Oliva–Italian Fare in MeridaIt's a little strange to find yourself in an Italian restaurant in Merida, when your focus should be the local Yucatean cuisine. But when a young, and talented chef like Stefano Marcelletti decides to cook for you at his brand new restaurant, it's 100% worth the detour.
We had the best seats in the house, right in front of the kitchen, which is separated by a large glass wall from the dining room. The flurry of activity inside was infectious, and the incredible dishes they churned out for us, one after the other, left our rambunctious crowd speechless and in awe. It was a real journey for the senses. Simple plates, such as a caprese salad, made our taste buds explode. At the end we all felt it was a good break from our intense foray into Yucatean food over the past few days.
The restaurant's interios is modern, perhaps even a little bit industrial in style. It looked like mostly locals ate here, as we didn't spot a other tourists.
If you're ready to take a break from Mexican food, or simply in the mood for some scrumptious Italian fare, this is your place.
Oliva Enoteca only takes reservations for 8 and more people. All other will be seated on a first come first serve basis.
