Wonderful tacos, an enthusiastic crowd eagerly awaiting (and returning for!) an authentic taste of Mexico in Rome! Loved it, highly recommend!!! Only a couple small tables, many opted for walk up service, but we snagged a seat and enjoyed a cold corona while enjoying the heavenly food!

I live in California, have visited Mexico, and visit Rome often.I have had many opportunities for good Mexican food, but I have rarely (if ever) had Mexican food so fresh, delicious and authentic! Everything hand-made, home-made and fresh-made by Victor! Especially the fresh-made corn tortillas (I defy anyone to find better ones) and the guacamole! We also had wonderful fish tacos and some of the best salsa(s) ever! Plus Victor (the chef) is super-sweet and kind. Be patient if he is working alone: cooking, serving the food, and writing out your check ... A one-man operation. Off the charts - Above and beyond!

Finally an authentic Mexican restaurant in Rome. It's a tiny place that offers a variety of tacos (shrimp chicken barbacoa fish etc) on handmade 100% corn tortillas, homemade salsas and quacamoli, and more. The homemade quac is amazing, made on the spot, can't beat it for 6 euro. I also tried the barbacoa and shrimp tacos and they were excellent. Will be back often.

The tacos are unique, fresh and cheap. Victor, the man who runs the shop was a scientist in Mexico before deciding to try something new in his life, and boy I am glad he did! The tacos are rich with flavor and such a nice break from Italian food. He has incredible grilled shrimp and chicken with green sauce tacos, particularly exceptional.

This is a small, true bit of Mexico right in the centre of Rome. Delicious tacos, very nice owner who makes everything fresh, it's open until late and it's the perfect place to have a tasty, quick and fulfilling meal! Working nearby, I go there quite often and never leave disappointed :)
