“Great fresh pasta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We ate some of the best fresh pasta ever. Returned for pizza which was good but not Neapolitan. Next time will order the pasta. The owner server was also delightful.

“Best pizza in san Miguel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Hands down, Mare Nostrum offers the best pizza in San Miguel. Thin crust, nicely seasoned sauce and reasonably priced at about $10 a pie, it beats the pizza at most of the many other Italian restaurants in town by a mile. And, while it's not located right at the center of the action, it's an easy five-minute walk from the Jardin.

“Treat Yourself and those whom you love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

My husband and I have had the good fortune to have eaten all over the world. Lunch today at Mare Nostrum was one of the most wonderful, scrumptious, relaxing, elegant dining experiences we have had. We primarily eat a plant-based diet--and the roasted vegetables were perfect, with spices that enhanced rather than over-powered. The homemade pasta and sauces can only be described as being made with love laced with competence. We ate in the outside courtyard,where every fern is perfectly tended creating a green canopy --literally a consciousness changing environment..... We enjoyed the exchange (peace truce) exhibited between the siamese cat and parrot. The service was elegant, the music played supported the meal and our conversation rather than interfered.... We will return again.... and again and again...

“My favorite pasta restaurant!,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Off the beaten path and easily missed, this Italian restaurant is hands down the best homemade pasta to be found in San Miguel. Because we live here, we have tried them all and this is the one we come back to over and over again. Each dish is made when ordered so if you need quick, don't go..but you will miss the best pasta meal SaN Miguel has to offer. Small, intimate and filled with plants, there are 10 to 12 tables in the entire restaurant.The house wine is great. Two blocks down from Zacateros on Umaran, it on the left hand side with a very small entrance. Buen provecho!
