The restaurant appeared very welcoming when we approached it and we particularly liked the chequered table cloths and the deep red colour scheme, as it made the restaurant look very homely. We were instantly greeted by our main server and given a choice of tables to sit. We found the restaurant staff to be a particular asset to the establishment, as they chatted to us easily and made us feel very welcome. I asked for a wine recommendation and was not only offered a detailed description, but also a taste before I placed my order. Our starters were tasty – the insalata had a large quantity of fresh avocado, mozzarella and tomatoes. The recommended zucchini sticks tasted really crispy on the outside and were perfectly complemented by the tomato dip. Both pizzas were baked to perfection with light delicious bases. The special included a large quantity of woodland mushrooms and lovely fresh rocket and the prosciutto fungi had delicious woodland smoked ham. The restaurant catered extremely well for family groups with the children, who were given special attention by smiling staff members. We felt as if we were transported to Italy and would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant and visiting again.

Enjoyed our visit, didn't sample the pizzas which did look very good but the pastas we both had were very delicious. Good service and fair value. Will be back, pizzas next time.

This was our first visit to Mamma Mia in the Jericho area of Oxford, it having been recommended to us by friends. We were not disappointed. The staff were all friendly and there was a vibrant atmosphere in there. The menu is principally pizza or pasta with a good range of starters, desserts and side dishes. Service was efficient, without being rushed. We both chose pasta for our main courses, which was delicious, and looking at the customers on either side of us, the pizzas looked equally tasty. The prices were reasonable and the food was excellent, especially the Mozzarella Garlic Bread, where the cheese was actually inside the bread - it was certainly the best cheesy garlic bread we have tasted. The only complaint either of us had was that the portions for both starter and main course were large, leaving no room for dessert! We are off to Italy on holiday shortly and if we can find a trattoria as good as this, we shall be very happy.

A good restaurant for great pizza and the house red is very drinkable and reasonably cheap. The one draw back is the pasta dishes are not as good as other Italian's and my wife tends to eat pasta. Whilst not a big pizza eater she prefers the pizza's here to her preference for pasta.

The restaurant was quite busy, but they managed to squeeze two of us in without a booking. Staff were excellent and worked extremely hard. We shared a starter (bruschetta) which was fine for two. Then pizza and pasta - very tasty dishes. Felt authentic and certainly a home-made feel. Seemed to be very family-friendly. Would definitely recommend this restaurant - a little distance from the town center, but maybe that is why it is so much better!
