The restaurant Mama Mia belongs to two Italian young men, Mimmo and Alfonso. The former is in charge of the banqueting room, the latter is a young talented chef. The restaurant is characterized by a terrace overlooking the sea, and customers can even enjoy the opportunity of dining on the beach. The dishes suggested combine the high quality and freshness of local products with the talent of the chef.
