So, I had to come to MEXICO to have some of the best Italian food I have even eaten?

Now this place does not look like much from the outside, but it is what is inside that counts. We started with a couple of glasses of red wine and a bruschetta appetizer. We were told by friends to ask for it on pizza dough, but I am a hard-headed traditionalist, so we got it like it comes. OH MY GOD! Large chunks of bread piled high with goodies. We stuffed ourselves on that before our food came. One order is enough for like six people. I have never seen anything even remotely resembling this in the US.

We followed up with a three combination pasta and lasagna dish, again, way too much food, so we decided to share and take our pizza to go. The food was so good, but we were already stuffed on bruschetta. We got the rest packaged to go.

And the price? So cheap, we felt guilty. Left a huge tip. I mean, REALLY cheap.

Where is this place?
Wondering if we can get there by bus? What town? Also, strangely, there is a great French bistro in Ajijic. Hard to believe it is in Mexico. I went there with my dance class ladies for croissants and quiche. Super wine list, for the evening.

We can try it together before you guys leave if you want. It is almost right beside our house here in Tlachichilco. If you see the big red and white tower, you went too far. Yes, the bus goes right by it. If you tell the driver you want to go to the Foccacia, I am sure he will stop right in front. Come hungry!
