The environment is welcoming and elegantly rustic. The Italian waiter, trilingual, extremely well-mannered and kind and served us wonderfully. As natives of Venice we are very demanding, but the homemade tagliatelle and gnocchi were simple and yet spectacular. The roast beef appetizer was also delicious. The place is a little pricey for the cost of living in Mexico, but it... More

I visited already many pizza places in Playa. But this is one of the best original italian pizzas I had so far. Nice menu, nice little restaurant. Definitely will visit this place again. Because the kitchen had a problem, there were no pasta dishes available. So I will try them on my next visit, but for sure, with a pizza.... More

Had a fantastic piece of tuna, it was gigantic- though maybe a bit to 'blackened' for me, but still I can forgive that when the rest of it was perfect. My hubby had a very nice pasta dish, with the traditional Bolognese sauce- fresh and light. Grazie y Gracias for the great food!

Incredibly good Italian food, the service was honestly the best I've experienced in a restaurant. I really enjoyed the location just off of 5th avenue..just away from the crowds for a more intimate setting. Highly recommended!

Excellent Italian spot in the center of Playa del Carmen. Owner and staff were very friendly and welcoming. All from Italy. Ordered a pizza for my daughter and a calzone for my son. Both were excellent. My wife had the Gnocchi and shrimp and I had the Fettuccine Carbonara. Both were excellent as well. Fettuccine was home made. We ended... More

Absolutely delicious, fresh Italian food! Chef is from Naples, Italy. Started with Arugula Salad and, also, Octopus Salad. Next, Linguine with cherry tomatoes and basil in red sauce and, also, Veal Scallopini with mushrooms. We left nothing on our plates! Napoleon-style oven for pizzas as well as tasty bread we dipped in olive oil and balsamic. A must have if... More

You walk into this nice open air restaurant and you immediately smell the stone brick oven with the beautiful pizzas that come out of it. Then you sit down to discover nice dishes especially the starters and a few first courses, then you get to try the pizza and just fall in love, as it is realistically the best pizza... More
