visited here both nights in puerto iguazu. with limited options that just didn't seem worth a visit we came back to La Mamma Pastas. Nothing fancy, but the food speaks for itself. Service is quick and friendly. Pastas are amazingly fresh and delicious. Highly recommend. Serving sizes are quite big so come with an empty stomach.

They make the pasta onsite, and they serve it up in huge portions. This is nothing fancy - a few tables inside and a few out on the sidewalk, but the pasta is great and they are very friendly. Highly recommend! Prices are a bit high but portions are huge.

Simple, delicious, fresh, generous. If the sauce you want is not on the menu just ask! And they made it for us. We hope to be able to go back tomorrow before we leave. Best pasta on the entire American continent without any doubt!

Let's keep things simple - Iguazu isn't known for food. The only specialty is local riverfish (surubi) so if you want to try that then go elsewhere (probably Aqvi). However if you want a great meal, the best value you'll find probably anywhere in Argentina and fantastic pasta, then this is the place. Particularly given the lack of choice in... More

The pasta is too die for. It's made fresh everyday and they have a selection of sauces to choose from. We've eaten here both nights in Iguazu. Portions are large and they give you bread, so we ordered a salad and a bowl of pasta on night two. It's very reasonably priced and the best meal you'll find in town!

As everyone else has said, the pasta here is amazing and so reasonable. You pick your fresh pasta and sauce and out comes a huge portion. Come hungry or share. We sat outside on a very pleasant night and walked away very content. One thing that has really stuck in my mind has nothing to do with food. There was... More

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

Just went there today for lunch, not even being hungry:) we were just out strolling and passed. Saw the dishes and that a lot of ppl picked up lunch here. We just had to try. Went inside, where there are only two tables, (+two tables outside) and ordered a linguine pasta with bolognese sauce to share on two. You first... More
