Freshly made dishes!

Daily buffet offers a variety of freshly made dishes to choose from! Courtyard dining available and very reasonably priced entrees! Very friendly staff! We will go back and try to save room for the Tiramisu we keep hearing about!

This exquisit restaurant opens only on weekdays monday to friday from 1pm to 5pm. You enter it through a small garden with two tables and a big cage with a lot of twittering budgerigars. As you come inside the restaurant you'll see a buffetstyle presentation of what you can have your pasta with. All dishes come along with a soup,... More

I was really looking forward to finally trying this place and it was very disappointing. Our soups arrived cold and the taste was very bland. The "lemonade" had this strange synthetic film like one of those Electrolyte beverages and you get pre-cooked/warmed up food which makes the noodles taste very overcooked. My boyfriend (who is a no fuss, eats everything... More

We ate at this little local restaurant last night on Valentine's Day. I understand that they are normally open only at lunch so we had a rare treat. This little place was originally a home on the island and the owners have turned part of it into a restaurant. They cook and serve directly out of the original kitchen and... More

This Italian restaurant is the owners house with food opening prepared for you to select and enjoy. The only caviot is that once an entree is gone, it's one less to choose from. So get there early, around 2pm or before for the best choices. Truly high quality Italian cooking done by the Chefs Mom & Daughter. Treat yourself and... More

A local introduced us to this wonderful restaurant many years ago and we look forward to a late lunch there every time we're on the island. We have never been disappointed. It's a shame that it's not open for dinner, but we find that after eating there in the afternoon, we don't need to eat again until breakfast the next... More

Ok folks, this is one great surprise here in Cozumel. An Italian eatery with a cook who immigrated here from Italy 27 years ago serving up fresh Italian dishes that are different each day. As others have said the food is served in the cook's home either in the air conditioned kitchen or served outside on the patio. The Cucina... More

This place is locals favorite for lunch. They are not open for Dinner but serve an awesome lunch. We go there often with friends to eat good Italian and catch up on what's happening on the island. It's a family run place that's loves what they cook and want you to keep coming back. Check the place out and you... More

Home made Italian dishes, and not just pasta! Excelled stuffed chicken breasts. And Vegetarian entrees as well. All meals come with delicious soup and salad, and either fruit juice or tea. Of course, there is also wine for purchase.
