Menu at Primer Plato

On the menu here you can find raviolis, gnocchi, spaghetti and lasagna.  Prices are very reasonable and being hand made Italian food makes it really rather a good deal. Spaghettis are 60-80 pesos, raviolis are 80-100 pesos, lasagna 80-100 pesos gnocchi 80 pesos. They have desserts like tiramisu. Drinks are very reasonably priced also. Make sure you come early as some of the items will be sold out later in the day.

The food is  fresh made and we love the fact they roll out the semolina dough for the pasta, then cut it and right into the pot it goes, fresh for your dish. This is not a full on high cuisine Italian restaurant but rather café with very good value. This restaurant could triple the prices and still be considered a good value.
