My husband and I needed a break from Mexican food at every meal and found this Italian restaurant on the corner of the street where our hotel was located. He ordered the penne arrabiata and I got the pasta vegetariana. Both were fine but pretty mediocre. The sauce was very bland. But, with that being said, this was a very... More

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

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.

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
