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.

We ate outside at Mama Rosa. Great food, location and service. It is located on Hildago street. Drinks were good too.

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.

I just don't get all the negative reviews . Good pasta good pizza good salads . Nice reasonable wine service and by the glass program. Great location , well managed. Ok I might skip the fish and the bread is underwhelming . I still like it a lot. Try staying down here a month and only eat Mexican!

Me and my girlfriend had a dinner at this restaurant. I ate spaghetti with tomato chili which were very nice. My girlfriend ate Pizza Vegetariana and it was the best Vegetarian pizza we've tasted. And we've been in Rome :) Great place!

Our first choice for a dinner restaurant was closed, and we had heard a few folks comment that they really liked Mamma Rosa, so we decided to give it a whirl. I wish we hadn't. Overall, service was lackluster, and so was the food. I had the linguini di mare (linguini with seafood), and my wife had the risotto di... More
