This is a beautiful restaurant in a pleasant strip mall. The food is excellent as is the service. The Tuna Tataki is the best and freshest I've every eaten. The grouper in mango sauce was very good as well.

Had a good birthday celebration with our friends while we visited Tampico last week. The food was good, but really nothing to write home about. It was just above average. I've had better. But that said, the ambiance was great and the service was excellent.
I ordered fettuccine al pesto and the basil was a bit overwhelming. At one point i felt i was chewing basil straight from my grandma's garden. It would've been nice to appreciate the fresh pasta they're famous for. Pizzas were good though as was the steak my cousin ordered. Although it was extremely pricey for what it was.
Overall, it wasnt terrible but it wasn't as great as people make it out to be, I'd would visit again but probably would try something other than Pesto.

I have eaten here at least a dozen times in past 18 months. Ambiance and service is good. Food is good. Little pricey. Their "bread" is oven baked tortillas - slightly crispy but chewy, very good with oil and parmesan. Appetizers carprese salad or portabello mushroom w/cheese and marinara sauce good (caprese used to be much better, but they went cheaper on it a few months ago; old caprese was more generous with pesto). Pizzas are good. Several house dishes served. Can order tuna or steak from alternate menu. For dessert, tiramisu is the bomb!!

Had a good business dinner. Attentive service and good wine list. The tuna dishes are quite good. Good variety of table set ups including
tables for large groups. Definitely one of best restaurants in Tampico.
