For Mahahual, this is the place to be on a Saturday night. It's a scene of locals, expats, and gringos mixing it up over cold beers and good pizza. Its a short walk from downtown Mahahual. Bring bug spray in the wet season. Excellent service as well! BucketlistBackpacker.com

The complimentary bruschetta is on delicious homemade bread. He instantly customized our pizza (my partner is vegetarian, I'm not), and our salad was crunchy and fresh. The pizza crust was thin...

Michele (who is Italian) and Alejandra are the nicest people ever, and the pizzas are absolutely delicious. You won't regret this.

We knew some members of the band that played on Friday night, so we all went and watched and enjoyed the music and pizza. It was a fun atmosphere both inside and out.

Seriously, fantastic wood fired oven pizza, great salads in a rustic, yet clean atmosphere. This little place in the casitas near the cruise ship dock is fantastic. Run by an Italian guy, and a great staff, worth seeking out if you find yourself in this neck of the woods! We had a fun evening here with 5 kids who all... More

Went twice during my trip and it was great pizza and highly recommended. Pasta looked good but too hooked onto the pizza.
