On our day trip to Dolores Hidalgo from San Miguel de Allende, we stopped at DaMonica (based on TA reviews). Our plan for a quick lunch turned into a lovely afternoon with Monica, Igor and Nonna. The lasagna was excellent, as were all of our dishes including the pizza. We enjoyed capping our lunch off with shots of limoncello. Monica... More

Wow, what an unexpected treat. I had heard good things, but I was blown away. From the beginning - Grandma greeting us warmly in Italian - to the welcome from the rest of the staff to the seating and the service, to the food itself, all was exceptional. The wine list was solid and very fairly priced. The bread to... More

We were a hungry family of 12 people, visiting and sitting by Dolores Hidalgo plaza looking for a restaurant. Thanks to Tripadvisor I had seen the positive reviews of Da Monica. By 1:30 pm we were tired and ready to sit in any restaurant that offered food by the main plaza. However none of the restaurants in the plaza look... More

My friends and I just enjoyed an unexpectedly delicious Italian meal at Da Monica. This would be a standout restaurant even in San Miguel's bustling restaurant scene, but is located instead on a sleepy, nondescript street in Dolores Hidalgo. Homemade pastas, perfectly done seafood, fairly sophisticated decor, friendly staff and owners. Everything is housemade. The meal started with very good... More

Excellent food, wine and service. We dined upstairs by an open window with a wafting breeze. $80.00 for 4 people including two bottles of wine. Incredible!

Form the street it doesn't look like much, but on the strength of The TripAdvisor rating, we found a table upstairs. We started with a nice little Pinot Grigio from Italy. The bread, olive tepanade and red onion butter were fantastic and that was on the house, the Caprese was good, the Caesar was Better. All of our entrees from... More

DaMonica delighted us. We were visiting tile shops and enjoyed a leisurely comida as a break. Our waitress was warm and attentive, and the homemade focaccia came with three savory toppings: an olive purée, butter with carmelized onions and a salsa with capers. Next, we shared a Greek Salad (greens, olives, tomatoes, onions, cheese and mushrooms.) Our main courses were... More
