Third - and last - time I've been there. Only the salad was good. My gnocci with duck ragu was over salted and my wife's spaghetti with seafood was tasteless. So many far better Italian restaurants in the same neighborhood, this one's a writepff

The gnocchi I ordered was DELICIOUS. I would have given a 5 star review if that was the only thing ordered. However the rest of the meal was average. Certainly not bad, but nothing outstanding either. Good service and friendly staff. Families definitely welcome. Good spot for a casual meal.

We happened upon this restaurant by chance and we couldn't be more pleased. The service was attentive without being hovering. The appetizers we ordered-Christina The appetizers we ordered-a crostina and guacamole were excellent.
We had three different pastas and a salmon as entrées. All were very tasty and we will definitely be returning here.

Since we really enjoyed our last dining experience here, we made it a point to return to this cute place that is just a bit too FAR east. The M9 bus is the most convenient way to get here. The food was outstanding as expected. The coffee is exceptionally good. We also feel that the place is very clean. However, there were only 3 groups for dinner. If the cafe was more centrally located, it'd be full. We recommend this place highly.

The menu has great choices, they mix Italian and Mexican foods very creatively. The food was fresh and very well presented. The prices for drinks were very reasonable and good wine choices. I enjoyed the fish tacos and the pasta dishes. This is not like the old I coppi but a wonderful surprise new version.

The food was delicious. We both ordered the ribs which were served with mash potatoes. The meat just "melted off" the bone. The orange hibiscus sorbet was also great. Our waitress was kind and attentive. We recommend this place highly. It is worth the "trek" to the far-east village.

Firstly it was cinco de mayo, I thought the mexican side of the restaurant would come out, however no drink specials. There was one waitress working the whole restaurant and boy was she testy. Would not let me use my scoutmob coupon even though there were no specials. The food the was fair; my friend got a paninni and there was a whole cube of garlic and an inch and a half red hot pepper, her mouth was on fire! So I thought the safest bet was was the churro- worst choice ever!! They tasted like Chinese noodles, there was hardly any cinnamon sugar and the chocolate it was paired with was too strong and over powering with mexican flare. Overall an Epic Fail of a cinco de mayo dinner. I hope their Italian food is better.

Everyone in our party loved their meals, which were generally Italian-Mex fusion, leaning a bit more to the Italian side. The huitlacoche ravioli were original and delicious. Attentive service and a great vibe.

I have been here several times and the food and service are always excellent. The owner, Esteban, is warm and welcoming. Fresh food mixing the Italian and Mexican cultures (for example, rosemary steak tacos with arugula). On my most recent visit, I really enjoyed the passion fruit margarita, using fresh fruit puree.

I had an amazing jalepeño margarita, some delicious bistec tacos and some polenta with creme fresca. All was delicious and our waitress was super nice and accommodating. I would go again just to sit at the bar (which is dimly lit with tiles all over the place)

Its a nice restaurant for a small group. Its very intimate so the atmosphere is what won me over here. What did not win me over was the food. I had the lasagne and it basically burnt the top of my mouth and was overall subpar. Not sure if I would even remember to recommend but the atmosphere was nice for dinner.

I went to Matilda with a group of five and we really liked the unique menu and fun drinks. The waiter was attentive and open to being creative with us on drink choices. Music playing in the backdrop was retro Euro-80s which we enjoyed (a little Echo and the Bunnymen anyone?). Prices are reasonable. I will go again!

Thought this was a great combination of mexican and Italian. Service was really nice and very accommodating. My only critique was that I thought the food was going to be really spicy (for the items flagged with 3 faces) but didn't find it spicy at all. Think when go back will ask them to really kick it up a notch. Will return as thought atmosphere and food was great.

The food is great. They do a great job balancing Mexican and Italian flavors to create new and interesting dishes. The drinks were very good also and one of my friends copied down a drink recipe because he really wanted to be able to make the delicious drink again at home. The owners are very involved and very friendly. One of the owners was our waiter and the service was very good. The drinks are comparable to many other similar place, but the food prices are pretty low so it's definitely a good deal. I was here with a group of 7 people and they had no problems accommodating a somewhat large group. This was my third visit and I would definitely go back.

The food was okay. The service was a bit inconsistent. There were two large parties dinning while we were and it was unbelievably loud. This was exacerbated by the loud music. It was almost impossible to hear my dinning companions. Overall, probably wouldn't go back unless someone else selected it.
