We had good memories of our last meal at Il Baretto (where we had eaten on a previous trip) so it was the only Italian restaurant we made time for on this trip. We were incredibly disappointed and unimpressed. Though the service was decent, it felt pushy. Worst of all was the lobster fettuccine I ordered. It was utterly terrible.... More

We enjoyed a quiet dinner here even though it's on 5th Ave. The waiter was great and the food was good.

Very well located directly at the famous 'Quinta Avenida' it invites to take a seat and watch people strolling along it. Warmly welcomed we received some Italian bread on the house, which was nice. We orderd Pizza and Ravioli, and shared them. Both dished were tasty but not outstanding. Still, we ate nice for fair prices.

We stopped by one evening, try to find a good meal for a decent price on Avenida Quinta, a sea of overpriced tourist traps. It was an island of calm in the midst of all the madness that is Quinta. Great service, attentive, but not intrusive. We got a couple of pizzas and a pasta dish. The pasta was okay,... More

Stopped for a quick bite before heading back to our resort. Fresh housemade pasta and great sauces. Staff was attentive and service was quick. Large variety of pastas and sauces as well as pizzas and seafood. Only drawback and this is had nothing to do with the food or staff was that it is on a street with cross traffic... More

This is one of our favorite spots to eat on fifth avenue. The service is great! Excellent food. We have never had a bad experience at this place and we eat here every time we are in playa.

We had a great meal here during or recent visit to the Riviera Maya. We had gone to Playa to go to another Italian restaurant that we picked off of trip advisor but they we closed for renovations. We stumbled onto this place and were really pleased with our choice. Some had pizza and some pasta. Everyone enjoyed their meals!... More

It is a nice place to have a meal, fresh, clean and decent prices. Their pizza is really good. They could work a little bit in making their waiters more knowlegable on food and drinks in general.
