After reading all the excellent reviews of the restaurant we wanted to try it. Our journey to get there did not start well. We took a taxi from central Merida with a driver who spoke no English. I gave him the address as shown on Trip Advisor. He then proceeded to take us to a totally wrong place. The address... More

There are quite a few Italian restaurants in Merida. It seems to be the most popular cuisine except for Mexican. This is a small restaurant with outside seating. The owners are wonderful. The owner chef is Italian. The food is really good. It is very Italian and authentic. Every dish my wife, friends and I have tried is excellent. The... More

A bit far from the center, but sure worth the drive. We ate there lunch and it was refreshing to eat a good italian food in mexico.

This restaurant may be small in size, but not in flavor. The owner is an Italian guy who personally supervises the processes, the cooking, the serving. The variety could improve, but maybe because of the size, it is a small variety in the menu. Anyway, whatever I tried, is delicious. A true Italian flavor. I highly recommend it. You might... More

Recommended by a local after I visited a different Italian restaurant which I liked very much.........THIS is the place to get great Italian food. Simple setting, casual but charming feel, a real Italian chef, so glad we found it. We will be back our next time in Merida!

This small and cozy Italian restaurant is run by an Italian and serves authentic Italian cuisine. If you want to get away from the touristic area and eat where the locals eat, this is the place. The chef puts quality over quantity and the attention of the staff is impeccable. The vegetarian lasagna was excellent. But save some room for... More

This little place serves up some of the best pasta dishes you are going to find in Merida. We were shown this place by our local friends who dine here often. Our families sat and enjoyed the nicest couple you would like to meet. Wine was great and well priced. The smoked salmon salad is sublime. Carbonaro that makes you... More
