“Held hostage in Ajijic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

Arrived about 2:00PM. We both ordered the same thing, tempura fish with fries and a pacifico. We had been here once before with a group and it was very good then. Service was affable and very adequet. The fish was to die for, we had plenty, almost too much, but it was excellent. When I reached for my wallet I dicovered no wallet. It was home. I offered to leave my wife for security, but the owner allowed that was not necessary and he would trust me. Needless to say, I went straight home and returned to pay the man. Also, needless to say, we will return.

“Nice Italian Option in Ajijic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2012

Good food and nice daily special. Lovely outdoor terrace. A bit of a walk from downtown Ajijic but close to La Floresta. Nice option.

“Good Pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

This is a great tourist place to eat when you finally tire of Mexican fare. They served a basket of fresh bread hot from the oven for starters. It was great. We ordered a pizza, shared and still brought home half of it. Service was good and there's outdoor seating.

“Very good Italian food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2011

Nice, very nice. Try the vegetarian lasagna, or the crepes. Dinner for two, with a glass of wine for each, for less than $20 USD.
