My favorite Italian restaurant in Playa. I was shocked and terribly disappointed when I walked over and discovered a completely different cuisine (restaurant) had replaced Ileana's.

Although expensive, the food was exceptional. Ileana, the owner is definitely in control of the kitchen and she also greets customers. They make their own pastas by hand and the kitchen is open for viewing. Outside seating is delightful. Many repeat customers and regulars.

We discovered Ileana's almost ten years ago and make it a point to eat there at least once each visit to Playa del Carmen. Ileana is a most hospitable host and loves to visit with her customers. The food is scrumptious ~ the fettuccine pasta is made fresh in-house every day. Our party of four ordered different menu items this... More

I have never had Italian like this - and I have eaten eaten at many top restaurants in the world. The simplicity of this home made food makes the meal so pure and full of flavour. Visit 1 - we have beef carpaccio, 3meat ravioli (just made) in a porcini mushroom tomato sauce, and seafood past in a homemade pesto... More

Excellent food. We have been here many times over the years during our visits to Playa. Maria was very accommodating to our group as one person was not feeling well. She asked the chef to make a simple dish for the guest. The gnocchi with truffle, cream sauce and asparagus was outstanding. My husband loved the meatballs and sausage. The... More
