Went with family for dinner and had a table outside in the evening sun. Nice old school service with a good range of Italian favorites on the menu. Excellent food with really delicious flavours.

We were looking for a family restaurant for 8 for a birthday meal that also served gluten free food and were recommended La Mamma by THREE different people. They all said the same 'La Mamma, without a doubt, best restaurant in Christchurch'. Not locals ourselves, we trusted the tips and booked for the Saturday night. The food was...Spectacular! Traditional Italian... More

We were down visiting friends in Dorset and stayed one night in Christchurch, a lovely town we like to visit when in that part of the world. During our walk in the evening we headed towards the Civic Centre down Bridge Street and over the River Avon and came upon this lovely homely Italian Restaurant - La Mamma. It was... More

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 😊
