Me and my partner had a gorgeous meal here tonight! I'm vegan and had read previous reviews about the vegan food- they have a special vegan menu with so much choice including fab dairy free ice cream and brownies! I had the potato skins to start and the creamy broccoli and mushroom carbonara and it was delicious! They even had... More

We went as part of a group social with "NE Veggie Socials" group to try the new vegan menu here. We were not disappointed. Great selection of starters, mains and deserts, in fact spoilt for choice. Food was very good, well seasoned, not greasy, and lots of flavor. Also the vegan choices were very well put together we were not... More

I have been a vegan for about 2 years now mainly for health reasons and have always struggled to find that one restaurant where the staff don't almost seem to groan when you mention the dreaded V word. Heard from a few friends that there was this amazing little Italians in newcastle which though it was a little retro made... More

A little while ago our office in the centre of newcastle received some flyers about a restaurant called Mamma Mia's doing a discounted delivery service to offices in the area. Thought we would give it a go and WOW! Delicious thin base ham and pineapple (Dont judge) and a side of cheesy garlic bread that melted in the mouth. Must... More

Having been before I wasn't expecting a top class restaurant. Previously it had been good food at good prices in a cafe type environment. I was expecting it to be similar but was shocked at how much it's gone back. The food was very mediocre and the service really poor. The final straw came after waiting about 20 mins for... More

I must admit I have a slight soft-spot for the confused and nostalgic decor of certain anglo-Italian restaurants. The wine bottle's escaping from the plaster, mix-mashed art lining the walls and good old red + white tablecloths just do it for me sometimes. Unfortunately, the food served to us at this particular restaurant has the same charm, taste and character... More

Went for a birthday meal with my family. Food was delicious, couldn't fault any of it. Didn't wait too long, nice and hot. Friendly staff. Good service. The only very slight negative comment would be they could turn the heating up a notch to make it a bit more "cosy".

Mama mias use to do amazing pizzas, but has gone massively down hill. The pepperoni pizza base was hard, burnt and inedible. They forgot to put the sauce and the calzone, I asked for it to be put on and it came back swimming in it which made it soggy. Worst food I've had in a while. Would not recommend... More

Hadn't been here in years and disappointing how far it's slipped from the Mamma Mia I used to know. Boshetto pizza was lukewarm crunchy base and not worth the money, pizzas here used to be fantastic. Not now, sorry.
