Traditional dishes from the Mexican tradition, good quality-price trade-off. Plenty of people in every occasion

We visited this restaurant on our last night in Turin.The atmosphere was buzzing and the decor was good. My food was really good but very large portions but my husbands meal was disappointing but it might be because we have never been to a Mexican restaurant before and we were ordering in Italian which is not our first language! Service... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant for dinner. We were really disappointed. This is not a mexican restaurant...they serve mainly food bar...kind of texmex...we ordered the "mixta parilla" and the sausages were still pink inside! The food in general is low quality. The staff only made the difference.

The place in via Vittoria is really nice: the quesadillas and chicken fajitas were fresh and tasty. Staff was friendly and place was really clean. Can't really explain why such few customers... Will go back.

Coming from Houston Texas I often get nostalgic and crave a delicious plate of fajitas or just a plain cheese quesadilla. While this place is as close as you can get to Tex-Mex in Turin it ain't quite IT. The tortillas and nachos aren't fresh (actually I found my chips quite stale this time around). I decided to order the... More

I have been going to this place for years, and despite having tried the other tex-mex in the city, always come back here. I wanted to see the new location and was really impressed. It's much nicer, the seating is more comfortable and the rooms are more open and spacious. The food is still just as good, and the service... More

If you're looking for authentic Mexican food, this is not really the place for you. The "sour cream" was actually cream cheese. The "Mexican rice" was not it at all. Not recommending this place.

We went there 3 weeks ago, Saturday. We have been one of the first guests, so we have been expecting nice service. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. We took mix fajitas, for 2 people. The portion was generous, but tasteless. Worse, the food arrived cold! The taste was missing, spices but the most eating cold food. The waiter was really unwelcoming -... More

I really love mexican food, so I choose this restaurant with the suggestions of my friends. However I could not find the real mexican taste, I am looking for. Burritto that I had was heaten in a oven/microwave. It was not fresh enough. I can suggest Margarita, it was nice.
