Excellent dinner

My husband and I visited for dinner. The setting is romantic. We both ordered the fish "A La Pepe". It was a creamy white sauce and the fish was melt in your mouth good. Instead of the vegetables I requested the pasta with more of the sauce. I couldn't stop eating. My husband and I agree, hands... read more

A friend 'kind of ' recommended this restaurant, said the food was good, but the prices are high. I think that the prices are on par with this area and for the ambience, but the food was just OK, and relatively small portions. The thing I hated was our waiter was rather rude, just being 'cheeky', and he knew he... More

After a 4 hour fishing trip we had enough mahi mahi and trigger fish to feed me almost every dinner (and I was there 8 nights! =) so all of the restaurants in Puerto Aventuras pretty much offer "you hook, we cook" fresh fish preparation and Massimo did so well that I chose them twice! I selected the mushroom cream... More

The complimentary homemade breadsticks and tomato sauce served before the meal are to die for. I had gnocci one night, an a pizza the other night and I was delighted with the food. Great service as well!

My wife, daughter and I had dinner here based on the reviews. While we typically eat local food when traveling, this placed looked very nice and was relatively crowded compared to other resturants. I had the fish with capers and tomatoes, my wife had the lime chicken and my daughter had pizza. We all shared clams and veal carpaccio. Each... More

I love this restaurant. We have eaten there far too much. The fish is my favorite and lasagna is my husbands. I have not been there in about a year as we moved away but we did live in PA and enjoyed a friendly and professional staff that we became very friendly with. Lovely quality food that is reasonably priced... More

Great outdoor location and ambience. My kids loved the pizza. I loved the pasta. Our waitress was very attentive and made the night more fun. This was our best restaurant experience in Pierre Aventuras!

Italian restaurant with outdoor patio seating in the marina in Puerto Aventuras. Actually very good italian dishes, not something you would necessarily expect in PA. It is outdoors, so it is somewhat casual but more upscale than most of the places in the marina. Fairly good wine selection. There is the potential for an occasional mesquito, so if your not...
