“Best Italian food in Tulum”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Definitely a must try in Tulum - they have Italian food for everyone .. Including vegetarians! Being vegetarian is sometimes hard, especially in Mexico, to find delicious food. However, la Italianita had one of the best lasagnas I've ever had.. Made with vegetables - main ingredient being eggplant. Along with the flavourful lasagna, it was accompanied by exquisite service by the restaurant owner (who by the way was serving & bussing tables, in the back preparing all the meals, all while he was topping off our drinks for us & maintaining a lovely conversation with each of his guests). To make the experience complete, I had the privilege to share this meal with amazing company and the sound of lovely saxophone music - live!

“AMAZING!!!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

The owner is an Italian guy and food is the best! I had lasagna, tiramisu and coffee and it was authentic delicious Italian. This is a small cute place located close to Scotia bank downtown. Prices are great too. Perfection!

“Amazing Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

I definitly recommend this place, It is kind of italian fast food, but you can really apreciate the variety of the real italian cuisine. I try the calzone with mozzarela and mushorroom and the margartia pizza and i was so surprised. The food is cheap, but with quality. and the owners are very nice. They have many vegetarian option. It is my favorite option to eat in town. I want to try now the lasagna :D

“Best home cooked italian in town !”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

This has to be the best lasagna i ever tried while in tulum, the eggplant pizza is full of flavour and the prices are really reasonable for the amount you get. The also have this lovely italian street food called " arancini" , a rice ball filled with diferent sauces and cheese. The owners are always present and really really nice. This is a pet friendly place too. Full of flavor, cheap and fast. Got to try it, i think this will be a bomb in tulum real soon. You can have brunch to dinner here. They also deliver.
