Great Pizza

The pizza was amazing. I ordered take away to pick up and it was perfectly done and ready by the time i got there to pay. Its quite easy to customise a pizza with your own toppings. The crust is perfect. They only have thin crust pizzas made in a wood burning oven which is the traditional way of... read more

This restaurant is attached to the Speke hotel and offers a variety of dining options. While it's focused on pizza, there are also standards such as burgers, fish and chips, and a few other options. The pizzas aren't great, but they are good, and the price is right (about 20,000 for a pizza). The outdoor seating is wonderful.

Mammamia's is a staple whenever I make it back to Kampala. Was a favorite when I spent summers in Uganda and still go back. Much of the staff is the same. Animal shaped pizzas are delicious. Good salads and gelato. They will bring you delicious samosas from the other restaurant as well.

I was staying at Speke hotel and the food was good. Too much traffic might sometimes cause unwanted noises and pollution but not for me as this gave me an opportunity to see how beautiful the country and people are. The Wifi was the best compared to the Speke hotel Wifi. But the service was just average.

I personally loved the food there and so did my other three companions, we had a double date there. The meal was well prepared and very enjoyable. I liked the fact that its in the middle of the city a few right next to Speke hotel and a few meters for Kampala Casino. Its easy to access but the parking... More

At the Speke Hotel and especially at lunch time the traffic along the road is adding unwanted 'spices' i.e. fumes and dust. Food? Mediocre! Service? At times wondered if there is service?

Try the Tilapia. A local fish which has an excellent flavour and is done very well. The Indian restaurant in the same hotel (Speke Hotel) is also one of the very best you will find anywhere in the world. Service excellent, and for africa prompt.

The pizza is good but the price is quite deceptive and the quality for the price is lacking. This place doesn't include the 18% VAT in the prices as does almost every other African restaurant. Go to Mamba's Point if you are going to spend that much.

Ate here and our party ordered a variety of items. The pizza was large and tasty, pasta very good and the calzone huge and tasty. Service was a little faster than in some restaurants in Kampala, but not by much. Nice outdoor eating although a lot of street noise even later in the evening. Everyone liked the breadsticks too and... More

Since I'm from Italy, I tend to be very picky about Italian restaurants abroad: too many times I happened to eat pizzas and pastas so bad they should have been served with a warning sign. Mammamia is so different! I spent in Kampala 10 days and ate there like 4/5 times: the pasta is hand-made an the ingredients are truly... More
