We walked by this place 100's of times, going to 5th ave. Stopped one day around 6 pm and had dinner. Clean, good food, good service. we live here so read bad reviews with care.

Visited this pizzeria during our stay along the coast. The service was good and the pizzas we had were very well made and tasty. Also the wine and beer we had were very good and reasonable priced. It also had a buzzy atmosphere.

House wine was very poor. The pasta was disappointing compared to many other great spots in playa. Service was fine. Decor and ambiance is really nice.

Great Italian restaurant for a good price. We ate there a few times as it was only a couple blocks from our hotel. We tried the bruschetta, onion soup, peppperoni and margherita pizzas. All the food was amazing. Our server Ivan was awesome. Very friendly and made dinner fun. Great place overall.

The service was top notch and the prices were really really reasonable compared to 5th avenue in Playa. The wood oven pizza is also very authentic. They have an extensive menu to satisfy everyones needs. I would highly recommend eating... More

We enjoyed the margarita pizza! We also shared a pasta dish with seafood. It was good and prices were very reasonable. It's not fancy but service was amazing! We would come back. And we liked that it's not on 5th avenue.
