“Authentic Italian (Roman) Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

A real authentic italian restaurant in Tulum. We tried the pasta with seafood, arrabbiata and amatriciana. Everything was tasty and nicely prepared. Also the Tiramisu was delicious. The owners are two brothers from Rome. Alessio, one of the owners, is a very friendly and talkative guy, who looks very well after his guests and makes them feel very welcome. His brother is in the kitchen ensuring the right preparation of each dish.
Also all of their staff is friendly and courteous, and also informed about the daily specials, ingredients etc.

I am italian myself, and greatly appreciated the possibility of having some real italian cuisine during our two weeks in Mexico.

The prices are very honest, especially considering the large portions served.

“Best Italian in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

The one rule to remember when eating in Tulum is eat where the locals eat. If you are craving Italian, walk downtown and you will find many Italians at Trattoria Romana. The food is fresh, the service is good and you will probably have enough left over for another meal. My favorite meal is the Rigatoni Gorgonzola although I doubt there is a bad choice to be made there. Mangia!
