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.

My husband and I visited La Mamma in Christchurch on a Thursday evening and we enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The restaurant was busy which is always a good sign, the staff were friendly and attentive and the food good. This was our first visit and we will definitely return.

My wife and I visited La Mamma on Thursday 26th June and wish we hadn’t. We arrived at about 7pm to a large restaurant which had three other tables with customers (so the restaurant was virtually empty) and we were asked if we had booked! My wife had Minestrone Soup for a starter and I had the Bruschetta. My wife’s... More

Reasonably priced food, best lamb shanks and veg I have ever tasted. Always make a trip to this lovely place whenever I visit Bournemouth.
