THE best pizza in Merida. I have tried them all and this is absolutely my favorite! You may go elsewhere for music, ambiance,etc. But if you are looking for authentic pizza this is it!

First of all - I'm a pizza fanatic. It's rare for me to go a week without having pizza at least 1-2 times. Rafaello's has the best pizza in Merida, and Ive tried them all. Their four cheese pizza is just perfect. The crust comes out perfect from that stone oven and compliments all the flavors nicely. However, the place... More

Rafaello's was recommended to us as a good option for pizza...so we tried it out. We could not have been any happier with the outcome. The pizza was probably the best I have ever had...and I have had a lot of pizza. The prices were good, the service was great, and the food was delicious. Oh, and I should mention... More

You will miss it if your not paying attention, They have outside dining in the back, which I recommend, you can watch the guy make your pizza. If I remember correctly Fernando was our waiter, and he was excellent, very fast service. The bill was 390 pesos which about 19 USD at this time {20 pesos to the dollar}. Two... More

Rafaellos is a great little restaurant in the Centro area of Merida. The staff is welcoming and efficient. We ordered pizza from a huge selection and watched the chef prepare it and bake it in the wood-fired oven. Delicious! There is indoor and outdoor seating. Prices are very reasonable. One pizza serves two moderately hungry people. This is an Italian... More

Thin crust pizza at it's best. No frills, just good pizza. Good sauce and very good cheese. Grab a beer or have some wine.

Great wood fire-style pizza, fantastic wine! It was also the only reasonably priced wine we have seen in Mexico. This place is way quieter than it should be, given the location and quality.

We go here every time we come to town. The little outdoor area near the wood burning stove is quaint. I love it that there are very nice options for toppings and that you can have a glass of wine with your pizza. The sauce is very flavorful.
