Very small establishment, Italian owned and the head matra de was very accommodating even though we did not have reservations. We were seated within a half an hour and he would stop by our table just to chat and see if the waiter was keeping us happy. The food was some of the best we had in Playa Del Carmen.... More

Great Italian food. Everything arrived as ordered and was clearly fresh and made to order. They happily changed one of our orders even after it was placed. The menu prices were appropriate with quality that matched expectation. I'd highly recommend to anyone hoping for a taste of Italy while in the Playa.

This out of the way restaurant on 10 ave Playa Del Carmen was a great find a few years ago and has maintained it's quality and food quality over the years. The difficulty now is that you now need a reservation to get in at a decent time. Our pasta this trip was a bit sticky and a bit cold,... More

The food was poor, the service poor & they even wanted a 20% tip. I should be getting a 20% discount, not paying a tip.

We made a reservation because we read that the restaurant can get very busy. Our reservations were for 6:30. It was still hot in the building at that time. Since it is an open air restaurant, it had cooled considerably by the time we left. Carlos was our waiter. He was great. He spoke English well and was very knowledgeable... More
