After eating here, I can't quite believe the brilliant reviews this Italian restaurant has got. I have eaten far better and more authentic Italian food for a much better price. I love fresh pasta, but mine was coated in so much cream that it stuck together and may as well have been from a packet. The pizza was massive but... More

While not gourmet this restaurant presents some of the best Italian food I have had in a while. Try the homemade pasta with a bolognese sauce and you can't go wrong. Think simple, but think simply good.

Been living in Playa many years, this is still the coziest coolest Italian place in town. Great pizza, homemade pasta and sauces, etc. Owned and run by Italians! Service and drinks are awesome too...overall good vibes and great value. Recommend!

I believe they hand make the pastas and it shows. Excellent lasagne.The pizzas looked really good, too.

Service was good and friendly. Pizza was excellent - had a half and a half - and was delicious.Pasta very tasty. Great overall value. Slightly more expensive than the equivalent on the strip but far better quality and experience. Do recommend booking in advance as gets busy at night.

I want to give this cozy italian spot 5 stars. The food deserves it, as do the drinks and service. However, we were literally sweating at the bar while we ate, and this wasn't during the hot part of the day. The kitchen obviously creates a lot of heat, and it just needs to be offset by significant air conditioning,... More

Service was very good, and the food was quite enjoyable. Though we found the cost somewhat unjustified in our opinion. Two drinks, one salad, and one pizza came in just under 1000 pesos, tip excluded. No fault of the staff of course. However there are certainly better meals, and deals to be had in the area.

Staff was, as they say friendly. As an Italian from New Jersey, food was only average and expensive. Arugula salad was only ok. Mushroom bruschetta they took off bill, had no flavor and arrived late, with our meal. Pasta by itself was good, light, but sauces lacked flavor. Did not care for my lasagna...where was the ricotta? Pass this one... More

We have been coming to the area for several years and we just found this place from a recommendation on the PDC forum. It was absolutely delicious. Handmade pastas, brick oven pizzas, salads and more. It's a small place so come early or make a reservation. On top of the food- the service was outstanding. We were with two small... More
