“A nice surprise!”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

About four years ago, when I moved back to the States, this was the last restaurant I visited in San Miguel. The space was small, smokey yet, the food was good.

Yesterday, I found many changes. The restaurant moved to the building next door, the smoke has disapperad and the roof top terrace offers beautiful views of San Miguel while you enjoy excellent food. That part still remains.

My companion and I tried three different dishes, all excellent preparations. First, the Aranzinnis, a breaded risotto stuffed with various meats and mozzarella cheese and a chipotle dressing), moist and gigantic as also were the Polpette Formaggi, two pan roasted meatballs made with lamb, pork and veal, accompanied by a pomodoro (tomato) sauce and ricotta cheese, a bit dry perhaps because it must be a challenge to cook them properly and keep the ideal moisture. I would suggest to make them smaller and serve four instead of two. And, finally, a Porcini Risotto with a touch of Truffel oil to die for. A perfectly cooked rice with all the ingredients properly balanced for an incedible taste.

Service was prompt and professional. The decoration was okay but, as pointed out, the terrace is very romantic and the views absolutely wonderful.

In my personal opinion, this is one of the best Italian restaurants in San Miguel, in spite of the French name and the prices are also very reasonable.

“nice roof top garden---very average food”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

I have been several times and order different items on the menu as this place is often recommended, but I always leave disappointed. All of the menu is extremely average and often the pasta is so overdone that it tastes like rubber. They should do better. It does have a pretty roof top garden with a nice view.

We were lucky to discover this gem located near our rental in San Miguel. We dined on the rooftop, the view is spectacular. Dinner was delicious, service was excellent. We will be back again. This place is a delight. Everything was perfect.

If you want to have a good Italian meal overviewing San Miguel Allende, this is the place to go.
Good menu with choices of favorite Italian food.
Very good service, with personal attention.
