Fine meal...interesting story... ....while walking down hill saw a professional looking woman..seemed like a chef...caught up with her and asked for ”bueno comer....". I was speaking with the chef of la capellina. Followed her to restaurant, asked her to order dinners of her choice..fabulous...great fun...and I came all the way from Washington, DC

Not a great margarita. Fairy tasteless, only one thick raw slice of tomato on each pizza slice. No fresh basil - only dried herb mix. Base was dry and flaky as if it had been defrosted. Tasted more like a home-cooked cheese and tomato grilled sandwich. $159 for the pizza, large enough to be shared if you're only moderately hungry.

We ordered enchiladas mineras, a beef dish and a cheese pizza. The pizza crust is extremely thin--like a cracker. None of our meals were outstanding. We all agreed that the food was about 7/10. Service was pleasant, as are the surroundings.Total bill was $480 plus tip. (We did not order any drinks.)

My favorite restaurant in Guanajuato. Food, wine, service, location... everything is great. They have an exclusive and excellent Casa Madero wine in barrel.

We went after a tour of the city. The food was very good. Red sauce was very good as I like red sauce and it it's not good it is not worth eating the pasta. Wine was good and reasonably priced. I wish I had time to go back again.

We knew about the service from the reviews, but insisted to take the family there, cause reviews on the pizzas were real good. We said, OK let see.....Just like the reviews, EXCELLENT PIZZAS, but AWFUL service, The two waitresses that took care of us and 3 tables around us, need to do some other kind of work, like stay home,...

I recommend the vegetable appetizer. This is a great restaurant has live music. It's one of the few places I trust in Mexico not to cause me to get sick. It's on the pricer side but worth it. Pictured is that one and also the enchiladas.

This is a lovely restaurant near to the Teatro Juarez, but the food is average at best. I had a salmon dish that was bland and tasted less than fresh, and another time some enchiladas mineras that were also bland. There are so many other options instead of this restaurant.
