Where are the words? This is the finest Italian food I have ever tasted. I eat here about two or three times a month and never disappointed. This is truly authentic Italiano and I don't mean Americanized Italian. It's a semi buffet style eatery. When you walk in the days selections are on a counter and you pick your meal.... More

I really, really enjoyed my meal here. A local recommended it to me or I never would have found it. They don't really have a menu it's just whatever she's making today. Quite a few things to choose from though. Delicious and very affordable. I had the pork leg, it was great. Beverage, soup, salad, garlic toast, (big) main course,... More

This trip is the first for me visiting La Cucina Italianate, but it will be a regular for sure. On the first visit, I had excellent chicken parmigiana with soup, salad, bread and pasta. We treated ourselves to sublime key lime pie and tivrimasou. On the second visit, I chose the lobster Alfredo which was also outstanding with creamy, lemony... More

Dine in the owners home, welcoming and immaculate destination. You will have a hard time deciding what to order! Your choice includes soup, salad, an entree, drink & dessert! All for about 9 US dollars. Delicious home cooked food. I loved the lobster with pasta. Don't miss this great place.

Somewhat off the beaten path, although google to us right to it. I had the Maui-Maui while the wife had the filet migon. Very good food, upscale, and a little pricey but worth the trip!

This treasure of a restaurant is tucked away off the beaten path and missed by most tourists but it's a local favourite especially popular for it's Valentines Special. The chefs are long time Cozumeleñas - a mother & daughter of Italian descent. I always have a tough time selecting only one entree, or getting my husband to share so I... More

This place is amazing. There were several menu choices on display to choose from. Soup and salad. The salad had the best raspberry vinaigrette I've ever tasted. Service was impeccable. I would go there again just for the tiramisu.

Many restaurants come and go on Cozumel, and many have been here for many years. Cocina Italiana is one that has been here for years and has never lost its quality and charm. Tucked away off the main drag of Avenida Melgar in a private residence, there is a wonderful outdoor patio surrounded by trees and green vegetation (also a... More

This is by far the best Italian food you will ever try! My husband doesn't normally like Italian food, but every time we go to Cozumel, he insists on eating here. The spinach stuffed chicken is my favorite, but the hubby tries something new every time and he is always happy with his choice. The tiramisu is a MUST-TRY! And... More

Daily buffet offers a variety of freshly made dishes to choose from! Courtyard dining available and very reasonably priced entrees! Very friendly staff! We will go back and try to save room for the Tiramisu we keep hearing about!
