Excellent food, wine and service. We dined upstairs by an open window with a wafting breeze. $80.00 for 4 people including two bottles of wine. Incredible!

The bread, olive tepanade and red onion butter were fantastic and that was on the house, the Caprese was good, the Caesar was Better. All of our entrees from... More

Our waitress was warm and attentive, and the homemade focaccia came with three savory toppings: an olive purée, butter with carmelized onions and a salsa with capers. Next, we shared a Greek Salad (greens, olives, tomatoes, onions, cheese and mushrooms.) Our main courses were... More

DaMonica was recommnended to us by a serious foodie so we had to try it. It was everything he said it was. Authentically Italian....we were warmly greeted in Italian by the chef and owner. The wine list was impressive as well as the menu. Ensalada de Pulpo was a special that day which may be the best thing on the... More

An Italian restaurant in Dolores Hidalgo, Mexico? We decided to have a change of pace lunch during our time in Mexico and enjoyed a delicious lunch at DaMonica. This is a two level restaurant and we decided to eat on the second level. The restaurant's owner warmly greeted us and her daughter, the restaurant's namesake, DaMonica, introduced herself and also... More

This restaurant is the perfect reason to go to Dolores, and if you happen to be in San Miguel de Allende, it is worthwhile to travel the 30 + Miles there. Excellent food, great service and nice experience in general. We live 40 Miles from the city and at least once a month we go there for lunch or dinner.... More
