Lovely food and really friendly restaurant, delicious margaritas! Service is a bit sleepy but the staff are lovely and the atmosphere is enough in the meantime. Would recommend.

Good was good, service as well. The emplacement is a bit strange (mid of two main road) but if you want good food for affordable price this is a right place for you.

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

Calamari, Bruschetta, Grouper, Calzone, Pizza, Breaded Chicken Cutlets with Herbs.......everything was excellent. Luciano took great care of our entire family. Candle light, great atmosphere. The best meal that we've had south of Akumal. We will return on this trip and all of our trips. Thanks!

Lovely atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff, delicious food. Pellegrino was presented with fresh lime and mint, futbol was on the flat screen. Arugula salad was delectable, Napoli pizza was perfection. If you find yourself in the mood for Italian food in Tulum, or even if you don't, stop in. You won't regret it. Highly recommend!
