“Like being back in Italy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Our group of eight had a delightful authentic Italian meal that included complementary bruschetta, seafood pasta (spaghetti allo scoglio) and the seafood grill. The food was delicious! We thought we were back in Italy. The service was attentive and most helpful in handling the needs of a child with food allergies. We so enjoyed our meal and plan to return. As with other small local restaurants, only cash is accepted.

“Authente Italian food, hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

It is a very nice little cafe restaurant, food reminds me of what I had in Italy. Surprise hidden gem next to the beach, not as crowed as the ones on 5th ave. and not as overpriced as the ones on 5th ave.
the couple are Italian expats, very nice services.

“Outstanding small Italian island in Playa del carmen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I'm Italian myself and I was there with other 2 Italian friends.
in the first place we were a bit skeptics, since it was a tourist guide sending us there; but after we seat and we tasted out meal -seafood spaghetti (spaghetti allo scoglio)- we definitely changed our mind!
the food was great, the staff was really nice and the atmosphere was excellent, we were 50 meters away from the sea.
For our last night in Playa, we went back there, we had an Argentinian beef steak with fresh grilled vegetable...just delicious.
we were so much in love with the place that we went back there for a quick espresso also the same day of our departure! lol
if you pass by, definitely stop there it is worth it.
