Love this place!

From the views, to the homemade pasta, to the best rum punch on the island...Mama Pasta is beyond compare! Fabulous spot on Long Bay! A perfect way to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon!

After many years we return here and are never ever disappointed! Such a pretty setting and the most amazing food for a beach restaurant! Many so called high class establishments could learn a lot! Staff are great, food freshly cooked! Can't say anymore than perfecto! Long Bay just up from the Vendors' stalls, follow the signs and blue steps!

We had a pizza here one evening and it was quite good. The menu seems to be limited to fairly simple pasta or pizza dishes, but if this is what you fancy it does the job.

Mama Pasta is Nestled in between two huge all-inclusives, and it's worth stepping out and paying for a meal. It's the kind of charmed, rustic, local beach-front feel that you can't get in a commercial resort. And the food is great. The pasta is homemade and the crust on the pizza is thin and crispy. The seafood pizza is loaded... More

We escaped the Grand Pineapple to eat here and were not disappointed. Relaxed, friendly, great food and views!! Wish we had gone earlier (even though on all inclusive at hotel) as would have been regular visitors!! If you are in the area - GO!

Stop here and have great food. Baby and mama are lovely. Mama might not seem the friendliest at first but once she knows you are not obnoxious then she has a huge heart. Having stayed at the verandah it was a breath if fresh air to have fresh and delicious food in a beautiful setting. If going for dinner then... More

We stopped here for lunch after doing a snorkel with the stingrays - about a 10 minute drive away. We were the only diners in the place, which made us a little nervous at first. But no worries - the food was delicious and plentiful. We had seafood pizza and one of the daily specials. Great view of the ocean... More

Not a fan of Italian but this local restaurant is the best I’ve ever had and I’ve been to Italy. Husband and wife team of an Italian woman and local man make the best fusion I’ve ever tasted. The plates are full of food, half salad and half hearty meal, great for any taste. Best gnocchi, zucchini lasagna, goat curry,... More
