Who would have thought I could get good Italian food in Cancun? The restaurant has a very nice feel to it, think white table cloth. It's in the front of a high end mall.

We had a group of 10 during Easter week and arrived at 6pm. The place was empty, but by 7pm it was wall to wall. The service was very good, but I agree the wine list was limited. Everyone had Italian mainstream meals and no one was disappointed. The small children were accommodated with the usual chicken fingers and pizza.... More

I was here with my family in 2012. 3 years later, still a consistent restaurant for food and service. They put fresh bread with a tasty olive oil to start. We also had the bruschetta, which was absolutely delicious. They suggested we take the fried calamari with stuff shrimp and arugula, now this dish was decadent and delicious. We also... More

We have visited this restaurant for over 15 years, always attracted by the fine cuisine and the specially tasty fish they used to have. Last visit on march 31 we found the clams entry a real trick, mostly shells and little content. The italian dishes very good. The wine selection very limited. I complained about the clams and evidently they... More

Very good restaurant! Nice live music, decor, and staff. One of my favorite restaurants to go to when visiting Cancun( sister restaurant (focusing more on seafood) Mare- is nice as well. Good pasta selections , nice steak entrees- very nice atmosphere- obvious as to why this restaurant has been there for many years- while others come and go.

We had a fantastic waiter named Juan. He was very gracious and had great recommendations. My date truly enjoyed the homemade pasta dish he chose and my steak was perfectly prepared. The wine list was also extensive and we enjoyed our choice of the Malbec. Ask for the decanter for the wine it's quite extraordinary and part of the experience.... More

I know I was in Mexico, but after a few days I was longing for something other than Mexican or Mayan food. Went to Cenacolo not expecting much but was I surprised!
