Great pizzas - a must try!

We had an excellent dinner here during our stay in Mahahual and after a looooong diving day. This restaurant is easy to miss, because it is not in downtown. If you find Taormina Cafe, which is by the way also very good, just continue maybe 200 m the same street and you will find Pizza Papi. They... read more

Very friendly folks, eager to share local knowledge and some good laughs. Colorful ex-pats from the US and Italy mingling over great drinks (excellent Margaritas and Mojitos) and cold beers. Excellent brick-oven pizzas. Monday night is Open Mic; although it wasn't that "Open" as a local (average) ex-pat band seemed reluctant to let a local Mexican singer-guitar-player take the stage....

This was a nice little side trip away from the beach for the night. It's a short cab ride and in a quite part of town. (20 pesos plus tip).The place itself is nice and typical of the area. Other than that though, I'd say the pizza was good, but not over the top. The night we visited there was... More

Great casual restaurant. Fast, friendly service. Good prices. Delicious bruchetta and thin crust pizza. We had the chocolate truffles for dessert and they were sweet and satisfying. Cute decor. Open air screened in dining room. We will go back when we can.

We ate here three times during our one week stay. Amazing wood fired pizza, ready in 7 minutes. Inexpensive and fun atmosphere!

We picked up a couple of pizzas to-go here on our first night in Mahahaul on a recent 4 day visit. Pizza was good, thin crust. Fast, friendly service. This is not your Papa John's commercial pie made on a conveyer belt oven - so expect a little variability. Its real wood-fired oven pizza with fresh ingredients. It is located... More

Agostino the owner is from Froggia Italy and makes wonderful dishes, great bruschetta, pizza, pastas and normal traditional fare. Beer is cold, inexpensive and Agostino is incredibly friendly. Wifi is very fast and free.
