We came on our last night after a great conversation with a waiter the day before who assured us they did gluten free pasta and we’d regret not coming! He was absolutely right, the GF pasta with steak was delicious and the pizza was excellent...too, great location in the Old Town square. Great cocktails too, we had the pink gin one which was fab!More

Food was really nice. Service friendly. Reasonable prices especially for the main square. Service was a little slow but it was busy and we weren’t in a rush so it was fine.

What a great restaurant. Excellent, friendly service. The polish white wine was lovely. The bruschetta was exceptional as was the tagliatelle with chicken, sundried tomato, spinach and garlic cream sauce. The chocolate pudding was another excellent choice. Very reasonably priced.

I ordered PAPPARDELLE CON FILETTO Dl MANZO , the taste was sunny and pasta was dry. Meat seemed to be alright at the beginning but there was lot of sauce added. After 20 minuted i had symptoms of food poisoning so our plan for rest...of the day in Cracow was wasted. I have not eaten anything before that dish for couple hours.. it is difficult to compensate the fact, end of my stay in Cracow was ruined. Reading some other reviews and problem of food being not fresh, please check this issue as there are many people visiting and this is just putting their health at risk .More

Lovely meal and overall great experience. We sat outside overlooking the main square. It was a busy lunchtime however the waiter was polite and attentive. Me and my partner ordered a pizza and a carbonara. Food was hot, tasty and it was an overall an...excellent meal. We had two soft drinks each and the bill came to £25 with no mandatory service charge on top, service tips are at our discretion or 12.5% for groups of 4+. Coming from the UK, A similar meal in a known Italian chain restaurant in London would cost £60+ this was 10x better and was very reasonable meal. A lovely lunch for our first day in Kraków. Would recommend.More

Having seen Tripadvisor reviews we expected this place to be great for my birthday dinner on final night in Krakow. It was basically empty apart from one table but it was early evening. The inside is pleasant but nothing with a wow factor. No table...candles or mood lighting as such. My main issue is that having ordered a sea food broth starter, which was ok but nothing special, the waitress advised me that my secondi main will be served in 5 mins. This is s first ever for me. I hadn’t quite finished my broth about 3 mins into my 5 minute warning when my tuna steak was brought to the table. It was served on a cold plate and I had to rush the last spoons of broth to avoid it getting even colder. I informed the server that we are being rushed and what was meant to be special meal was now feeling like a tourists tapas joint. The server clearly identified my frustration and topped up our glasses to compensate. I’m not impressed with second thought gestures. Just get it right. The deserts were excellent. All in all around 80£ for the bill was reasonable for good but not great food and a pretty poor first experience on what should have been a bit of a special evening. Given that most decent restaurants were winter quiet you’d think they would be more more welcoming and delivering an Italian hospitable experience. It wasn’t that.More

I visited La Grande Mamma in Krakow on New Year's Eve, hoping for a delightful dining experience. However, my visit was marred by deceptive practices that left a sour taste in my mouth. Upon entering the restaurant, we were immediately handed a card machine with...a demand for a 500 Zloti minimum spend, a requirement that was not communicated to us beforehand. This lack of transparency felt like a blatant attempt to trick customers into spending more than they intended. To add to the frustration, our waiter informed us AFTER WE HAD PAID that this minimum spend was non-refundable, forcing us to order more than we desired just to meet the arbitrary requirement. This not only significantly inflated our bill but also left us with a sense of being taken advantage of. Unfortunately, the disappointment extended to the food itself. Despite the hefty price tag, the dishes were subpar and failed to meet the standards we expected. It's disheartening when a restaurant prioritizes profit over customer satisfaction, especially on a special occasion like New Year's Eve. In summary, La Grande Mamma's questionable business practices and underwhelming food have left me with a negative impression. I cannot recommend this establishment to others, and I hope my experience serves as a cautionary tale for those considering dining here.More

Overall food is good in that restaurant, but be careful they cheat on bills. Yesterday they included for our bill 3 bottles of wine for 370 PLN each while wine in the menu card and on their menu in the internet costs 250 PLN each....They were saying that it is mistake in the card, but they have those prices everywhere and they were lying that they mentioned that fact while ordering. After our complain they returned money back. I planned to come back there in 1 month and we spent overall close to 2600 PLN/650 EUR there, but after that situation we will not visit them again and I will worn my friends to avoid that place as well.More

Although the food was very nice, we'd have preferred to sit in the outdoor tented area as the inside was very quiet so lacking atmosphere. They also seemed quite keen for us to finish our meals and drinks so they could close so it was...a little rushed. Nice menu though and plenty of vegetarian choices. This was probably the most expensive meal we had in Krakow but it is in the main square.More

I dined here on New Years Eve & immensely enjoy it. The menu offered good choice of both food & drink. The food & service here compliment each other very well. If visiting for New Years vouchers will need to be purchased to use on...the night, pricing at 250pln per person. Prior to dining here I thought it was alot but if you are planning on having a three course meal & some drinks you will use your full amount.More
