Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The setting was only outdone by the food. We enjoyed two pizzas and two pasta dishes between the 4 of us. We will be back again this vacation.

Italian Pizzeria with pasta dishes and a few meat options. Rustic setting with wooden tables and chairs under a pergola outdoors, prepared by husbands and wide team. Can’t go wrong with the pizza! Steep drive up the hill on dirt road, though.

We ordered a takeaway pizza and tiramisu and both were delicious. My husband picked our order up and said the outside space was beautiful and that the owner was really friend. A must try!

We enjoyed every minute at this relaxing open air restaurant. We ordered a limonada blended with ice and lemon juice from the tree in the property.. so refreshing. We ordered the Monica pizza and the Vodka tagliatelle and both were absolutely divine. Everything tasted super...fresh and full of love. The limon pie is also *exceptional* and the servers were so so kind and fantastic. This place is a real gem. Highly recommend!!More

Great place with good value food. The owner is from southern Italy and build a beautiful spot in the wild with beautiful terrace and great italian specialities. Highly recommended!

We were seated immediately upon arrival but we were seated right next to a table of 12 that had a reservation and arrived shortly after we did. There were lots of tables further away from this group who were tremendously loud so it would have...been nice to have been seated further away. The Chef came out and asked us to get our order in before they arrived so he would be able to get our meals started before his kitchen was overwhelmed with 12 orders...that is reasonable but it made the whole evening a little less pleasant.More

Special place: we have returned here every visit to Costa Rica for the delicious homemade pasta. Owner is also the chef, and there are cabins available too.

This is our second time here and it’s amazing. The food, the service, the ambiance and they have a killer playlist. Definitely recommend! There are other restaurants in the area that are very “hip” and Mamma e Papas food definitely stands up to them, if...not surpasses them in taste. The bruschetta and salad as starters and both pasta dishes we’ve had were incredible. And the bread that accompanies is to die for! Visit Mamma e Papas if you can!More

Good Italian food is hard to find in Costa rica. Look no further. Pasta homemade, and all choices made by our table of 15 were awesome. I had the vodka pasta. Best I've ever had. Everyone's food looked fabulous. Wine and drinks were great and...service was perfect and so friendly. The location and ambiance were super relaxing and the view was beautiful. Go eat here.More

in the jungle of Ojachol. What a find! This is our go-to restaurant for dinner (make reservations). When we vacation in Ojochal we eat here several nights as I love the Carbonara. This is true italian food. Haven't had a pizza yet but that's for...next visit. The owner is delightful. A great place to spend a comfortable, slow evening enjoying wonderful food.More

We came quite late (just 30 minutes before closing time) to order a pizza to take away, and were friendly received and helped despite the time. The pizza was tasty and very generously filled. Thanks Mamma e Papa for that nice pizza!

It's a good Italian restaurant with authentic food. The service is provided by the owner (an Italian established in Costa Rica) and his family. Pasta, pizza and fresh fish were delicious and we went there for the second time.

Enzo & Jeannette have an outstanding operation here. Hubby & I are staying in a house in Ojochal, but my daughter & her husband stayed in a cabin here at Mamma e Papa with a lovely experience. We have now eaten here several times. The...pasta is delicious, & I especially liked the rich flavor of the cannelloni. I’ve also had the lemon shrimp twice, & the spaghetti bolognese is a large portion with a hearty meaty sauce. We had pizza night on one occasion, & it was wonderful, with generous toppings & a wide variety of options. Highly recommend!More

Amazing homemade pasta. Restaurant is on back porch of house. You will need Waze to find the place but well worth the effort. All of the food is unbelievably good.
