Great food on 5th Avenue

The Pizza was very good, the draft beer less so, not sure what was wrong but strange. The Pizza bases are thin and light, the toppings fresh and delicious.

My friend and I shared fettucine alfredo and a salad. Prices were quite reasonable and the servers were very friendly, helpful and attentive! I have never had such delicious alfredo sauce! They add nutmeg, which was a brilliant yet subtle flavour! The fettucine was also made in house. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We just came back from Playa Del Carmen and if you're ever down there on the famous 5th Avenue you must try Il Baretto! First of all Ricardo, Pavel and Miguel took excellent care of us. But to follow a great meal they dropped the most amazing WARM chocolate brownie down to say thanks to our group. I've never in... More

You might know by now that La Quinta means lots of people, lots of different music, high prices, but it also means the heart of Playa del Carmen. So if you want a hidden, quiet place, Il Baretto is not it. However, if you want to experience the best pizza in Playa del Carmen, right from the pumping heart of... More

My husband and I spent a week in Playa del Carmen enjoying the atmosphere and sights. We ate twice at Il Baretto Italian Restaurant. The Pizza (thin crust stone oven) was excellent. Single pizza with salad or appetizer is perfect for sharing. Service was excellent (one young waiter was fantastic - sorry don't remember his name) but all were attentive.... More

The place had a very good atmosphere and the wait staff was very attentive. We had the special which was a light sauce with small lobsters cut in half and served. The whole lobsters kinda turned my wife off because of the fishy smell they had because of the whole lobster being cut down the middle. I think overall the... More

My advise is that always keep the Beer cool on ice. The music from the bussines next to the restaurant is always very loud. The rest is very good.

The cook is Italian, so it's always a good sign. I took ravioli with ricotta and spinach, and the taste was hella good! The place itself it's very easygoing , not very fancy, but the waiter and the hostes are lovely. Maybe I will come back in the future!

This is lovely place and we go there every time we visit Playa del Carmen. The food quality is excellent, the place is small and simple but really charming. Everything looks also very clean and tidy. Everyone, from the waiters to the manager are very friendly and welcoming and ready to help. They have the best pizza I have tried... More
