“A Great Find in Playa Del Carmen!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012

My husband and I just returned from 6 nights in Playa Del Carmen...our first trip there! It was our last night and we were looking for something special, away from the hustle and bustle of 5th Avenue, and kind of had our hearts set on Italian food. So we just started walking and checking out the side streets for something we might not have seen on our dozens of strolls down 5th Avenue during the week. Luna Rossa caught our eye, just a few steps off the main street so we walked over for a closer look. What a great find! We were met at the entrance by Edmundo, who turned out to be our waiter for the evening. He was so kind and helpful as we made our dinner selections. The pastas are all homemade and we had a very nice, very affordable meal! Edmundo prepared a wonderful salad right at our table. For our main course, my husband had a shrimp fettuccine dish and I had ravioli with a shrimp and creamy sauce. It was the best dinner we had all week. The atmosphere was perfect, the food was great! Don't miss this place!

“Charming restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

This is just off %th and next to a Tequilla shop. We started by sharing the beef carpaccio which was excellent and a good portion for sharing. We then split a pizza and shared a bottle of wine. A lovely evening meal with excellent service Everything was fresh and well presented.

The best food in town, and the price is better. A great option if you are looking for a nice Italian meal... by the way don't forget to try the excellent thin crust pizza.

“relaxed and tasty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

We happened upon this place by accident, stopped in for a bite, and were pleasantly surprised. We just had spaghetti and pizza, nothing fancy. Food was above average, prices were great (for being in the tourist district), service was outstanding, and it was nice to go less than a block from 5th ave and feel like we were away fom the crowd. A great place for a nice casual meal at a good price.
