We stopped here to get some 'za and it was amazing! My husband and I split both a plain cheese pizza and a pepperoni. Our friend gave us a bite of his lobster pizza, delicious. Their tiramisu is amazing!

This is a very interesting place as far as the restaurant goes, it is like two restaurants in one. You can enter from the street off of the main square into what looks like a simple Italian restaurant or on the other side which is on the beach where you have the choice of sitting under a covered area with tables or choose a table right on the beach where you can let your feet enjoy the sand. In between these two spaces is a great outdoor bar on the beach always playing great music where you can sit on swings at the bar. The bar is a great place to stop for a great drink in the afternoon or evening and enjoy the sunset and the music. Well my girlfriend and I choose to enjoy our pizza out on the beach at sunset which was amazing. We ordered the well talked about lobster pizza. Being a pizza lover and never passing up an opportunity to pass up a slice where ever I am I can say I have never come across a lobster pizza. The pizza is brought out to your table in a pizza box, and when you open the box and there in front of you lies a whole lobster shell and all cut up and spread around the pie. If you are not familiar with lobster in southern waters they do not have claws so most of the lobster meat is in the tail. So to properly enjoy this pizza is to remove the shells from the the top of the pie and then remove the lobster meat and spread it over your pie, a little bit of work but worth it when you bite into your first slice. A real authentic thin crust pizza, great sauce, cheese and excellent tasting crust along with the sweet lobster meat. Very friendly service and reasonably priced. They have a pizza menu as well as a regular menu in which to choose from. A real fun experience in a beautiful setting.

If you want pizza this is the place on the island. The owner Adriano is from Naples and makes wonderfully tasting pizza's. We had a Margarita and a Lobster Pizza which were both outstanding. If you dine outside you are actually sitting at tables in the street. Watch the tourist and locals walk or drive by. Good selection of beer and wines also.

Yes, finally a great lobster pizza. The real Italian flavor of garlic and parsley and tails well cocked, soft and juicy. The dough is crusty and the cheese is real mozzarella that goes perfect with Mediterranean taste. I highly recommend this pizza as a very good one in the all Yucatan peninsula.

THere are a number of Pizza offerings on Holbox these days. Some on living on Past reputation & laurels, others, trying to CASH IN on the $$$.

NONE of the others COME CLOSE to this Family run Pizzaria run by a wonderful Italian Family.

REAL THIN CRUST....REAL MOZZARELLA, not the cheap Mexican Manchego used by others. Luscious ingredients Tasty SAuce, Great Toppings including LOBSTER.....Far better than the eatery on the park Edelin.....

Pastas a light & tasty........Small & intimate Watch the World go by & Savor every bite! DONT MISS THIS if you're on Holbox!
