Think gnocchi is decadent? You have not lived until you try this gnocchi stuffed with gorgonzola and served in an amazing butter sauce. Justt allow it to sit on your tongue a moment before you bite into the gorgonzola filling I do not need to say more.

On our first night on Isla Mujeres, we had arrived late and were exhausted. We went to Mamma Rosa and had a nice meal. It wasn't the best meal ever, but it wasn't bad, either. We started with a Caesar salad and a caprese salad. The Caesar had a lot of dressing on it, but was a decent salad. The... More

Great outdoor seating in fun, active area of town. Service was good. Was craving pizza and it was good (not excellent). Their sangria was delicious.

Great Hildalgo Ave centro location. We ate here on NYE when Hildalgo was really packed and every restaurant on the street was full. They have a really great atmosphere here. The risotto and pizza were just OK. The sangria was good though.

Service slow and disorganized. I had the octopus which was overcooked and my husband had the lasagna which managed to be both burned and cold by the time it arrived at our table. We were looking forward to a finner dinning experience on the island but this restaurant did not deliver. On a positive note the wine list was better... More
