“Romantic and delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

I meant to write this review sooner - we were there just two weeks ago and it was fabulous from start to finish. Service was impeccable, food was outstanding (tuna carpaccio was the best!) and the atmosphere was so lovely and romantic! We can't wait to go back again on our next trip. Thank. You Maria and Mauricio.

“12 YEARS LATER”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

Still THE BEST food in PLAYA. I can no longer call it a hidden gem, when so many people know of this fine establishment. Their TAGLIATA, a thinly sliced seared Filet Mignon drizzled with hot rosemary accented olive oil is to be held high amongst the best dishes being served today, anywhere. I bow to the Kitchen Staff, Mary, Maurizio, Luca & Lucas for serving me such outstanding dinners over the last 12 years.

“Fabulous Italian food makes a good change; very pretty setting in a courtyard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

We were 8 of us and ordered 5 different entrees. Each one of them was delicious! The service was very good. We even got complimentary bruschetta! It was a great change from all the Mexican food we had been having but even apart from that, the food was very good. The portions were big for some of us, so we could have easily shared. The little courtyard the restaurant is in is very charming; the tables are all outdoors. There is a art and sculpture shop/gallery in that courtyard too and it added to the atmosphere to be surrounded with interesting sculptures and paintings.

“Great Food & Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

Our daughter & son-in-law recommended this little Italian restaurant since they had dined there several years ago on their trip. It's located down a small alley and we were their first customers of the evening - so had excellent service. Our gnocchi and Ravioli was tasty and hot; good portion size; also great bread!
