Some people seem to adore this place, others put it down, but the truth lies somewhere in the middle. Pastas vary greatly, and the reason is that they don't prepare them from scratch. So if a sauce lies heavily on herbs and fresh veggies, it won't be as good as a sauce with cream and cheese, for example. Their tomato... More

By far the best pizza I've ever had in Finland. Lahti Guide does not praise this restaurant for nothing. However, I found the menu too long, didn't even bother to read through all the pasta options but went straight to the pizzas which proved to be a very wise decision. The restaurant has a nice decoration and the service was... More

Mamma Maria is a nice place to visit with your family. It is a popular place and therefore a table reservation is recommended, you get quicker and better service if you have a reservation.

Mamma Maria is a traditional and pleasant restaurant on a good location, opposite the market in the middle of the city. The restaurant is popular among the citizens and it´s often full so you possibly have to have if you don´t have reservation. Although they also have fish and meat dishes I prefer their pizzas which are delicious. Pastas are... More

We were a group of 4 and ordered diffrent dishes. One of us asked to get alot rocket salad but got none (even though her dish consisted of rocket salad according to the menu). One of us ordered a salmon risotto, but only got 3 small pieces of salmon. I ordered a vegetarian pasta, I especially picked out this dish... More

I'd like to be able to say that I like the food etc, but it's not possible. The place itself is nice, but staff and food quite worn and not so welcoming.

I've heard a lot of praise for this place, but it seems that in the last few years "Mamma Maria" has gone a bit downhill. It is still adecent place for a lunch but definitely not a classy Italian place. The complimentary garlic bread is a joke, and my spaghetti aglio e olio was too oily. Still, they served a... More
