Went there for Filet mignon because of recommendations from others. We each had one. Mine was excellent! Other one tasted like it came off a gut shot deer.

Pomodoro sauce was fabulous. Very nice patio, great staff. Had dinner here 3 times during our 2 week stay.

This restaurant is off the main road, but still easy to get to. Located on a corner a block from the main road. Their menu is only available in Spanish and most of their staff doesn't speak English, but it was not bad (only made us realize how much we need to learn Spanish!) The food was just average here. There are many Italian restaurants in this little town, so I would recommend several other restaurants over this one. My husband had a mixed meat plate (beef fillet, chorizo and ribs) and he reported it was not that great. He had beef fillet at two other restaurants and was pleasantly surprised at how good the met was in Mexico, unfortunately not here! I had gnocchi in tomato sauce which was very mediocre, bland sauce, decent gnocchi though.

Regulars visiting Zipolité know that nothing is a sure thing there. The restaurant fonctionned through some hard personnel problems (* it's a small place and family is important) which probably is the cause of some people posting disappointing reviews for last winter.
But through it all, the owner did her best to serve with quality what there was. The menu was sometimes more limited. My friend takes the gnocchi dish at every visit. Yes, it's smaller then the others, but all things considered, it probably has as many calories as the bigger spaghetti dishes! He never complained about the size of the portion.

This said, they had problems but it was still an excellent place to eat.
Their steak ( filet mignon) is one of the best in Zipolite

The restaurant has shifted venues and is now located right next door to its previous location, having taken over the old Babel/Siamo Fritti/Buonveno space. The restaurant is now much larger but the quality of food and service are just as good as ever. Delicious homemade pastas which can be napped with their distinctive Pacha Mama sauce (see my previous review about the gnocchi), wonderful grilled meats prepared by Paolo; the arrachera is tender enough to cut with a fork! Attentive and friendly service is offered by la bellisima Miki and Leo. Meal service usually finished with a complimentary ron de la casa, a shot of rum which is infused with vanilla or banana. Bravi, amici; li voglio bene!
