Love the pizza at La Famiglia. Big enough to feed four people. Great sauce and their mushroom bruschetta was awesome. Very fresh ingredients. The past looks amazing, we haven't tried it yet. All three visits, we defaulted to the pizza. The service is excellent, very friendly staff. And the manager goes out of his way to accommodate guests. We'll be... More

We waited in line for awhile(45 min) after calling for a reservation....that was my only complaint. The wait was saved by the awesome food and great service. Their pizza was very good but their seafood pasta was to die for. Well done.

We ate at several places in Playa but none could compare to this one. Particularly good was the Alfredo sauce with either the shrimp or chicken. Portions were generous and easily shared between 2 adults. The bread served before the meal was delicious, one in particular having garlic and caramelized onions on top. However the best part of the meal... More

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
