We have visited this restaurant several times in the past few weeks. Our waiter Pablo always makes our visits enjoyable. He is very attentive and fun to talk to. Our favorites so far have been the focaccia prosciutto e burrata, lasagna alla bolognese and the margherita pizza. Definately a must try in Tulum.
