Had a beautiful Petit Syrah Wine which complimented our pasta choices perfectly. We brought home a pizza and it was simply delicious, even cold! Went both times for a late lunch and had... More

I went with my family to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday there. The place is very good decorated and has a nice ambience. The food was good and tasty but I don't give it the five points because of two things: the waiter took a lot of time in taking our order and although the wine menu is wide the prices... More

Excellent food and wine. Service was slow and somewhat inattentive, my only reason for not giving it five stars. Maybe just the night we were there. We were going to go again, but closed several days for Xmas.

Holy crap this place is amazing. I had a tuna carpaccio dish that in itself was incredible but the bread they brought with it made it only more so (make sure to ask for the dipping bread if ordering this dish). For my main course I had penne arrabiata which was perfectly al dente and beautifully sauced. Incredibly friendly staff... More

We eat there most weeks and were there yesterday. Their food is excellent and ambiance is comfortable. Lots of business lunches, but I'm comfortable in jeans. For a very interest twist on an Italian drink in Mexico, they make and bottle a limoncello made with tequila. To me, it´s better than the traditional limoncello which I am fond of.

My husband is getting excellent treatment at Hospital Angeles del Carmen. Although I sleep in the room, it's good to get out for dinner. There are many good restaurants within walking distance and El Italiano is the best. Casual Italian atmosphere with white tablecloths and waiters in black and white. The waiter brought a perfect vodka martini and made me,... More
