Absolutely are favorite restaurant in Cancun. The food and service is outstanding. We will return in the next few days as we had a wonderful dinner. We are looking forward to returning sometime in the next few days. We love it there!
We absolutely loved this restaurant! The interior is very modern and fun. The tables are far enough apart so that no one feels cramped in their seat. The views of the yacht club are beautiful though the floor to ceiling windows. The drinks were all very different and full of flavor. We loved everything we ordered and my son actually ordered 2 orders because it was so good. All of the pasta is homemade and so fresh. You are able to watch them making your pasta too. My daughter had the fresh spaghetti made in a cheese wheel at the table which was unique. Our server was very attentive and we never waited long for refills or any request. This restaurant is a MUST visit while in Cancun!!
I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Great food and homemade pasta.
By far, the best restaurant in Cancun. Believe it or not, but probably best Italian restaurant ever been to ... and it’s in Mexico! Service is superb and food is amazing. Ate here twice and can’t wait to go back.
Our favorite dinner destination in Cancun! Has a high end feel but that staff are warm and welcoming. Service is impeccable. Excellent wine list. Homemade pasta is superb. Steak and salmon were cooked to perfection.
Wonderful service by Yessica, made our evening and dinner special!
We enjoyed everything about this place. The beautiful view on the water, the food and the service.
Eaten here many times. Always a wonderful experience. One of the best restaurants in Cancun for sure.
One of our favorite restaurants in the world. The service is excellent, views at sunset over the lagoon remarkable, and best of all the food is delicious. We often eat here multiple times during our week stay.
Who would have thought you could find truly world-class Italian in Cancun, well this place is it. Having recently traveled to Tuscany, I didn't expect such high-quality Italian fare. The wine list offers exclusively Italian wines with a wide price range, and our server Yesica did a very classy presentation of the wine in a decanter with a spout that was at least 2 foot long, never seen one that pretty. Burrata capresse and house salad were both great, lasagna and "Green Hats" pasta were truly exceptional, made fresh daily and it showed. Dessert list was also terrific. The views of the lights across the back bay is lovely, not a bad view in the place. Spacing between tables was nice. This restaurant gets my highest marks.
Fabulous food and service! A great find among all the options in the hotel zone of Cancun.
Great place to eat at in Cancun. Great food and service. We will always return to it when we are in Cancun
Great food poor service, wonderful location, Wonderful setting
This was once one of our favorites. We have gone back 4 years in a row. Unfortunately the wait staff is not a happy bunch. We always feel that our waiter is part of our dining experience. He came to our table without a smile or a comment and turned over our water glasses. Walked away. Came back again without a smile or intro and asked about water. We asked about cocktails and he offered a menu, again no acknowledgement. We said we knew our cocktails and they didn’t have either and we compromised to what they had. When we asked for additional ice my husband finally went to the bar, at which point the waiter countered him and took the ice from him and placed it at the table without comment or apology or smile. It appears the wait staff is very unhappy at this establishment. Not welcoming or cordial. It’s unfortunate as the meal was quite good. We won’t be going back. If my husband had his way we were leaving after the cocktail fiasco. Too bad. We hate to say it’s all the waiter but management should be on top of attitude. There should be protocol when approaching a table. At least a smile and intro.
Wonderful restaurant on the Hotel strip (Lagoon side), was a hit with the family. Pasta was wonderful, it was handmand from scratch onsite. My Italian friends would live this place! Service was not the best on this visit, trainee waiter had a few hiccups! None the less views and food were wonderful!
Our dinner was one of the best we have had while staying in Cancun! The food is amazing... always presented with style and SO GREAT tasting!! We will miss coming here as if Cenacolo was in our area we would go there often. Our waitress, Jessica was excellent... very pleasant,
accommodating, knowledgable, and right there when you needed her to help with a menu selection or recommendation. I HIGHLY recommend you eat here... you won't be dissappointed.
By the way... the Lasagna and Valentina salad are 2 of our favorites!
Wonderful Italian spot for real home made pastas made right in front of you. Fresh home made sauces as well. Also great location right on the water. The food quality and presentation was outstanding. Price was what you would expect for a mid to high end establishment.
A MUST go to while in Cancun. This restaurant has it all...Great service, amazing food, and a perfect view. Everything we ordered was amazing and perfectly prepared. If you miss this restaurant you will be sorry that you didn’t stop to enjoy a wonderful Italian meal.
Great food and amazing views!
Loud music. Don’t bother
Average food. Average ambience. Overpriced.
The vodka penne was the best I’ve ever had. Hands down. The ambiance, location and service were so relaxing and wonderful. We truly enjoyed the whole experience. Wonderful dinner in Cancun.
Music was too loud but they did turn it down.
Service very slow but it was high season - new year week- but staff all so nice and apologetic. Brought complimentary desserts for us being patient.
Good food, a great location overlooking the lagoon, and a nice dining layout. Service was very sluggish, inattentive and aloof which really negatively impacted the overall mood and dining experience. If they put a lot more effort into an attentive wait staff then this place would be more popular. Regarding their menu: It's traditional Italian - it would be a more interesting and compelling menu if they let the local food and cuisine influence it more. I wouldn't go back as there are so many other better places to eat but I'd recommend for a good-enough traditional Italian meal if that's what you're looking for.
Very poor service, inexperienced staff and mediocre food at best. Disappointing 😞
We have been several times in the past. The food and service continue to decline. Our waiter apologized for being ‘overwhelmed’ but that is really not acceptable. The last three years they have mixed up our reservation and either don’t want to seat us or they want to put us in an undesirable location. We won’t be back.
Started with the Valentina Salad and the stuffed shrimp calamari. We told the waiter we would be sharing and they split up the dishes for the two of us - very nice.
We continued with the green hats and the bolognese lasagne - and again they were kind enough to split the portions so that could again share and taste both items.
The service was exceptional. The setting on the bay is beautiful. The food - while very good - is not special enough to rate a full 5 stars.
My only real complaint is that the wine list is very expensive!
Would try it again - but would go to MB first.
Linguine Vongole w live clams WAY too salty
Table service and lagoon view excellent
Cena muy rica y agradable, tuve mesa en el exterior y el clima estuvo perfecto, el carpaccio de carne delicioso
The food at Cenacolo was incredibly fresh and delicious. The presentation and service were extraordinary! The sunset view was breathtaking. We wish we had another night in Cancun just so we could return for another meal!
A beautiful restaurant with a nice menu selection. The pasta carbonara was finished tableside, nice touch. Food was tasty and well presented. Service was a bit spotty. At the conclusion of our meal it took over 20 minutes to receive the check . The bill included a 15% gratuity which the waiter said was in the system however it was optional. I noted that at the table next to us they asked to have their water glasses refilled which took over 15 minutes. Overall the food was good enough that I would return and hopefully the service might improve.
For Italian food in Mexico, it was very good. You can tell they make everything in house
The restaurant had nice ambiance and great view of the lagoon. However, the service from our waiter was not good at all.
Our Open Table reservation was for an outside table. When checking in the hostess said we did not reserve an outside table and instead put us inside. The same happened to a 2nd couple and a3rd couple. Then after 10 minutes, the hostess transferred both other parties to outside tables.When we questioned them why, all they could say was sorry.
Their attitude left a lot to be desired.
The waiter Juan and his asst were most helpful and very attentive! They explained the menu, the glasses of wine they offered and were very very good at what they do!! Very knowledgeable! The food was delicious and and the ambience was very good even though we couldn’t sit outside. We still had a wonderful time and they gave us an anniversary dessert as we mentioned it was our anniversary. Very nice!! Want to definitely go there again!!
It was a spetacular dinner! I love it and i’ll recommend for everbody! ♥️
What a surprise! Fantastic food and service and the view was excellent. We sat on the patio and it was a treat! Fresh hand made pasta was excellent! Definitely not a cheap casual dinner out but worth it!
One of the best Italian meals I have ever had. Fresh pastas were great. The pizza was fantastic. Our server Oscar went above and beyond. We have been coming to Cancun for many years and sorry this was our first time here. Please go!!!!
Delicious meal at a lovely restaurant. Would recommend to anyone visiting Cancun.
Soooo good! Everything was delicious and much of it was prepared table side.
