Mamma Corsica

It's a small restaurant, country inn style. The food was good but not exciting. The service was rather average.

For my wife and me Mama Corsica will remain in our memories forever: it was my wife's birthday (round number: with a 0 as second number !!!) and we decided to celebrate in this little but very charming restaurant. The waitress was absolutely kind, careful and friendly. We ate and drank very good and peculiar corse food and wine. At... More

Wow - there are not even enough wonderful words in the English language to describe how great our experience was at Mamma Corsica. (Perhaps I should learn French!) Lucy - the owner - was beyond gracious, sweet and hospitable. She truly went above and beyond to ensure her guests were well taken care of. The food was delicious and the... More

Just off the square near Des Halles, the food from Corsica (French island with Italian influence) was delicious! We had an amazing salad and cheese filled large ravioli- like pasta. Yum!

The food is great, the service is prompt and friendly, and we had a great time. It's a small restaurant, but convenient to 'downtown' inside the walled city. Highly recommend it.

We had a group dinner in this little restaurant and enjoyed typical Corsican sausages and meat as well as a selection of cheeses. All of that with a choice of 3 different wines from Corsica. The red wine from Patrimonio was very good. A nice place at a reasonable price.

It was my favorite lunch spot during short stay in Avignon. Good food and very friendly waitress. It is also located a bit sidewalks from typical tourist spots and never really crowded.
