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

Every year when we come this is our first stop to unwind and relax. A pizza, especially the Parma, and a bottle of wine is the best way to start a vacation. The homemade pasta is also delicious. The waiters are great, attentive and not bad to look at either. We come here 4-5 times when we are here. Please... More

Great wine, fresh salad, pasta, calamari, and filet. Super clean! Close to excellent shopping. Independent shops and the new mall alike.

The food was good, the atmosphere is nice. We even got a free shot on the house, offered by Gerardo Alvarez, the nice waiter that made the experience even better.

We had a big day on Cozumel and needed to refuel with some pasta! We were looking at their menu when the ?manager offered us free margarita's to entice us. Twist our arms! The free margaritas had not the slightest flavor of tequila...hence, the ease at giving them away, I guess. I agree with the previous comments-blah food, blah service.... More

Service was poor, waiter forget most items and had to be reminded, of which took forever. The food was blaaa not to Italian at all. Tomatoe sauce tasted canned. Lobster was tiny, filet mignon tasted gamey for beef with no seasoning. Ask for dessert to go waiter said it would work.. So basically not to cause a issue we just... More

We ate at this restaurant just before New Year. The food was terrible. I had pasta carbonara, they did not put any cream in it, don't know how an Italian restaurant can do something like that, unless they don't know what they are doing or just don't care. Anyway, it was the worst "carbonara" I have ever eaten. My wife... More
