We all 27 of us really enjoyed our Christmas get together at the ever popular local restaurant. We had two long tables in the Bistro which was perfect for our exclusive(almost) dining experience. Thank you Pascal and staff for a very memorable evening.

This restaurant is always a delight. Delicious food at a reasonable price and charasmatic staff. A proper Italian restaurant. Don’t let the exterior put you off it is gorgeous inside and since the renovations it is even better.

The food at Mama Italia is always awesome. I don’t trust many places to get a steak just how I like it. But pascal makes sure it is always perfect every time. From the starters to the deserts always fantastic proper Italian food every time....More
