We only popped in for a quick meal ordered a pizza and a drink. Pizza was thin based, with a little garlic as requested with plenty of cheese and toppings. Waiter was very attentive and pizza delivered promptly cooked to perfection.

There are two Il Barettos in Playa but I prefer the one on 26th & 5th. The food is excellent. Probably some of the best Italian food outside of Italy.

We dined there twice during our ten-day stay in Playa del Carmen. Both times we sat at a table on the street. The first time both my husband and ordered meals and drinks. The server was extremely attentive. The second time we had to wait twenty minutes before our waiter showed up to take our order. This was after we... More

This restaurant didn't necessarily stand out amongst the thousands in Playa del Carmen, but the service sure did. We ended up going to this restaurant THREE times while we stayed in Playa, and had Cesar as our server all three nights. He was so great. So nice, attentive without being overbearing, and contributed so much to our dining experience(s). :)... More

Service was poor, portions were small and the prices were high. Not impressive. Handed me the bill and added his own tip in front of me and hovered behind me until I paid.
