Great pizzas, great pastas... minestrone soup is amazing and I do love their salad bar. They even brought over some toys for the kids to play with (not so good for little ones but 4yrs+). Service can be a little slow but overall, a great place to have a casual lunch or dinner. Wood burning oven, which makes for great... More

I must first admit that the preparation of the food and ingredients were top notch (albeit expensive) and that the service was acceptable to good ... at the Condesa location. However what put me off was that you have to pay a 155 peso uncorking fee for a wine purchased in their restaurant because they "purchase all their wines from... More

Definetly not the best italian restaurant in town, and the service is slow. We started with an artichoke antipasto with goat cheese, good flavor, but it was very greasy (yuck!). The entrees were good, I think the best one was the salmon (special of the day). The tiramisu, in my opinion was too sweet, but the rest of my party... More

Never got to eat here (Condesa restaurant). Many places closed on New Year's in Mexico City so made a reservation for Giacovanni on Sonora in Condesa. Fifty minutes before the time scheduled, an email popped up telling me that the restaurant had cancelled my reservation. What's that about?

Over a period of 5 years, we've tried many pizza restaurants throughout town, and if you like well-done, thin crust pizza baked in wood-burning ovens, there is no better than this place. Even when it comes delivery, it's excellent. The toppings are always fresh and they never pour anything on too thick. You can taste every ingredient you request. We've... More

This is an excellent place to eat Italian food at a reasonable price and quantity. I've been coming here for a couple of years, every time I'm in Mexico and I would highlight its simple but good menu and wine list which is complete and normal but as I said before at a reasonable price. highly recommended the "CALAMARI FRITTI",...
