Visited 3 times during our week in Tulum. Ordered appetisers, pastas, pizzas and desserts and every single thing was delicious! The staff went above and beyond and made us feel like family. Incredible ambience, loved the musicians and paintings, and the immense international love written all over the front walls. I will return to Tulum and eagerly await my next... More

This wonderful restaurant blew us away being an Italian restaurant in Mexico. The pasta was to die for, the pizzas were heavenly and the service was prompt and friendly. Local musicians would also play perfect dining music on their guitars during dinner, which for us really added to the place. We enjoyed it so much that we went back three... More

First rate Italian food with homemade pasta. Very generous servings....we shared the tomato and cheese appetizer and could only finish half our pasta courses, which meant we had a great lunch back at our condo a few days later. Very cheerful service. If you eat outside, try to get a table away from the street facing the supermarket...the truck traffic... More

We enjoyed this place. The service is great and it's a relaxed place. We often called in after being out for the day just for a drink. So we thought we would try the pasta. Unfortunately it wasn't good. They make their own pasta which is good but they didn't cook it properly and it was too thick. You could... More

Have eaten here twice and will go back again! Calzone was wonderful and pizza was one of the best we have eaten! Staff is attentive and pleasant. Mojitos were excellent and beer cold. Outside or inside dinning along Tulum Avenue. Quaint wooden tables and chairs.

1. The service was slow, they took our order 2 times, the bread horrible. 2. The pasta was under cooked and bland and greasy. 3. The salmon was terrible. 4. The desserts a joke! They didn't even know how to do a typical tiramisu . The chocolate soufflé not even worth it. Pretty bad experience , we are so disappointed... More

Nice if inexperienced staff. nice spot even though it is right on the main drag. Pasta was good, but Mexico is a long way from Italy. Perfectly fine and reasonably priced, but nothing to write home about.

The first impression was really good. We were greeted by a very friendly waiter. The menu looked nice. However, the food was only medium quality. There were dogs running around that also peed right next to the tables. The wine we ordered was called simplicity and tasted as cheap as it sounds. Wouldn't go again.
