This place has been in Mahahual for at least 8 years and the pizza is just amazing, i also tried the tuna salad, they have good wines, live music almost every night and the best attention of its owners and Renato the bartender. If you are a pizza and fun lover don't miss it!!

We ordered a vegetarian, shrimp and lobster pizza. The lobster pizza was the best and it was great! Good service and good music.

Went here for dinner as it was right across from our hotel, but found ourselves very impressed. The pizza was authentic, with a thin, crispy base and generous toppings. The pasta was home-made, tasty, and well presented. Pricing too was very reasonable, i.e. comparable with other restaurants in the area. Would have recommended this restaurant if it were in Europe...in... More

Oh my god, this pizza place is so good! All you pizza lovers in Mahahual must visit Pizza Papi. I visited here two times with my boyfriend and we enjoyed all our pizzas. I recommend the shrimp pizza. Thank you Papi!

Pizza Papi is away from the vast majority of restaurants in Mahahual. The other restaurants, which are typically good, but fairly same to one another, are on the malacon, the "boardwalk" so to speak. Pizza Papi is in the other section of town, about a mile away from the shore in a residential area. It is certainly worth leaving the... More

We just returned from a week-long trip to Mahahual and ate at Pizza Papi twice! The pizza is great, thin crust and made in a wood-fired oven so the flavors are amazing! The salads and appetizers were delicious, and the live music was an added bonus. The owners and staff go out of their way to make you happy, and... More

Papi and his staff make excellent pizza and past dishes with just the right amount of unique ingredients and care. Try the lobster pasta. Excellent taste with just the right amounts and lobster, olive oil, and sea brine. The brine and wine reduction makes the dish. On Tuesdays enjoy the local home band which seems to have a very loyal... More
