The staff is really friendly, the location is amazing and if you are lucky to get a table with a view, grab it. its really quaint. the food is really good and reflects real seasoning and style. prices can be more competitive but the real estate is very nice so it kinds of compensates.

Loved the garlic pasta. Went twice for it. Great locations. Balcony seats perfect for couples. Good view of the place. Especially night time. Food served is little less than the expected amount (to fill the tummy).

Made reservation for large group of 10. Apparently felt that this was a TOP restaurant but was disappointed by the small portions I received. Prior to receiving my food they served some bread with butter and some other italian bread. When spreading the butter on my bread I quickly found out that the butter was bad and was obvious it...

This was a great place to sit and relax with a glass of wine overlooking the plaza and then enjoy a very good meal. Pasta was done to perfection. Alfredo sauce not to thick and very tasty. My husband had a fish that melted in his mouth. If you have room - enjoy lovely fresh strawberries and cream for dessert!... More

I was very pleased with my meal here. We had a chicken in a red sauce. It was tender and good. The salad with sliced pear, pecans, strawberries, and poppy seeds was wonderful. Salad was completely safe to eat-we never ran into a problem eating the greens in restaurants. Wines by the glass and a table outside overlooking the plaza... More

We enjoyed dinner here recently and wanted to sing its praises. When you first enter the restaurant, it can be a little imposing, with lots of tables in close proximity and the noise. But then the service starts and all of that is forgotten. The waitstaff and manager are all very friendly and frequently stop by to see how you... More

This is a fun and informally elegant place on the square Jardin de la Union. On the second floor there are several table facing the square which are highly desirable. The food is mostly Italian and of good quality and preparation. The pasta with seafood was excellent and the meat OK. The service was very efficient and the beverage offering... More

Great restaurant, centrally located, nice views. The food was excellent as well, nice portions, well prepared, Italian with a Mexican touch. Wife had a nice salmon with poblano pieces on it and she really enjoyed it. I had an excellent Osso Buco di Vitello, again very savory. Good service too.
