I was here with a very large group but it was still a good experience, which is not always in smaller restaurants. The service was very good and as was the food, I especially liked the antipasto misto, I only had a bit of the pasta from someone else because I am more of a fan of things like antipasti. The restaurant has a very rustic look and is cozy. It is a good place to start the evening before going into the “Bermuda Triangle” or going to the Schauspielhaus.

Viva la Mamma- a pasta restaurant near Bochum Bermuda-3-Eck, when u see the bridge at the end of central street of the 3-eck, opposite to the NEW front door of the Indian restaurant- "Taj Mahal". (Yet, google the place before setting-off ;)

It is a nicely feathered restaurant~ cozy in a not-too-big size. Anti-pasta and wine is good good in general ;) And I like the Shrimp black noddle (Schwarzen Nuddle, No.12) the most! It once became my must-order dish ;D

However, there is one big concern regarding eating in this restaurant- TIME issue. It would not be a big problem if you are 2-3 persons. But once the number of customers are bigger, especially for a group of more than 10 persons, then it can be something "Katastrophe"! Waiting more than 40 mins-1.5 hour seems not too rare. So be prepared. Try there if you are not too hurry for anywhere else, or if you have a relax date or friends chat-chat- night, it can be a very nice place to head to.
Enjoy~

I'm a local, so believe me, you will hardly find better Italian restaurants in Bochum.
You can't get any pizza here, but you'll find a good variety of pasta dishes, starters and desserts. At first, I recommend to book a table in advance on Friday and Saturday evenings. You can do that online on their website.
The service is attentive and fast for German restaurants, but if every table is occupied, you may have to wait for your main course for an hour (which is normal in this country!). Nevertheless, every guest gets a "Greeting from the kitchen" - tasty bruschetta with tomatoes, basil and onions as well as a couple of parma ham. I love it!

My favorite italian restaurant in Bochum, ambience and food both are top class. Service is prompt and helpful. The atmosphere is very cozy and relaxed. Being vegetarians, we have enough choice here. The service staff are very attentive and charming to the guests.
