A very disappointing evening with friends on Tuesday. Pasta served on cold plates and the portion size not value for money. The red wine is rough to say the least. The restaurant was dead by 8.45pm and the waiters made it obvious they wanted us to leave. They even turned the music up loud so we had to shout above... More

Slow service, waited a long time for each course Sunday lunch very poor, mashed potato watery, meat was like boil in the bag and veg tasted like frozen veg. Staff seemed to concentrate on regulars/friends Place itself looks shabby and outside area scruffy Would not recommend

Wow! We visit Mamma Italia at least once every week...it is very close to our home and, thus is very convenient! I would honestly say that we are blessed to have this wonderful restaurant "on our doorstep". Recently Pascal and his team have introduced an Italian Tapas menu in addition to the accustomed menu and we LOVE it...! We have... More

There's actually not a lot I can add to what previous reviewers have written. But after another excellent meal there two nights ago I feel I want to endorse all the good things that people have written. This small, unpretentious restaurant was introduced to me by a friend who lives nearby and who is a frequent visitor to Italy. So... More

Visited with friends for an evening meal last minute. Restaurant was packed and after a short wait a table provided for us. We hadn't booked so this was good. Service was spot on and meals were excellent quality pasta, and pizza was brilliant quality. Only opportunity here was time it took for meals to arrive around 25 minutes for each... More

Joined 14 friends - yes, party of 15! - for dinner, 8.30pm. We were all seated in our own area for arrival drinks, and served nibbles while we per used the menus. The place was pretty busy with local folk, a good buzz about the place. The decor is not your usual swank but good atmosphere nevertheless. We all went... More
