really delicious. we split a huge salad which was really tasty, then shared a lasagne. Perfect amount of food. Nice and cool inside and the decor is cool - old italian style and old hollywood film shots.

Great Italian food! Best homemade pasta. Loved their Spaghetti and meatballs. A little spicy but really fresh food. I'm Italian and very critical of Italian food. We visit Mama Rosa's several times during each stay!

Amazing Italian food! Tried many dishes there and loved everyone. We go multiple times every visit. Their pizza, carbonara, spinach and cheese ravioli, lasagna, arrabiata and pomodoro - to name a few - are all to die for!!!!

We have traveled to Isla Mujeres 3 times and have come to Mamma Rosa EVERY time sometimes multiple times during each trip. This place is frequently busy and sometimes you have to wait long for your food, BUT the food is AMAZING and the servers and owners are very kind and attentive.

I believe they served us a frozen pizza. The cheese wasn't melted! The bruschetta was horrid. We couldn't eat the meal. The waiter was very sweet and nice.

This restaurant is for those who do not like to eat food that might be a little too much adventure in mexican cuisine. This place has the best italian food that the islaqnd has to offer. I bet you will not be able to eat all your entre so ask for a box for your leftovers.

Not only loved the bruchetta, salad and meatballs, but REALLY loved sipping chilled red Montepulciano on the grand Ave Hidalgo while the beach breezes blew and people passed by! Sweet owners were very accommodating of my "special" needs.
