“The gem of Elk Grove!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

We have been going to Todo Un Poco for years, & we are so thankful to have a unique dining experience in Elk Grove (which tends to only offer chain-style restaurants). From the cool atmosphere to the incredible food, we are never disappointed when we dine there. We can choose from artfully crafted Mexican cuisine or flavorful Italian food that always delivers. The staff is always friendly & accommodating which makes visiting Todo Un Poco a fun & distinctive dining experience.

“Laguna's Own Todo Un Poco”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Todo Un Poco has been a mainstay in Laguna for years. It has a unique take on Mexican and Italian food, splashing each dish with a little flare. We like going there when we tire of the endless chain restaurants. They always have served us well and they always seem to have customers, so we are not they only ones that like them.

“Fun place, signature food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

This place is much more special than you would expect in Elk Grove. It really belongs in the more trendy parts of downtown Sacramento than in a suburban strip mall. However, it's worth the drive if you want a very uniquely artistic environment with food that is anything but run of the mill. The owners pour their heart into their work and share their love of their food with the clientele by welcoming you at your table. Marie makes you you feel like a valued guest in her home. The food was great. My only remark is that it is both Mexian and Italian but the Italian food has more of a Mexican taste to it than Italian. The marinara had too much of a salsa flavor for me. As one who does not enjoy Mexican food but totally loves Italian food, i felt that the flavors were leaning more in the Mexican direction. Additionally, for persons who are sensitive to spiciness, the Mexican flavor of the Italian food may not be the most comfortable. All in all however, for foodies, this is the place to go.
