It's not often you find delicious food, great drinks and fantastic service. All under the same roof! This was our 3rd visit to LaFamiglia and they are extremely consistent! The wood oven pizza, alfredo, lasagna and more are amazing! We have only been here a week and we left our resort twice to visit LaFamiglia. Try the lasagne, pizza and... More

Maybe it is a mistake to expect an Italian family restaurant in Playa del Carmen. A good facsimile would not be impossible but frankly this is not it. Pizza was not bad and the steak was ok. I do not doubt that the pasta was home made etc. The problem was the lack of flavour. Bland food for the masses... More

On our last night of our trip we decided to have pasta and we are so glad we decided on La Famiglia. It was recommended on the Map Chick maps so we decided to try it. We showed up, and without reservations it would be about an hour wait, but our wonderful host got us a spot at the bar... More

This little Italian restaurant is a hidden gem in Playa. A friend recommended it and we were not disappointed. A block off 5th avenue and well worth the short walk... Service was great and the pizza was very good. Who knew you could get great pizza in Mexico!

This is our 7th year in Playa and La Famiglia is still our favorite restaurant. Giuseppe greets us like long lost friends---and continues to serve delicious food while providing great service. Their grouper is the best!

After eating here, I can't quite believe the brilliant reviews this Italian restaurant has got. I have eaten far better and more authentic Italian food for a much better price. I love fresh pasta, but mine was coated in so much cream that it stuck together and may as well have been from a packet. The pizza was massive but... More

While not gourmet this restaurant presents some of the best Italian food I have had in a while. Try the homemade pasta with a bolognese sauce and you can't go wrong. Think simple, but think simply good.
