This is a nice little restaurant, one road back from 5th Avenue. It is spread over two floors, and it is open, light and airy.
The pizzas are great, as are the pasta dishes. The trio of Gnocchi, Lasagne and Ravioli was especially rich and tasty.
Service was excellent, and all dishes very reasonably priced.
Could wholeheartedly recommend

La Famigula is an Italian restaurant located one block off of 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen and it is definitely worth a stop. The restaurant is attractive, two story, open to Calle 10 on both floors and has a small bar on the first floor. The restaurant has the typical pasta, meat and pizza selections you would expect to find in an Italian restaurant. Portions are just right and pasta's come in a variety of tasty sauces. Main entrees are reasonably priced including the large selection of Pizzas. Price and quality definitely add up to great value here even if your not on a budget.
We took the ferry to Cozumel for a full day of snorkeling and when we got back to Playa we were exhausted. It was easy and convenient to stop at La Famigula and order a delicious pizza and salad to go which we ate heartily on the balcony of the condo we rented.

Authentic italian food, fresh and tasty. Pizzas are massive, thin crust and crispy they can easily be shared by two people. Homemade pasta is also light and filling especially the ravioli. Love the complementary bread and bagnetto dressing when you get seated at your table.
Very good and friendly service thanks to the Italian owner and smiley waitresses

Even if usually I don't like to eat in italian restaurants during my trips, this time I made an exception for this little but full of smells, tastes and colours restaurant. La Famiglia is exactly what you expect: great pizza (probably one of the best I ever tasted), amazing combination of different kind of 'primi piatti' (we have chosen ravioli, lasagne and gnocchi) completely home-made!!! perfect combination quality/price. I already miss it!! My special thanks to Manuel and Peppe and overall to Marcello, I hope to visit you again!!!! Mauro
