I used to frequent La Mamas a lot when I was a child, obviously with my parents. I hadn't been in over 10 years and thought I would revisit for old times sake. The new decor gives the impression of fine dining and is nice. The food wasn't great, the veal was luke warm and the Lasagna was burnt. The... More

Nice food in a relaxed restaurant. Very calm and peaceful surroundings with a good menu offering plenty of choice for all. The gnocchi and the cheesecake were very good and must be tried.

Long time since we have eaten at La Mamma's. At one time it was the best in Abu Dhabi. Sadly it has gone downhill. It was a Friday evening, and not too busy. I ordered the Lasagne which was very disappointing. It was dry, looked as if it had been lying around for more than a day and quite tasteless.... More

We checked the place first two or three nights before we dine. They had about five tables/approximately 12 guests. The night we decided to have dinner there, it was empty. Maybe because it was already 10pm? We only ordered mains as you can see in the photos. These two dishes were absolutely good. More than what we expected. Very good... More

OK is all I can say about this one. The smoking area drifts into the non smoking area. The specials seem confusing and wine list a little dull. The food was put together well but not spectacular.

La Mamma is perfect for a casual dining experience, I went with my S.O. based on her recommendation since she's familiar with the restaurant as one of the "old-school" restaurants in Abu Dhabi. Frankly speaking I was shocked that I've lived here for 10 years and this was the first time I've heard of La Mamma. The ambiance is pleasant... More
