One word to describe Alessandro's Cangrejo Azul is spectacular! We happened upon this little gem one night and now visit each week to enjoy fresh, delicious pasta and great ambience. I would highly recommend starting with the zesty bruschetta. The spinach stuffed ravioli bolognese is my favorite. Top it off with delicious tiramisu or cheesecake and a glass of wine...perfect meal!

The staff is great and welcoming. It can get quite busy but there is a sharing table at the front of the restaurant where you can sit and eat with others...great for meeting new people.

We brought friends to Cangrejo Azul who have also been to Italy. They said it was better than anything they had!

Who would have thought you could get such fabulous Italian food in little Mazunte? A really great restaurant. Allesandro is "The Maestro"!

1. If you are in Mazunte, you must eat here
2. if you're lucky enough and it's on the menu, get the octopus
3. thou shalt not leave Mazunte without having tried the fresh pasta here, better yet, the ravioli if available
4. if you think you've had a good cheesecake, think again
5. closes thursdays
