This small cocina run by an Italian mother & daughter (who have lived here for decades) offers the best authentic italian cuisine on the island and is a well-guarded secret of the locals.

A local directed me here for lunch and I was quite impressed by the Italian grandmother cooking away her family recipes. A 3 course meal and the iced tea are included once you choose your main. Try the lasagna.!!

A wonderful selection of entrees - 2 chicken dishes, pork, lobster tail, fish and lasagna. Served with soup, salad and pasta. Service is great and friendly all in a home setting. The desserts are also tasty - we had tiramisu and a chocolate bomb.

I am a local. This is my favorite for lunch in Cozumel. The food is very good and prices are more than reasonable. Save room for the tiramisu.

Where are the words? This is the finest Italian food I have ever tasted. I eat here about two or three times a month and never disappointed. This is truly authentic Italiano and I don't mean Americanized Italian. It's a semi buffet style eatery. When you walk in the days selections are on a counter and you pick your meal.... More
