Recently bought a couple of Grabone deals for Mamma Mia at the Mount and was pleased I did! Their pizzas are excellent as is the service we received. Will definitely be going back!

We decided to eat here due to it being Italian - really nice staff, who were very friendly to our children, chatted away and made us feel at home. The food was okay but not as good as we had hoped for. Thank you though for the lovely atmosphere and service.

Visited Mamma Mia's for the first time and loved the experience, although the chairs were a little uncomfortable. The food and service were great. We timed it well as we were the only ones in the restaurant, but they had only just opened for the evening. All tables were already booked for the evening, but the waiter was most accommodating and seated us, before rearranging the other tables to ensure all reservations could be met. This was done without fanfare or typical Italian drama.
The 4 cheese pizza was "to die for" and the Seafood pasta had a good range of seafood in it, with delicious tomato based sauce. Warning!!, check how hungry you are before ordering the large pizza or perhaps arrange for a doggy bag.
Large number of wines available, but appeared limited to 1 in each category.
Staff were friendly, but not intrusive and nothing was too much trouble.
The dessert menu was very appealing, but had to be left until we return next time ( as pizza didn't make it to the doggy bag).

Has there been a training camp run for restaurants on the Mt main strip - though shalt serve slowly?? The food, when it arrived was very good, the service was stilted at times. The problem was the length of time from drinks to starters to main course to dessert... Now we were in no rush, and food should be enjoyed, but this was bordering on the silly...
Would I go back - yes, because the food is good, but I would certainly push for better service, even though we were a largish group.
