Last night dinner in playa

Decent ambience. Wasn't that hungry. Ordered 2 salads, they came out to be nice. Also ordered a sangria which was a little too sweet but the cherry on d cake was the perfect spaghetti aglio olio we have ever had. Really nice and simple. Loved it.. A perfect ending to the trip here in Playa.

We had dinner here one night & lunch a couple of days later. The pizza is really good and a good deal price-wise. We also had ravioli (I think it had shrimp in it) and it was super good. The waitstaff was great - very attentive and polite.

My 2 kids and I had pasta, pizza and gnocchi. Food was ok. Nothing special though. Service was attentive and at the end way too fast. I still had a last slice of pizza in my hand, when the waiter removed my plate. A NOGO! All in all quite ok.

We were looking for some great Italian for a change and saw this place along 5th Ave. We could not resist all the homemade pasta and gave it a try. What a wonderful surprise, one of the best meals we have had in Playa. Gnocchi, stuffed ravioli, thin Sicilian pizza, it was all amazing! Highly recommended.

We ate here in May 2015 after randomly selecting it from the many, many restaurants available. We were drawn in by the friendly and welcoming staff who were offering a taster slice of their pizza outside. I had a pizza and my Girlfriend had a pasta dish, both tasted fresh and were very tasty.

Our waiter Teyo, was great, very friendly, prompt, and courteous. The food was fantastic, we actually ate here twice during our stay, rather than the included food at the resort. The parma pizza is amazing, as was the gnocchi sorrentina and the fettuccine bolognese. Definitely recommend eating here while visiting 5th avenue in Playa del Carmen.

The food is good but expensive, the portions are very small, does not has air conditioned, the place is well decorated and has a great environment. Maybe you should try it.

Homemade pasta and you could taste the difference. Sampled the pizza as well, and it was the same sort of quality. Wait staff was very personable, overall nothing but good things to say. Nice patio seating as well.
