Back to Ojochal this year and looked forward to Mamma e Papa! Their homemade pasta is second to none. Combine that with excellent appetizers and desserts and you have a wonderful night out. The service is extra friendly, prices reasonable and great atmosphere. Highly recommended!

The food and service are absolutely wonderful. The pasta is made fresh. They easily accommodated a no-tomato requirement. The pesto was outstanding. The wine was reasonably priced and high quality. We are sadly lacking in our Spanish language skills and that was no problem. Desserts were scratch-made and just delicious. Wow.

This is a find. It looks a little odd from the street -- after all, it's Costa Rica -- but the homey patio and atmosphere is a welcome surprise. The homemade pasta is awesome and we were told by some others that the pizza was great as well.

I have eaten here on several occasions and don't know why I have never taken the time to review it before. I have always found Mamma y Papa to be a solid dinner choice, not only for Italian food but just for GOOD food. The pasta is made fresh daily and the red sauce is always spot on. This is... More

We went for dinner at 5pm. It was a great time to go as all the birds were flying down from the mountains to the beaches for the evening. We saw many toucans and green parrots. The dinner was fantastic...true Italian homemade items. We enjoyed the calamari and green salad to start, then shared a pizza and finished with chocolate... More

Great quality Italian food in a beautiful parklike setting. Lovely breeze on the terrace in the evening. Book ahead. It can be busy.

After two months in Costa Rica, finally found a true Italian restaurant with wonderful food and amazing view in the jungle! Feel like home.

Hard to see if you are looking for a sign or light from the dust road, but once you parked your car and walk up you are welcomed by the friendly staff. We were the only guests that evening and enjoyed the food. Lasagne was good (though the plate was hotter than the pasta) and the canelloni with spinach/ricotta was... More

Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. Homemade pasta was cooked to perfection. Sauce a bit lacking in flavor. Try the Three Milk Cake...to die for!!

Never thought of having pizza in the jungle, but would do it again in a heartbeat! Sampled 3 distinctive flavors, all delectable!
