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

I had dinner here with friends and we could not have been happier. I had the chicken parmesan , which was excellent and a huge portion. I took half of it home for another meal. It is neat and clean and worth stooping at.

We stopped in PM for lunch before heading to the airport in Cancun. As it was Easter, the place was in chaos for parking. We parked down from the main square heading out on foot. The owner of this restaurant came out with a menu and recommendation of specialities, ie fresh homemade pasta, parmigiana eggplant, etc. He was a very... More
