“Don't miss this !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Stumbled on the sign pointing out this wee treasure as we strolled along 5th Avenue.It's on the beach side next to an art shop/gallery.Restaurant is in a small quiet courtyard off the main street. Unlike the majority of restaurants in town we were allowed to look at the menu in peace without being hassled to come in. The owner simply said"Just to let you know -we are closed on Tuesdays" then walked away-Deffinate brownie points there as far as we were concerned!
Having already eaten at the hotel we were not looking to eat that night-just looking for some options to escape the "all inclusive" another night. In fact the restaurant was,so good we went twice.
Food was excellent -one of the best Italian meals I have ever had and service was faultless. Wine was great and not overpriced.
If you are in Playa Carmen do not miss this wonderful restaurant. It's a real gem !

“Best restaurante in Playa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Withouth any doubt, this is a hidden treasure. Excellent food and terrific service by the owners. You can´t ask for more. We have been going once a year since 2008 during our annual week in Playa del Carmen. Starting last December, we go twice. It´s worth it!

“For Pasta Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We love the homemade, authentic pasta from here! The calamari is our favorite starter and the shrimp fettuccine is great and they give you a large portion.

“Excellent Italian food & atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We stayed 12 days in Mexico. Last day we found Casa Mediterranea on 5th Aven. in Playa del Carmen. Best food during our 12 day stay, best ambiance, best food and a great location. Real Italian owners and waiters make the whole picture complete. Next time, we'll go there again.
