Every time I return to Lilogwe, I make sure to stop at Mamma Mia's. The food is truely delicious, the staff very friendly and the location just so chilled and relaxed. I had Melanzane as a starter, almost as good as my nonna's - that's as close to perfection as it gets!! Pizza was crispy, thin, savoury - what else... More

Mama Mia is one of those places you go to get a very good meal. Tasty, hot and always consistent. Vibe is nice and menu is diverse. I always go for the same thing, but I appreciate friends who tell me how good their different food they are trying is.

What a surprise to find such authentic Italian food in the heart of Africa. I can't call myself an expert on Italian food, but to the best of my knowledge and the judgement of my tastebuds the food served here is very good, at least from what you can expect this far south of the equator. Judging by how full... More

I've been visiting this restaurant since I lived in Lilongwe 15 years ago. Consistently good Italian food, including wood fired pizzas, at reasonable prices. Friendly wait staff. Definitely recommend.

Once again Mama Mia has gone the extra mile to make Valentines dinner a memorable one. The focus, as always, is on customer service. The decor on the evening was special and the fresh roses for the ladies was a nice touch. The food and service is top notch. The oven baked lasagna is from another world. The manager/owner is...

Lovely place to have lunch or dinner. The waiters are very friendly and quite attentive, always helping out and giving honest opinions about the menu. I recommend it for large groups and family's. I also recommend the prawns and the bacon mushroom pasta

This place is a bit overpriced and not really worth it for a pasta dish I likely could have made myself. The atmosphere is nice, but Veg Delight is a much better deal for what you pay and in the same complex.
