A family run business that never fails to delight. Wonderful food and terrific staff. A must if you are ever in the area.

No where as good as it used to be when it was smaller and more a family run place, the emphases is now more geared to numbers I'm afraid

I went to La Mamma with my girlfriend's family for dinner and the only complaint would be there's too many great dishes to choose from. I was torn between at least 4 dishes I really wanted to try due to lengthy individual lists for meat, pasta and pizza dishes, as well as a specials list coming to at least 60... More

La Mamma is a traditional Italian restaurant in Christchurch. Parking nearby is quite difficult as the roads around the restaurant mainly have double yellow lines. The restaurant is quite spacious, with quite a few tables outside. The food is traditional Italian - pizza, pasta, meat, fish etc. The pizzas were not as thin and crispy as we would have liked,...

We arrived on time and were shown to a backroom corner table, which was squeezed so tightly it was difficult for us to move. Next to us was a table of about 20 men, all speaking loudly, which is what one expects, but not at the cost of one's own conversation. Bad start, it could only get better when I... More

La Mamma in Christchurch seems to have been there since I was a wee lad in shorts. A lively restaurant with the right balance of civility and fun. John is the attentive host who will look after you very well. A good selection of Mediterranean dishes all served with a smile and the best of attention. Never had a bad... More

Superb service, superb food - a really lovely evening. Staff could be more friendly and 5 steaks, all with different cooking preferences came out together and each cooked to perfection.
