“Authentic Italian in cozumel? Believe it!”
Reviewed May 14, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I didn't expect much when we came after we went to guidos earlier in the week. We both love Italian and we're very suprised! Amazing! I had the gnocchi which was homemade and the sauce was so fresh and light! Very romantic if you get to sit on the upstairs patio.

“Delicious”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We had the lobster and the lion fish gnocchi. Both were delicious and the tiramisu was to die for. The owner is from Rome and he is also the chef and is very nice and came and chatted with us. The staff was very knowledgeable and was always there when you needed anything. I would definitely come back here next time we are in Cozumel.

“Best italian food we had in a long time!”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

The staff was very friendly and explained the different dishes on the menu. We ordered two italian pasta dishes - they both were out of this world! Ask for a taste of lion fish and that was the surprise of the evening! It was great tasting - we have to go back and I will order the lion fish for my meal!
The deserts were delicious! All in all it was a wonderful experience!

“delicious and authentic Italian”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

We had dinner on the balcony and were made to feel like family by the waitstaff. The prices are right and the food was fantastic! Homemade pasta and deserts made in-house from family recipes. The chef came out from the kitchen to talk to us about our dinner. Go there!
