This place is my new pasta emporium while on Isla Mujeres. Sardinian Smile is on the main drag of Hidalgo just north of the town square zocalo. The decor It is fresh and modern with indoor and outdoor seating. The appetizers? We selected the same ones: the octopus and potato salad is hyper-tasty with tender succulent octopus and wonderful potatoes. It is addictive. The Caesar salad at first looks and seems under-dressed ... until the cheese kicks in with the crunchy Romaine. Wow! Entrees are superb too. Gnocchi in lobster sauce is beyond. The fettuccine with shrimp and mushrooms is the owner's mother's recipe and it is glorious. The lasagna is stunning. There is something about homemade pasta that enters another dimension of taste. A small but nice wine list has a Pinot Noir that is red enough for meat but light enough for seafood. The owner and her maitre d' are friendly and know the menu well. Sardinian Smile is a must do and do again while on Isla Mujeres. The food is so good I forgot to take photos.
