The best Italian on the island I have been going to Sardinian Smile for a long time. It gets better every time i visit. The best handmade pastas and sauces, great service, delicious cocktails. Now they have added pizza that is exactly like what I...get in Italy. I tried 3 of the new pies and all 3 were insanely great. What a treat added to an already excellent restaurant. The service is always attentive and Silvia the owner is wonderful. They also have great desserts. This is a do not miss on Isla.More

We were just wondering around calle Hidalgo in Isla Mujeres and found this gem of an Italian restaurant run by italian owner Silvia who speaks perfect Spanish and runs a tight ship. The recipes are family recipes from Sardinia. We had the shrimp fettuccine and...the fish in foil. Both were excellent and the service was amazing. Highly recommended.More

Situated on the south side of Hidalgo, it is a bit quieter, which is nice. They usually have a solo musician playing a variety of tunes, I go here when I'm craving authentic, home made Italian food. You can really tell that it is authentic....I've had a variety of dishes and none of them have disappointed me. The Tiramisu is a MUST. It is a family recipe and I've never had anything come close to it. There is candlelight, beautiful table linens and staff that you don't ever have to wave down for service because they are constantly aware of your needs. I can't say enough good things about this place. It is good for solo, romance, bar seekers and families. The owners are fun and cheerful. I will continue to eat here during my long stay and when I come back, every time!More

Delicious fresh food and creative preparation. Simile Smile is a little pricier than most restaurants on Hidalgo but a wonderful treat. Excellent, well-trained staff - Marcus provided attentive and cordial service.

I chose this restaurant purely for its name. We absolutely LOVE Sardinia and when I read there was a local in the area, I had to check it out with my family. We loved our holiday in Sardinia 2 years ago!! The owner & staff...were very attentive from the minute we walked in. Shared a few travel stories, and received lots of menu recommendations. The kids loved the Sardinian gnocchi (which is not traditional potato) and remember it well from their Italian vacation. We loved the beef carpaccio with truffle and parmesan and really enjoyed the baked fish. I thought I was full, but managed to eat half of my husband’s pistachio cheesecake, which the owner said she made that day. The top it off, we received limoncello on the house… which was a great end to a fantastic meal!! I’ve read the earlier reviews with low ratings and I’m totally surprised. Have a chat with your restaurant staff, let them know what you feel like eating, what you’re expecting…it goes a long way and it becomes a more enjoyable experience for everyone involved.More

Service took 1 hour and 30 min just for food. Fish was sooooo fishy and old. Lobster was terrible. Niocci was unrecognizable. Made sure to state separate checks. They took and wrote down orders on separate checks. Waited another 20 min for check which came...as 1 check. Sent it back to separate. Came back separated but all wrong. Absolutely un heard of. Terrible all the wY around.More

Caesar salad was great. The Popeye Brusccestta was burnt and had no flavor. Pasta was ok. I would not return. Manager was kind and took the burnt bread off the bill.

I don’t think so, but could be wrong. We were focused on other menu items. They very well may....menu is right on Hidalgo when you walk past...easy to take a look at. There are a few places for pizza on Hidalgo.
