Description: Restaurant “La Siesta” is located in Tulum downtown, in the beautiful Riviera Maya. Surrounded by a luxuriant garden, La Siesta is a cozy and romantic place. The wide space can host big groups, organize birthdays and private parties as well business dinners and work groups.Our cuisine is simple but international, using only fresh ingredients and natural products and offering affordable prices. Our “pasta” is daily homemade: lasagna, fettuccine, ravioli and gnocchi. The fish and the local seafood (caught daily): lobsters, shrimps and a wide range of seafood that you can also taste in our famous “paella”.And the meat in the typical Mexican and Argentinean cuts, naturally grilled or tasted with the peculiar recipes of our menu.Last but not least the great pizza, obviously cooked in the wood stove. All the menu can match with our varied wine cellar, a refreshing beer or a special cocktail.We also offer the home delivery service from 1 pm to 11 pm; no extra charge in downtown and 20 pesos for each delivery for the hotels located on Tulum beach.

“Very nice, off the path local italian place”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have eaten at La Siesta in Tulum about three times in the past three months and look forward each time to a return.
A very broad menu with pasta, pizza and seafood. While they are best known for their brick oven pizza I like the Calzone better. Also the pasta in made on site and it is fun to walk in the back and see how the pizza and pasta is made.
Lots of seafood dishes on the menu but the baisc pasta is always good.
Ephraim has been there on every visit and you will hear more Italian, Portuguese and dialect from Argentina from the other tables than Spanish. It draws a broad crowd with reasonable prices, daily specials, happy hour and good food.

“Perfect pizza”
Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Located just off the main road through Tulum centre, this Italian restaurant has a broad menu, but the pizza is surely the highlight. Cooked in a huge wood burning pizza oven in the courtyard seating area, the pizza I had was delicious and massive! Service friendly, prices very reasonable, setting average. Great for a break from Mexican food.

“Fantastic pizza!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

I went to this restaurant in Tulum just off the main road and it was a lovely surprise. Had a fantastic pizza marinara - the tomato sauce was just as you´d have it in Italy and the staff were very friendly. Highly recommended!
