“THE PLACE HAS CLOSED”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

The place has closed, and now it is called Siddartha. It is best to be visited on slower days. You will get better food.

“Fantastic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Really fresh, delicious homemade pastas and great wine selection. We had heard about the high quality of Italian food in Mazunte and this place did not disappoint. Get the bolognese!

“Just what you need”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

To make it short, I ve been there 3 times in three days. The food is exactly what it should be, fresh pasta, great fish of the day, amazing bruschetta or salad de pulpo.
Service is outstanding. I also love the look of the place, you feel like if you were invited in an Italian house with the chef Alessandro on his own on this open kitchen.
Only disappointment was the dessert, for s the rest it was just perfect !

“The best Italian around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

One word to describe Alessandro's Cangrejo Azul is spectacular! We happened upon this little gem one night and now visit each week to enjoy fresh, delicious pasta and great ambience. I would highly recommend starting with the zesty bruschetta. The spinach stuffed ravioli bolognese is my favorite. Top it off with delicious tiramisu or cheesecake and a glass of wine...perfect meal!

The staff is great and welcoming. It can get quite busy but there is a sharing table at the front of the restaurant where you can sit and eat with others...great for meeting new people.

We brought friends to Cangrejo Azul who have also been to Italy. They said it was better than anything they had!
