My wife and I had dinner at La Famiglia last night for the first time and the food was amazing. First, I'd recommend making a reservation in advance...this place is popular and busy, but with good reason. The food, it was delicious. We started by sharing both the bruschetta and caprese salad. Both were good. We then shared a pepperoni/mushroom/green... More

Small but quaint restaurant serving the best seafood pizza. Pizza serving size good for 4 people. Also tried the special of the week which was the clam spaghetti and it was delicious. Not overpriced, high quality food and good service. Love it.

This is one of those places that you consider not reviewing because you want it to remain a secret. Usually when I'm in Playa I stick to fresh seafood and other local flavors. One night we were feeling something new and found la famiglia on TA. We waited about 20 minutes for a table. The service was good and friendly.... More

La Famiglia is an excellent dining experience and value. Located on 10th, it is one block from 5th, where you can spend much more money on a far less enjoyable meal. The staff here is great, providing prompt and friendly service. The pizzas and pastas at this Italian eatery are solid but the best dish here is the Grouper, a... More

Arriving at the restaurant we were told it could be a 20 minute wait. We decided to wait as we read very good reviews of the restaurant and wanted to dine here. We were seated at the bar, drinks were served promptly, we were brought two trays of homemade bruschetta to thank us for waiting. What a nice surprise. Our... More

When we travel, we follow our nose on TripAdvisor restaurant ranking and it is never wrong. This is a small establishment Italian restaurant with incredibly tasty dishes. It does not have a romantic ambiance, but if your focus is the good food with a good price, this is the place you want to try. One thing I have to mention... More

After viewing trip advisor and then spotting this restaurant on 10th we thought it seemed ok so gave it a try. As we walked in we were told it was busy but a table would be ready in 4 minutes....not about 5 minutes, but 4 so I checked my watch. They have a bar with chairs at the bar and... More

We loved this place. The staff was very friendly, and everything we ate was fantastic. Try the Nutella crepes for dessert. One warning: there is no AC!

Ate at La Famiglia last night, gnocchi was really good (daughter) and the lasagna was superb (shared by my wife and I) and we also shared a tiramisu. This was the best tiramisu that either of us have had in many years; If you like tiramisu, do not miss this. We ate upstairs where there is wonderful terrace overlooking the... More
