Good Italian trattoria, managed by a wonderful Italian couple who really want you to enjoy their food and dining experience. Ate there many times, and was always satisfied. Thumbs Up for Sal e Pepe

Pizza, pasta, antipasti--you just can't go wrong here. I was lucky to come here with a big group to celebrate a birthday my first time, so I was introduced to this restaurant with the privilege of getting to try many of their dishes. Everything was delicious! I came back during my last trip and we didn't have a dinner reservation... More

I'm really confused by all the glowing reviews for this place. Maybe we got unlucky? Our pizza had big slices of cheap processed meat bologna on it and a very small amount of sad looking pineapple. The caesar salad was inedible, terrible dressing. The servers were all really nice and the space is pleasant.

This place is a like a lovely trattoria that you would find in Rome but with GREAT margaritas! The food is delicious. We loved our pizza! The potato,honey, ravioli was our favorite. Our waiter, Rigobert was so very kind, excellent service, and helpful with suggestions. We will definitely be back while on our trip in Tulum.

Reasonably priced. Very solid pizza (from a pizza snob). Interesting atmosphere inside, outside seating is right on the main drag.

Delicious food and excellent service. Our waiter Rigo was very attentive. We tried pizzas and they were like in italy. The restaurant itself is very nice and cozy.

We made a point of traveling from the ruins at Tulum directly to this restaurant, based off of the great Trip Adviser reviews. Prior reviews gave us high expectations, describing heavenly pizzas and Italian food that made expats miss home. We started with warm bread, vinegar and olive oil. This was the only good part of the entire meal. The... More
