Casa Nostra....on the beach is a Mediterranean cuisine restaurant & beach club with a hint of Caribe. A pleasant mix of two islander's culinary cultures ( Sicily and Holbox) able to tantalize the most demanding taste buds.

Better italian food than Marea in NYC

We only ate dinner there. Expensive for holbox but cheap compared to the US or cancun. The seafood was amazing. We had the clam spaghetti. Clams were so flavorful unlike any we had before. Cooking still is more rustic like your italian grandma was cooking for you but still better food and way... read more

My wife had one breakfast where her salchicha was just a really nasty hotdog. Our other meals were quite good. Service was acceptable, but they seem to be really proud of a realatively average wine menu.

Great breakfast, little restaurant, staff friendly, good food. And at the night you can go upstairs at the "peleones". The tortilla is very good with the spicy mayo/sauce !

We ate here once for breakfast and once for lunch, and were not impressed. Service is friendly, but the food is decidedly so-so -- though in fairness we did not try the pasta (not in the mood for a heavy meal at the beach), which others say is good. Indicative of the attitude is the kitchen is the decision to... More

We also ordered a side of spinach. Fresh with dried grapes, and nuts. Delicious. We have been in the cancun area for 10 days and this is the best meal we... More

I had clams & pasta with a very generous portion of clams. The pasta was fresh & the shellfish was great. My wife had very good pesto & pasta. We enjoyed a bottle of wonderful Sicilian red wine - Tola Rosso. I also had the Tiramisu al Limoncello & it was fabulous. Definitely the best meal in my life (and... More

Beppe prepared a wonderful meal for my wife and I. I had a homemade pasta with shrimp and some wonderful wine. My wife had a seafood dish and was very pleased. Location can not be beat, it is literally on the beach, steps from the ocean. We will definitley go back

Authentic Italian / Mediterranean cuisine in Mexican paradise. This is not your typical pizza + pasta parlour but rather a refined, cosy and wonderful place to provide an option to the local cuisine. Home-made pasta, Italian wines and freshly baked bread are complemented by a friendly staff and a chef that is ready to offer great suggestions. Don't miss it... More
