    Opt for the patio dining so romantic. Best of both worlds Mexican and Italian . Service was a bit slow but the food was good.

    With top-notch Mexican food and incredible homemade pasta in the same meal, this restaurant creates a memorable experience that you can't find anywhere else. [Eater 38 Member]

    Best Italian food in Detroit and one of the better Mexican menus too. Order off of both menus.

    Amazing Italian and Mexican food, and a fantastic (and huge!) back patio. A truly unique restaurant, and one of the very best in Detroit.

    Lemme tell you something. Best goat taco in town. Best peach sangria in town. Always order one of the specials. Sat next to Ryan Gosling... Oh.

    El Barzon is another hidden gem in #Detroit, like La Dolce Vita. Plus they serve Mexican AND Italian. I mean that's cool, right? Quality stuff and a sweet patio.

    Norberto Garita takes his food seriously: All his moles—sauces with dozens of spices and ingredients—are made from scratch. Read more

    Love the menu and the food here... That being said, the service is painfully slow, the parking is scary and the serve canned pops? Nothing says class like a nice Italian dish with a can of sprite.

    Menu is updated. Prices have increased and now the entrance is in the rear with a new garden patio. (Its a little loud back there, but it sure is pretty).

    Too expensive for what it offers. It's not even close to be authentic mexican food, the service is the slowest ever and the location is like being in a war zone. I wouldn't recommend this place.
