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

Three facts: 1. Waiter gave wifi password only after we placed the order. 2. Waiter swiped the napkin from the ice bucket on the ground (we were sitting outside) and put it back on the bucket with the bottle of wine. 3. Waiter didn't bother to serve the wine over the course of the dinner.

In town for Christmas Eve dinner, and this place looked good, and the menu appeared upscale. I ordered the seafood risotto, one of my favorite dishes. But how can you tell if risotto is done? I'm a former chef with the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, and worked under several of the great SF chefs, including Gary Danko and Jonathan... More

We stopped here twice to have a few glasses of wine at the outdoor wine bar. The wine selection was quite good, generous pours and reasonably price. The staff was very nice. We didn't eat but the food looked very good.

Best Italian Restaurant in Isla. Authentic Italian cuisine. Pasta was cooked with fresh ingredients, not loaded on fat. Just good food! Service was also very good, staff was very attentive and courteous. The restaurant had a great atmosphere, really well put together.
