The sign on the door said closed for vacation, but it looked like it was closed forever because of construction inside. The worker guys upstairs said they were closed, and gone. FYI. Of course, it's June, and many places are closed for summer, so maybe they will be open again. They are hard to find. Way to the left of... More

Franco was our server and he was outstanding! Pizza was delicious as was the chocolate cake dessert. It's a little hard to find but it's right behind the OXXO.

Last year I rated this restaurant 5 stars for their wood fired pizza. We could hardly wait to return this year. But.....very disappointed. The pizza is not nearly as good. Apparently they have lost their cook and staff and it shows! Just average pizza now with tons of cheese and not much flavor....to bad!

We found the restaurant (in the back corner of a shopping plaza with an OXXO on the street) and really enjoyed the wood-fired pizza. Ordered a second pizza to have for breakfast!

We had about 15 out of town guest and were wondering what to have catered. Our good friend suggested La Esquina. We were blown away with the quality of the the gourmet dishes presented to our guests. Salmon in a blackened sauce, ahi, carpaccio etc even the salad was a hit. Everything was beyond expected. Glad to find this gourmet... More

Charming, sophisticated, rustic atmosphere with gorgeous food. Only thing to dislike is how location is tucked back from the street in the corner of a small mall. You almost have to know it is there first. I've been back three times and always experienced the same quality.

We were hoping for good pizza and service, after a few disappointments elsewhere in town. What we experienced was fresh, delicious food and a cozy, romantic setting. Try the sangria! They chopped the fruit fresh in front of us, and it was refreshing and crisp on a hot evening. I had the gazpacho, and it was perfectly prepared-- not too... More

We had been told about this great restaurant by friends and even though it took a while to find it in in the Las Palmas Plaza a few blocks east of the Pemex gasoline station it was WELL worth the effort. The meals we enjoyed were truly amazing. They were so carefully prepared and there was a genuine effort to... More
