A Mixed Bag, but Mostly Good

First, the map is incorrect. The guy outside was not aggressively trying to get me to enter, so I entered and had dinner as a result. I first ordered the appetizer of bruschetta and a bottle of San Pellegrino. The bruschetta had cheese and the bread was stale and crunchy. The menu didn't say... read more

Just got back from Don Mario, after having the greatest Pizza Margarita I've ever had! Don't miss it, it's not on the crowded fifth avenue.

Looking for a place to have dinner. saw this nice italian restaurant at the corner. The service was excellent. We ordered a small pizza as an appetizer. Great! My linguine with calamari, clams and mussels was delicious. My wife was very pleased. We will go back when we return to Playa.

Our family ate supper at this quaint Italian restaurant in downtown. The food was pretty good. The bread was a little stale. Even though there was an extensive wine list on the menu, they were out of the brand we wanted. The salads and ravioli were pretty tasty. We did find a better Italian Restaurant while visiting. The food was... More

Pasta and pizza were superb at a fair price! The waiter was pretty friendly and explained everything! Food always came pretty fast and fresh cooked... More

Worst service ever. The waiter was rude, the food is bad! Linguini was soaked in oil (or bad butter), the bruschetta came with cheese, although not written on menu and after the waiter was told that one of us has severe dairy alergies. Saw us "scratching" the chese from the toast, but did not offer to change it for non... More
