Loved the menu. Wasn’t sure where to go at first but was soon informed by a friend how good La Mamma is. Really lived up to expectations. Very quick service and pleasant waitress. Food tasted amazing, both hubby and I loved all of it. Can’t wait to go again.
Food was fab. Came here with the work colleagues for our Christmas due, honestly can’t wait for next year. Food and service was incredible. Had a lovely time. Not at all expensive but still very pleasant. Thank you La Mamma for such a wonderful evening.
Was booked in here for a surprise anniversary gift. Absolutely fantastic. Made such a lovely day to remember, had a very enjoyable time. The food looked amazing and tasted just as good. Wanted to try everything on the menu. La Mamma is now my favourite restaurant.
As a full time mother of 2, there is always bickering as to where we go out for dinner. Thanks to La Mamma I don’t have that anymore. The kids love it there. Pizza and pasta for the little ones and even a vegetarian for me. The service was really fast which was lovely and the waitress was so polite. Thanks again La Mamma
