Restaurant Review #2

There are so many great restaurants on the island, including many great italian restaurants, but if you want some great pasta, go to Mamma Rosa!

Located on Hidalgo, you can sit on the street and people watch or sit inside and enjoy the wonderful black and white photos of Italy that grace the walls of the establishment.

Our table started out with a Chicken Caesar Salad, and not only was the lettuce fresh, the cheese amazing and the chicken cooked to perfection, the dressing was absolutely delicious. One of us here at Up to Date Isla is pretty picky about caeser dressing, this is one of the best they’ve ever had.


Next up came the main dishes

One gnocchi (favorite dish)

One lasagna (delicious!)

And there was another pasta dish that we unfortunately did not get a picture of but it was equally as delicious as the other plates.

If you’re in Isla and you’re craving some homemade (yes it is home made from scratch- we asked!) pasta head to Mamma Rosa! The owners are straight from Italy and really seem to know what they’re doing. They also have a great wine and bebidas list.
