I have visited many pasta restaurants in Finland, but this is by far the best one. The portions are huge and there is a broad selection of different pastas and pizzas on the menu. The ice-cream is also delicious - it's a must! The staff is super friendly, but the only downside is that the service can be a bit... More

I did want to have seafood pasta, so I asked stuff. but she didn't find, therefore I took seafood salad as lunch, it was nice. but I guess other menus also looks great. I'd like to go again to have pasta.

The meals were huge for the price, service was quick, the food was ok, not the best I've had but not bad for a casual dinner

The meals are rather big, and prices, at the same time, are not that high as in other restaurants in Finland! Nice place to visit with a family or friends. Located on the market square of Lahti, so straight in the center. Good to notice that menus are offered in Russian, English and Finnish languages.

Nearly best Italian restaurant I've ever visited! Really good food and what a great staff! Always friendly and polite with few nice words. Pizzat are very good, but most recomment is pasta with Mamma Maria sauce! And ofcource handmade Italian icecream.

It is rarely that I do not finish a pizza, but last Saturday was one of those times. Ordered a Margarita pizza with garlic. No garlic of course and the pizza just was awful. It tasted like ketshup... even a ready made frozen pizza tastes better.

When Mamma Maria first came to Lahti, it was this small restaurant with a great atmosphere and the food was real Italian food, and it was great. Since it moved to a bigger space, it has been down hill. For once in a while I give it a try and hope that it's got its act together, but no. I... More

The food quality is good, the value good and the atmosphere is nice too. Located right off the main square in the city centre with ample parking nearby. The most international restaurant in town by far which adds to its charm. In fact my favourite relaxed place to eat in town.

Place was highly recommended by colleagues and also in social media - so I visited Mamma Maria during my business trip. Had an appetizer and recommended pasta and food was really nice - one of the best pasta dishes I have had outside Italy. Probably not totally authentic, but tasty. Price-quality ratio is really good, and restaurant totally is well... More
