“starters starters starters”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I am a native of Malawi and so have witnessed the transition of mama mia over the years with the changes in management. My most recent visit was in july. Went with my parents so endulged in starters as money wasnt an issue, for the table we orded the antipaso, stuffed egg plant, escargot, and som mushroom dish...i LOVED all of them. And tbh the only thing that draws me there are the starters. The pizza and pasta dishes we ordered were a little dull for the most part. I am yet to try other main dishes other than the pastas/ pizza.

“Quick lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Turned up for a bit of lunch with some friends, was ok, milkshakes rank Id say.... bottom of the list of 5 I've tried so far.

Left feeling full and happy, not outstanding, but not horrific either. If someone else suggests it theres no reason to argue, but no reason to hunt it out in particular I feel.

“Would love more consistency”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

I have had one of the best Carbonara ever, I was actually with a colleague that was based in Italy and he said that it was brilliant. We returned the following day as we were so impressed, only to be really disappointed. It must have been a different chef. This was a little bit of a let down, but we still had a great night. Great service and really friendly staff.

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Good pizzas in this place, although the Old Town Mall location is a bit sterile, the service and food make up for it. Worth a visit if you're looking for western food in old town
