There were quite a few specials but I find it hard to go past good old lasagne and this one was perfection.

I tried this restaurant recently although have been in Canberra many years and had heard great things. My only regret is I waited so long. There was a small group of 5 of us but that was enough to showcase the variety of the menu. A casual place with good prices and great food. Must try it! It is BYO... More

I loved this little restaurant. It was a family trip but this bustling place had couple, girls night out and family alike. Family run, authentic and just an honest genuine feel about it. The food was delicious and ridiculously we'll priced! I would make a trip back there as a priority if I visited Melbourne again.

I have found another good traditional Italian restaurant in Canberra! This one is even more value for money! The deco looks kind of upmarket and expensive from the outside. The service is wonderful. The waitresses were friendly and efficient. Menu consists of traditional Italian dishes. The portions are big. We were full after bread and entree (egg plant) which by... More

Did we just strike these guys on a bad night? Well not for the quality of the food, absolutely fantastic mains and dessert. But the service was extreeeeeeeeeeemely slow. We sat down at around 7:30pm and as soon as our friends arrived, we were quickly dealt with for our drinks (BYO) and entrée. But they forgot to bring us our... More

Only in Canberra for a few days. We were looking for a place to eat that has a good reputation for good food, and we were not disappointed. Mama's has great food and great service. The meals were quite large so don't be surprised if you can't finish.
