La Mamma is a pasta shop with a few tables inside so you can also order food a la carte. We really enjoyed our meal and also took some pasta home to cook for later. I wish we had discovered this place earlier during our stay in Puerto Iguazu!

This place is a must visit for lunch in iguazu! They have a range of home made pastas and sauces to choose from. We shared the pappardelle style pasta with pesto - highly recommend. Then ordered some chicken and beef empanadas - also delicious! Friendly service, well priced, tasty and good portions. All the things you want in a restaurant... More

This place was not much to look at but the food was wonderful, best pasta I've eaten in a long time and the staff were friendly and helpful. Also the food is very cheap, we got two empanadas, two pasta dishes & beer for $280 peso.

This overlooked jewel of the town does not have the touristy allure you'll find in other places--large signs in English and buffets. But the pasta here is quite possibly the best I've ever had in my life! The service is great and the quaint and intimate space is ideal for a quiet dinner out. You can choose your type of... More

Excellent empanadas to go!!! It's a very cute place with great empanadas and great prices! We had the carne, corn, and pollo empanadas, which they even heated up for us. Pesos only, I believe.

Definitely did not expect to find such an amazing pasta dish when we spent the weekend in Iguazu, but can honestly say it was some of the best I've ever had in my life, let alone in Argentina. Incredible food, nice wine, cheap prices, and friendly people working there - it's more set up as a place to order food... More
