We had not been to this restaurant since they moved in to this new space outside of the mall. We found the new place very inviting and the people extremely courteous. The food was excellent beyond our expectations. I had spagetti with clams and my wife had lobster pasta. Both were teriffic. I highly recommend either dish.

If you are looking for authentic pasta dishes this is the place. We were a party of 6 and each of us loved our meal. Not always an easy thing to achieve. I can't wait to go back!

We made a last minute decision to stop in at Cenacola's on the way out of the local shopping mall. We were greeted by a hostile hostess who explained how busy the empty restaurant was. Glad that they feel that a reservation is so important. We were able to get a seat and the homemade pastas were outstanding. We had gnocchi, spaghetti and fettucine. Each dish was excellent. Their menu is a bit challenging -- we stuck to things we knew we would like and were impressed. The service was also outstanding. This restaurant was not on our radar -- had not been recommended by our hotel and we were glad we found it. Most importantly, we were not turned away by the hostess because we were so reckless and tried to dine without a reservation.

Cenacolo in the Hotel Zone of Cancun is one of the BEST dining experiences we have encountered in our 13 years living in Cancun!! Our waiter GUSTAVO was wonderful! He spoke perfect English. He was very knowledgeable about the wine and food selection. Speaking of food... AWESOME taste and experience in watching hum prepare our pasta dish at the table in a large bowl of Pecorino cheese! WOW! We will be back soon!
