Rolandi¹s Restaurant Bar & Pizzeria As you enter the restaurant you can sense the romantic, old world aromas emanating from the kitchen and the wood fired oven. The inside dining room is air conditioned, and then the view expands from the waterfront terrace to the beautiful Caribbean. A relaxing view from the covered terrace offers gorgeous sunsets and dive boats gently crossing the seascape. The terrace bar is a great place to meet people day or night. Serving your favorite cocktail and premium liquors with an incredible view and relaxing ambiance. An extensive Italian menu, inspired with a passion for taste, includes local seafood, veal, pasta and of course, wood fired pizza. All the seafood is prepared fresh with fresh herbs and high quality olive oil. Always ask for the catch of the day and pairing it with the right wine is easy. The wine selection is excellent and reasonably priced. The menu makes you want to come back for more. Rolandi¹s looks and feels very upscale but the prices say otherwise. The food is amazing. The location is ideal with a fantastic view and a friendly staff. This is a beautiful spot to celebrate life and eat with a loved one.

Beautiful location. Attentive waitstaff. We started with the ceviche (Squid, octopus and shrimp - Round 1) Followed with the frutti de mar paella (Squid, octopus and shrimp - Round 2) and the frutti de mar spaghetti (Squid, octopus and shrimp - Round 3).

We ate in the open area right on the water. Beautiful location. Our server was excellent and the food was amazing! We ordered quite a bit of food and drinks and our tab was only $60 (3 people)! Will definitely return if I visit Cozumel again!

Rolandi's in San Miguel is the place to watch the sunset while having dinner.

Rolandi's Pizza is a seaside restaurant. We arrived 30 minutes before sunset. We were able to sit next to the railing and had an unobstructed view of the sea and sunset. Wow. Great spot.

It’s not even close. Rolandi’s is by far our favorite restaurant on the island. I recently returned to Rolandi’s, and, as always, chose to dine on the beautiful oceanfront deck facing Playa del Carmen. The sunsets are gorgeous, but the food is even better. I’m a big fan of ceviche in general, but Rolandi’s Mediterranean-style ceviche is truly fabulous. Expertly-prepared... More

Very reasonable prices. I had the fettuccini with mushrooms, meat sauce, cream, tomatoes, and a hint of pepper for only 140 peso and it was a generous serving. It was quite good and the noodles were a perfect al dente. Nice atmosphere too. The only negative: the Rolandi website advertised April being the month of their 30th anniversary and anybody... More
