La Lanterna (Italian)
Paseo de la Reforma 458, at Toledo, Col. Juárez, Mexico City
Lunch and dinner only
Owned and run by an Italian family since half a century ago, this is the place to get the best Italian dishes at a humble price. The pasta and pizza varieties are always the specialty at any Italian restaurant, but also try the steak in black butter (filete al burro nero) and roasted rabbit in wine sauce (conejo en Salmi). Seating is limited and a bit cramped, but arrive early and you will have an unforgettable Italian dining experience.
