I dined here at the end of December with my partner and his family. Service was extremely slow and not very friendly. We ordered a couple of prawn cocktails, calamari, bruschetta and garlic bread to start. None of which were anything to rave about. For mains we had Arrabbiata, Cannelloni and a couple of pizzas. Both pasta dishes were enjoyable,... More

Visited as a family during the festive period. Among the group we tried fillet steak, a pizza and several pasta dishes all of which were excellent. The sides to the mains are really tasty - sautéed potatoes, creamed leeks and buttered carrots, all lovely and well cooked and couldn't be faulted. Unfortunately what let the evening down was the price... More

Delicious chicken, lamb and pizza for main course. Bruscetta and hot prawn and avocado starters. Great service and ambience add well. We'll definitely return.

A lovely evening for a friend's 50th - and we chose La Mamma because we've been eating here since we were children! Not a lot has changed over the years (none of us feel a day over 40!!!) - the menu, the atmosphere and the friendly service are just as good as they were 35 years ago.

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
