The second night the hubby had the ravioli with ricotta and spinach with the red sauce. This was absolutely excellent. A very nice light, fresh tomato sauce that I could eat every day and never tire of it. I had the Fettuccini Carbonara; a perfect blend of sauce and meat; very nice al dente pasta. We dined with friends the second night - he had the same ravioli as my hubby except he had the alfredo sauce. I preferred the tomato on the ravioli. My girlfriend had the lobster tagliolini which was excellent. Pasta portions were generous and served as breakfast the next day.
At both meals we were offered a slice of excellent bruchetta as an appetizer and a limoncello for an after dinner drink. Both on the house. The second night I also ordered an Era Ora salad - I really didn't care for the greens it was served on - they had a slightly bitter taste I didn't like. But, I certainly wouldn't let that stop me from eating there again. I just wouldn't order the salad.
They do have a website www.eraoraplaya.com
- I thought the menu had changed a bit since it was posted. But, that could be chalked up to the fact that I read the website menu without benefit of several before dinner palomas.
We rarely repeat dining in the same place in Playa because of all the options but we agreed this was a "must do again" place. Our friends felt the same way. We also enjoyed the rooftop as a dining area.
excellent!! thank you so much for your input. i can't wait to eat here again. we had a really good pizza there, some type of risotto with sausage/mushrooms and a steak. might have been something else, but instead of your palomas i had martinis and red wine!! lol...
