“Best Italian in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

The one rule to remember when eating in Tulum is eat where the locals eat. If you are craving Italian, walk downtown and you will find many Italians at Trattoria Romana. The food is fresh, the service is good and you will probably have enough left over for another meal. My favorite meal is the Rigatoni Gorgonzola although I doubt there is a bad choice to be made there. Mangia!

One of the best restaurants in Tulum. The food is just delicious. The service is great, they are very friendly, especially Matteo. You really have to try these dishes.

“Authentic Italian in Tulum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

We ate here because of the wide variety of vegetarian plates on the menu, and we were pleasantly surprised. We have spent some time in Italy, and found the menu and food to be an accurate representation of some of the sidewalk cafes over there. The pasta dishes have a fresh flavor and feel to them, and prices are mid-lever for Tulum.
