Lots of little Italia joints in Tulum, but if you want the best pasta, cooked to perfection, come to trattoria romana. Place is owned, run and sometimes cooked by real Italian brothers (family). Great staff and tulum strip / cafe / restaurant dining. Once we found out about this place, we just kept coming back. Believe it or not lots of europeans in Tulum area and they gotta have their Italian. They don't make pizza just specialize in pastas (ravioli, spaghetti, penni, etc). For the price you pay in the states, the smiles and service and great pasta was a great value. Next time we are in Tulum, we are heading here.

I was just waking on the sidewalk and saw this place.
In the first moment I was not so convinced but I've decided to try.
Good surprise! Really good hand made pasta, the taste was so good.

We have been visiting Tulum for many years, but for some reason had never eaten here before this most recent trip. A friend who knows a thing or two about Italian food recommended it. She was right. The food and service are quite good. Try the seafood risotto. Very tasty and loaded with a variety of fresh seafood ingredients in a tasty and not too overpowering fresh tomato sauce. The risotto was cooked to the perfect al dente stage. Prices are fair and the friendliness of the service cannot be beat. They will also take MC or VISA which helps when you are short on cash.

After reading the other reviews posted here my family and I drove down to Tulum and loved our experience at Trattoria Romana. The restaurant is on the left side of Hwy 307 (the main street) as you're travelling southbound, a few blocks south of the Scotiabank.
We ordered 4 different dishes and shared them, and it seems that the Penne Vodka and the Spaghetti Cartoccio were tied as our favorites.
The staff was excellent, Alberto treated us very well and the gentleman in the back (perhaps the owner?) was singing Italian music as he helped prepare our meals!
Excellent experience, we'll be going back again before the end of our trip.
