Over the past few years we have tried a half dozen highly rated Italian restaurants and found all to be sorely lacking. Now comes Fornino. We have arrived! Wonderful food and staff. We will be back.

Chapalita is a fantasitic area for food and drink. We chose the restaurant from a Trip Advisor review and were not disappointed. It appeared to be the busiest restaurant in the area, so reservations might be necessary during peak times.

I refer to this restaurant as 'the best Italian in the world' (I have been in Italy…) Everything they serve is delicious, but their linguini vongole must be the ultimate dish we tried there. Just… wow… Prices are very reasonable considering the quality. Exellent waitors as well.

Some of the best I've had in Guadalajara. Good prices and options. Waitstaff speaks good English. Pizza by slice but pasta is where it's at here.

Spent 3 days in Guadalajara and tried several of the top restaurants in the area and this one was by far my favorite. I got shrimp Skewers with a white sauce that was amazing. I would highly recommend when in Guadalajara.
