The coconut shrimp is the best I've eaten! 8 JUMBO shrimp, lightly coated and cooked to perfection. Setting is good with great people watching.

Great food, nice Italian alternative when we were all "Mexican'd out." Very good prices and location, delightful staff (with impressive English, oops) and cold white wine!!!! Lol. The head of the staff (?) "Danny Boy" was a great asset to the evening, I love a man passionate about his job. Love the area, great choice when there were 20 places to pick. Can't go wrong picking Norma's!

We went to this restaurant 2 different nights. First night my husbands fish was swimming in butter after asked for easy on the butter, my sister had shrimp and said it was excellent and I had the cordon blu with fettuccine the fettuccine was great but the cordon blu they smothered with a marinara sauce which really spoiled the dish but the staff was great. So we decided to go back for pizza which was great and drinks were awesome.

We decided to try Mamma Norma's last night and were pleasantly surprised. We spend 3 months in Ixtapa every winter and used to frequent this restaurant when it belonged to Deborah. It is now under new management and the service was wonderful. We ordered pizza and salads and the pizza is by far the best in Ixtapa. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back. We enjoyed this restaurant very much and will return several times during our stay here in Ixtapa. I highly recommend it to anyone who has been wondering about it. TRY IT...you won't be disappointed.

The last time we ate at this restaurant it was basically a "pizza place". The ownership has changed but kept a well known name in the area "Mamma Norma". Her name is the only connection to the restaurant. The new ownership, Mexican, is trying to reach out an attract a dinner clientele. They seemed to have achieved that.
We had a lovely dinner there last night. Two of us had pasta, one had pizza and I had enchiladas (shrimp). All of the meals were very good and we would return. But the highlight of the evening was our waiter Claudio Daniel (aka Danny Boy). He was delightful to speak to and discovered that he is a VERY industrious young man. He wants to learn the restaurant business and has been working very hard. He works every day of the week and also attends college in Zihuatanejo.
It made for a very pleasant evening and we will definitely return.
