We liked Mamma Corsica's and loved watching our host Lucy work amazingly making her guests comfortable. This is a casual restaurant serving tasty fresh food - plus a good wine list. If you like a casual environment with friendly relaxed staff - you will like this restaurant. Recommended

Being in Avignon for the festival, we, a family of 5, managed to eat in Mamma Corsica twice. Both times, although a lot of people were looking for the same spot, we could make a reservation with the charming host Lucy and both times we were very pleased. Both the reception, the service, the food, the wine and the setting... More

malgré tous kes efforts du service, ce n était vraiment pas terrible. Peu de choix de vin ( mais bon c'était du corse). Plus grave, une nourriture vraiment pas à la hauteur abec une planche de charcuterie maigrement pourvue et un burger avec un pain très quelconque. Bref c'était peut être l'effet festival...

We ate very well at several places during our week in Avignon, sadly Mamma Corsica wasn't one of them. Taking the lead from other reviews and because we wanted the meal booked for a Friday night when the Festival was starting, we booked a table for two for 8pm. We needn't have bothered as a table for 4 remained empty... More

A warm welcome, fascinating food (especially grilled sea bass) and wine, wonderful relaxed atmosphere - all thanks to Lucy and their virtuoso chef. Together with the Palais des Papes and the Pont d'Avignon, Mamma Corsica became for us one of the symbols of Avignon. Best wishes from Russia. E. and A.

My financé and I had a lovely dinner at Mamma Corsica on a very warm June evening. We sat at a table outside on the quiet street where the restaurant is situated, just off the busy main square in Avignon. The food was incredible. Before ordering, we were given a complementary dish of beignets made with Corsican cheese and leeks,... More

While the menu is limited, there is enough variety to please a rang of tastes. We tried the burger (yes, a burger) and Vegetarian platter. The bread for the burger was a great memory alone. A Corsican red wine was tasty and reasonably priced. We will return.
