Having read the reviews I thought we were on to a winner. It didn't live up to the reviews - nice setting off the main drag but I came here for the food. The bruschetta and caprese salad were dull and basic, tuna steak raw (and I mean it must have been waved over the frying pan), pasta gluggy and... More

I highly recommend this little restaurant, you need to look for it, since you need to go into a little alley full of art. Once inside you will.be greeted by a friendly waiter. The food was amazing, they make their own pasta and it tastes great. We all had different dishes and all of them were amazing.

Such a cute place! So much ambiance! The seared tuna was delicious, the tomato brushetta was so tasty and Lucas, our server, made us feel welcome and taken care of.

I was in Playa del Carmen with my wife and our last night here we wanted Italian. We visited Casa Mediterranea and were absolutely blown away. Situated down a small pathway we discovered this hidden gem. From the bruschetta and Frutti Di Mare we shared as appetizers to the Langostine Spaghetti and Fettucine with rabbit sauce as our main courses... More

This little Italian restaurant is a must if in Playa. The food exceptional with service to match. Set in a quite and picturesque courtyard Casa Mediteranea is perfect for a date night. This may sound odd; but the duck pasta dish was out of this world (grower not a shower).

Our hotel (Grand Hyatt) recommended we dine at Casa Mediterranea. It was a Wednesday night and very quiet, we were the only diners for about an hour. The service was exceptional, we had a fantastic waiter and met the owner also. Both wonderful and warm with some great recommendations for food. The food was great not out of this world... More
