Best Italian food I´ve ever eaten outside Italy!

This place is trully amazing. You will have the best pasta there is in Mexico hands down. Get the carbonara! In my stay in Tulum, my Italian girlfriend and I, dinned here 3 days in a row.

Both visits to this great little restaurant were perfect. The staff and the owner are so friendly and happy to explain items of the menu and their recommendations are spot on. I had the gnocchi with mushroom and cream sauce, and I don't like mushrooms but the sauce was delicious and the pasta cooked to perfection. OH had gnocchi with... More

Great street side tables in the heart of Tulum. Shady until late PM. We had early dinner here and were pleased with the freshness and care that went into the food. The ravioli and pesto dishes were a big hit. We planned to return but it was their day off - our loss. I wouldn't hesitate eating my way thru... More

We ate here based on good reviews from friends and Tripadvisor. However, nothing we ate here would make us want to come back. My husband ordered the fettuccine with tomato meat sauce, and as a previous reviewer had commented, it did taste like Chef Boyardee from a can! I had fettuccine as well with shrimp and brandy in a cream... More

Service = great Appetizer = got the Antipasti, had a little prosciutto and vegetables, no cheese!! Nothing special Pasta = went with the Fettucine Bologna. Pasta was cooked nice. However, the sauce was not fresh...reminded me of a step above chef boyardee sauce. I've eaten Italian food in NYC, Boston, Connecticut, even Italy. In my opinion, this place is average... More

This is a real gem of a restaurant. The owner or manager (we assume) was a great host, his staff excellent, the atmosphere and location made it fun, and the food was the real deal.

Very nice service and the atmosphere is very romantic with the colored lights and we were Lucky to have our meal accompanied by a guitar player. But the food was still the best part! The pasta is amazing!

We would recommend this restaurant to anyone that travels to Tulum. Not only is the food fantastic, the service was great, and the portions were more than worth the money. There are lots of "italian" restaurants out there, but it's difficult to find real, authentic italian food... Trattoria Romana was real authentic italian food. This is also coming from someone...
