Cenacolo - Playa del Carmen
Fabulous food and service. You have a lot of options along 5th Avenue. This is by far one of the better choices. I have dined here several times. Food and service Is consistently excellent!
Rica comida, buenos vinos. Mesero algo inexperto pero bienintencionado. Muy recomendables los carpaccios y las pastas.
Muy bueno, comimos espectacular!
The Valentina salad and the Bottarga spaghetti were excellent. Service impeccable along a very nice setting.
Love this place when we visit Playa. Food is perfect. Service is impeccable. They remember us! A welcome back is such a nice tone setter. I will always come back.
Food was great, especially the fresh pasta!
Truly wonderful authentic Italian food with great wine choices
It was fantastic! My pasta was amazing! The service was outstanding.
Didn’t like at all. Food was sub par at best. I think I make better pasta at home. Waiter was pushy to order more food and more expensive wine (that was horrendous). A tourist trap on 5th ave; you can do much better in Playa.
Great food, service and ambience. Best restaurant on 5th Ave in Playa del Carmen!
Great dinner, service and ambience
Excellent food and service
My wife and I visited this restaruant during our last trip to Playa del Carmen 8 years ago. The restaurant has moved to much larger space now (we like the last smaller location slightly better) but the food and service is the same as before. We are used to NYC Italian restaurant scene and we have traveled most of Italian regions for food but this restaurant is definitely up there in chart with much more expensive and recognized restaurants elsewhere. We had calamari stuffed shrimp and their handmade
"Green Hat" ravioli with butter and sage sauce and they were out of this world. The experiecned server named Antonio has added great deal of pleasure while dining at this incredible restauarnt tucked in a rather remote part of Mexico away from Italy or NYC.
Very good service, very good pasta.
On the negative side, Their wine is totally overpriced for playa and it’s the main reason I won’t go back.
The food was very good and the service was excellent.
We go to Cenacolo every year that we go to Playa del Carmen. While it is not cheap the food and service are always outstanding!
Wonderful as always. Going back tonight before we leave.
Best restaurant in Playa del Carmen...we look forward to going every year.
We make this a tradition every time we are in Playa. Fantastic!!!!!
The Quattro Formaggi Rissotto was amazing! The wait staff was great, too!
We went to this restaurant twice during our week stay. The pasta is freshly made and delicious. The Valentino salad was the best!. Antonio the maitre d is a real gentleman. Our waiter Carlos and Gilberto were terrific.
We enjoy Cenacola in Playa and in Cancun. The pasta is great as are the salads. The minestrone soup has been a favorite. The waiters are very attentive and aim to please.
What an amazing place the service was great and the food even better. House made pasta the green hats in sage butter amazing the carpaccio was to die for. Every time we visit Playa it will be a must. I am a huge foodie and don’t do a lot of reviews. Highly recommend!!!
Good location in the newer east section of the main blvd. Wonderful food, preparation and service. Will be back again!
Robo!!! Intentaron cobrarme un Spagueti Vongole en MIL PESOS!
We have even to Cenocolo quite a few times as our daughter and family live in Playa del Carmen. We are visiting from the USA. The service is always fabulous, and the food is to die for! We love this restaurant! The menu is wonderful and includes as number of handmade pasta dishes. Fabulous!
Espectacular el servicio!
La comida excelente y la carta de vinos muy amplía y buena.
We love this restaurant. The service and the food are amazing.
Olor a tiner
Imposible comer con ese olor
Muy buen restaurante, lindo y la comida espectacular, en especial el risotto de hongos con trufa y las pastas frescas. Es caro pero lo vale.
El mayor problema es q el aire acondicionado no servía
Great atmosphere and delicious food. Came with a group of 8 adults. Wine and drink selection was perfect. Homemade pasta a must try. Will come back every time we are in playa.
This visit occurred on a family vacation to Cancun. People who had been there recommended it. There is a well-balanced menu, with sufficient choices in each category, whether you want meat, fish, poultry, pasta, or vegetarian. One of the first questions we were asked was if anyone had any food allergies. As one of our grandchildren has a severe peanut allergy, we were pleased when they informed us that they do not use peanuts or peanut products in the restaurant.
There was ample choices from the wine menu, and everyone was pleased with the Barbera that was chosen. The decanter they use is a work of art.
The minestrone soup was outstanding, as were several of the entrees. You won't go wrong with Los Sombreros Verdes, Ravioli Los Clasicos, El Salmon con Espinacas, or the Penne alla Sorrentina al Horno. The dessert menu looked decadent, but no one, including three teenagers, had any room left.
No one eats early. We had a 7:30 reservation, arrived, and the place was empty. By 9:00, nearly every table was in use.
Pasta deliciosa, servicio de primera todo como siempre ojalá y montaran uno en CDMX sería un éxito rotundo
La comida buena, buen servicio, el unico detalle es que te incluyen la propina forzandote a dejar el 15, yo esperaba dejarlo y lo hice, pero no es l9 mismo darlo voluntariamente a forzar. Las propinas son voluntarias y no deben de sumarlo al total, pueden sugerir.
Excellent restaurant. Best italian food in playa by a country mile.
Food is amazing!!! Every time I am in Playa I go there! Their pasta nera is wonderful!!!! This time I happened to sit besides a couple that was there for the second time in the same week! The food is delicious!
Our "go to" Italian restaurant in Playa del Carmen. Renee the manager always takes great care of us. Excellent pasta, superb salad and fabulous gelato with Amoretto!
Wonderful restaurant. We come every year for my husband’s birthday! Love it!!!
