Very good pasta selection, and so tasty! Wine is available, and service was great! The value is great for taste, and portion sizes are large.

We love to dine in town for inexpensive, simple italian and / or Mexican food when we visit Tulum, and we opted to try Trattoria Romana. We ordered Spaghetti with spicy tomato sauce, and it was VERY unpleasant, too much sauce that was acidic and salty like if it was not home-made , too much gloppy sauce over overcooked spaghetti......

I've been here several times over the last few years, including when I lived there. The brothers who run the place have always been exceedingly nice, genuine people with me, as well as their wait staff. Invariably, I always get some seafood pasta dish and it has always been great. I also find the group of Italians who often gather... More

Centrally located, traditional Italian fare, the best part is the service, we had a young attentive local that was excited to practice his English, so i practiced my Spanish. Nice patio to people watch over a few beers

We ordered the seafood pasta special and another pasta dishes which were both made with fresh ingredients and went well with glasses of house wine (the have other... More

We came to eat with hopes of having an amazing Italian dinner because of the photos and the reviews. However the photos are misleading. The food looks great the but flavors are far from it, and the service was not good. The waiter literally came took our order and brought the food/drinks. That was it. The best part of eating...

So as we all know kids says the true. We mostly eat at home, I love to eat good and cooking is one of my passions, all my friends love come over for dinner. My best dishes are pastas, because of that in most places that my kids eat past they really don't like it.. Expect Trattoria Romana that is... More

I was in the mood for pasta, so stopped here for dinner. They have an extensive menu of pastas, meat, chicken, & seafood dishes at reasonable prices. The server brought some fairly good bread with olive oil & balsamic for dipping. I had the gnocchi with meat sauce which was a bit salty for my taste. My friend had the... More

I asked if it was possible to have the fish in wine sauce with mushrooms because it appeared separate on the menu. The very Itailian cook said he could do that. $140 pesos (no extra charges). My delisous fish was served covered with mushrooms, so good. My wife had the shrimp in brandy sauce. We explained to the waiter and... More

I had gnocci with gorgonzola and they were awesome; margaritas and cuba libres were on offer (2 for 1 = 65 Pesos); Alex, the owner, was very attentive and made sure his customers were happy at all times; we got a shot of tequila on the house
