Our favourite spot for lunch on the patio. Peaceful ambience, great service, and delicious food. Compares well to the delicacies of Rome. Somehow the waiters even manage to look Italian. Likely by now they serve Linga, the wonderful gift of the Ngwiras. It is a...must try, and once you try, you are hooked.More

Nice pizza, good service, we would come again. The crepes in particular were excellent and a huge hit with our group

It might not be the real deal but it's very close to authentic Italian. My colleague had a seafood pasta, and I opted for a simple pizza but it was nicely cooked with a thin crust and delicious toppings. Great to sit outside at night...and enjoy the evening. It was full so it obviously has a reputation as being good and the people support it. Service was good and the manager was on hand to ensure everything was up to standard. Limited wine selection but overall good value for money.More

Simply amazing food. Wonderful staff 🙌🏾. We were a large group of more than 20 but everyone was attended to appropriately and the amazing bread rolls kept on coming!

This is an excellent place to eat in Lilongwe. It will surprise you to find such a nice establishment tucked back in this little corner. Everything that my crew ordered was delicious, especially my Fantasia pizza. It had pineapple, roasted sweet corn, ham, and avocado....Woah! So good. I highly recommend this place.More

Love Mamma Mia, this place is always consistently good. Good flavours (sizzling steak, peri peri prawns, pizza, calamari, spinach and ricotta ravioli - all highlights! [and incidentally the only restaurant in town I will order seafood at]) - great service and Nikki the manager is...a gem. Recently had a lovely birthday meal here.More

Mamma Mia Italian restaurant in Lilongwe's Old Town Mall is a decent restaurant offering a variety of Italian and other dishes. I had a seafood pasta which was average but the pizzas looked pretty good. Pleasant, friendly atmosphere in a quiet mall
