Fodor's Review

Brick oven pizza and pasta, handmade in full view, have made this fine Italian restaurant a favorite. Appetizers include beef or octopus carpaccio that practically melts in your mouth and a light calamari. Stellar pasta dishes include a delicious lobster ravioli filled with ricotta cheese and served in a white-wine sauce. Cenacolo also has a small wine cave with a romantic table for two (reserve this section in advance). Although it's inside a mall, the restaurant's main dining room is elegant, with stained-glass panels on the ceiling and live piano music. If you're coming by for lunch, note that it opens at 2 pm. There's now a second location at Plaza Peninsula on Avenida Bonampak in El Centro.

Cenacolo Review

We just returned from Cancun and we also had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. The service was world class(down to aerating the wine into a swan decanter),the table ware is elegant,and the food!!!. Their home made pasta is improbably good(who would expect pasta like this in Mexico)the prices are very reasonable. This restaurant deserves to be recognized as outstanding

My new favorite

Ok folks, here is the real story. I am very critical of resturaunts and I just came back from what was without question the best italian meal I have had in decades. Cenacola is my new favorite for hand made Italian cusine. From the time we walked in, the place was 100% class. Atmosphere, Service and Food Quality are beyond question and a must try in Cancun.

Good, but felt neglected

The restaurant was nice, but the wait staff seemed very rushed and our service was very slow. Food was good and so was wine list.
