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

Maria and Maurizio, are always there to welcome you. Their Italian home style cooking and wine selection is to die for. Great service, excellent dining and now open seven days a week for the high season. Don't miss it!

Original home made italian food...come lo faceva la nonna! This is a small italien family restaurant. The home made pasta, the fames roostbeef con rucola e parmigiano, the fish and steaks are absolutely amazing. After arriving we eat for tree days in other restaurant and it was horrible. We discover this place by coincidence and we stai until we left... More

its a small restaurant in a small alley at the fifth it has a nice atmosphere and the food is good, but almost no vegetarian options and needs a little bit of atmosphere music to give the final touch.... the food again is good service is good,

Greatness all around. Great service, fresh incredible food, beautiful ambiance. I really wish we knew before now. Bruschetta to die for, buttery yet light homemade ravioli and the best tuna steak ever.

We were strolling down 5th Avenue when we met this charming man who asked us if we would like to try his restaurant. My husband and I recalled reading good reviews and so agreed. We walked a few short steps down the side street to his lovely little spot under the trees with hanging lanterns. We had one of the... More

Casa Mediterranea is a great little restaurant hidden just off Fith Ave in Playa. Look for the yellow sign on Fith Ave between 6th & 8th Streets on the ocean side. It's worth the little exra effort to find. Three visits in three years and great food and service every time. Nice little restaurant run by great locals.

Fantastic service, simply excellent pasta. My son raved about the lasagna, while I enjoyed the very hearty spaghetti with meat sauce. Tiramisu was heavenly. Tucked away, you wouldn't know you were right off 5th Ave. So glad we found it!

This small Italian restaurant tucked in an alleyway between 6th and 8th, off Avenida 5th in Playa del Carmen is a real find. The service and food were exceptional. Prices are moderate. The atmosphere is very relaxing and quite enough to have a conversation! The gnocchi was some of the best I have ever had; like little potato pillows. I... More

We had a large group dinner here and we couldn't have asked for more. The food and wine were superb and very reasonably priced and portioned. Pasta is made in house and cooked to perfection. The owners and staff were incredibly attentive and so welcoming. It's tucked away so you have the opportunity to have quiet conversation in an intimate... More
