We visited La Mammas on a Sunday evening. Very welcoming staff and a varied menu. I had a steak dish, perfectly cooked with a super tasty sauce and my wife had her favourite pizza with tuna and anchovies. Both very good. We'll be back on our next trip to Christchurch.

Shocking in every way. I have been dragged here kicking and screaming NO! At least three times this year. It's shabby. The food is bad and I mean BAD! Try the pizza I dare you. Frozen base covered in low grade ingredients. Tried the clam pasta this time - cockles!! I Can still taste the vinegar now! They even ran... More

We usually go for a quieter night than Saturday, however the atmosphere of a busy pizzeria on a weekend night conjures up memories of Italian holidays and apres ski meals with groups of friends, so we went for it. La Mamma was indeed busy, but the staff were attentive and the service prompt. We have had their delicious fillet steaks... More

We visited with friends the other evening, the food was delicious I had prawn pasta which I really enjoyed, I thought the prawns would have been bigger, they were more like shrimps. All the other meals looked delicious and we had a wonderful evening. Thank you 😊

A buzzing restaurant on this evening, families, groups and couples all enjoying the great food and the ambience. Friendly helpful staff, home cooked food, all pizza bases, bread rolls, puddings are made in house and you can tell.

Disappointing food...it looked and tasted as though it had been cooked by a school home economics class...amateur. The main courses are not a bad price but the desserts and beer are well overpriced. Won't be going back.

Stayed in the area for a few days and decided to visit and take away pizzas based on the great reviews. Only Robert below summed things up- starting to wonder if they change the food for those taking away and eating in?! Looks authentic Italian inside- but that's where it stops! Children's pizza are tiny in size but £8 price... More
