We have been traveling to Cancun at least a couple of times a year for the last decade. This past year we took my mom who was celebrating her 80th birthday.This restaurant is one of our favorites. Always clean with impeccable service, great food, and excellent wines. The view inside or out is great.

This restaurant has a great location overlooking the lagoon and the multi-level layout is great. It was quiet when my wife and I visited but service was poor, possibly because we had at least 5 waiters. An example: I ordered one fettucini dish and received a different one. My replacement was so salty if proved almost inedible. My wife's dessert (almond cake) was very generous but had a strange texture and little flavour. My affogato was more like a coffee/Bailey's float than what I expected (and yes, I have eaten affogato before). The atmosphere is nice, but it's not worth suffering for the poor quality of food.

This was fabulous foods and I could honestly say the food was as good as the food I have eaten in Italy. The atmosphere was fabulous and great view of the lagoon. Love this place and had a great experience.

We were able to walk in without a reservation for dinner, and get a table with a beautiful view of the bay. The waiters were attentive, and the owner came by to check on us. The food was delicious, I had a salad with the house dressing and the rest of my family had pasta. They offer a regular portion, which is enough for 2 of us to share, or smaller half portions of pasta. It was reasonably priced and a very relaxing atmosphere.

I go to Cancun for several months every winter and a trip wouldn't be complete without several trips to this restaurant. I try different things every time I am there and can't pick a favourite meal as every thing has always been great. The location over looking the lagoon is fantastic and the service is superb. Will see them again this winter.
