and if you like well-done, thin crust pizza baked in wood-burning ovens, there is no better than this place. Even when it comes delivery, it's excellent. The toppings are always fresh and they never pour anything on too thick. You can taste every ingredient you request.

We've been to all 4 locations over the years and they've always been consistently great.

As good as the best in Napoli!

“Cool place for italian food at interlomas”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

This is an excellent place to eat Italian food at a reasonable price and quantity. I've been coming here for a couple of years, every time I'm in Mexico and I would highlight its simple but good menu and wine list which is complete and normal but as I said before at a reasonable price. highly recommended the "CALAMARI FRITTI", which although they have changed the presentation they still very good.
