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

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

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. Others think also food was good and tasteful, also tought that pasta they could eat more, so good it tastes. Restaurant was quite crowded and noisy... More

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.
