Great food, great setting

Extensive menu with fresh seafood, great salads and pasta. All outside seating, off the street and under a roof - very quiet and comfortable. Highly recommended!

Based upon the great TA reviews (including many from Mexican locals) we dined here, and had a wonderful time. This restaurant is in a the back of a “mall” building just south of the main town square, and definitely worth the bit of effort to find it. There is a very nice open dining area and an attractive inside bar... More

We were initially skeptical whether an Italian restaurant on Holbox could really be a good idea, but we were completely won over by the quality of the food, the friendly, unobtrusive service, and the lovely, romantic atmosphere provided by tables on a deck under massive arching trees. We arrived at the restaurant by taxi at the proper front entrance, so... More

One of the best restaurants in Holbox. Service is great and quality of Pasta and ravioli is amazing. The lobster ravioli are great but almost all we had was excellent. Prices are high but similar to most touristic places in Holbox with less quality. So this is recommended if a good Italian diner is on your list.

The place is very nice designed and have a sophisticated atmosphere, the service is truly amazing, and the food was very good. The only thing that I didn´t like is that I ordered water, instead of bringing bottled water they bring a glass bottle which they refill (which I am totally OK with it, don´t get me wrong), but when...

Initially we went there as a group of 7, everyone was happy with their food. I absolutely loved my spinach and ricotta ravioli in sage butter, so much so I returned there for our last dinner on the island. The service was also really good.

Although this restaurant is at the back of a shopping center they have a lovely enclosed patio area with large mangrove tree trunks providing the support. The food is quite good, with handmade pasta & local seafood. We also had mango cocktail that was as good as any I've ever had - mango, pj, rum & prosecco in an ice-cold... More

A fantastic meal, and it was nice to talk with the owner, who told us about all the dishes. Everything we had was really good. Great Italian entrees, and the fresh fish carpaccio was great as well.

We had dinner at this beautiful little restaurant with its own patio. It was comfortable and relaxing. The food was really really nice! one minus- the toilet is really really bad for this restaurant. No toilet seat and you need a key to get in. Its a closed off space with TL lights and lots of flies/mosquitos. But apart from... More

The place is at the back of a shopping plaza but they have tables outdoors on a terrace. The place may be the trendiest I were on my trip and the dinner was awesome. The chef I think it is italian, so we ate one of the best meals of the trip. You have to go. Desserts were delicious.
