Great Italian Restaurant

We have been dining at Cenacola every year on our vacation in Cancun for over 16 years. The food is always wonderful and the service is excellent. We highly recommend it.

Pasta is always fresh......but not really worth the prices. I can't complain about the food because it is good, but I feel there are other places to go for a better value........especially within walking distance.

Went past this place for years, finally tried it. I wasted a lot of years. Best Italian food I every had in Cancun and better than some in the States. When I tell you food and service was great you can take it to the bank.

Cenacolo, while not on the bay side of Kulkulcan, has a large panoramic window that gives a full view of the sunset over the water. We were seated in a banquette and received skilled service from our bottle of wine through our plate of mango panna cotte.
