Found while walking Calle Adelita. Hostess was gracious and inviting. Food served with beautiful presentation. Salads are large and could be a meal in themselves. I had mahi mahi with a Mandarin ginger sauce, a delight to the palate. One of the owners described upcoming changes as the restaurant is renovated. I look forward to a visit next year to... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant early this trip and returned so many times we joked that it's the restaurant we've eaten most often at in our whole lives. My understanding is that they are under new ownership and the naming of the restaurant is now "La Kalle". We ate breakfast here four times! I ordered chilaquilas with salsa verde and... More

We were looking for dinner on a Sunday night and found this gem! The most impressive part was the food, we had the prawns and the mahi mahi that were grilled and presented wonderfully. The margaritas were fresh squeezed, the wine list was better than most, the lattes (cappuccinos) were very good and the service was attentive, friendly, passionate and... More

We went to Ita the most during our 1wk trip. Seating outside or inside. The owners, Victoria & her husband (the chef) are lovely people. Good coffee, good food. Love the melted cheese dip & guacamole, & they had wine which was nice. I liked the location, even though it's where few cars drive up & down, it's good people... More

We stopped by here for breakfast and had some amazing scrambled egg enchiladas with a bean sauce. Very good food, perfect portion, reasonably priced. Would definitely go again.

From the outside, this restaurant appears to be quite small but it is just the opposite. We had shrimp and steak tacos. There were four tacos to a plate instead of the usual three. The margaritas were tasty. We will be back.

We walked down the street and decided to have dinner here. I had lobster - husband had tuna. Both meals had tasty vegetables and mashed potatoes. The service was excellent. Great atmosphere, very friendly workers. One of our best meals.

When my husband and I ate dinner here, we were told it had been open for only 2 weeks. The new owner was very attentive and knowledgeable about cuisine and wines. I had grilled lobster tail. My husband had Mahi Mahi (perfectly cooked). Both dishes were very tasty. The desserts (home made) were outstanding--Passion Fruit creme brulee and chocolate sorbet... More
