“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Very well prepared food with a nice menu offering some really tasty dishes. Had the calamari for a starter with some olives and they were both great. The mains were also really good, I had a pizza which was very fresh and cooked nicely.

The service we received was polite and quick (if a little too quick!). The wine selection is also pretty good.

I recommend if you're looking for a nice Italian restaurant in the area. Very reasonably priced food that tasted great.

“Great family owned pizzeria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Both Mamma Mia Pizzerias (there is another one In Jericho area of Oxford) are great. They celebrated 30 years in 2011 as a family concern and are still independent. And it shows.
great food not just pizza although they are fab, all under a tenner. The house pizza with EVERYTHING on it is £10.55 and like a bin lid!
Kids made very welcome and lunchtime special of main and a beer etc for only £6.95. Only downside it getting parked in both places but it is worth it. Go and forget those big faceless chains and enjoy!

“Hand-made pizza with interesting vegetarian choices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

One of our regular haunts in Oxford. Mamma Mia does (as of Jan 2014) a great lunch offer where you get a main meal (e.g. pizza!) and a drink for £6.95.

The food is hand-made while you wait (you can watch the pizza chef flinging the dough, which is fun) so it's easy to ask for something to be changed, and they're happy to do it. The quality is very good, Italian lunch place style, if you see what I mean. As a vegetarian, I appreciate that there are several veggie options on the standard menu, and they're a bit more interesting than usual. I particularly like the Fiorentina (apologies if I've misspelled that) which is goat's cheese, fresh spinach and black olives. Yum!

“Best Pizza outside Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We visited Mamma Mia Summertown for a Saturday lunch on our journey to Bicester, what a lovely restaurant this is, There was a real buzz about the place and with all the young family's out for lunch with their young children it reminded me of our trips around Italy, sitting at our table with a carafe of house wine and freshly prepared bruschetta I was transported back to Sicily.
The staff were wonderful, happy, friendly and catered to our every need without being obtrusive.
The food really is superb, we had a portion of calamari, a portion of baked goats cheese and bruschetta to share, these were fresh tasty and very generous in size, for mains we ordered pizza, one mamma Mia and one American hot, the menu talks about the imported Neapolitan ‘00’ flour, these really are the best pizza bases I have tried outside Italy, thin crispy and perfectly cooked. The Pizza topping we fresh tasty and plentiful without overwhelming the beautiful bases. This beautifully prepared meal with a carafe of Trebbiano was a perfect Saturday lunch, I look forward to returning in the summer when the large glass door are flung wide onto the street and outside dining area to enjoy another lazy lunch hopefully next time in the sun.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Great food, service was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was cosy and relaxed. Pizzza and prawn linguine highly recommended. Would definitely come here again. So many restaurants make you feel like leaving as soon as possible, and this was the complete opposite.

PS. You must stay for coffee!
