Best meal we had in Mexico. And that’s saying a lot because we had some amazing meals in Tulum and Merida. Great wine, great pasta, great service. We’ll definitely go back!

There’s 1 chef and a sous-chef making made-to-order dishes of handmade pasta and sauces that rival some of the best anywhere around. An absolute must when in Merida.

I believe if you let them know your requirements they might be able to comply and make Adjustments. If Stefano the chef/owner is there. Ask for him.
