Cenacolo - Playa del Carmen
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!!!
Big menu..it’s ok...
The food was outstanding! Extremely high quality Italian food and great service.
Food was poorly prepared and expensive. Salmon was under cooked despite requesting for cooked through. It was put back on the grill and dried out completely. Pasta was swimming in butter and cheese was not offered until having to ask. Worst meal in Playa del Carmen.
Excellent food in great location on 5th ave in Playa Del Carmen. Home made pasta was as good as NYC!
Great location to people watch & have quiet dinner.
The homemade pasta was excellent !! Salad was fresh - she had caprese and I had pear w raspberry vinaigrette- both were perfect. Wine list extensive - I had a Spanish red by the glass that the waiter recommended and it complemented my spicy spaghetti w prosciutto perfectly. Will be added to my list of regular visits while in playa
This was the second time we ate here. The Pasta made in the parmesan wheel was outstanding as was the thin crust pizza from their wood-fired oven.
Los meseros ateden bien pero hay muy pocos, por lo tanto todo es muy apurado. Sino, la comida y el ambiente son buenos.
We were 5 minutes late for our reservation because google maps had the address on the wrong cross street. When we arrived the hostess had given away our table. She quickly found us a new one. The meal was fantastic. The parmesan bowls we delicious, the lasagne did not have a meat sauce and not a real bolognese sauce, but very tasty. Overall our experience was great.
Several people at our resort recommended Cenacolo to us so we decided to check it out. What a great choice! The whole dining experience was a delight. The wait staff was attentive, efficient and quite professional. The menu choices were broad enough that everyone could find something they liked. My sister ordered the carbonara, which was prepared table-side and she raved about how delicious it was. She said it was the best carbonara she had ever had! I had the lasagna bolognese, and it was very, very good. Portions were large, enough to take some back for lunch the next day. The prices were very reasonable. We were seated by where the pasta was being made and it was fascinating to watch the ravioli's and black pasta being prepared. Dessert was also very good. I had the chocolate drop and it was very satisfying to a confirmed chocoholic! Cenacolo will be a "must visi" for our next visit to Playa del Carmen!
Gran lugar, comida italiana real y calidad de primera, buenas porciones y excelente carta de vinos, es la segunda vez que voy y regresaría.
Excellent Italian food with good wine for affordable prices. Will definitely come again. Handmade organic pasta is delicious!
Food was a bit cold. We’ve asked if plates were to share and when they got to the table we had a terrible surprise that they were not.
I’ll never go back there
We used to go to this place a lot and the manager Mateo ran the place like a world class establishment. He is gone from the restaurant now for whatever reason and the place has never been the same since.
Our entire dining experience was an epic fail, a total fiasco! We won’t be back any time soon!!!
Excellent fresh made pasta; very attentive service
Fresh & delicious. As a GF diner, I Enjoyed my dinner!!!
delicious. Other diners Loved their dinners too
Great food and great service as usual. Quality has been consistent year after year.
Very nice Italian food with efficient polite service
Delicioso, el servicio muy bueno, el mesero sabía mucho de vino, nos recomendó uno excelente. La alcachofa está muy buena, así como las pastas hechas en casa
