We can’t believe the previous reviews. We shared a pepperoni pizza and a penne carbonara. The pizza base was like really thick cardboard and the pepperoni was more like a thickly cut sausage. The pasta was swimming in oil. It was edible but it wasn’t enjoyable and it was definitely the worst Italian food we’ve ever had.

We tried twice to find this restaurant on 57 and finally realized the "A" refers to a pedestrian plaza between 57 and 59. Lovely quiet location. Nice change of pace from yucatecan food. Very flavorful. Good seafood.

Simplicity as far as decor; a short menu with the classical choices of Italian cuisine but very tasty and refined dishes.
Service polite and smilly, and owners, see that you are satisfied.
GO there without any hesitation

Hands down the best, most reasonably priced food experience in centro. The food is delicious, the service personable, and the atmosphere welcoming. I only wish more people would know about this place so that they could justify being open all of the time. Try the pescados or pastas; you won't be disappointed. Also, the coffee, fresh from Veracruz, is wonderful. If more people kept them busy, I imagine they would get their vintage Italian espresso machine up and running and it'd be even better. I'm always crestfallen to see people eating at the terrible restaurant next door instead of trying one of the truly good places in Merida.
