Opens at 6 and is a small pizzeria. with half a dozen tables. The service is good and the Pizza comes out fast. Rafaello is the Pizza God of Merida. Fresh toppings and delightful flavors combine to create what pizza is supposed to be! Clean and crispy we devoured two pies and dessert while hoisting some Modelo negras and watching... More

Delicious fresh pizza. This is a nice spot to stop in and eat. Cool pizza oven in the back. You can't go wrong here.

Loved the pizza, although there is an overwhelming number of options. The service was good, but in the summer (really, most of the year), the patio is a little warm.

Without a doubt the best bruschetta I've ever had, and the pizza was heavenly!! Ordered 4 different pizzas among 4 of us, loved them all! The crust is thin, crispy and tasty! Ingredients all fresh and delicious! I still rave about it being the best, and most authentic bruschetta and pizza that I've ever had! I'm not normally a fan... More

If you want a great pizza and don't mind where you eat it, this is the place for you. From the outside Raffaellos looks like building about to be demolished. If you are not scared by the appearances the pizza is great and the service very good. If the owner comes out he might scare you away because he looks... More

I have yet to find pizza in Mérida that comes even close in quality. Overall the ingredients seem of a very high quality: the cheese, the ham, the pepperoni are all very good, which can't be said for other pizzerias that seem to go for a cheap product. I dine here almost every week. I have yet to have any... More

Ordered 1 pizza to go... Waited 35 minutes.... Should have said something when I ordered about the wait. When I questioned why took so long halfway through waiting... Their reply 'asi es' no apology or offer of anything to drink, water.. nothing.

This was a surprise. Although we got the impression they can only bake one pizza at a time, because only one came at a time to our table, when it arrived it was absolutely delicious, thin crust and one of the best in memory. Don't show up much before 7 pm. The first time we found them still closed. happy... More

Run by the "Pizza Nazi" similar to the "Soup Nazi" in TV's Friends but service staff is very good and the food is good. Just don't be scraping your chairs around or trying to move the tables on your own...

When we're in the mood for pizza this is the place. There is a woman who serves us and she never gets our order wrong. She is a whirling dervish and an absolute delight. The wines are good, my husband particularly likes one of the Italian red wines. We ordered a pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms, onions and double the mozzarella.... More
