“Super experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Today's visit was a leisurely stop on the way to Bicester for a shopping visit, this was my first visit to Manna Mia Jericho, the restaurant is situated in a very nice part of Oxford with lovely streets of interesting little shops and lovely restaurants.
The restaurant was very easy to find with sat nav and has very clear signage outside, parking is a little difficult due to a lot of residents parking areas but with a little perseverance we found parking not far away.
The outside is clean, bright and inviting with a clear menu box and container of paper menus available outside. Internally everything is very inviting with light music playing, very friendly staff inviting you in and catering your every need without being intrusive in any way.
The food is exceptional, lasagna is often so small you feel disappointed but in this restaurant it's truly generous, the pizza bases are beautiful, thin crisp and lightly floured with fresh tasty ingredient on top that are ample but not too overloaded.
The starters were also excellent, the bruschetta and goats cheese were on lovely crisp hot bread and a perfect level of garlic.
If I offered just one piece of advice, I would like the starters to be delivered on hot plates, food cools to quickly on cold plates and bruschetta especially can start to get soggy quickly on a cold plate.
Overall an exceptional visit with wonderful food and staff, I left a happy diner.

This restaurant was an excellent choice. The food was excellent but what really shone for us was very attentive and courteous service.

“A lovely local Italian restaurant with friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

The outside of the Mama Mia restaurant in Jericho, was clean and free of litter and looked inviting on an early Tuesday evening. As we entered there were only one other couple dining, but this swelled nicely to 6 or 7 tables when we left. We were met immediately by the friendly greeter, who was pleasant and helpful like all the staff here today. We were given a choice of where to sit and were immediately seated. Our server took our drinks order and gave us a recommendation of the Mama Mia pizza and the special, which I had, was the Italian burger. All our food sampled was very tasty and well presented and the portion sizes were good. The Italian burger was a nice alternative to the pizzas. The garlic bread and calamari and white bait starters hit the spot also. The staff were friendly throughout our visit and they really added value to the occasion and I would recommend you to try this place. We enjoyed it!

“lovely Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

As we arrived to the restaurant on a monday night we were approached by the waiter with a good welcoming smile , we were shown to a table for two and were offered the menus .when the waiter came back we were asked if we want to order our drinks, we did go for a house red wine what is complimentary on mondays nights when ordered main and starter (or dessert), it was quite nice. We had zucchini sticks and crispy calamari to begin with, both delicious, for mains my wife had a rigatoni molisani and i had a special lasagna with mushrooms, what was a very tasty and rich dish. recommend :-)
