I had the pleasure of dining at Mamma Luisa's located in the Punta Cana Village last week and thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. I started off with a caprese salad and opted for Dried Tomatoes and Portobello Mushrooms pasta with a light oil sauce. Both were exceptional. This is my 2nd time there in 2 years.

This is a good place to eat salads, risottos or even some meat in the tiny so called Village at PuntaCana. Friendly staff. Though not willing to split the check individually when going in a large group. The food was good and has a nice outdoor place to sit.

Overall the place is really nice and Mamma Luisa is very accomodating and her desire is that all the patrons eat well and leave satisfied as it was our case. Food was great, service was curteous and fast. The only thing I can point out is that I didn't feel the price was fair,

Been there a couple times and generally a nice place for pasta. This time though I was a bit disappointed . In the past I've had an excellent steak there but for whatever reason, this time it was very tough and fatty and definitely under cooked. Definitely not worth the price paid. I'm not usually one to send something back... More

Mamma Luisa, over the years it has become a regular on our restaurant selection in Punta Cana, its natural ambience and personal family attentions make it unique, you will truly feel at home, fresh ingredients always and theres always a catch of the day!

This is a great stop if you want some good Italian food in Punta Cana Village (right by the airport). It is indoor/outdoor & family friendly. Also nice to take a stroll around the village - especially at night. It's very quaint. Mama Luisa is a staple restaurant for locals as well.

Description
The Mamma Luisa Bar Trattoria its a very special place, that surge for the passion and great cooking taste of Mrs Luisa Patrovita. Who is Italian as well and since 1960's as a destiny matter, has been related to this land as her own. Mrs Luisa is dedicated to this business among with her daughter and son (Rossana and Joaquin) who help her running the business. La Mamma (as is called by all her customers) arrived to the Punta Cana zone at the end of the 90's almost as a casualty called basically by her long time friend Mr. Frank Rainieri and the need at the moment to find someone reliable and trustful for managing one of the most beautiful restaurant in the zone...LA YOLA. located at the Punta Cana Marine.Then, after several years of successful management of this place and created a brand name...(Mamma Luisa).. became along with her daughter Rossana who had been arrived from Italy too, the idea to give birth that name with a new establishment at the Punta Cana Bowling Center that was just beginning to develop. The business opened its doors on May 11th of 2004 and since then and thanks to the huge support given by the customers not just locals but also foreigners that regularly visit the place, has maintain its development along with the great evolution of Punta Cana.At Mamma Luisa, without any doubts, the customers feel like in their own houses as well, and reflects the design of the establishment... A native typical house full of Italian details... it is a fusion of the typical traditional structure and the Italians as well !! You could enjoy a very fine wine or a very chilly beer, meanwhile listening not just a very good Italian music but also a Juan Luis Guerra Merengue...., you could see pictures of the entire Patrovita family at the different corners of the place and without any doubts will enjoy a delicious dish made with the very fresh ingredients and then after a BOUN APPETITO said by Mrs Luisa, who just in a very rare occasions (like a very deserved vacation) ...will be leading her kitchen !!!
