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

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,...
