“Terrific calzones and a memorable Mojito!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We ate here a couple of times and always had very good italian food -- especially their calzones and pizzas. Had a mojito here that I still remember today! Very good service too. There are other pricier restaurants in Tulum that might be prettier but certainly aren't better!

We had Pasta dishes which were very good but the pizza really looked fantastic. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful.

“Friendly and good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

we only actually ate here once (for breakfast) but also stopped by a couple of times for evening cocktails. Everything about the place seemed good - good quality food, friendly staff and great value

“So good i want to cry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Ok, this has to be the best new restaurant in Tulum and i heard its here to stay, ok, first of all its a family buisiness, Linda and Luca and their beautiful mexican- italian dougther Selvaggia are the owners, they are always there with the greatest attitude to give you recomendations and explain the menu. The menu is very basic yet very chic, a foodie can appreciate that. Luca, the chef makes his own pasta, the sea food cant be more fresh and beautiful, the lobster, mussles, calamari , OMG and Linda makes THE BEST cocktails in Tulum , hands down, i had many bloody maries and my HB had mojitos!! Im sure this family buisiness will quickly beat posada margerita, the long time number one restaurant in Tulum. I dont want to compare them since la vongola is in town and does not have a beach view, but is definately more affordable than posada margerita, and has a nice terrace that overlooks the main avenue. I just cant help to go back every time i can. You have to order taggliatele tudo mar, is goergous!

“Excellent Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

Top quality Italian restaurant, the food is superb, I had fresh pasta with mussels and clams and my wife had the pasta with prawns. The food was well prepared nice pasta, great sauce making good use of herbs and olive oil; the shellfish were cooked just right. The service was friendly and efficient; reasonably priced for the quality. I would highly recommend if you like good quality Italian food.
