    Beautiful view, outstanding service and every item that we ordered were presented beautifully and quite tasty. Will return if we were to return to Cancun. Our waiter Edson was very good including his culinary skills. He made an excellent Caesar salad table side.

    Excelente opción para una cena en pareja, los precios son un poco altos, pero se comprende por la ubicación turística. Seleccionen una mesa en la terraza para tener oportunidad de ver al cocodrilo que habita en la laguna.

    El lugar es fabuloso! La mesa en la terraza contemplando el atardecer fue de lo mejor, el servicio muy bueno, los alimentos en general de buen sabor, en específico mi platillo carecía de sabor, probé otros y creo que estaban mejor, todo lo valió el lugar y el ambiente, volvería a ir tal vez escogiendo mejor los alimentos.

    This is really good Italian food and service to match...plus waterfront with crocodiles...and house made desserts...and a hundred USA dollars less than Harrys. They have a better wine selection than Fantinos or Harry's. My wife and I ate at all three. Geraldo waited on us with the same care we received at the other restaurants just named and even as well as the Casitas at the Ritz Carlton. This is a very romantic spot for a couple as well as larger parties which we observed while there. This is some really good food.

    Solid. Super customer service, very on top of it. Bread was fantastic! Had the chicken parm which was solid. Rib eye was a little lacking but hey, it’s an Italian place. It was nice to have a real meal after a week of all inclusive, and the customer service was outstanding.

    Nice quiet dinner, lovely setting, excellent service and food very well prepared. Quite a contrast from the newer "hip" restaurants with DJ's playing music and where it's impossible to have a conversation. Huge Alligator swam by to provide entertainment. It was a great evening.

    The food and service are both incredible, and I think it's important to say that based on these two factors alone this is a great restaurant. What puts it over the top is the setting. The seating area is open air and basically situated on docs, close to the water. As a result, you get great views, and might even see an alligator swim by - we did! Highly recommend this restaurant.

    We had reservations for 8 and our friends had 8 in there group. Food and service for us was excellent but the other table received there food a half hour after us even though they ordered within minutes of us placing our order. In all fairness though the restaurant got really busy really fast. The sound was quiet as we were on the deck outside. All of us agreed the food was fabulous!

    Incredible food but at the end of it we found a piece of hair into our home made pasta, so I think this can happen in every restaurant but it was not nice to see, we just stop eating, pay and left.. but I still recommend it
