Needed a change from local culinary food. Decided on DonDe and we were delighted in the food. the pasta was cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious. we also had a fish dish which was also done nicely. Quality over all is good. The only thing we were disappointed in was the wine. we ordered a spanish white as we were very bored with the sauvignon blanc (every restaurant was serving this wine...boring). they had to go and buy it next door and then it was served to us "warm" as it was cold when they purchased it. Bummer! A tip for management --- always keep an extra bottle in the fridge.

If you are looking for something else than mexican food, this is a pleasant solution. The pasta is fine and our five different courses were OK, though not overwhelming.

We went for the lasagna. Must say that it was tasty but I was disappointed in the portion. Definitely a one person plate so no sharing this one. I did see a spaghetti plate that was quite large. Don't go thinking that your getting the typical "Mexican" size plate.

The service was ok, not great. We had a little bit of a communication problem with the waitress. The spinach ravioli was very good. The seafood pasta was just average. It seemed a little dry and I don't think the seafood was fresh.

Who would have thought that you can get a great Italian meal in a small Mexican Village. Our first nigh there I had the gnocchi and my girlfriend had lasagna. The gnocchi were huge but very tender with a very flavorful Bolognese. I’m always cautious about ordering lasagna as it sometimes can have the size of a wedding cake and the density of clay. However, this serving was no more than 2 inches thick and very light. The combinations of meat, sauce and cheeses was perfect and very complimentary. All of the pastas are made on the premises and you can really taste the difference. Service is very good but if yiu sit on the second floor it may be a little slow but well worth the wait
