We ate here on our last night in GTO, and it was a very pleasant ending to our trip. We tried 2 starters, Tomato soup and a salad, and one pasta plate, and the Medallions of Beef, all were excellent quality. Total price for 2 with tip was about $48.00US. On the 2nd floor, try to sit on a balcony... More

La Trattoria is on the second floor of building directly facing Teatro Juarez and Jardin de la Union. If you can get a balcony seat outdoors, that alone is worth a visit. However, the night three friends got together on the balcony was more than just a view. I'm not a big meat eater, but once in a while when... More

Always try to hit this place for dinner the moment I finish my workday whenever I'm in Silao. We drive or take an uber to Guanajuato and eat here. This time, I ordered the Rib-eye, which was excellent. The other two in my party had the "divina comedia", which is steak with shrimp, and the grilled salmon, both seemed very... More

We had a really good dinner on a balcony with a great view of the plaza and a nearby church. My pesto pasta dinner was really tasty, as was my wife's bolognesa pasta. Our wine was good and not too expensive. The bread and bread sticks, with cheese spread, were fine as well. Our waiter was attentive and spoke both... More

My husband and I chose this place mostly for the view from the balcony, but also because of a craving for Italian food. We were not disappointed in either respect. We ordered a bottle of Italian wine and shared the spinach salad with prosciutto. My husband ordered the vegetarian lasagna and I had the bass with shrimp and capers. All... More
