Sometimes after a day on the beach in Cancun or the Riviera Maya, exploring Mayan ruins or a fun-filled visit to a jungle zip-lining park, all you want for dinner is a plate of piping hot pasta or a pizza with all the vibrant flavors of Italy. Whenever you are craving home-style Italian dining at Royal Resorts you’ll find plenty of options.

If you are looking for Italian dining at Royal Resorts your first stop should be La Trattoria Restaurant at The Royal Cancun. This intimate little restaurant offers a tempting menu full of zesty Mediterranean salads, carpaccios and antipasti to share for starters. Follow them with a variety of pastas, you can choose your own combination of sauces and add vegetables, chicken, shrimp or fish. Classic main course dishes include seafood risotto, scampi, chicken parmesan, fish picatta, lasagna, seafood pasta and bistecca di manzo or tender Florentine-style steak.

Alternatively, choose one of La Trattoria’s gourmet pizzas and be sure to save space for a tempting Italian dessert. Deliciously smooth and creamy tiramisu, panna cotta and fresh fruit gelato are all on the menu. La Trattoria is open daily from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. Reservations are required.
