The place was recommended as being run by Italians, but any Italian would have been ashamed by the pasta. It was the blandest seafood pasta we have ever tasted, so bad we just sent it back. The waitress was nice and apologised, but then the...More

We ate here 4-5 times on our 6 day trip to Holbox. They have the best home made pasta. My son LOVED their gnocci so much, he asked the chef for the recipe so I can make it for him at home. The chef is...More

We were the only ones at 6:00pm. The service was good and fast enough; we surely had to ask twice for the salt and the "salsas" (it can happen anywhere). The pizza was good, not excellent, but better that other places on the island. The...More

This charming little place on the square had by far the best pizza! We came multiple times because their pasta and pizza were so good. All made in house. The Lobster pizza, margerita and El Diablo were all wonderful! We loved sitting on the street...More

place is nice and well located, right in the zocalo. Food is good, we had salads and pizza; everything is good except for the service; too slow and you have to ask twice for everything.

If you want poor/indifferent service, ok (but nothing special) food, an obligatory 10% tip added to your bill (which is totally illegal), and a manager with a dreadful client service attitude, then this is the place for you. However, I would recommend going somewhere (anywhere!)...More

We thought this restaurant was great. When you are in need of something other than tacos, this is a very good italian restaurant. It has a good location right on the central square and some of the tables are out a bit, so you get...More
