Nice pizzas

I just had the Pizza Hawaii and it was super good. The service is ok and friendly. It is not just a tourist trap.

I hate writing a poor review, especially when I had such high hopes. My friend and I had ordered two different kinds of pizza. Of the two neither of them were good. The meat on mine tasted old, like it had been left out, making the pizza pretty difficult to choke down. We had also ordered two drinks with our... More

They actually have 2 locations along 5th Avenue. Nice friendly atmosphere and staff. The food was remarkable, including the pizza. Prices were reasonable as well. Will definitely revisit here again.

This was by far one of the worst pizza experiences I have ever had. To start off, it wasn't even hot. It was poorly cooked and lacked flavor. The sausage on the pizza were grey, fatty, and tasted as horrible as it looked. This place is expensive and crappy. Don't go here thinking you'll get a delicious authentic Italian pizza,... More

We had a nice meal here even though it is on 5th Avenue (the tourist trail). The pasta, particularly the Ravioli was excellent. It is expensive for pasta, especially in Mexico!

Looking to have a break from Mexican food, my friend and I decided to give Il Baretto a try. My friend and I ordered the Caprese Salad and the Pizza Luna to share. The Caprese Salad was fresh and tasty. The prosciutto was salty, so if you had a bite of that with everything, the pizza wasn't bad. I didn't... More

With so many restaurants lining Ave Cinco in PDC, the choices are mind-boggling. After a day of adventure seeking, we were not interested in having a really large dinner - and it just so happened that Il Baretto was right up the street from our hotel. The sign out front told us that Pizza was served. Just the ticket. The... More

Ok so you're out on 5th looking for a decent casual restaurant with a happy vibe and the food smells great. You must be at Il Baretto Italian restaurant in Playa Del Carmen. Service beyond anything else you experienced in Playa. Try the Ameritriciana pasta (cooked...not El Danté) in a rose sauce. Then accompany that with the Mailona pizza cooked... More
