Location and contact

Locanda Paolo, Italian Fusion Ristorante. We are a family run restaurant that just celebrated its 20th Anniversary. Proud to be a Downtown Restaurant.. we provide service to both locals and turists. The experience of visiting Locanda Paolo is never the same. Owners are on site and greet, serve, recommend and cook for you. We are a small and discreet restaurant. We like keeping it like that!! Let Paolo and Rafa help you personalize your own meal. "Food for the soul made with the Heart" a classy yet traditional Italian dinner.

There were six of us. All of our meals were great and the owner and his daughter take such good care of us. I had salmon and my husband had the tuna. Both were wonderful.

Love this place. Very good atmosphere and food. I always get one of the specials when I go here and it hasn't failed me yet. Eggplant lasagna and truffle fusilli are amazing. Whenever we're in Cancun we also make sure to go here!

Locanda Paolo offers gourmet Italian in down town Cancún, across the street on the back of Puerto Cancún. The Boquinete with Lobster sauce is fantastic!
