Over his many years in Los Cabos, Italian-born chef Matias Forte has proved himself a formidable ambassador. As chef of Romeo & Julieta in downtown, he has become—in many ways—the face of Italian dining. And, with dishes like bucattini al ragu and papardelle al funghi, he does his homeland proud. Meat lovers will enjoy Forte’s grilled baby lamb chops, and pork belly cooked for 36 hours served with beer gravy. Two new salads are offered along with the favorite Caesar salad prepared at table. Tortellini stuffed with king crab is a new item served in a light seafood sauce, and pizza lovers will be pleased to see a new variety with smoked salmon. He’s also trying to win over Los Cabos residents and visitors when it comes to other aspects of Italian life. He’s created a new wine list, with more Italian wines and more choices at the best prices. As he says, “In Italy, wine is like water for the Italian family. It may be Cabo, but for a couple of hours, come to Romeo & Julieta and enjoy authentic Italian fare like an Italian.” With a choice of dining rooms and a beautiful patio open to the stars, it is not difficult to find a romantic spot to celebrate occasions big and small.
