Good Service and Food.

We called in on a Saturday, early evening, post match and post a few beers. Nice place inside and plenty choice on the menu. The stuffed mushroom starter was very good, as were the pizzas. All washed down with a nice cold bottled beer. Good service. Very reasonably priced with some happy hour... read more

I visited this place last night with my fiance we had been walking for miles looking for a restaurant and we found this. We went in and was greeted by a lovely young man. The food was amazing and so cheap I would most certainly recommend the drinks may have been a little pricey. We will defo be back.

My wife and I are vegan and we have 2 young children who aren't quite, so eating out can often be tricky. Mamma Mia was recommended by a friend who saw that they were advertising a vegan menu, so we decided to pay a Vista. We were very happy that we did! It is refreshing to go to a restaurant... More

large group of friends, 25+ , on a Saturday evening. Pre-ordered the food which was good, no complaints. One mistake on order but not too bad and easily sorted out. Decent prices and good service all round. Bottled drinks were not cheap but that's to be expected. I had the steak which was okay but the medium was a little... More

We used to come here every week, but poor service and dreadful pizzas eventually made us decide to go elsewhere. LAst week we gave it another try. They must have a new chef because the pizzas - and even the salad - were much better. We'll be back - hoping for further improvements!

We thought the ugly decoration of the restaurant, including the plastic table cloths were charming in its own right. Thought the randomly flung cutlery on the tables showed effortlessness! HAHA! In Italy, where we go pretty much every year, a set-up like this mostly leaves us surprised with the authenticity and excellence of the food. NOT at MAMMA MIA! I... More
