super kind service

The restaurant's atmoshpere is super, every meal was delicious, the portions were huge. The staff is super kind, we got limoncello for free just because my gf spoke a little Italian. We were in Rome only for 3 days but we visited restaurant Mamá twice. I recommend it to everyone!

On our way to the Vatican we were looking for a place to have breakfast. After almost falling for the overpriced cafes where a cup of tea alone is €6 we found this lovely restaurant. We really liked the style of the restaurant, the staff was really friendly and the food was amazing. We had two really tasty sandwiches (with... More

Based on previous TA reviews my wife and I headed to Mama's for dinner. Boy are we glad we did. Mussels to start were perfect with plenty of grilled crostini to soak up the broth. Just perfect. I had the grilled entrecôte and it was far and away the best steak I've had in a restaurant in months regardless of... More

We came out from the Vatican late and stopped in as we saw some tempting Panini's on their menu. I wish we kept on walking. To start with the menus we were given only listed more expensive, full meals. It was nearly 3 so we wanted a panini on the board outside. When we politely asked if they were availabe,... More

I had the Carbonara as a starter and it was amazing the best I've ever tasted. As main course I had some mixed seafood which was steamed in Alufoil it... More

Things to do Nearby

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
