This was a nice surprice for us when we were looking for a good lunch. The nice couple from Verona served an excellent pasta (tagliatelle) dish with lot´s of king prawns and a delicious tomato-sauce. We´re going back tomorrow! Good value for the money spent. 25 meters form the beach makes it an easy choice for us. Recommended!

Home made pasta, fresh seafood and meats, prepared and cooked to perfection. Flavors do not burst or overwhelm your taste buds, but enhance your sense of taste like never before. Though a hard find, you can walk right past its 5 table outdoor seating area. It is located a little more than 1/2 way down Calle 2 Nord off of... More

While vacationing in Mexico we happened to stumble upon this little place just a few steps from playa del Carmen. The food was fresh and simply delicious. My boyfriend had the mixed seafood and i had fettuccine and shrimp pasta. Probably the best Italian food outside of Italy. The owners are welcoming and super courteous. According to my boyfriend he... More

The location is just by the beach. We sat outside (only choice) in the early night and the temperature was very comfortable with a nice breeze. We... More

Our group of eight had a delightful authentic Italian meal that included complementary bruschetta, seafood pasta (spaghetti allo scoglio) and the seafood grill. The food was delicious! We thought we were back in Italy. The service was attentive and most helpful in handling the needs of a child with food allergies. We so enjoyed our meal and plan to return.... More

It is a very nice little cafe restaurant, food reminds me of what I had in Italy. Surprise hidden gem next to the beach, not as crowed as the ones on 5th ave. and not as overpriced as the ones on 5th ave. the couple are Italian expats, very nice services.
