Top quality pizza, mellow surroundings, good staff and very reasonably priced. Had the piccante every time it was that good!
Will use this regularly on return visits to Lilongwe, good eating is not easy to find in the town.

Pros
• Located very close to the city Centre in Lilongwe
• Good Italian restaurant
• Good taste and friendly staff
• Good assortment of wine etc.

Cons
• Run by an Indian team  not an Italian team
• The waiters speak a bit of Italian and pretend a lot
• Very slow delivery – way beyond the mentioned 20 mins

Do Consider
• It’s better to pay in Kwachas (local currency) as against the dollar as the exchange conversion is dependent on the whims of the owner
• Please read the whole menu thoroughly and enquire about the ordered item
• Do check the food that you get- they do serve other table’s items at times
• Please let the hotel staffs know if you would need separate bills for liquor beforehand for fuss a lot about it later.

This is the last thing you'd expect to find in Lilongwe, a town hardly known for culinary excellence. An Italian restaurant, staffed entirely by locals, which actually takes the job seriously. Unlike the other purportedly Italian restaurant in town, this one is the real thing, with every effort taken to produce an authentic menu, but sensitively and creatively adapted to the local produce. Just as unusually for this part of Africa, they actually understand the meaning of service, with nice little touches like a range of different breads on the table and a sauce to dip them in. The kitchen is large, well staffed and completely visible from the dining area, and the meals arrive much faster than you'd normally expect. The prices mean that it's attractive mostly to expats and tourists (a meal will cost you roughly half of what something similar would in Melbourne), but it's well worth a visit if you happen to be passing through.

Mamma Mia's was a favourite restaurant of ours while staying in Lilongwe for a month, and we ate there 3 times. The pizzas were very good, with a nice crispy base. I can recommend the piccante and the full house if you have a bigger appetite. I also had the ravioli with ricotta and spinach. It wasn't a big portion but it was just what I wanted and was very tasty. Good value food and some nice red wines. Mamma Mia's has the advantage of accepting visa cards.
