We decided to visit this place based on all the great reviews it had, however ended up leaving disappointed with the food. The service was very friendly, quick and the place has a nice atmosphere. Nevertheless the vegetarian pasta was undercooked, with some kind of Indian curry sauce and came out coldish. The pizza was tasty but if you like... More

My wife, grandson and I truly enjoyed our meal last night. Not speaking Spanish, we placed ourselves in our waiters hands. He suggested the Carpaccio - my spelling may be incorrect but the dish was an excellent starter for good conversation and laughter. For those not familiar, think "build your own bruschetta" from the cubed tomatoes, paper thin slices of... More

Italian-themed restaurant across the boardwalk from the water with an excellent view in a quiet part of Mahahual (south of the more crowded part). They have a mixed seafood special for a minimum of two people that is terrific and reasonably priced. And their pina coladas are excellent too. My wife and I recommend it highly.

They have two nice locations. I went to the hotel in the "town" just in front of the beach. Awesome place, pretty comfortable and food is excellent. Did not have the chance to see the rooms, but by looking all the attentions and amenities, I guess they are pretty awesome. Pizza is fantastic and salads are great as well.

This is a must stop while in town, just a short walk from town, but right on the beach, with ocean views and top notch italian food options.

Beautiful and fresh salads, wonderfully prepared dishes of all kinds. You really can't go wrong. Fresh pasta and ravioli! Pizza by the (square) slice or whole pie (rectangular) is awesome--be sure to try the lobster pizza. The crust is unusual and tasty. Very appreciative that this restaurant is taking a very public stand on "No popotes." ("No drinking straws," which... More

We went to Luna de Plata for our anniversary dinner while visiting Mahahual September 16 - 22., We started with bruschetta con tomatoes. For our main courses we had the lobster spaghetti and grouper ravioli. We were also served fresh bread with a really good butter. It was a delicious meal.
