This restaurant was overall very good. Food was very fresh, pasta is homemade, pizza was thin and crispy and tasty. The wait staff is very attentive. If you like to people watch, they have great outdoor seating available. Very charming and a definite HIT in Play del Carmen. I will be going back next year.

The food was excellent. The service was a bit slow and they kept forgetting things. The food was great BUT my whole family got sick the next day. Five different people, five different plates, 5 different drinks (most with no ice) and everyone got sick. Beware!

As we love Playa del Carmen and look to visit whenever possible, we stopped at this corner location along 5th Ave on a whim. Everything ordered was made with quality ingredients, nice attention to detail and very tasty indeed. We tried pastas, salads, pizza and home-made desserts! We will return.

Most nights they offer 3 for 90 pesos! You cannot beat this price on fifth, or anywhere for that! Service is great and the staff is fun. They remembered us each time we walked by. They end your mean with a free shot of lemoncello. Start your night here !!!

The interior invites you to enter and took our chances ordering a steak. The one with port is delicious. The chef is italian and you see that on the dishes they serve. We ordered also a Malbec wine and the margaritas were for free. A place to remember if we visit Mexico Playa Del Carmen next time. We paid only... More

I ordered a caprese salad. The tomatoes of the caprese salad where old and soft. Then I ordered a prosciuto and mushroom pizza and the prosciuto was the cheapest hame they found in the corner supermarket. The olive oil presented in the table in a nice italian bottled brand, they simply use the bottles for presentation and refill them with... More

We always seem to have the same thing when we go here, why change when it is good. Huge mixed salad, definitely value for the amount you get. And you can not beat the view. We usually share one of their pizzas (there are a lot of pizza choices in this town) and this one is consistently nice and crispy,... More
