This is a well run, good quality restaurant by any standard - not just for Lilongwe. Excellent pizza and pasta. It was pricey, but worthwhile...

I have been to Mama Mia both with family and friends and its an awesome place to dine. The range of food is good and so is the quality. Making it a great place for a family dinner, business meal or lunch with friends.

We have been to Mamma Mia's a couple of times. We had visitors from SA and wanted to treat them to a relaxing evening out. As always, great food, great service and friendly staff. It has become one of our favourite family restaurants in Lilongwe.

Spent nice evening with the family on the terrace of this nice and cosy place. Perfectly done Pizza and Pasta plates served with a smile of very reactive and attentive personnel. To be considered when staying in Lilongwe.

After being in Lilongwe for three weeks and fed up with burgers and pizzas and badly cooked food in restaurants, I decide to try this place based on tripadvisor reviews. Coming from The UK and having visited Italy many many times, I have no idea where the people who reviewed this place as the best in Lilongwe are coming from.... More

Mamma Mia is one of Malawi's National Treasures! My Fiancé, and I go to the restaurant at least twice a month, and always walk away with a smile. Service and attention to detail sets this restaurant apart from all the rest. They have a wide-selection of Italian, and other Western dishes which spoils you for choice! A must when you... More

We saw good reviews of this place and wanted somewhere with an outdoor dining option whereas many of the mall restaurants don't have that. Mamma Mia has an outdoor patio which was busy with a mainly ex-pat crowd on the Monday evening we visited on. We shared a 12 inch pizza which had good toppings and a nice crispy base.... More
