This restaurant is located on the quiet end of Avenida Quinta (5th Avenue). There is outdoor seating which is great for people watching and entertainers to amuse you. I did enjoy my meal which was spaghetti carbonara and nice sangria cocktail which was ok. I mostly enjoyed the environment and location of the restaurant. The decor was very inviting and... More

Not worth it, ordinary food. One of us even had cold pasta. If you order a «bottle of water», they'll charge you 6$ each small bottle. I felt like it was a scam, because the price on the menu was 2.5$ If you don't mention that you want the cheap one, they'll bring you an imported bottle without informing you.... More

My wife's family has a 3rd generation Italian restaurant here near Boston which is constantly awarded, so we are used to having good Italian food. We were staying at an all inclusive from the 11th-19th nearby, and even though our meals were included, we wanted to switch it up a little and met some friends at the resort which we... More

There were 6 of us that went out for dinner, and ordered a variety of pasta dishes and entrees. The lasagna seemed like it came out of frozen dinner box, the fish was quite bland, and the lobster was overcooked in the pasta dish. The service is inconsistent and terrible. Our original waiter was nice, but no where to be... More

We had excellent service from the start. Pizza was thin and crispy and very tasty. The pasta was homemade and delicious. Good wine list. An all together pleasant evening and gets our vote for the best Pizza in Playa.

After several days of Mexican food for lunch and dinner, we were ready for a change! The homemade pastas drew us in and we chose a pasta dish with mixed seafood. Seafood Diabla, if I remember correctly, with clams, muscles and shrimp in a cream sauce over linguini. Fresh and flavorful, while not overly expensive for 5th Ave. The service... More

Anyone visiting Playa, knows it has no shortage of restaurants. Over my two weeks here, I came to dread heading out each night into the cat-calls and barker solicitations of 5th Ave to find a place to eat. Tonight while trying to navigate the crowd to get to a specific seafood restaurant for dinner, Tanya drifted left to look at... More

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.
