Had another excellent dinner there last night. It's the best pasta I've had outside of Italy -- and is better than Italy's if you have other than fresh home-made in Italy! Attention to clients is excellent, menu is consistently good and prices are consistently fair. The non-pasta dishes are delicious, too!

My favorite is his house-made spinach fettuccini with alfredo sauce and chicken. But I've enjoyed many other items on the menu as well over the past year. Lunch or dinner -- it's all great!

The pastas and sauces are creative, delicious and are made from scratch, on-site in a spotlessly clean environment. I sampled several and my hands-down favorite was the cilantro pesto. Fresh and fabulous!

The staff is upbeat and helpful. The place has a "fun vibe" but with serious attention to perfection in the meals they serve. We sat at an outdoor table in front and enjoyed a wonderfully balmy Colima evening, perfect for people-watching in this new and very happening area of town.

Freshly made pastas and sauces with recipes from professionally trained chef Jim G. ( in USA and Italy) puts this casual venue in a class all it's own. They seem to do a lot of to go business as well as their casual dining environment. We have been three times since they opened a month ago, so obviously love the food, and we don't even live in Colima, but pass through frequently on the way to the beach. You can choose your type of pasta and your accompanying sauce! Have gotten to know Memo, bilingual co owner of business and he is always welcoming and let's us know what is especially good that day. This restaurant is a real addition to Colima's food scene. It is a must if you appreciate italian food, I promise you will return, I am salivating as I write this!
