“Simple and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We ate here after a long day of biking and sightseeing. We ordered the ravioli con carne and the pomodoro fresco pizza. Both were so delicious. The raviolis were homemade and had that wonderful homemade al dente consistency and were stuffed with a delicious meat--not sure what it was-perhaps some combination of sausage and veal?--whatever it was, I wish I could find these raviolis at home. The pizza crust was perfection--very thin and crispy, topped with mozzarella, sliced tomatoes and fresh basil. The serving sizes were just right and with a large bottle of water, our meal came to 275 pesos. Our waitress was very pleasant and we will definitely come here again.

“Missed the Mark”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We visited this busy street corner restaurant early in their dinner service and so we were the only clients for a time, though the restaurant did fill up with families with children as time went on. From an atmosphere standpoint we found the heavy traffic and small children distracting.

The Fettuccine Carbonara was good but did not stand out and the lasagna that was ordered came cold and needed to be taken away and warmed, though it was tasty. The combination of all of the above left us feeling that the restaurant missed the mark at least with us.

Since this restaurant is considered one of the better ones in town and in the top echelon for Italian food in Tulum it really qualifies how much we can say that is positive about our experience.

Prices are OK, the food tasted OK, the service was below OK. OK, is that what you want to have?

“Marginal at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Went because of recent good reviews, but what a let down! Like all the restaurants in Tulum, over priced. Service mediocre and the pizza, pasta, and fish dishes our party ordered were acceptable, but far from stellar. Combined with its location on busy, dusty, noisy Highway 307, I cannot foresee ever returning.
