“The place to be on Saturday night”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

For Mahahual, this is the place to be on a Saturday night. It's a scene of locals, expats, and gringos mixing it up over cold beers and good pizza. Its a short walk from downtown Mahahual. Bring bug spray in the wet season. Excellent service as well!

“Exuberant and fresh!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We arrived in Mahauhal in the off season and discovered Pizza Papi on the advice of a young diving instructor. The owner, Michael (?) is vibrant and wonderfully welcoming. The complimentary bruschetta is on delicious homemade bread. He instantly customized our pizza (my partner is vegetarian, I'm not), and our salad was crunchy and fresh. The pizza crust was thin and baked to perfection. Great service, fresh, excellent food. We will be back.

“Great pizza dough bun!! People smoking while you eat :(”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Thin crust , very well cooked on a brick oven . The service was great by the owner . Sadly there was people smoking inside while we were eating and that's messed up . The shrimp of the "pizza papi" has to be first sautéed , because the time in the oven was not enough to fully cook the shrimp. Try no to order sausage . Wasn't pretty good . Cold beers and a pretty good strawberry daiquiri.

Michele (who is Italian) and Alejandra are the nicest people ever, and the pizzas are absolutely delicious. You won't regret this.

“Delicious pizza and fun atmosphere”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

We knew some members of the band that played on Friday night, so we all went and watched and enjoyed the music and pizza. It was a fun atmosphere both inside and out.
