We called here around 5.30pm after a midweek trip to Asda. The Hollymere used to be our 'go to' place for something to eat after a trip there but we have had issues with it recently. I found Mamma Italia though looking at the top Sunderland restaurants. I didn't know it was there prior to this and perhaps they need... More

Dined here with friends midweek, early evening, in order to benefit from the happy hour prices. Don't be deceived by the outside, which is not particularly inviting because the inside certainly is. Even at 6.30pm it had a warm, welcoming atmosphere to which the friendly staff contributed. We were seated and served promptly and efficiently. The food was fairly typically... More

Lovely place, great service and really tasty food which is beautifully presented. Couldn't really ask for more! We tried to go on a Friday night without booking but it was fully booked so made sure we booked in for the following week. If you are going at a weekend I would highly recommend booking first!

Visiting my family in Sunderland we ate here with 3 kids. Food was enjoyed by all. I had a spicy bean starter and a beef tagliatelle main, both of which were a bit unusual but a refreshing change. The rest of the party enjoyed their pizza and pasta. Kids had a good time. Staff were attentive without being in your... More

Visited mamma italia purely based on its tripadvisor standing alone. We were not disappointed. Staff are very friendly and take time to explain the menu and specials. I had 3 courses all of which were delicious. Everything is also very reasonably priced. Cant wait to return!
