“Lobster Lasagna, need I say more?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I've been living in Playa for some years and I'm lucky enough to be friend whit the couple that runs this fine restaurant.
La Trattoria is italian flavour at its best, trust me. And if you are lucky enough, Inna, the cook,might have prepared some Lobster Lasagna fro today's menu : )

“good Italian food in Mexico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

We were directed to La Trattoria by a waitress at another restaurant who told us it was the best Italian food in Playa. The restaurant is very simple but the food was very good. Prices were excellent for the area (they are in the tourist zone) - about $16 for linguini and clams, $11 for the lasagne special with a glass of wine and under $20 for a rib-eye steak which was the most expensive menu item.
The owner is front and center greeting customers and making them feel welcome.
We highly recommend this as a place to eat in Playa.
