It seems crazy to go to Rome and eat Mexican food but this place is great! The margaritas are very good and the food is carefully prepared and authentic. I will be thinking about the verde sauce for some time!

The one and only Mexican restaurant in Rome. The owners, the team, the menu and the drinks, make you feel to be in Mexico. Enjoy!

Rich local dishes, spicy specialties and a wide assortment of beers and cocktails. The room is cozy and the strictly Mexican furnishings create a warm atmosphere with Latin American music. A real explosion of cheerfulness. The family atmosphere makes the tasting of culinary specialties more enjoyable. The restaurant is open only in the evenings, every day, even after the theater. The reservation is necessary.
