Take a break from traditional Mexican fare and visit one of the best Italian restaurants in Playa del Carmen on your next visit. La Famiglia is located on 10th Avenue, which is within walking distance from Playa Palms Hotel. In addition to an extensive menu, they also offer delicious pizza — both traditional and gourmet — and a tasty wine list offered by the glass.
La Famiglia gets high marks on food, service and atmosphere. They have also received positive feedback for keeping their menu prices affordable. The majority of their food items are less than $10 U.S. dollars. All of their food is made from scratch, including their bread, which is made in an old world-style and provides the perfect venue for soaking up delicious olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
La Famiglia’s signature dishes include:
- Bruschetta. This appetizer will keep you coming back for more! The mild Yucatan climate means fresh tomatoes nearly year round. When mixed with minced garlic, basil and a little olive oil, you can’t get enough on La Famiglia’s toasted homemade bread.
- Lasagna. Who doesn’t love a good lasagna? Make sure at least one person in your party orders this delicious dish, then sit close to them so you can sneak a bite or two.
- Gnocchi. One of the things that sets La Famiglia apart from other Italian restaurants is their commitment to homemade pastas. This includes the potato-based gnocchi dish, which comes topped with a rich, creamy sausage sauce.
- Pizzas. From your basic cheese and veggie pizzas to gourmet versions that include gorgonzola and arugula, these pizza’s crispy crusts will melt in your mouth. Order a few because they disappear fast in a group.
