Based on the amazing reviews this restaurant gets we thought we would check it out. The pizza was good, we had the lobster one, but I was not blown away. It was a basic thin-crust cheese pizza with some lobster tails on top.

This was right next to Las Tortugas hotel so was perfect for our first night since it was raining. You def don't get far on the flooded streets of Holbox in the rain. The food was good and service was good and it's a good location to people watch.

We ordered the lobster pizza. The sauce was just okay, not really packed with flavour. Very pretty but not a lot of lobster either. I liked lobster pizza at other restaurants better. I liked the gnocchi Gorgonzola better, sauce delicious. Next I will try other pastas. Worth a visit.

We had the lobster pizza, and it looked exactly like other reviewers photos. This is more of a neapolitan style, soft dough pizza. Unfortunately after eating the pizza, we found out from locals that they use baby lobsters for the pizza, which hurts the natural cycle of sustainability for lobsters. So while I definitely would recommend the pizza here, you... More

Yes, we returned several times. Prosciutto..not on the menu, but sometimes available, is excellent. Pizza perfect. Pastas amazingly good. And a wonderful wine list that unfortunately sometimes depends on delivery. But if the chianti isn't being served, ask for an alternative and try their excellent substitutes. I didn't go to Mexico for a taste of Italy, but so very happy... More

This was one of the best meals we had on the Island. Fantastic appetizer (Tuna Tartar) tasty drinks (Margaritas) and wonderful Pizza (1 Lobster, 1 Quattro Formaggio) along with excellent service. The atmosphere was nice too- we sat outside at a table overlooking one of the streets on the Square. Super fun & Super Delicious.

Lovingly prepared by Argentinian Italian owners. Great pizza, wonderful service, pasta all homemade. Utterly delicious. They use real mozzarella not substitute. Skip the hype of the other pizzaria and come to the best. On the square.....

Wow. I had no idea I could find such authentic Italian pizza on this tiny island in Mexico! Beautiful thin and crispy crust and the right amount of cheese. So good. Our server suggested a wine not listed on the menu and it was wonderful! Very inexpensive and great quality. I would absolutely recommend this place.

Thank DRPMpls
