We are a family of five with the three children 14, 13 and 11 so eating can sometimes be problematic as kids are a little choosy! Unlike myself who is very easy to please and will eat anything put infant of me! Right so in the heart of Bordeaux it is decided to go for Pizza......again! This is a specialist... More

If you want to eat Italian in Bordeaux this is a pretty good find. The food was good, the background soul music great, the prices reasonable but the welcome was non-existent. Our restaurant French is OK and the place wasn't busy when we stepped through the door so there was a bit of space for the odd bit of interaction.... More

Great drinks, great pizzas, great staff, lovely restaurant. Sit outside or in . Cosy place with a good menu which isn't too expensive. Once again French service is top notch (I don't know why people complain so much about the surly French) . These girls were great

We were looking for a restaurant in Bordeaux on a Sunday and found many shuttered doors! After a good wander we found La Mama and were glad we did. It was cool night but we sat outside and enjoyed watching the passersby. On order by our group were pizzas and spaghetti carbonara All were served hit, fresh and tasty. No... More

Great to find a nice Italian Restaurant in the middle of Bordeaux. They even serve Garlic Pizza, which was very tasty. The pasta dishes were plentiful & very filling. The Pizza's looked great with plenty of topping Great find

We ate here two nights in a row because we knew the food was good! Fresh made pasta was excellent; wood fired pizza was better! Try the "mama" pizza- it's great. Wonderful creme brulee also.

It was just down the road from our hotel. We walked in off the street at 7.30pm and got the last table. The place was very busy the staff were very efficient and our food came quicker than we thought given how busy the place was. the house white was good but my husband wasn't so keen on the house...
