First time, December 2013, was excellent, so we decided to do it again, February 2016, on a subsequent trip to Milan. Waiters are phenomenal, food and presentation were stupendous, the ambiance and the crowd were great. Nothing but kudos!

A fair selection of hamburgers, different kinds of beef, french fries with just about every dish, onion rings.
They have numerous pasta dishes that can be super hot, hot or not hot at all.
Pasta is usually "al dente" (i.e. not glue).
Mexican dishes can be hot or bland, you can choose.

Albigondas, loads of different salads (their Ceasar is good).

Why just average? Because while the food is usually good they are so slow that often that meat dishes are cold to the point that I have had to send frozen steaks back to the kitchen.

The place is understaffed for a restaurant on 2 floors and some time it shows.
If you go for lunch try and be seated before 1 PM to avoid the throngs of people on their lunch break.

Get there after 1 PM and you'll regret it.

Why do I go there? Because there are not many acceptable places in the area around my office for lunch.

Be aware of a potentially annoying issue when you go and pay the bill.
Queues in Italy are not even close to what they are in other countries.
You may think you are second in line but the person in front of you may actually be "holding" a place for 5 or 10 others and all his/her "friends" will want to pass you by.

I do get into arguments about queue jumping at times but I am not sure it is worth it as there seems to be little point in arguing.

Patrons like that think they are always right. Of course in any other country such behavior would not be tolerated.

The staff is pleasant and helpful but quite obviously overworked.
Their Happy Hour is also worth it.

You have been warned.
If you still want pay Mexicali a visit you may enjoy it.

Good setting, nice people and waiters, overall a very nice "ambiance". Food is nice and easy as all mexican cuisine and it is definitely fine tuned to the italian taste so don't expect a lot of spice!
