Perfect Dinning

A perfect dinning place to have Italian meal and have a wonderful evening with the family and friends. Good Ambiance and choice of vegetarian dishes and a good wine collection.

I regret the time when Sheraton was located by the sea shore... Now that the hotel is surrounded by high rises under construction, dining outside by the landlocked beach is a bit noisy. Fortunately La Mamma is located inside on the ground floor. The food is correct, the service is correct. Now that Abu Dhabi offers quite a large number... More

A small outlet in the heart of Abu Dhabi, La Mamma is now one of my favorite dine-in restaurants in the capital. We went there on a weekend, had to reserve a table of course as it gets crowded quickly, and we enjoyed the food, the calm music, and the great service. I had the vegetable soup as a starter...

Went there with a friend for lunch, the food was ok as well service. I was expecting more from an Italian restaurant. The atmosphere (I mean the decoration) wasn't really nice, not reminding me of Italy. In total not bad but not to my expectations.

Frequented mostly by expats and tourists. Service was spotty but generally good. Portions were adequate. Lasagna was properly cooked without being overcooked. Pizza was a better choice.

Went there once to try their pizza, which I found highly recommended on one of the leading lifestyle EB sites. Pizza indeed was good and fairly cheap with a lot of seafood included (maybe a little bit of squid though compared to other). Service was attentive and efficient, ambience inside was also quite nice. I would probably return there for... More

Though the restaurant attracts many Italian patrons ‎it lacks freshness and flavour. Had carpaccio ( evidently it had spent too much time in ‎fridge as it had strange brownish marks) and pizza (just ok as the texture of the pasta was not satisfying)

It's been ages since we were last at La Mamma and after today's visit I am asking myself why it's been so long. Lunch was excellent.
