We were extremely pleased with our dining experience at Cenacolo. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. I was extremely pleased with the black pasta dinners. It was delicious and very different than the taste of traditional Italian food. I would definitely go there again.

The handmade pasta is truely amazing. Combine that with beautiful outdoor seating and top notch service and you get a restaurant that makes you long to slip south of the border.

I have worked in the restaurant business, and in particular in fine Northern Italian Restaurants. I must say that the quality and presentation of the menu items is as fine as any I have encountered, including those in Italy. So impressed we returned for a second time while in Playa del Carmen. Staff, ambiance, all excellent. Can't wait to visit... More

Here is what I know. my service was perfect, the staff was super friendly, our pasta was obviously fresh and perfectly cooked, and tiramisu and cappuccino was spot on at the end of dinner. I would like... More

I see other reviews on here that question the service at this establishment. Sorry to hear, of course, but our service was just fine. There were also some comments about it being overpriced but that's subjective. I thought pricing was inline for upscale Italian. Maybe it's a bit high for Mexico. Who knows. Who cares So we went anyway, with... More
