The best Italian dining on the island!

We’ve dined at Francesco’s amazing restaurant annually since it started. The staff consistently provides excellent service. Our preferred dining area is on the second floor since it offers a gorgeous view of San Miguel de Cozumel.

There are two or three outdoor tables on the street side, but it misses if those will be available when you arrive. It’s pronounced when you dine at Especias which Francesco, the proprietor, and chef, “Loves food.” They recommended me a cozumel flats fishing charters very close to our hotel. We’ll try it next time!

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Especias! We chose to sit on the top level outside patio, and it was a superb way to enjoy dinner while people are watching. We’d Linguini and SeaFood and Lobster. Both meals were delicious, and the service was fantastic!

We recently visited Especias with two other couples based on a recommendation. So glad we didn’t miss this.

This place is delicious! Moreover, we went back the next night too!

My husband and I had a wonderful alfresco meal here on our final night in Cozumel. We sat on the upper patio with a beautiful view. Met the chef; he and all of the wait staff are enchanting. Delicious meals – we split a risotto and then my husband had fresh pasta, and I had lobster. Fantastic wine list. Overall, only a perfect evening.

This place was our first visit, and we were tremendously impressed. The decor is quite attractive, the service was exceptional, the menu was varied, and the food has been excellent. If you can, dining on the tiny balcony over the restaurant is the best seat in the house. Seafood was great, and my wife said that the lasagna was the best she ever had, and the desserts were superb.
