Gotta Love The Pizza

I was on my own just wanted a quick bite to eat, and ordered a pepperoni pizza. It was a great pizza, crust was perfect, lots of toppings but not so many the pizza sags and gets soggy. Traditional brick pizza oven. The service was great and the waiter spoke english. I had a watermelon drink and... read more

Such a shame - this is, by all accounts, the best pizza in central Merida. And the pizza is good - I finally was able to get some my second time there! The first night, despite signs saying they open at 6, myself and two random backpackers were told to leave at 6:50 as they weren't open yet. We chose... More

We went early at 6pm the place was totally EMPTY- we were 3 and sat at a table for 4- the owner came out and started yelling at us- literally. We told him we would move to a smaller table if he needed the table. He was so rude- yelling that we got up and left- he ran to the... More

This is really good true Italian-style pizza. We live nearby and regularly order it for delivery. The Coloniale and the 4 cheese are favorites. The calzones are good too, though it's too bad they don't let you choose your own ingredients ( they have 3 options and no substitutions). All of the ingredients are very high quality. People seem to... More

"This is the best pizza I have ever had." We started with The Rafaello salad, beautiful mixed greens with avocado, tomato and fresh shaved parmesan. The salad was huge, big enough for two to split. Dressing is make your own, with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The salad comes with yummy bread fresh out of the stone oven. We followed... More

My mom and I stopped in here late one night after a long day of visiting ruins. It was in our neighborhood and we were just craving something simple. We stopped in around 10 - the adorable patio seating was already taken and highly coveted (everyone who came in the door eyed those spots), so we settled for a table... More

I used to praise this establishment until they brought in two terrible waiters. They are now gone and the frustration to eat there has gone away... Food hasn't change tastes just as good as it did a year ago when I stopped going.

Raffallo's makes some of the best pizza in Mérida. Not too much cheese, thin crust, good ingredients, good oven... all the basic elements in place with a little TLC!

Really great Italian style pizza in Merida. I've been there several times and it is consistantly good. (I'm from NYC so I don't have low pizza standards). The only minus is that Raffaello is sometimes a little grumpy but I suppose that's part of the ambiance of this place.

After reading last night about how good the food is at Rafaello's and looking at the pictures of their food on Trip Advisor and wondering if it could be as good as it looks, my wife and I took a taxi over there for pizza, salad and dessert tonight. The one thing I can say right off the top is... More
