This is a 100% Mexican restaurant in Rome. Definitely the best choice is one wants to eat Mexican food. Everything was nice: the decoration, the service, the people attending the restaurant (all Mexican), the value for price... I would recommend it without hesitating. Let me...More

We went to have dinner and the experience was very good. The staff was friendly and helpful. This is a clean, spacious place with nice food. They offer suitable sized meal portions; not too big, not too small.

This provided a nice break from Italian food during our 12 day trip. The staff was very friendly. They do require a reservation due to the restaurant being small. The food was pretty good. The fajitas were delicious and so were the enchiladas!!

Super cute decor and the hardest working waitress I can remember seeing! We have been looking for Mexican for days and were pleasantly surprised by La Cucaracha. The menu was both in Italian and English and the service was super quick.
