I brought my family for supper here and although the home made pasta I had was quite tasty, the other meals were heavily salted, to the point of inedible. There is another Italian restaurant in the square that might be a better choice.

One of the best restaurants in Mexico...Surprising you'd come to mexico and discover the best italian restaurant. Great atmosphere, attentive staff, and a polite professional owner...unlike most restaurants in puerto.

The meals - were mixed reviews mostly... More

We meant to return for a meal at the restaurant but weren't able to get the chance before we left - but the next time we go down we will definitely eat here. Service was very fast and very good. If you choose to eat... More

We ate here twice in the last week and are pleased to report that the high quality food has not changed. We walked by their kitchen one afternoon as they were cleaning and everything was sparkling WHITE. The pizza with the thin crispy crust was delicious as was the ravioli. Even though it is not on the menu, you can... More

It's all here. Not sure why it took us so long to stop here. The food is very good. Service is great and you can't beat the view. Will be back.

This really is a lovely restaurant overlooking the Dolphins. The food is certainly some of the best in Puerto Aventuras, always exceptionally well presented and the taste absolutely wonderful. We have been many times and will certainly continue to do so.

With an extensive menu and attentive staff, you may dine on authentic Italian food in the Caribbean. We found the pasta dishes always spot on. The wine list could be expanded a little more, but overall well done.
