good food and mostly impressive service

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... read 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

Four of us visited tonight for a family celebration, we were expecting an authenic italian meal, wow we were bitterly disapointed. We should have realised when the restaurant was empty, plastic tablecloths and the waitress was dressed in legging and trainers, not an italian in the place. Again we should we have realised when we ordered fillet steak and they... More

Slightly quirky service and excellent food - a fun place to eat and outstanding value for money. I visit Newcastle 2-3 times a year any make it a point to eat there at least once while in town.

I would give this 3 and a half. Service and staff good. A traditional old restaurant that's been there for years. Went on a living social deal and as per always people picked the most expensive. It was a fair price what we paid extra. The food was nice but if your looking for something over and above....its not quite... More

We've been coming here regularly for many years. The staff are lovely and the food is always spot on. Great value and it's nice to come somewhere with a bit of character. Lots of dishes on the menu but I always have to have my favourite which is a half Pizza Romana with salad! No-one does it like Mamma Mia!

I had a meal here last night with 2 friends, I had a steak and salad costing £13.95, it was one of the tenderest steaks I have ever had, medium rare & cooked to perfection. We chose the £13 bottle of Shiraz to accompany the meal as it was the cheapest and we are impoverished down trodden civil servants. The... More
