How this place can be can be rated as one of the better restaurants, much less one of the better Italian restaurants, in Tulum is unbelieveable. Where to begin? The interior is sloppy and insect infested. The food was barely edible. My pasta tasted mostly of salt and my partners seafood entree was luke warm and disgusting. If this food was served in Italian prisons there would be riots. This so called Trattoria is a discredit to Italy and especially it's namesake , Roma. Stay clear.

We were a little boring and just got sandwiches. Came with fries. Sangria was good. Watch the salsa, it was SPICY. Also they give you a whole appetizer bowl of vegetables, which is nice because they are fresh, but they were maybe pickled? Not exactly sure how to describe them. Not my favorite, but interesting if you want to try something different. The band was good the afternoon we were there.

They make their own pasta noodle in house. Best italian restaurant we've eaten at by far and the service is top-notch. A must try if you are in Tulum!

The food was incredible! The location was ideal, with seating inside and outside(which I preferred). The staff was friendly and the family who owned it, warm and welcoming!! Authentic Italian meals at a reasonable price. A must stop for tourist in Tulum.

Excellent pasta - at least as good, if not better than many I have had in noted Italian restaurants in London, New York and in even Italy itself. I'd strongly recommend the mushroom ravioli, although I am told that the salmon fettuccine was was also very good. Sit on the tables on the pavement - despite the proximity to the traffic on the main road that runs through Tulum - there's plenty of people watching to be had.
