Great Spot!

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

We went to this place because it was my grandparents choice. The food was passable meaning I choked down my calamari. Did we have desert? I don't know. The fact that I can't remember means it probably wasn't very good. The service was friendly but very slow. We enjoyed sitting outside watching people and the evening approach. We saw other... More

i had risotto primavera. Tasted like rice cooked in chicken bullion with mostly canned or over cooked vegetables thrown in. Cost was something like 150 pesos. Husband had chicken. Dry, no flavor. Came with a few potatoes. Service was mostly inattentive.

One of the big attractions of Isla Mujeres is the seafood. Mamma Rosa's was recommended to us by several fellow tourists. There was such an abundance of tasty seafood on the pizza that we had no trouble finishing it. On the other hand, there was so much linguini (as opposed to seafood) in the pasta dish that we took it... More

It seems a little random having Italian in mexico but I have to say it was pretty good. Everything was pretty simple but sometimes that can be the best right? I had a pizza and my parents had some sort of traditionak spaghetti that hit the spot. The noodles were al dente and delish. I love the corner wine stop.... More

Mama Rosas get no love but we eat there every visit and it's always good. The serves do a really nice job especially with the wine service. Give Mama Rosa some love . And have meatball.
