“Perfect snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Fancied a small Aussie pizza with beer/wine and have to say all perfect including service.
Nice outside seating area with sea view.
Worth every cent

“Beautiful food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

We ate in 2 night in a row because the food was so good. We had the garlic prawns, past and pizza over those nights and it was all magnificent. I would highly recommend eating here when in Glenelg

“Pleasant and Convenient with Delicious Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

During a recent trip to Adelaide we headed to Glenelg on our final day, and when we arrived, we were in search of brunch.

Fortunately the Mamma Carmela Cafe Pizzeria was a stone's throw away from the tram terminus, so we checked the menu board and headed inside.

Meals and drinks must be ordered from the counter. The young girl taking my order was slow, but polite and apologetic for her slowness. I suspect she was new or in training.

The food arrived very quickly, and the coffee was just right.

I ordered the Mamma's Bacon Frenzy, which, contrary to the name, isn't loaded with insane amounts of bacon. It is a basic bacon, eggs and toast breakfast.

The eggs were done very nicely, and the bacon was delicious.

My only complaint would be the hard-crusted bread.

The food was enjoyable, the prices were quite reasonable, the service was prompt and the location was prime. I'd be happy to visit the Mamma Carmela Cafe Pizzeria in Glenelg again.

“Watering hole”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Good location next to Stamford Grand and the beach visible.. Tram line ends outside but decor is tired. A coat of paint and new furniture does not cost much. Recently added loyalty card is a bonus for regular customers.
