The food and service is always very good and the restaurant itself has great character as well. Also, the wine bar attached is an ideal place to have have a drink before dinner or to go to end the evening. One of our favourite Sunderland eating places.

Food was OK we did feel a bit rushed into making our choices the beer before we went into the meals was terrible and a bad stomach all day the next day

Took me a little while to find this place cos it actually looks like a pub from the outside, but inside is probably one of the most cosiest Italian restaurants I've ever been to. Staff are always friendly and help contribute to the lovely atmosphere this place has. Food is always amazing as well. Will definitely be back!

I have been eating here for the last 4 years and I have not one negative comment. The food is absolutely first class, by far the best Italians in Sunderland. Do not be put off by exterior, although this has changed since taking over both the old bar. You must visit but I recommend you book. Best Italian in Sunderland!

From pasta to pizza, and even desserts, everything is filled with flavour! Honestly the BEST place in the whole of Sunderland! They serve tonnes of lovely meals that you can never get sick of, I would recommend a arrabbiata and for a dessert a chocolate cake with ice cream. Well done to Pascal and all of the other staff that... More

We visit Mamma Italia regularly...initially, because it's close to our home - but now, because we are massively impressed by the quality of the food, the splendid service from the exceptional staff and the superb value for money. This evening I had a magnificent scallop starter followed by a whole lobster (Thermidor) which should have cost a lot but was... More

Another lovely family visit to this great restaurant. Food was excellent all the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a Monday night and was very busy this didn't make any difference in service or quality! With having 2 steaks ordered we had the Monday night special if free bottle of house wine. Most certainly will keep going regularly... More

Been for Sunday lunch today, it was lovely. Cream mash, chicken breast, runner beans, peas, carrots, broccoli, boiled potatoes, tasty gravy and a proper homemade Yorkshire pudding. Atmosphere was so relaxing and friendly. Staff were

Food was again superb on a very busy Friday night service. This was topped off by being served by the Sunderland Italian Restaurant King Marcello himself!! Great trip down memory lane with the master himself!! The bar area is a great place place to chill before and after....
