One of my FAVORITE restaurants in Veracruz (Boco de rio). Never had a meal I didn't enjoy completely! The restaurant is very classy in appearance, food prepared to perfection, served well, and very reasonably priced.

the fantastic service starts already in front of the Veneziano, with the very attentive valet service. the great atmosphere inside starts with the red-white tablecloths, the excellent service and - of course - with the visit of the vine-cellar. these vines, the tasty italian food, combined with nice live-music makes our evenings always special. thanks, we soon will be back.

Went with business associates food was surprisingly good considering! Was traveling with vegetarians who were all able to find a dish they loved. Only negative was service was somewhat slow. Great wine selection as well.

Bread is freshly baked, pasta is hand made, and the house wines were well above average for Mexico. It's reasonably priced but be careful when you order off the English menu as the prices are not current. If they had not shown us one price and charged another, they'd get 5 stars. It wasn't intentional, the waiter let us know... More

The food is OK but nothing to write home about. The service is mediocre and takes a long time. They could be more courteous. My wife returned the wine and they refused to let her try anther one!!! Where on earth this happens. Sorry no longer recommended.

I went there since it was rated relatively high in Trip Advisor. However, the restaurant was not persuading at all. Food and service were poor. I also had cold since on a cold day, they were not able to take out air condition. First of all, the service was not coordinated. The dishes did not come at the same time.... More

A good restaurant, excellent desserts, good bread, the waiter really tried to please. The food was good, there were three of us, two were very sattisfied, Kobe steak and fish dish, the third had a vegetarian pizza that really leaves a lot to be desired for the overall quality of the place, canned mushrooms come on! Although I was tempted... More

The pizza and salads are fresh and tasty! The waiters are fully aware of their menu and give good suggestions for appetizers and wine. While you wait for the main course ask for some hot bread!
