Description: L'Arrabbiata Restaurant – a cozy intimate italian restaurant with a warming atmosphere, where the easiness of ingredients is blended with the taste of authentic italian tradition's dishes. You will taste hearty starters of fresh hand made pasta as filled ravioli and fettuccine, each served with plenty of typical sauces of italian cuisine. And no lack of music and good wine to come with a meal which anyone can afford, whether a tourist or not, thanks to the moderates prices.

“Like home cooked Italian”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

This should be number 1, especially since other favorites have recently closed. We eat there often and the carbonara and raviolis are superb. Laura makes her own pasta and the meals are prepared to order, making it as much like dinner at home as you could imagine. It is small, which adds to that feeling, but we have always found a table. All the dishes are rich and delicious and the prices are quite reasonable. If she happens to be full, the fish taco place next door is also great. There are spinach raviolis but more greens on the menu would be good and a better wine selection as well, I would pay more for better wine.

“Great!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

L'Arrabbiata is definitely our favorite restaurant in San Cristobal.
We went there twice in two days.
The food is great and so are the music and the atmosphere of the place!
Highly recommended.

“Great fun with wonderful pasta”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

We arrived in San Cristobal after an 11hr bus ride from Oaxaca. L'Arrabiata was the perfect choice for Italian comfort food, delicious hand made pasta with lovely red wine. We thought we may miss out on a table however early on a Saturday night we were lucky! We would really recommend the ravioli and the fettuccine amatraciana.

“Wow. Best Spaghetti”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Currently L'Arrabbiata Cucina Italiana is rated number 4 here in San Cristobal De Las Casas, Chiapas. I was curious how a restaurant with only three tables could be this high rated.

Upon arrival I heard the owner Laura singing to the music of Dean Martin playing in the background. So I new it was going to be a fun experience. After looking at all the choices I decided on Spaghetti bolognese with a glass of wine.

For starter she brought out a nice warm basket of freshly made bread from a local baker with some hot sauce that is popular in Italy and here in Mexico.

The combination of the wine and the hot sauce was perfect.

About ten minutes later my plate of Spaghetti arrived. It was a huge portion.
I tried to take my time to eat but it was just too tasty or perhaps I was just really hungry.

Because of the small size of her restaurant you begin to feel you are in her kitchen at her house. Very nice setting.

Will be going back again to try another delicious meal.
