Good Italian in Mexico

The pasta here was the star. It was so light and delicate. I tried their sampler of their top dishes and enjoyed each one. The sauces were a little different then I was used to but all were good.

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. I had the gorgonzola stuffed ravioli. Delicious but very rich. My wife had the lasagna which had an excellent/complex bolognese sauce. Desert was a "chocolate drop",... More

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 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.
