Really enjoyed this restaurant. Great selection of Mexican and Italian dishes. Fresh and homemade pastas, creative Mexican dishes and very friendly, fast service. They really made you feel welcomed. The bar side of the restaurant is a little better to sit on because the main dining room gets a little loud. Make reservations, they are always crowded.

Best meal Ive had in Detroit. Don't let the comments about the location scare you away. Valet Parking. We took our family of eight ages 9 to 50. Everyone loved their meal and all need to take some of it home. Reasonably priced with very generous portions. Fun atmosphere. Excellent friendly waiter. Will defiantly go back again.

Chef Norberto makes outstanding Mexican and Italian food. His guacamole is outstanding and handmade pastas satisfy my Italian family. We have been known to drive for over a hour just to eat here.

Food is a unique combination. Neighborhood is sketchy but the same reliable guard is there to watch out for you and your car. I feel safe. Staff friendly and makes an effort to greet you like a regular. food is always good and fresh. Chef will accommodate special requests

Been eating here for a couple years. When they expanded they did it cheaply and left a lot to be desired. Most annoying is the noise level. Can't even hear the person next to you on a busy night. Took friends there for their first time and the service lacked on Saturday night. The food is always great. But we will pick something else on the weekend From now on. The do have the best margarita anywhere.
