Great Italian food and excellent atmosphere. Make reservation for weekends and holidays, otherwise might be fully crowded. Try the home made ice-cream for dessert.

Italian food is very popular everywhere, but just like in Mamma Maria when pasta is offered it is not enough. I had for my lunch a pizza, it was tasteful and traditional Italia´s style.

Lunch was a disappiontment. Just eat quick and get lost. Minute steak on menu was with one word a disaster. Complaint was received with short arrogant laugh. Just remember please, it's long way to top but short back down. Pasta was allright.... But not any more than that.

Quite a few years ago when Mamma Maria was in a different location is used to be so much better - smaller place but better food.

Italian food is ver popular everywhere but just like in Mamma Maria when pasta is offered it is not enough. I had my favourite pasta aglio olio e pepperonico but the taste of chili was too slight. Restaurant was quite crowded and noisy as well at lunchtime in a saturday afternoon. Be ready to book table beforehand.Icecream is quite goos.

Restaurant looks interesting and inviting from outside. Service is quick but not so friendly or warm maybe cause they dont all understand finnish or even english (of course , this is orginal italian restaurant). Menu were very comprehensive : pizza,pasta, fish and meat dishes. Italian ice cream and other basic italian desserts like tiramisu. Lasagene was ok but nothing special... More

I have eaten many times in Mamma Maria and totally love this place Original Italian cuisine was brought to Finland :) It is even better than many Italian restaurants in Italia. Service is good, friendly staff. Starter is included in your meal. They have perfect garlic bread.
