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 !!!

“Better than Italy!!!”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

I was amazed that in Puntacana of all places I would get better Italian food than in Italy. My Risotto was better than anything I ordered in Venice, and my Spouses Lasagna was some of the best she has had. The food was fresh and the wait staff were professional.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

We stayed in an all-inclusive and came to Punta Cana for a day. What a treat it was to eat and relax at Mamma Luisa! We had calamari for appetizer, mushroom pasta and seafood pasta and the food was absolutely amazing. This was probably the best mushroom pasta I have ever tried (including visits to Italy). Caipirinhas (Brazil originated drinks) were excellent, not better than the ones we actually had in Brazil, but close to those and by far better than any Caipirinhas we had anywhere else. Such a difference from all-inclusive (even 5 star) food and drinks – like on different planet. Great atmosphere in the restaurant – we finally felt on vacation there! Thanks Mamma Luisa!
