Came here last night, food and service amazing as always and had a great time. Will definitely keep coming back again and again. Recommend getting garlic tomatoes on your pizza, they are amazing. Also the garlic cheese bread is the best garlic cheese bread ever, full of flavour and just, well awesome!

I've been a regular in this restaurant for over 10 years, and I'm yet to have anything but a great experience. The majority of the staff have remained unchanged over the years, something many eateries would kill for... and they really know their stuff. The menu has been streamlined recently to make ordering that much easier (the choice of fresh... More

A colleague and myself popped in here midweek. We were sat quickly and the service could not be faulted. The food however could be. I had some of the greasiest and gristle filled wings imaginable and my colleague was very dissapointed with the cheesy garlic bread as it looked like something my 3 year old would put together. Onwards and... More

The pizza is very poor, doughy and they skimp on toppings. They do not even cover with cheese and most just has tomato sauce on it, so skimpy are they with toppings. I know times are tough and maybe they need to use less dough or cook it properly and they must give fair toppings for what people pay for.... More

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your meal. The wings are cooked to order and I am sorry that you found them greasy. Our pizza's are all freshly hand made, there can be some variances in product due to the handmade nature. We do not count each piece of pepperoni etc like the chains but leave the aesthetics to the chef,... More

Visited this Mamma's last night along with my partner. We ordered the nachos each to start then followed by a a veggie pizza for myself and a Matador for the lady. Both enjoyed it very much, hit the spot. The only downside was the seats are very tightly compacted together so a bit of a squeeze. Overall though it's a... More

We've been eating here for more years than I want to count and the place never changes. Paul, who owns the restaurant, set out his standards and way of doing things right at the beginning and has trained his staff not to vary from them. As a result, no matter when you eat there the quality is always superb, the... More

Visited last week with my ten-year-old daughter. A decent range on the menu to keep us both happy, with good gluten-free options too (I have coeliac disease), including on the dessert menu. Friendly staff, and very child-friendly: crayons and activity sheets while they wait for food, and a small free gift when they leave. We went in the early evening... More

The service we received at Mamma's was one of the most pleasant restaurant experiences I have had. It really was excellent. I think the food needs a little more flavor, be a little more adventurous. Even the spicy tomato sauce I ordered to make my pizza more zingy, wasn't spicy enough - and I eat a lot of spicy food.
