We went here during our trip in Palenque after reading the good stories on tripadvisor.
It's good we went by taxi because the restaurant is not in the city centre.
The ambiance was great, food was delicious, not expensive at all and the owners of this small restaurant were very nice.

I really wanted to love this restaurant. The location is a bit mysterious, down a dark single lane road that does not look very promising. I felt relieved to see a cute rustic building at the end. The service was a bit confused and some members of my party were served long after the others. The food itself was a good effort, but it is difficult to make good Italian food without proper ingredients. Sadly, there were no quality tomatoes, parmesan cheese or mozzarella. Making do without the basics is tough. The pizza, however, was very pleasant even with the substitution of manchego cheese for mozzarella. My friends and I dined for the next two nights at Las Tinajas, which has amazing Chiapan food. It was the real deal.

Thank fred t

Dear Fred T we did not manage to fully satisfy you anyway thanks in advance for your comments motivate us to continue to try to improve in all aspects.

Obviously in Monte Verde we have Parmesan cheese! "Reggiano and Belgioioso"! it would be like to go to a Mexican restaurant and not find hot sauce! In my opinion, it goes well with all the dishes so you do not necessarily send it to the table unless you ask the customer ...
With pleasure I would like to say some restaurant in the Mexican Caribbean have pizza with imported italian mozzarella for just 300 pesos...
However, I am pleased to know that many Italian customers are satisfied with the quality of Monte Verde.
Yes,definitly, I agree with her: deal is deal; amount is the amount and I would say, quality is quality...

Thanks and we hope to have another opportunity to serve again.
A friendly greeting
Alessandra

Because of what we read on TripAdvisor, we decided to check this place out. And what a pleasant surprise it was: candle lit tables, best pizza and pasta we've had in a long time, salsa music (not too loud), in the midst of the Palenque 'jungle' and really nice and good service. It was a shame we arrived on Christmas Day, and the place was closed, otherwise we would've eaten here twice (only stayed for two days in Palenque). Forget the waterfalls, go eat here! ;-)

Dined at the Monte Verde recently while on a 10 day trip to Chiapas. Monte Verde was by far the best restaurant we encountered during the entire trip. The service, food, wine and atmosphere were all superb. The pasta is home made and and all courses from the salsa to the main course are made from fresh local ingredients and and the prices are very reasonable.. A wonderful experience from the moment we entered until we left extremely satisfied...Go there, you will not be disappointed..The turn off to the restaurant is located about 1.5 kilometers down the road to the archeological site .. You will see a sign on the left hand side of the road; turn left there and go about another 1/2 kilometer down a dirt road and viola...
