This little Italian restaurant is a hidden gem in Playa. A friend recommended it and we were not disappointed. A block off 5th avenue and well worth the short walk... Service was great and the pizza was very good. Who knew you could get great pizza in Mexico!

This is our 7th year in Playa and La Famiglia is still our favorite restaurant. Giuseppe greets us like long lost friends---and continues to serve delicious food while providing great service. Their grouper is the best!

After eating here, I can't quite believe the brilliant reviews this Italian restaurant has got. I have eaten far better and more authentic Italian food for a much better price. I love fresh pasta, but mine was coated in so much cream that it stuck together and may as well have been from a packet. The pizza was massive but... More

While not gourmet this restaurant presents some of the best Italian food I have had in a while. Try the homemade pasta with a bolognese sauce and you can't go wrong. Think simple, but think simply good.

Been living in Playa many years, this is still the coziest coolest Italian place in town. Great pizza, homemade pasta and sauces, etc. Owned and run by Italians! Service and drinks are awesome too...overall good vibes and great value. Recommend!

Service was good and friendly. Pizza was excellent - had a half and a half - and was delicious.Pasta very tasty. Great overall value. Slightly more expensive than the equivalent on the strip but far better quality and experience. Do recommend booking in advance as gets busy at night.

I want to give this cozy italian spot 5 stars. The food deserves it, as do the drinks and service. However, we were literally sweating at the bar while we ate, and this wasn't during the hot part of the day. The kitchen obviously creates a lot of heat, and it just needs to be offset by significant air conditioning,... More

Service was very good, and the food was quite enjoyable. Though we found the cost somewhat unjustified in our opinion. Two drinks, one salad, and one pizza came in just under 1000 pesos, tip excluded. No fault of the staff of course. However there are certainly better meals, and deals to be had in the area.
