Description: Rolandi¹s Restaurant Bar & Pizzeria As you enter the restaurant you can sense the romantic, old world aromas emanating from the kitchen and the wood fired oven. The inside dining room is air conditioned, and then the view expands from the waterfront terrace to the beautiful Caribbean. A relaxing view from the covered terrace offers gorgeous sunsets and dive boats gently crossing the seascape. The terrace bar is a great place to meet people day or night. Serving your favorite cocktail and premium liquors with an incredible view and relaxing ambiance. An extensive Italian menu, inspired with a passion for taste, includes local seafood, veal, pasta and of course, wood fired pizza. All the seafood is prepared fresh with fresh herbs and high quality olive oil. Always ask for the catch of the day and pairing it with the right wine is easy. The wine selection is excellent and reasonably priced. The menu makes you want to come back for more. Rolandi¹s looks and feels very upscale but the prices say otherwise. The food is amazing. The location is ideal with a fantastic view and a friendly staff. This is a beautiful spot to celebrate life and eat with a loved one.

“Great Subset View but watch the Oil and Peppers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

The bread they serve with a pepper and olive oil. It is very spice. We had fish carpaccio (good but small) and the Lobster Calzone. The staff was attentive (best so far).

“One of the best restaurants in Cozumel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

The food is always excellent - literally, I've eaten at Rolandi's more times than I can count and the food is great! The view is unbelievable! I would have gladly given Rolandi's a five star rating, but the only downside is that the waitstaff can be (quite) a bit pushy and surly.

“Excellent pizza and view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2014

We went to Rolandi's on the recommendation from one of the front desk ladies at our hotel and were not disappointed.
Rolandi's is right next door to Jimmy Buffets bar, this restaurant is right on the water and if we had know we would have got there before dark to take in the view, was still nice eating dinner and listening to the waves rolling in.
We both had pizza which was very good. We also had a pop and a glass of wine and the bill was only $34 which we thought was great value for money.
We would certainly return to this restaurant but maybe a little earlier to take in the view.
Enjoy.

“WAY MORE THAN A PIZZERIA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

I ate at Rolandis the first time about 4 years ago. The food was good and very reasonable considering the location and view. At the time it was good but not great compared to some other local favorites. Fast forward to Mar 2014.
We went for a casual dinner with a great setting and good but reasonable food, and got so much more. The hostess quickly sat us right on the water which is beautiful and great for pictures. The waiter was spot on and provided the type of service one expects when paying $100 dollars a plate but was pleasantly surprising at UNDER $100.00 a couple.
The garlic bread was a little a chewy but boyfriend loved the spicey dipping sauce.
The salads were very good. Dinner was awesome. I had the veal and he ordered a steak. Both had destinct but not overpowering flavirs and we kept trading bites as I didnt know which I liked more.
The deserts were simple but good. The mojitos were good as well. The do not hound you or rush you and allow you to quietly enjoy the atmosphere waiting for you to request the check instead.
Nice spot for a relaxing meal with expectional food. We went back in our last night instead of hitting another local favorite.
