“Best Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is not an overstatement!!! I never thought I would have found an authentic Italikan restaurant this good in Mexico but it is amazing!!!!! It's on the corner of 5th ave and I think 22nd. If you are in the area def try it. Lasagna amazing and Tiramisu to die for.

“Great Italian food”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant. The homemade pastas and the bread are delicious.
The tiramisu is just to die for. Highly recommended.

“Good meal”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

The place is a bit expensive compare to other restaurant on the 5th. But okay the food was great and the service was perfect. I would not go again, but still it was a super meal.

“Simply FANTASTIC!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We got the recommendation for this restaurant from the concierge at our hotel. We are loyal followers of TA but had already done enough trolling up and down 5th and wanted something different. "Fresh" doesn't even begin to describe the experience! With a chef out front hand rolling pasta as entertainment, you KNOW you're in for a treat! Simply delicious food (don't miss the calamari appetizer-HEAVENLY) and the service was impeccable. We'll definitely be back!
