“Great food in center'”
Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

We found this restaurant by wondering and reading menus. This place had a covered patio and was decorated sort of old style Italian. It wasn't very full, but smelled wonderful. Service was friendly, selection was great, food was fabulous, an the ticket was the lowest by far. We had bruschetta, formaggio with honey and pears, then steak Florentine with salad, spaghetti and wine. 62euro. Wow! Steak was huge and very tasty. We are from Iowa so it isn't quite as good as corn fed, mid western USA beef, but still very good.

“Worst dining experience in a long time”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

We were looking for a romantic dinner spot and from the outside this look like the right place. However as soon as we arrived, things started to go wrong. We were seated at a tiny table squashed in between other people even though there were larger tables free further along the terrace. We were told those table weren't available - it was around 9:30pm so this didn't make any sense as we were in the last sitting.
After the waitress had ungraciously taken our order, some customers at a larger table for two finished eating so we moved to that more private table. The waitress came out and started screaming at us! I would have left then&there if I had not had a hungry man with me.
The food was completely disappointing. I had enquired about the mixed salad and was told it had rocket, tomato and other greens. I got some wilting iceberg and a few slices of unripe tomatoes. My main was OK but the pizza was very poor, tasteless and cold-the cheese had already started to congeal.
As a cherry on the icing, the roadsweep started working and kept squirting water right next to where we were sitting, ruining any last illusions of a quiet romantic time together.
Price-wise, this was a lot more expensive than some of the restaurants on the main street!
Don't go there!!!

“Good Place”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

I can only repeat what others have said-- good service, good food, varied menu, reasonable prices, a great location (near Piazza Della Signoria), surprisingly not overrun with tourists. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return. Thanks to previous reviewers for pointing us here. Ciao.

“The BEST in Florence.”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

We stumbled on Mammamia, after wandering around Florence getting stung by high priced restaurants. What a welcome surprise. Fabulous food, really NOT expensive (two course lunch includes desert and coffee for 12euros - Oct12), romantic and heaps of tables. Cute Italian paintings on the wall and the staff, Eddy and Dianna, spoke good english and were very helpful. Definately go again.

“Thank you for a great Birthday MaMMaMia!”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Mammamia was the perfect place to celebrate my 32nd Birthday in Florence! It is a Birthday I will never forget. The venue itself is hidden away, quiet and has a great outdoor seating area. The service was fantastic from the get go and the food was wonderful. I had the chicken and my husband had the pasta and to be honest it was probably the best chicken I have had in a long time.

The complimentary lemon sorbet at the end of our meal was also much appreciated. If you are wandering the streets of Florence and are looking for a clean, tasty and quick meal Mammamia is the go!
