I came here after a concert at the Auditorio Nacional. This place is so close that you can walk from the auditorium for 4 minutes. The options range from salads, pizzas, pastas and risotto. I tried the Spaghetti with chicken and basil and the portions were the right side for dinner. The cheese flan was not spectacular but the tiramisu... More

Italian cuisine is always very popular in most countries in the western hemisphere so amazingly finding a good one is difficult since most are to commercial. In Polanco you can find MAGNIFICENT Italian restaurants (il Becco) or very bad ones (50 friends). This one is very honest and it delivers good quality food for the price. I enjoyed a pasta... More

Location and terrace is nice but food was disappointing. Service was ok. For the money there are many better places around. Would not return.

The atmosphere is pleasing from the moment you walk in with the exposed brick wall, tasteful deco, crisp white table linens, and view into the kitchen. I didn't like that the linens were arranged differently on separate tables but no one else would likely notice or care. The service was excellent. Granted, it was not busy yet when we arrived...

Across from El Bajio Restaurant in Polanco, a truly cute and quiet Italian Restaurant. The food was awesome, Minestrone soup was superb and the pizza really good, the dough was truly tasty. Service was awesome and the bill really ok after you survive the shock the bill arrives with the $ and a huge number but remember is Mexican Pesos... More

I went there with family. Thankfully even though I am on a very restricted medical diet and they don't have any vegan dishes on the menu, the chef was amazing and made me a delicious vegan mushroom "risotto". Amazing service!

Delicious authentic Italian food in the heart of Mexico City. I'd recommend the Spaghetti alls Ruota.. it's their staple dish and it is amazing.Aall the pasta is made in house. As it should be! Excellent service, will definitively return!

Overall excellent experience!! Beautiful decor and lovely ambience. The well trained staff were friendly and knowledgable and made my family and I feel very welcomed. The homemade pasta carbonara was the best I ever had! Can't wait to come back and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area!
