“BEST PIZZA ON HOLBOX”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

If yopu want REAL ITALIAN Pizza, THIS IS, the place. THin Crust Smoothered with toppings. Great FAMILY Run place Owner & Wife there ALWAYS! The Lobster Pizza far outshines the Big Name in Town on the square where they use Manchego Cheese, NOT REAL MOZZARELLA like Cariocas. Wine Selection good. Right on the street to watch the people walk by on their way to town. DONT miss this !!! Oh YEA! PASTA EXCELLENT!

“My grandchildren love the pizzas, I love the salchicha italiana.”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Their pizzas are paper thin, no sauce, but full of flavor. The lobster pizza actually has the lobster tails on the pizza, not just pieces. I love the pasta and Italian sausage. Service is great, out door seating is best and you get to see and talk with everyone who is going into town. Drinks are good, wine selection is very acceptable and good, prices are decent. If you like coccus and mushrooms, that is a real treat, takes a little more time, but my wife and I normally split a salad and the coccus, for it is pretty well served. Enjoy a good meal, Adriano and Natalia will ensure that you have enjoyed their restaurant and food.

“Italian Pizza”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

You summed it up, good real pizza, at a good price, we ate here like 3 times in 3 days (10days on the island). The wine deal at the time was great. Really enjoyed it if yourve had your fair share of tacos. Enjoy

“Best Pizza We Have Ever Had”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

This is some of the best pizza we have ever had and we have had a lot of pizza. We were surprised that we could make that statement about a pizza place on a remote Mexican island. While on the island, we at at Los Peleones, El Chapulim, Viva Zapata, and La Parrilla Juan. Those are all a little more upscale than this place. They are all a little more expensive and haute cuisine. This is just a PERFECT pizza, italian place. No special drinks, just great pizza and pasta. It is run by a husband and wife. Their two little girls are also always present. They do their best to make you feel at home. The service is wonderful. This is the only place we ate at twice during our week stay. The lobster pizza was great as was the ham and pineapple. We also had the arrabula pasta, which was perfectly al dente, spicy and garlicy. It is slightly off the beaten path, but do yourself a favor and EAT HERE !!!

“HANDS DOWN the best Pizza on Isla Holbox!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

I've lived on Holbox for 13 years and have obviously tried ALL the Pizza offerings on Holbox. Cariocas is the BEST! Thin Crust, Real Mozarella Cheese, Generous toppings, & Great prices.

Some of the other Pizza Joints on Holbox are living on their reputations, not naming any names.

The Owners of Cariocas are REAL ITALIANS. Also to mention their Salads & Pastas are SUPER Good as well. IF, you like eating Pizza& not alot of Dough THIS IS the place. Staff helpful & friendly! Their nightly Specials are worth checking out. GO, you'll be hooked!
