I grew up in Rome and I am familiar with the Castelli Romani. This restaurant was the real thing! Genuine food from the Rome area. Amazing ambiance, but forget that! I would've enjoyed their food in hell!!!

I don't like to knock places because everyone needs to make money. This place isn't bad, but isn't great. The pizza is alright nothing like other pizza places in tulum. The pasta was overly sauced and boring, lots of parmesagne was needed to bring out some more flavour. Staff here are really good and atmosphere is nice too. Good selection... More
