Who knew? This little gem is tucked away in an area I would not normally go.... but what a great experience. Gritty area - making a comeback - we hope, like the rest of Detroit. The place was packed. Good that our friends made reservations. The waitress was Kathy! Excellent! Very knowledgeable - and an interesting menu - both Mexican... More

This place is awesome! The owner is Mexican and worked many years in an Italin restaurant for many years prior to opening his own Mexican restaurant. The food is very authentic in both fares. The restaurant is very nice, they also have a bar and outdoor seating. My favorite is a mixed seafood dish in a broth. Nice wine list... More

The restaurant did a great job at taking care of our group. Everyone enjoyed the food. We will definitely be back. This was my third visit and can't wait for the fourth. I will come back just 2 of us or will definitely bring back a group!

An odd concept- Italian and Mexican but it actually works! This was a great compromise for us...he likes Italian and I can never get enough Mexican! I had the cucumber cilantro cocktail per our lovely server Kathy's recommendation! The drink was absolutely divine and included very fresh cucumber and lovely cilantro leaves. The complimentary chips and salsas were outstanding too.... More

I was pleasantly surprised that we were seated for our 7 pm reservation precisely at 7!! Wow!! We started with a caprese salad and poblanos rellenos. The caprese salad was made with salad tomatoes rather than Campari tomatoes but it was still tasty! The poblano pepper was decent not terrific! We found the drinks to be over priced but our... More

Our waitress, Kathy, made a birthday celebration even more special with her attentiveness to every detail including bringing the tequila bottles to our table to show us what had been poured (we were experimenting!). Everyone enjoyed their meals (meat to seafood were ordered) and they even brought a special birthday dessert surprise for my dad. It was a wonderful night.... More

It's a delicious treat worth the trip and off the beaten path. The dishes can be a bit exotic to good old family favorites. I've been twice so far with a social group and plan to take a friend who is a foodie, when she visits next.

This place has a great menu...Italian and Mexican. I had a Mexican dish and my daughter had a pasta dish...both were excellent. Good wine selection as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely be back soon!
