Hard to spot quality place located in a back alley. Very friendly and observant (not always the case in France ...) staff that spoke good English, kept our bread basket and water bottle constantly filled, recommend an excellent local wine and so on. The food was also excellent so we all left well satisfied ...

It could be only a bad day as this restaurant had good reviews but our experience was really bad. Food took ages to arrive, meat arrived rare when asked for mid to well done; fish with muscatel wine was tasteless... Real disappointment!

Little gem in a hidden street. Small menu but freshly made. Verry friendly staff. Can sit outside and not be troubled by passage. Fish soup was very tastefull. Wine of the month was recommodated and was excellent. Will come back.

Everything is shut on a Sunday night in Ajaccio but this place is open and everyone was there! Crowded into an alley and so busy the waitresses were running out and in at high speed. Lovely seafood, we all had sea food, langoustines, sea bass, gambas flambees. Cooked just right. Italian themed desserts, with a Corsican twist.

We have been in venice for 3 days and were sick of getting asked into places that all sold the same food! We came across Da Mama which is nicely tucked away but still easy to find. The food and service were the best we had. Would highly recommend the carbonara 👌🏻👌🏻

My wife and I had dinner here one night. The waiters were friendly and very efficient in serving and cleaning up after each serving. The inside was like some old manor house and was very nice. We each had one of the le menu selections which came with starter, main course and dessert. I had the goat and my wife... More

We had a wonderful family meal at this quaint restaurant that featured a wide selection of Corsican specialities. Although we had no reservation and the evening was cool, we took a table in the outdoor courtyard that turned out to be lovely.

We were the only guests to eat outside on a cool April evening, the inside tables were all busy, but we enjoyed our meal very much. Atmosphere is great in this pedestrian small street winding down right through the restaurant. Our meal was delicious, though I wish I had ordered fish instead of the quails that were a bit dry....

Despite the huge number of people having dinner there, the quality of food and service were very good. We ate in the small alley outside the restaurant and were positively impressed by the menu, which offers traditional Corsican dishes with a refined touch. Not cheap, but worth it!
