A real Gem

This little restaurant is tucked away off the beaten track but it is so worth finding. The service was excellent, the wine was good quality and inexpensive and the food authentic Italian. There were six at our table and each dish was delicious. The only negative comment was that the plates could... read more

We love Oh Mama Mia. It is always consistently an enjoyable dining experience. The whole staff is incredibly friendly from our server, Joe, the chef, the hostess make you feel so welcome and right at home. Our party of 4 enjoyed unicorn fish, chicken marsala, sacchetti tartufo burro salvia and tortelloni di zucca. Perfection. The meals comes with salad or... More

I had eaten at Oh Mamma Mia a few years ago and was very impressed. When trying to figure out what to get my in-laws for Christmas, I was reminded that OMM has gift certificates for Chef/Owner Giuseppe Urbano's "Chef on Demand" cooking class. The four of us had dinner on a Friday night and we will never forget it.... More

From the moment that we arrived Guiseppe made our party feel welcome. Though the lunch menu was limited he offered the dinner menu at a reduced price. Each of us ordered something different and everyone had glowing reports. We have tried to get in at dinner only to be turned away by the crowds. Lunch is a good option

Chef is super friendly and pasta is fantastic! Chef took the kids to the kitchen bar and fed them their own "special" meal!! Will definitely return!

We stayed in Siesta Key the first week of December and visited Oh Mamma Mia our first night of our vacation. We were met and greeted as we walked in the door, and that was just the start of the excellent service we received during our dinner. As we were visiting in the off season, it wasn't packed, but I...

This was our first visit to Oh Mamma Mia, and we will definitely be back. The restaurant is small in size and not overly fancy, but clearly the chef prides himself on his establishment. Depending on where one sits, one can watch the action in the kitchen on a large, wall mounted screen, and it is certainly a busy place.... More

Just had a fabulous lunch with Guiseppi, the owner and another couple. We had a delicious pasta with meat sauce and i had a wonderful salad with meats and cheese. A glass of red wine was the top of the meal. Great energy there and a wonderful chef/owner makes the place feel like home

What an experience.. Authentic Italian at its finest. Humble and intimate atmosphere, everything Italian dining should be. As an Italian I love visiting, an absolute escape to Italy right here in Sarasota.
