I went to this restaurant yesterday night with my friends. The place is nice and cute, customers are kind. Nevertheless the food is not so bad but probably it's not my favourite. I found good Mexican rice, meat,...

I have been to Mamacita's for the first time yesterday. I shared a plate of Nachos with Chorizo and the combo meal with the 2 tacos and 1 burrito, so let's say I had half a starter and half a main, but after that I was really full! I also tried the Quesadillas plate and the Big Mix (if I... More

I have eaten in Mexican restaurants all over Italy, around Europe hoping to have an authentic Mexican meal and Mamacitas offers that! The restaurant, the food, colors, and staff are what make this such a great place. The owner Desiree is very welcoming and she goes out of her way to make sure you are at home in her wonderful...

The food is excellent and huge portions. The staff really friendly. The place in Genova for Mexican food. And Desirée's chocolate cake is to die for!

I came here with a friend of mine, and my Mum who was visiting and we all loved it. We were greeted with a smile from all the wait staff and the service was quick and efficient, even on a very busy Friday night (lucky we booked). Still, nobody tried to rush us, we were were able to soak up... More

Sorry guys, but I've been to this restaurant several times because I adore Mexican cuisine and I kept hoping one day it will be good. The decor and ambiance is fantastic. However, the food is definitely lacking in taste. The salsa and "guacamole" are clearly from a jar. It is so easy to make guacamole that I'm flabbergasted why a... More

This place is great! I'm from Texas living in genoa for a while and this is the closest I've felt to home. The staff is very friendly and very accommodating to your requests. You get free water with your meal and there is wifi! I had the chicken fajita that was the perfect savory sensation that I've been dreaming of... More

This place used to have delicious food, but the last time we went it was cold and not as great as usual. I've hear they were trying out a new chef and are considering changing back to the old one, so I will definitely to back once they do! Until then, I'll unfortunately stay away though. Please change back to... More

One of the few mexican restaurants in Genoa. I can say medium quality in general. They do not serve strawberry frozen Margarita that is a "must" for me in Mexican restaurants. We will be back in case we want a taste of Mexican cuisine close to home.

The venue is great: a little corner of mexico in downtown genoa. The staff is very friendly and efficient and the food is great. I strongly recommend it.
