“Wonderful pasta, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Hubby and I enjoyed a pasta lunch (carbonara with chicken and also salmon fettucine) yesterday with a cold corona. Food was exceptional as was the service. Thank you a great respite in the heat of the day.

“real home made italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

the restaurant Trattoria romana is a small cute place located on the main street of tulum town.
the menu presents a variety of meat and fish dishes cooked in a traditional italian way with very good ingredients (mozzarella cheese, olive oil etc)
prices are raisonables.
the staff is very friendly and polite.

“A great meal and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

We had a great dinner at this restaurant. The atmosphere is good and romantic, and the food is really good. The pasta is cooked perfectly and the dishes are well spiced and good balanced composition.

If you want a break from all the mexican food, and want to try an Italian meal, this is the place for you.

“Just average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We found this place to be just average. Good, but not great food. Good service. I'm not sure if we just ordered the wrong items from the menu, but it was just okay. We loved Il Basilico across the street. However, there is nothing that stood out as really bad or really good. I wouldn't want to warn anyone away and would like to give it another try in the future.

“Still raving about this place 6 months later..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Best Italian food I have ever had - hands down! Fresh pasta, fantastically welcoming service, and great margaritas to boot. The owner was awesome and we found him always outside on the sidewalk welcoming passers-by to come and try his place (which we did twice on our weeklong trip). You wouldn't expect your favorite restaurant on a trip to Mexico to be an Italian place, but it certainly was for us. We can't wait to go back to Tulum again this winter and make another visit to the Trattoria!
