Dinner with work colleagues

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

What a fantastic restaurant. An authentic Italian restaurant which could not do enough for us. As a family we are fussy eaters which can often be a problem when eating out. However because everything is made from scratch here it wasn't a problem. They even created a brand new dish for my dad. They food tasted amazing!! What stars!! Very... More

I have been coming here for many years, usually before or after a football match. The food never fails to please and the place has a certain unique character, matched by the warmth of the management and their team. This is evidenced by the fact that people keep coming back again and again. Thanks for looking after me...much appreciated.

Visited tonight we had mussels in a tomato chilli sauce and pork slides for starters followed by chicken pizza and hot and spicy pizza, onion rings and chips. All food and service was great, we would recommend and return

We decided to call in after a trip to the cinema. When we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation, we said no and the waiter turned his back and walked away. It was not busy at the time. So we turned our backs and went to Marios were we were warmly greeted. Sadly can't comment on the... More

Went to Mamma Mia's for the first time in years. The food was really nice and the staff were attentive. My only complaint was the table next to us was too close and the staff struggled to get by as did we when we left

Usually I am not too keen on Italian restaurants as I am not a mega fan of cheese (collective gasp) but after going along with some friends last Saturday for a bit of a birthday bash for one of my bessies and had a fantastic time!. Ordered a steak diane with chunky chips and must say the sauce was delicious... More
