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 stopped here on our way back from Tulum. We were in suits and cover ups but wanted some good food. We were very happy with our dinner. I ordered the gnocchi with pesto $15 a misto salad $10 and a bottle of water $4.00 My bill was 32.00 with tax and tip. The salad was a little expensive for... More

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.

I'm a sucker for brick oven pizza, and loved every bite.Extra thin,crispy crust with little char spots-delicious.Right on Fifth Ave. for people watching. The house Malbec from Argentina was very good. The cesar salad is huge and begs to be shared. Our dinner looked so good, the next table to be seated asked for exactly the same and also enjoyed...

Decided to give this place a try after craving pizza. Manager Luca came by the table to welcome us and give a few recommendations. We didn't try the pasta but it is all homemade and looked great. However, the pizza and calzone were amazing. We love thin crust and it was very light and the sauce was delicious. The Calzone... More

I had a "boring" dish, Spaghetti Carbonara, but it was so good I finished the plate and it was quite big. You could taste that someone knows what he's doing and we even asked and the waiter told us the chef is from Italy. (I choose to believe him because the pastas were really really good). The service could be... More
