If you are a foodie and you are in the area of Ojochal, Costa Rica you'll want to eat at Mamma e Papas. Reservations are required as there isn't a lot of seating at this quaint restaurant. Waite staff speaks good English and are extremely attentive. Everything on the menu is worth trying at least once.

We went for two dinners over the span of 2 weeks. Both times, the service and food were excellent. The ambiance was great too...nice and relaxing after a day in the sun. The portions were very generous and leftover pizza made for a great lunch the next day. Oh, and don't forget to leave room for dessert! The 'lemon pie'... More

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
