Food is excellent. Staff is very kind and attentive. Love the lasagna, spaghetti carbonara, pizza and eggplant. Great food. Good value. Nice atmosphere. We eat here often and think it's better than some of the fancier places in Ojochal.

I'd recommend this place, nice setting, great views, very good pasta and bread, okay pizza, very filling. Home made pasta was excellent, as was the bread. Prices seemed quite high until we realised that the portions were so big - we didn't need an evening meal after eating here for lunch! Unless you're very hungry, I'd suggest one pizza between...

Beautiful open air restaurant in a rainforest setting. Off the beaten path but worth looking for. Italian dishes featuring pizza and authentic homemade pasta dishes. The pasta was the best I have ever eaten at a restaurant, bar none.

Tasty pizzas with a local flare, full bar and great desserts. Enzo will make sure you are well cared for. Service like you would find at a 5 star restaurant.

Good pizza and pasta menu, although the homemade pasta was a bit on the spicy side! Closed on Mondays.

We heard of this place since arrival in Ojochal, you have to make a reservation and is authentic Italian cuisine. The actual experience felt well below expectations; food was just about OK. Good service which you be recognized.

Mamma e Papa is not easy to find, but when you do, it's well worth it. Like everything in Oochal it is open air and surrounded by lush greenery and flowers. The owners, chef and waitress, are Italian and they do a classic Italian style pizza and a hand made pesto that is so good you want to bathe in... More

Mamma e Papa is another one of those fantastic restaurants in the village of Ojochal. The setting is beautiful, the service friendly and efficient and the food has an authentic Italian feel to it since the owner is originally from Martina Franca, Italy. We've tried their pasta as well as the pizza and it was all good. Highly recommended.
