On fashionable 5th avenue, a nice patio, and I had scaloppini marsala very nice. Great view of people waling past, and a nice place to stop and rest for a beer if you are walking the full length of 5th avenue.

We went to Playa to meet up with a family member and we're on our way to a different restaurant when we stumbled upon this place. They had a great table available for the 6 of us. The calamari was amazing. The best we had on our 2-week trip. I would definite go back just for the calamari. The wine... More

This is the second time my sister and I have eaten at this place, so returned because of its wonderful food and service. Our waiter is always Mario who greets us with a smile. We had a good warm bread with this white sauce and its was so tasteful. I had a homemade pasta with shrimp. Ice cold beer with... More

This is the second time I eat at this restaurant and it was fantastic both times. Service was good the first time with Mario that we waited for him to serve us again. The food was fixed just perfect and very tasty, the bread was fresh and the beer was very cold. I will definitely eat at this restaurant again.

A true disappointment. The look was so inviting... but the substance very disappointing. My linguini with aragosta/ lobster were drowned in a tomato sauce which took over the delicate flavor of the lobster (I wish I had known that! Why tomato sauce with aragosta???). The lobster was tough, almost chewy. The Sicilian style gnocchi my husband took were also nothing... More

Terrible 'home' made pasta and other not clearly identifiable flavors. Pizzas are gummy not yummy. Don't waist your money here.

My husband and I came across this restaurant one evening and it was a great find . Really nice homemade warm rolls whilst you are waiting for your mains and the fillet steak was amazing would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Great choice in Playa strip for Italian. We are 2 families with young kids, total of 7. All pasta dishes, calamari starter and grilled shrimp with mash potatoes were excellent. The service is attentive. Standard 15% is added to the bill.

I gave this restaurant a 5 star, but only compared to others in the area. Compared to Toronto or NYC it would be a 4. We had a great dinner on the street, enjoying pasta, pizza and wine. The service was the best and most trained we experienced in 2 weeks in PDC. Actually I would rate this the best... More

An hour waiting for a table? Antonieta the so-called hostess made it miserable. This makes you wonder why argentinians keep getting up-front positions in the mexican culinary industry. Food was just Ok, with incredible slow service. We really missed the opportunity of getting to know another place to eat in Playa. Next time we will try La Roca, which seems... More
