“Delicious food, wonderful people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We went to Mamà on the rave recommendation of a total stranger who saw us looking at the menu of a nearby restaurant. It did not disappoint! The service was terrific. Hospitality plus. While we waited for our order, they gave us a couple of very tasty bruschettas—one tomato-based, one with spinach and chicory. Mmm-MMM! They also served us two glasses of complimentary sparkling wine, which was excellent. I had spaghetti aglio olio, which is a family favorite, and it was far and away the best I've ever had. We made sure to tell the concierge at our hotel to recommend it to their guests.

“Delicious food and good local beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We chose this restaurant for lunch because we were visiting the vatican and the reviews on TA were generally good. We left happy and full despite having ordered only two pasta dishes and one salad. Everything was cooked to perfection and my husband was very happy about the local beer which was a rare find in most of the Roman restaurants we visited during our stay.

“Great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

I first visited Mama' Bistrot 3 years ago when Andrea had just opened. It's a spot where many restaurants had opened and failed, but Andrea has made it a success. They are very friendly and offer great service and interesting food. Usually while studing the menu' they offer a free bruschetta. Many locals dine at Mama' . The 15 euro lunch special is a great buy.

“Welcoming, friendly and tasty -- with free water”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Although it may seem odd to mention free water, all water must be bought and paid for, it seems, in Rome. At Mama's, they bring a pitcher of cold water to the table -- something greatly appreciated on a 95 degree day! Plate of the day is the way to go with several courses. My son had an appetizer of tuna with farro and cherry tomatoes that was incredible. The service is very friendly and helpful, the food is fresh and tasty and a great choice near the Vatican. Frequented by locals, it was a terrific lunch on a long hot day of St. Peter's and the Vatican museums.
