We visited Casa M after several our Royal Resorts friends told us it was their favorite restaurant in Playa. What a delightful surprise to find delicious, authentic Italian creations in Mexico. The owners, Mario and Maria, are from Italy and were very hospitable. We started with the grilled calamari, which was superb. For an entree we shared an order of... More

We've been coming here for years and they're very consistent when it comes to their food. Great quality and service and we love Mary and Mauricio, they're the gem of PDC. We look forward to eating here every year.

We dine here frequently as a couple and with our family. The food is ALWAYS excellent. The fish is fresh and all of the dishes are prepared with great attention to authentic Italian flavor. The restaurant is a nice oasis just off of 5th Avenue. It is quiet and relaxing so you can genuinely enjoy your meal and conversation.

High prices for avarage food. We went there, because of the good reviews here and we were disappointed. Nevertheless, there were only 3 tables with customers the manager and the waiter never came to check if everything was ok during our meal. It was interesting how they offer you napkins in the end.

The homemade pasta is incredible. The ravioli with sage butter is the best anywhere in Playa. My husband gets the spaghetti with sausage and loves it. The staff is very good and take care of your every need. This place is easy to miss as it is set back in a lovely cenote type setting off of 5th. Do Not... More

This restaurant is slightly off of 5th Ave, so you have to be looking for it. Well worth the search as the pasta was excellent and the complimentary bruschetta appetizer was dynamite. I had ravioli and my husband had spaghetti with fresh cherry tomatoes topping. They use both the garlic and salt very well to amp up the flavors. We... More

Chose this place because of reviews for our daughter's birthday dinner---wanted something special and this was it! When walking near the low numbered streets crossing the main pedestrian drag, watch on the ocean side up high for a small sign with an arrow pointing in the little alley. A small, beautiful little semi-outdoor spot surrounded by tropical greenery and galleries.... More
