Description: Locanda Paolo, Italian Fusion Ristorante. We are a family run restaurant that just celebrated its 20th Anniversary. Proud to be a Downtown Restaurant.. we provide service to both locals and turists. The experience of visiting Locanda Paolo is never the same. Owners are on site and greet, serve, recommend and cook for you. We are a small and discreet restaurant. We like keeping it like that!! Let Paolo and Rafa help you personalize your own meal. "Food for the soul made with the Heart" a classy yet traditional Italian dinner.

“A New "Must Visit" Restaurant for Us”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We have been to Cancun approximately 14 times in the past 20 years. Each year we have a few must visit restaurants and then we also try some new places. On the recommendation of another time share owner we visited Locanda Paolo this year for the first time and LOVED, LOVED, LOVED it! The food was outstanding, the service impeccable, wonderful ambiance and Paolo himself was so interesting to talk to. Prices are reasonable for an upscale restaurant, not inexpensive but not over the top either. Save room for the homemade gelato which was as good as Italy. There is no question that we will visit each and every time we return to Cancun

“Amazing!!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Went to Locanda Paolo during our stay in cancun. We wanted somewhere nice to go with friends and it was perfect. The owner and chef Paolo came over and talked to us. He helped us decide all what to eat and it was amazing!!! No one had any complaints and we were so pleased with the service. I would definitely recommend it to anyone in cancun. It is an amazing atmosphere with amazing people. Best Italian food I have had in a long time!!
Gracias Paolo!!!

“delicious!”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

Superb service, wonderful dinner, in a very pleasant setting. Having the chef attend our table to offer the specials, of which there were many, as well as take our order was very nice as he would explain the dishes. Our group of 9 from The Royal Cancun were pleased and surprised when the owner arrived last night-greeted us, checked on our meals and bid us Adios! A perfect dining experience!
