Went here one night as we fancied a pizza,. Wow! this place is much bigger than it looks, the food is fab and the staff very friendly and helpful. Prices are average and a good time was had by all. I wouldn't usually have a pizza on holiday but i'd go back here for sure.

“Gorgeous little Italian restaraunt”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

.....You will just love this place, & its quite central in Hastings & not too far off the beaten track. Its situated more or less opposite the Coconut Court Hotel & is adjacent to the Blue Room bar & grill. The standard of service & friendliness & helpfulness of staff is excellent....The food is amazing too!! Well worth a visit!

“Get your authentic Italian pasta fix in Barbados! Visited for 7 days and ate at Mama Mia's on 6 days!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

We visited Barbados just after Christmas day for one week. During our stay, we ate at Mama Mia on 6 of the days!
It's not just that it was the most convenient place to dine being just obliquely opposite Coconut Court Hotel where we stayed; but it really is a very nice family-run café making delicious and authentic Italian staples and specials!

We were often greeted personally by Giuse ‘Mama’ Ferri whose warmth and spirited personality makes you feel as though you’ve come to dine with family! She was there most days, even during the holidays!

We love their lunch specials - always something unique thrown in! The flavours are divine! Who would believe you could get your Italian pasta-fix in Barbados?!

On 2 consecutive nights we showed up without reservations and they happily fit us in. They're clearly doing a lot right since the place is always packed solid! We love the festive atmosphere and the staff personalities!

During our stay, we had 3 dinners and 3 lunches. The variety of meals we enjoyed included Lasagne Ratatouille, Spaghetti Carbonara, Minestrone soup, Greek salad, Insalata platter with Salami and Cheeses, Chicken sandwich, Caesar salad with Prosciutto and eggs and Portofino pizza with ham and pepperoni. We also tried the Chef's specials on separate days of Spaghetti and Meatballs, Fish with mashed potatoes and Spicy Meat rolls. This just goes to prove that you can eat here for a week and not have the same thing twice!

The only thing we found strange was that when we ordered Lasagne for lunch it included garlic bread and a side salad. However, at dinnertime, the lasagne came with no extras, despite being the same price. We were expecting at least some house bread or a small bowl of olives, seeing as dinner was a proper full-service meal.

Mama Mia will always be a special part of our visits to Barbados! Even as I’m writing this, I’m wishing we were there enjoying a savoury pasta lunch special with a cold Peroni or Banks beer and their homemade golden apple juice or lemonade topped off with a decadent hazelnut ice cream!

“Outstanding Italian Resturant”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

We were in Barbados for one week and ate at this restaurant three times. The outside of this restaurant is very deceiving. Once inside, you will be pleasantly surprised by the cozy, friendly atmosphere. Every meal we had was delicious! The first night we both had different pasta dishes with an appetizer and dessert. Everything was prepared perfectly. The service was excellent and the staff was knowledgeable about the preparation and contents of the food. The second night we had "Mama's Surprise". On that night we met Mama and she inquired into our likes and dislikes along with any allergies to any food. She then prepared an appetizer, an entree and a dessert. She also recommended a wine that was paired excellently with the meal. Our third meal was lighter. We ordered a calzone and pizza. My husband loved the flavorful thin crust pizza and the calzone's mix of various cheeses and spinach was delectable. Both of these were again delicious. Everything was served hot and very tasty. This restaurant is truly a Barbadian treasure.
