That was a truely excellent pasta meal. Four very satisfied diners had an excellent experience. That is a meal I could eat all over again. Pasta was cooked perfectly, entrees were flavoursome. Final price was $20pp I recommend this gem to anyone!

Greatest Italian restaurant in downtown Cancún, the food is really home cooking, for a small place, prices are decent, run by owner.

Great service and amazing food. Definitely going back. We went there with my family of 5 and had a wonderful meal and the prices are so much better compared to the hotel zone.

I live very close by and am a regular at this great Italian restaurant. What's not to like? Great location, service, food, wine and... The martinis! Today we had their amazing lasagne and tiramisu... To die for!

This is a very small place with poor decorations. The A/C did not seem to work since it was way too hot. I tried to order two different types of beer they offer but was told that they ran out. The pizza was too crusty and the pasta was too spicy. I would not go again.

We went here in February. No reservations and just walked in with a group of 5. The food was good and we really enjoyed the friendly quaint atmosphere. We will go and check out other spots around town, but we have no regrets with this restaurant.
