Fresh, authentic Italian!

Hidden gem a block off of Quinta Avenida. Family owned spot with authentic Italian food. Fresh seafood specials daily and the pizzas looked good (table next to us ordered a few). Wait staff was attentive and the owner came by to check in which was really nice. No A/C, so its a little warm, but once... read more

Loved the food, the service and the price. The waitress, waiter and owner were all super friendly. I had a hard time choosing what I wanted so I got the trio, lasagna, gnocchi and ravioli, all three were delicious. I also enjoyed the fresh salad. It was also the first place I found in PDC with real iced tea. Highly... More

We decided to go to La Famiglia for our first dinner at Playa after reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. As it wasn’t lunch nor dinner time the place was to ourselves. We were greeted by our server whom suggested us a table on the first floor and directed us a nearby fan to try to avoid the... More

This wasn't top of my list. Too many Italians promise much and don't deliver. Don't tell the staff that as the confidence they show from the moment you arrive be-lies the fact that they would have anything said that wasn't anything short of complimentary at the least! It was great! A personal fan was not only welcome but an attention... More

We ate here on our last night of vacation because of the great TripAdvisor reviews (and because my family wanted something other than Mexican food.) We stayed at the Grand Xcaret and it cost $15 for a taxi into Playa. The first impression wasn't great because we had been walking through Playa and were really hot and looking forward to... More

When we arrived there were staff outside waiting for people to stop by. They were very quick to make sure we had a table and were comfortable. The food was good and prices were reasonable. I would eat there again.

Superb restaurant and great friendly staff! My wife and I had the Lobster special which was simply delicious and the Children had an excellent pasta which is all home made. The wine was superb and the Bruschetta was the best that I have ever eaten anywhere. We asked for fries but the restaurant do not do them but unbelievably, the... More

Went there after reading the reviews here/recommended by a friend who lives there. Everything I've tried was superb. Huge pizzas and pasta portions were also very big. I could easily say best Italian food I had in years.

Just ate dinner here tonight with our family and another family we are traveling with. Absolutely loved it! Fabulous pizza, appetizers and drinks were great too. Wish we could have saved room for dessert. Only complaint was the heat...but it's everywhere here. Will definitely be back to visit on another trip!!!

Dinner at La Famiglia is like eating in Italy only you are in the center of Playa. Maybe that's why we eat here at least 2 times a week. Pizza and pasta are homemade and perfect! My favorite meal is the grouper in white wine sauce it's always fresh and portions are huge! The service is exceptional and the host... More
