La Trattoria della Casa Nuova Restaurant Review

: In Mexico City, Italian restaurants tend to turn out soggy pasta, undercooked pizza and insipid versions of traditional dishes. Therefore, the opening a few years ago of this unpretentious trattoria, with authentic food, was a welcome relief. To get to the restaurant, you pass through their store, where they sell imported cheeses, cold cuts and homemade breads, and go up a flight of stairs. It is pleasant and light-filled during the day, romantically discreet at night, with professional and friendly service at any hour. While the menu is not cutting edge, you can expect notable versions of time-honored Italian favorites: an antipasto with roasted vegetables, olives, cheeses and cold cuts, served with bread baked on the premises; asparagus in pesto sauce; spaghetti carbonara; or a juicy Florentine steak. There is a pleasant, if not particularly extensive, list of mostly Italian wines, many available by the glass, and a full bar.
