After strolling the streets looking for vegetarian options in restaurants we ended up at Ula Gula. We had pasta stuffed with mushroom, which was delicious, and so was their baked brie with watercress. Cocktails were good too and not too sweet.

I've been here 3 times and each time the food has been great. The service is pretty good but I recommend trying to get a seat away from a speaker. At night the music is a bit loud and it's hard to have nice conversations over dinner without shouting. Overall though a great experience and the mushroom ravioli is incredible!!!

There are a lot of Italian restaurants in PCD and this is one of them. The food was good and the scene is nice overlooking 5th. But for the money there are much better Italian restaurants I'd recommend such as Romeo's, Casa Sofia's, Papa Charlies or La Famaligia. The food is less expensive and much better at each of these...

Had a great meal here in January but disappointing in September. Menu was different. Seafood pasta was overcooked. Carpaccio was covered with sauce that overpowered flavour. Fish was overcooked as well. Pizza was good.

Exceptional place in Playa del Carmen to have some drinks with friends, enjoy a nice lunch or dinner with our Italian menu, mouthwatering dishes, excellent service and good vibe. Ula Gula is the ideal place to enjoy an afternoon or night in a tropical eclectic environment in the most "IN" corner of town.
