Went there for Filet mignon because of recommendations from others. We each had one. Mine was excellent! Other one tasted like it came off a gut shot deer.

This restaurant is off the main road, but still easy to get to. Located on a corner a block from the main road. Their menu is only available in Spanish and most of their staff doesn't speak English, but it was not bad (only made us realize how much we need to learn Spanish!) The food was just average here....

Regulars visiting Zipolité know that nothing is a sure thing there. The restaurant fonctionned through some hard personnel problems (* it's a small place and family is important) which probably is the cause of some people posting disappointing reviews for last winter. But through it all, the owner did her best to serve with quality what there was. The menu... More

The restaurant has shifted venues and is now located right next door to its previous location, having taken over the old Babel/Siamo Fritti/Buonveno space. The restaurant is now much larger but the quality of food and service are just as good as ever. Delicious homemade pastas which can be napped with their distinctive Pacha Mama sauce (see my previous review... More

Good-food is excellent. Went twice and both times our meals were delicious. Service is pretty good, attentive staff and the setting is nice. Good, clean bathroom. Bad-our 2nd visit, the female owner mistook a pizza meant for a customer. She and another staff member touched slices as if to start to eat it and when the husband/chef pointed this out... More

Everyone raved about the pizza here, so we went to try this amazing pizza.. I was a little disappointed to be honest. I would say I know my pizzas, I have tried many all over the world, including all over Italy. I had the basil pesto pizza, my partner had the pepperoni, mom had the all dressed (meat). None stood...

We went with friends who hadn't been, we had been before on previous trips. Most of us got pizzas of which they have a long list. They are crispy, thin crust pizzas with nice fresh toppings, perhaps a little too much salt in some of the ingredients but quite delish. One of our friends got a rare filet mignon which... More
