I often read reviews by disgruntled delivery customers. Been there, suffered that. But I just ordered a pizza 25 minutes ago. The woman who answered the phone, whose English was about as good as my Spanish (intermediate), said it would be here in 30-45 minutes....More

If you go to this restaurant be sure to sit upstairs - very cosy and romantic. The downstairs area is blah. This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in San Miguel.

Went here for lunch, as a family of five. The small pizzas were good,but the large pizza base was too thick and the pasta was overcooked. All forgiveable, but the service was not overly friendly, so I won't be going back.

1st Italian Restaurant in San Miguel de Allende. We have been serving locals and tourists from around the globe for almost 30 years. Many people love our thin crust pizzas with homemade tomato sauce and the combination of ingredients of each clients choice. Everyday we prepare hand made pasta: fettucine, spaghetti, raviolis and lasagna as well. Please come by and experience our very cozy and unique historic architecture, in a place that feels as if you were in a grotto anywhere in Italy!
