I could not recommend this restaurant more highly! Wonderful menu, charming service and overall a perfect night. We visited for a three course meal for a double birthday meal. All of the food was delicious and the waiting staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The special touch was bringing out our desserts with sparklers! We will definitely... More

Excellent food, especially the pizza, but to be honest, it's all great food. Unfortunately the service isn't up to the same standard, and we had to ask three times for the background music to be turned down as it was starting to get to 'concert' levels, and honestly, that's no word of a tall-tale. For some reason, every time it... More

Was taken to this restaurant by a family friend and wow. Greeted at the door by smiling staff who showed us to the table. Menus were given to the ladies first then the males which is a very nice gesture. We all ordered different food and it came piping hot. The portions are large so do not eat anything from... More

Visited on Friday evening on the recommendation of friends. Lovely traditional Italian restaurant with cosy red lamps and warm soft furnishing. The food and service were excellent. We will be back.

If you like a cosy atmosphere, La Mamma is perfect! The food is excellent and the staff are very good. It is a good idea to book the table in advance because it is always very busy. It is located near the centre of Christchurch and there is a parking available nearby. We went for dinner with some friends and... More

It would be a good idea to book a table as it can get very busy in the evenings. We prefer to eat early evening so never have a problem with bookings. it is only a short... More

We cannot speak highly enough about La Mamma. We have been going there all our married life and always go there for any special celebrations including just for lunch every couple of weeks. The food is excellent and authentic Italian, which we can vouch as have been going to Italy many times for holiday. The standards are high and service... More
