Once again back to La Mamma.
Far away best Italian restaurant in Abu Dhabi.
Food was amazing, place was quiet and Italian Manager Filippo was fantastic.
He knows what to suggest you, what will be the best food of the day and always give you the best place available to sit.
Great meal overall!

Just got back from Yas Viceroy, yas Island. We have had the pleasure of visiting La Mama for the past five years and I have never been let down. However this time was even better. I rang the restaurant as I had read that the menu had changed, not the end of the world I know, but my daughter has always been able to have able to choose a dish which is not on the menu as she suffers with stomach problems. I rang the restaurant while in Abu Dhabi and the Manager rang me back within minutes to tell me they would prepare whatever she wanted. Fantastic. I would like thank everyone involved, great food, great service, still a great restaurant, please try it as they do go the extra mile and I will be back next year. Thank you. Mr Fox & Family.

I'm often in Abu Dhabi cause my job and often I go to "la mamma" restaurant for dinner. The place is very nice and cozy, staff is very polite and they take care about customers, specially the manager Filippo which is very professional and very prepared, he really likes his job and do it very well. Food is very good, rich portions and very nice presentation. U can eat a delicious risotto there and very good taste meat. Also pizza is fantastic and I can tell cause I'm Italian...You can also have a wide excellent selection of Italian wines. I highly raccomend this restaurant to all those who loves Italian food and want to have dinner in a beautiful place.

One of the best Italians in Abu Dhabi if you take value in to account. If staying in the sheraton hotel it's a must!

Dear Kyle,

Thank you for posting a review of “La Mamma” on tripadvisor.

Very pleased to read that you enjoyed your experience with us and found the food prepared by Chef Enrico and his team to your liking.

We are starting a Sicilian promotion in June (Enrico’s birth place) and we are also launching an “All You Can Eat, Pizza and Pasta” for the summer months, I hope we will see you there.

Warm regards

I do expect just a bit more from an Italian restaurant with an Italian chef.
Good taste, fresh food but too much dressing everywhere.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for your feedback, we always take our customer comment very seriously and use them to improve on our offering.

Your comments have been well noted, the menu offers a rather wide variety of dishes with different kind or sauces and I am sure we could find something that would be up to your satisfaction.

We are starting our “Sicilian” food promotion in June and our Chef Enrico who is from Sicily would surely have some pleasant surprises on offer.

I hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again in the future and do not hesitate to ask our Restaurant’s manager or our Chef’s recommendation.

Warm regards
