Fodor's Review

The Petterino family has run this two-story restaurant since 1966. The locale—right on Reforma but away from the main flow of traffic—is totally cosmopolitan. The vibe is rustic northern Italian trattoria. Seating is cramped, but that just makes the place feel especially intimate. All pastas are made on the premises; the Bolognese sauce is a favorite. Raw artichoke salad, eggplant Parmesan, and filete al burro nero (steak in black butter) are all tasty dishes.

Very good Restaurant & great Value

Although you might not see it from the out side view, it is actually a very nice restaurant with a great atmosphere and fantastic dishes and what to say about value, you could not buy better any where for the prices in this nice piece off Italia
