had a great night to celebrate a birthday. Food and staff were excellent however it was a little crowded making things a little tight for room which is the only reason I didn't give this restaurant an excellent rating. We will be visiting again.

We had friends visiting from Germany and booked a table at the restaurant, we have visited this restaurant frequently and always enjoyed the food, although it's on the top end of the budget for the food. Tonight we however arrived and our table wasn't ready. We weren't offered an apology, just told you can have a drink while you wait... More

This place never ceases to please me. You are welcomed into the place, the food is always right, not cordon bleu but simple, hot and pleasing. Had so many nights here I cannot fault any of them.The staff are always there when you want them and disappear when you don't - customer service is paramount. You don't go for the... More

One of the best New Year celebrations we have attended. The menu was varied and well priced. The staff were all cheerful, efficient and helpful. The drinks were reasonably priced and the disco excellent. Will certainly consider going again.

I have eaten at La mamma's for the past 5 years, I honestly believe that if you like 'true' Italian food then this is the place to eat. The service is very fast but if you want to spread your meal out the waitresses won't complain and give you more time. All the food seems to be home cooked and... More

Went for dinner on Friday night as last visited 2 years ago. This is a family run restaurant and all the staff are welcoming and very helpful. The food is traditional Italian and seems to be all home cooked. The garlic bread is actually bread unlike Pizza Express which serves up a garlic pizza base. The Lasagne was one of... More

Good food, great atmosphere. Service was a little slow, we had to wait for 40 minutes before getting someone to take an order for drinks. The food was definitely worth waiting for though.

Staff lovely, food delicious, atmosphere great. All our starters were tasty, Pizza's were so nice, yummy ice cream. Family friendly, our son enjoyed the food. Owner came and chatted to us, he was a very nice man. We live in Hertfordshire and was in the area for that night, will go there again next time we visit.

Visited La Mamma this evening. The food and wine are always good: genuine Italian food and lovely wines. The service is excellent. The music adds to the relaxing atmosphere.Candlelit table very nice. Have been coming here for over twenty five years and still enjoy it.
