Fodor's Expert Review Casa Nostra

$$$ Isla Holbox Italian

You can't get much closer to dining on the beach than this: at Casa Nostra, a little palapa restaurant, water laps just below the tables on the sandy shore. A creative menu created by its Sicilian chef, Giuseppe Genovese (commonly known as "Beppe"), blends Italian, Mediterranean, and Caribbean cuisine. Locals gather for seafood pasta, grilled lobster, octopus salad, and fresh ceviche, all bathed in garlic and olive oil. Breads, sausages, and pizzas are made from scratch in the small kitchen where Beppe works his magic. The pizza topped with smoked ham, mozzarella, and arugula makes a perfect starter for two. This is the only spot on the island where you'll find authentic espresso, sorbet, and tiramisu.
