But any plate, seriuosly any pasta you choose is going to be delightful!, and now that they moved to the laggon side... More

We have previously dined at Cenacolo when they were in their previous location at Kukulcan Plaza. The new location with seating along the lagoon is absolutely breathtaking with a wonderful cosmopolitan flair. We enjoyed a table right along the water. For our last evening in Cancun, we were looking for a relaxed atmosphere with excellent food and service. Cenacolo exceeded... More

This is the new location, as it was previously in Luxury Mall. Fairly quiet, even though unable to make reservation in advance. Walked in and was able to get table yor two. Food was good, but suck waitstaff made me think, I too, would get sick.

We have heard very go things about this restaurant. When we arrived it took a few minutes to be seated. The waiter was ok. They had no kids meal and wanted to charge me full price for a meal. The food was very good because the pasta is homemade. The service was extremely slow. We were there over 2 hours.... More

When you finally hit your limit of eating Mexican / regional Latin cuisine, Cenacolo is an ideal dining experience. The pasta is amazing and the appetizers are ridonkulously great. DO NOT MISS THE SHRIMP STUFFED CALAMARI - IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE !!! Avoid penne with crab as you will endure 20 messy minutes of cracking the crab yourself. The... More

Two years ago we vacationed in Cancun and ate Italian food in a restaurant adjacent to a mall that was very good. This visit it was no longer there, thinking it was out of business. However, until I began to write this review I did not realize that Cenacolo was the restaurant we ate in 2 years ago and now... More

The meal we had at Cenacolo was our favourite of the trip. While we weren't expecting to eat Italian while on a trip to Mexico, it was recommended by our concierge. We were at the Ritz Carlton, and it was an easy walk. Our table was outside, and we had a beautiful view of the lagoon. Our servers were very... More

Our first time at this restaurant. Fresh pasta - Green hats, minestrone, pasta in cheese wheel (don't know how else to describe)! All were excellent. We did not like the bottle of wine we ordered (we never turn away a bottle of wine) - it was harsh. The sommelier came by, we ordered another - no muss, no fuss. Second... More
