The restaurant is small and the food very good. The menu is ambitious for a small restaurant, but they do it well. Hand made pasta is their specialty. In a garden courtyard off 5th Avenue, the open air location is quiet and pleasant.

I have been coming to Playa del Carmen since 2001 and everytime I come, I eat in Casa Mediterranean. The food is excellent, the owners are very attentive. For me, the pasta with lobster is the best, but anything in the menu is good. I have never been disappointed like other restaurants in Playa. The quality of the food is... More

We an outstanding meal here. Entrees were large enough to share. Spagetthi Logosta was simply divine. The chocolate merangue dessert was delicious and really homemade. They make all their own pastas here.

First time at this restaurant we were blown away by the pasta. I had lobster fettucine and it was so delicious! The waiter was so accommodating as I wanted a simple white wine sauce and my husband wanted a red sauce. We both got what we wanted and both were great. The 2nd time, my husband had steak that simply... More

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.
