Best place ever! The staff is very friendly and professional. The food is incredible, so fresh and excellent. The seafood is very fresh and offered in a variety of styles, but the best are the mussels - a must have! Would highly recommed trying this restaurant! :)

Based on the reviews I would say this was very disappointing.Three in our party of four had Italian. They thought the lasagne and fetticini were average. My husband was not impressed with his gnocci , dense and heavy.I tried it as well. I had the fish with seafood. Fish was cooked in paper with a very nice flavor but the... More

Dear disappointed customer, our style is not refined but genuine and easy. The local is simple but full of color and mix of different art. Our cuisine reflects these things and it is Italian orthodox way to cooking fish and meat. You will not find the same of the american`s italian restaurant, you can find here the true italian flavors.... More

Great service. The owner, his wife, and daughter work there. Mixed bruschetta is very nice. Ask about daily specials. I had fish soup with was fantastic. Risottos are very good. All the other dishes I saw looked great

Came to this restaurant after seeing a great review on this site and received as expected, a great dining experience. The seafood was by far the best we've had in Playa (we've been coming for years and have lived here previously) The service we received was flawless, rare for many restaurant visits these days, so we were delighted when we...

Based on the positive TA reviews, we went to La Trattoria with high expectations, and we were not the least bit disappointed. The quality, presentation and service were all do notch and easily the equal of any top shelf Italian restaurant in the states. We began with a perfectly prepared Frito Misto of shrimp, calamari, and veggies. More than enough... More

My wife and I went last night. What a nice surpise. The owner suggested the daily special. A fish dish in tomato sause, a little spicy, containing octupus, calamari, shrimp, mussels, clams and two white fist. With a glass of wine for 250 pesos. What a deal, couldn't pass it up. We started with bruschetta which was excellent. And of... More

I have eaten at 5 Italian restaurants in Playa del Carmen. This is the best one. It is not on 5th Ave, but it is close at 28 st and 1st ave. This restaurant has home made fresh Italian food prepared by real Italians. The pasta is home made fresh pasta, the fish are bought fresh daily from fishermen in... More

We had a great experience. Unsure of what we wanted, we thought we would start out with Tapas in a cozy, romantic atmosphere. After looking at the menu, we noticed there was much more than Tapas, which really confused us, so we told our waiter what we wanted to eat and they created it ! Superb ! Delicious Lobster dish,...
