We were in Mahahual for a little over a month doing some scuba diving and beach relaxing. During that time we probably had Pizza Papi's 15 or so times. It is that good! We loved the Hawaiian with fresh pineapple. The bruschetta with balsamic vinegar reduction is also amazing! As much as anything I love the vibe the place puts... More

We visit Mahahual frequently. Being Italian it is always a first stop to have dinner at Pizza Papi's. The thin crust, wood oven baked pizza's are delicious. It is always such a surprise to find this quality of Italian food within the wonderful Mayan influence of Mahahual! I remember stories of my Calabrese grandmother of how they would gather around...

Last night I had the best pizza outside of Italy! The place is decorated with painted tables and chairs by a local artist that makes it unic and trendy and the food is out of this world....its a must while visiting Mahahual.

Pizza Papi is not right on the beach but in any case worth the extra mile. The pizza and especially the pasta was delicious. The owner is real Italian very welcoming. We definitely would go there again.

Dont judge a book by its cover or you could miss this wonderful pizzeria. It has funky art on the walls, tables and chairs. There are two muertos permanently dining at their own designated table. The pizza is delicious with thin, crispy crust and they have family friendly entertainment at night as well. If you have discovered beautiful Mahahual, dont... More

This might be the best pizza place I have ever encountered. Having read other reviews, I had to find this place...I am glad I did! The pizzas were wonderful, the service was friendly and efficient. They have live music in the evenings, but I was there too early for that.

We just returned from a visit to Mahahual where we stayed in the Casitas. I had read about Pizza Papi, so we made a point of eating there. The decor is really cool, and the staff was very nice! I had a ham, onion, and jalapeno pizza and thought it was good, but my sister-in-law ordered the special pizza and... More
