The service was impeccable. Margaritas were the best. I had the ravioli. This dish was a really great choice. When we thought we couldn't eat anymore they came to our table with a computer presentation of their deserts. Great marketing strategy. I would definitely return to this establishment.

Beers were reasonable at $4-5. They did have a steak on the menu for $25, which is probably the best value. We were with a large... More

This place is awesome! The owner is Mexican and worked many years in an Italin restaurant for many years prior to opening his own Mexican restaurant. The food is very authentic in both fares. The restaurant is very nice, they also have a bar and outdoor seating. My favorite is a mixed seafood dish in a broth. Nice wine list... More

The restaurant did a great job at taking care of our group. Everyone enjoyed the food. We will definitely be back. This was my third visit and can't wait for the fourth. I will come back just 2 of us or will definitely bring back a group!

An odd concept- Italian and Mexican but it actually works! This was a great compromise for us...he likes Italian and I can never get enough Mexican! I had the cucumber cilantro cocktail per our lovely server Kathy's recommendation! The drink was absolutely divine and included very fresh cucumber and lovely cilantro leaves. The complimentary chips and salsas were outstanding too.... More
