Nice quaint place with very pretty grounds. Very good food, some of the best pizza around. the owners and staff are amazing, service is always excellent! A small place so reservations might be a good idea but not required.

We had dinner at the Mamma e Papa. The owners are extremely friendly and offer great service. We ordered salad, home made pasta, the pork meat, calamari and lemon pie. Excellent food for a reasonable price. Highly recommended for Italian food.

This restaurant is touted for the homemade pasta. Problem is that the pasta is thick and gummy. The sauces are bland. The canalone pasta was better than the string stuff. Setting is nice but one in our group felt like we were in a gas...More

On our first night in Ojochal we decided to go Italian in the rainforest. The rain was relentless and the food and service was just as plentiful. We are still getting used to "finding" our footing as we "enculturate" to the driving over narrow bridges...More
