“Not so good as some say . . . .”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

Recommended by friends in Guadalajara as the best place for pizza. This is probably close to fact. We thoroughly enjoyed a shared pizza. The starters sounded like Italian dishes, but were unrecognizable as such. I have had a Caprese salad many, many times, including in Italy, this was a complicated and strange concoction with cherry tomatoes served on top of sliced tomato. Portions were large. We prefer quality over quantity when eating out. Prices fair, and as many of the reviews point out the restaurant is crowded and busy. Service not so good, not attentive, found we were frequently looking for a waiter to attend us. We like Italian food, this just wasn't up to par. I would highly recommend for pizza take out. Will give another chance, as it is an interesting venue. We noticed that on Saturday lunch many entering the place knew customers at other tables, many were local business people it appeared. Good indication. I guess any kitchen can have a bad day.

“Best pizza in town!”
Reviewed 27 September 2011

Authentic italian food with emphasis on pizza, which is one of the best I have eaten outside Italy! Prices are also very good! Fun, friendly atmosphere, good selection of wines.
If you love italian food, this is a place not to be missed!

“Best Italian in Guadalajara”
Reviewed 10 July 2010

By far the best pizzas you can find in Guadalajara. The place is relatively small and cozy and the service is quite good. The location is also very convenient; however, parking can be complicated.

“Nice pizza, but always too full”
Reviewed 23 July 2009

The problem with this restaurant is that it is too small and it is always too full. You have to wait outside to get a table and that is not too enjoyable. Other than that, the food is great!
