Restaurant details
Neighbourhood: Condesa
Reviewed 7 July 2009

Decor: Quite nice
Food: Tasty and innovative (we only tried the pizza)
Waiting time: Problematic
No waiters (to save money)

We went there on Saturday afternoon, there was only one other couple there and the owner explained that he would normally have three other staff in the kitchen but that day there was nobody but him, so the food would take longer to prepare than normal. "Ok", we said, thinking "how long can it take to prepare an Italian-style pizza, especially if the place is empty?" The answer: one hour for two pizzas.
These pizzas are very creative with unusual ingredients, but it was over an hour before we finally got ours and then it was lukewarm. The owner had been carefully arranging lettuce leaves on the pizza and when he brought it to the table insisted on explaining to us why it was supposed to resemble its title (name of a painting). The pizza must have been out of the oven 10 minutes before we got to eat it.
Personally, I prefer my pizzas to arrive at my table piping hot and without explanations.
The desserts were probably good too, but we weren't prepared to wait for them.
