The location is wrong on Google maps. It is actually on the side street across from the church. The wine selection was a bit limited but adequate. Beer choices were limited to two. There is a nice selection of pizzas, all cooked in a wood fire oven. Mine was delicious. We also had the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was delicious.... More

Didn't have Salad on the menu and the Chef made us a wonderful salad. Our meals were served with Garlic Bread. I had Carbonara and my husband had Bolognese. Both were awesome. This is coming from my husband who was also an Italian Chef!

Delicious Italian food at the right price. You can have a pepperoni pizza half the price compared to Playa del Carmen, and twice as delicious.

We discovered this restaurant on our last night on Puerto Morelos by accident, but I wish we had discovered it sooner because I would definitely return here if I am ever in Puerto Morelos again!! The pizza was great (I'm very demanding with pizza and in my opinion this one of the best of out other places I've traveled to)... More

We ate by chance at the Ristorante. We came across while walking and the delicious aroma drew us right in. We ordered the pepperoni pizza. It was delicious with a crisp thin crust. We were also served complimentary garlic toast with oils. We were so impressed that we ate there 2 more times on our trip. The bacon carbonara was... More

LTL shares a large patio-fronted building located on the south side Av Tulum, just across the street from the Catholic parroquia (church - who's interior is worth checking out). On the left side is Los Tacos de Don Roger Rabbit serving Mexican. On the rightside is Los Tejones Locos (crazy coatimundis?) serving Italian and advertising fresh handmade pasta. The owner... More

This restaurant is just off the square. Italianesque in cuisine. We had 2 of the pasta dishes and a pizza. The fettuccine Alfredo was bland, the second pasta was not memorable. The pizza with prosciutto and arugula was interesting but not worth trying again.

We have always loved our food at this restaurant and the owner is very accommodating. Last night the grouper with lemon and capers with a side of spaghetti was delicious and my husband's grouper Siciliana was a lovely type of a tomato-based stew. The magic came with the music. A very talented musician who played numerous instruments very well had... More
