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

It is difficult to say if we enjoyed more the presence and the attention of Beppe chef and owner of the place , or his fantastic dishes, or the great location. Once we found Casa Nostra , we kept coming back. The fresh pasta with home made bread and daily cought fish are a special treat not to be missed.... More

this restaurant was part of our hotel La Palapa we had couple of breakfast and a dinner here although the food was good the price was significantly higher than other places and the food a bit too fancy for a rustic place like Holbox. Being Italian myself i really wanted to experiment more with the authentic mexican flavours as i... More

We live in QROO in the winter so we are familar with the local fish. Three of us two different fish dishs and we asked if the fish was fresh and what kind of fish it was, the waiter said it was fresh grouper. The fish has a strong fish tastes and was not tender. We were very disappointed.

We stayed at the hotel for a month and we tried nearly every restaurant on the island. Casa Nostra location and delicious homemade pasta was unbeatable. The chef Bepe and the crew really are passionate about good food.

The location alone is worth a top rating, you won't dine closer to the sea anywhere else in Holbox. "Peppe", the Sicilian chef is a cool character and a great cook of "italian meets mexican" cuisine. Breakfasts and Smoothies are great, and if you like seafood, you have to try the pasta with pesto and shrimps!

This place is not, what tripadviser makes you expect! I had a nice steak there once, but our following visit was really poor. It seems the main courses are better than the starters and desserts..
