“Magnificent food and service”
Reviewed 3 May 2012 via mobile

I'm from NYC where I had try a lot of the Italian restaurant. La Vongola is by far the best food I've had in a long time.
It was recommended by someone at the hotel we were staying, and we are greatful she did.
We wanted to go back the following day but unfortunately it was the chef/owner only day off.
Can't wait to go back to Tulum and defenetely La Vongola would be one stops

“over rated”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Perhaps I had read all the over the top reviews, but was I not impressed. The food and the service were average. It was my impression but they have to work better on portions and quality. It wasn't bad, it's just that I have enjoyed this Restaurant.

“Looking for Italian food perfection?”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

This Italian restaurant is practically new in Tulum, just a couple months from opening, and it is just great. The service is provided by the owners who make it very close and personal. We ordered beer and mojitos for drinks and a carpaccio for starters, beer was cold, mojitos were just delicious and refreshing and the carpaccio was sensational!
Then went for the mains and got clams and the shellfish pasta and both dishes were flawless, the pasta is hand made and every ingredient is fresh, prepared "al dente" for a perfect result. We shared a tiramisu for dessert and it was to match everything else!
Definitively a place to go while visiting or living in Tulum!
