At first it looks like a pretty normal restaurant but once inside the setting is that of an Italian courtyard and is very shabby Chic ! The service was first class , the food was excellent and the value for money was great at around £110 for 7 people with starters and mains and drink great italian in Playa del... More

Our family decided to try this restaurant based on the presentation of their handmade pasta and their great location. We had both pasta and pizza. Quality pizza toppings with great taste and well prepared seafood pasta dish. We loved the atmosphere and the location. The staff was very attentive and the prices were very reasonable. We would definitely recommend it!

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.

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.

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.

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.

hi Mrnietoe Thank you very much for taking the time and sharing your opinion with us , we are really sorry about the air conditioning, but as you might have noticed the restaurant is a part of a hotel, (Hacienda Mariposa) which has an open air garden.
