Had a lovely meal here with my partner & 2 children. We had a table at 5pm on a Saturday evening and it was busy from the start. The restaurant is warm, cosy & informal. The food was delicious & plenty to choose from. The staff here are brilliant, so friendly & chatty, especially with the children. Would recommend this... More

Another top quality meal again. Got to give the hard working chefs a pat on the back for the awesome tasty food. Also hands up to the tall waiter/server lad who wears the black glasses, got a cracking smile out of him this time😭😭(must of had his leg over)

This Italian restaurant is a hidden jem. We have visited on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. Our last visit was on my daughter's 40th birthday and although it was over the Christmas period they went out of there way to accommodate us adults and children alike. The food was wonderful and very reasonably priced the atmosphere was... More

You expect on Christmas Day that a restaurant will be rushed, impersonal and ordinary food. Not at Mama Mia!! Great welcome from all staff, attending to everyone's needs in a positive, lively and friendly manner. Although all staff were busy working they were attentive and keen for everyone to enjoy themselves. And the food!!! Nothing like usual Christmas Fayre. Everything... More

I have eaten in some of the top restaurants, and this has to be one of them, a hidden gem of a place, the food is amazing, the staff are second to none, don't leave it too late to eat there. Pure Quality, they deserve the five stars and more.

I visited this restaurant on a Monday lunchtime and even though it was busy we were seated immediately. The staff are very friendly and the food and service were superb. I can't wait to go back!

Once again I can't rate this restaurant enough, I have been so many times and cannot fault it, food and service and atmosphere is excellent, Pascal the owner has so much other stuff going on as well, Abba night, James Bond night, and dinner dance to name a few, would certainly check it out, good value for money
