Authentic Italian very friendly, great fresh pasta and pizza
Only weak spot was poor wine list

But would totally recommend for a family dinner - great value as well

We had dinner twice this week at La Famiglia in PDC. Location is one block from 5th ave. so very close to where everything is. The ambience and decor are simple but very comforting, specially on the 2nd floor. Everybody greeted us with a smile and an "hola". Our servers were extremely friendly, gracious and informed about the food. We went there for pizza and had the bolognese sauce pizza the first night and the mexican chorizo pizza the second night. Both were excellent, you can't go wrong, but our favorite was the bolognese. We had the primavera salad to start both times and was excellent as well. Even the bread, focaccia and bread sticks with the chimichurri dip that they bring complementary to start were outstanding. The quality shows and this place would be a favorite in any major US city. Highly recommended! Kudos to Gabriel who served us on our second night there!

Our waiter, Gabriel, was excellent! Tonight, he provided better service than what we'd experience in the USA.

The Food: Coming to Playa del Carmen, we didn't expect such delicious, homemade pasta with fresh Italian ingredients. My husband had a spinach ravioli dish and I had the gnocchi. Both were fantastic!

As you read this review, please keep in mind that we left our all inclusive resort, The Royal, for this restaurant based on its reviews. 100 perfect great decision!

Hard to fault this wonderful little Italian restaurant. Top quality homemade pasta with delicious seafood and sauce (first item in the tagliatelle). Excellent service too. Would strongly recommend for one (or more) of your nights in playa.

Tried to add a photo of the delicious food but the android app for Trip advisor doesn't seem to allow you to preview your photos.

We have been to Playa del Carmen several times and always like to find a new place to try out. This by far the seceded our expectations. The pizza was outstanding and they served us the most amazing bread and a salsa type sauce that was perfect! The atmosphere is super cute with easy access and great people watching. It's always nice to find something like this off the Main Street! They don't open until later in the afternoon and are closed on Mondays so be sure and plan around that but I promise you will not be disappointed! Oh... I should also mention they had a great micro beer selection and the staff was absolutely delightful and pleasant. It will definitely be a stop again next time we are in town.
