.. the best Italian food in Mazunte. These are the highest prices in Mazunte but food is very very good. Plus quality pizza to eat there or take away. Well worth a visit - arrive early or book or sit on the wall to queue watching the world go by.

the langostina pasta was overpriced-hardly any lobster there and had to pay for parmesean to flavor it....60 pesos for 3 pieces of bruschetta also, and a band of bad musicians playing ruined our experience

I went to this restaurant for breakfast 3 times when I stayed in Mazunte. The food was excellent. It was served to me piping hot and fresh with a smile. The coffee was also great. I didn´t go there for dinner because I´m not a big fan of Italian cuisine; however, if you want a nice, reasonably priced place to... More
