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

Although it's bang opposite the old town mall, the area where it is isn't that great. However it's in a gated area. The service and food was amazing. My friend and I ordered one pizza and it was quite big for the two of us. Be careful about the lunch hours - they don't serve after 1:30 pm.

AS someone who lived in Italy and appreciates fine dining I was not disappointed. The staff were very welcoming, knowledgeable, and service was quick. The food was great all round.

Great Lasagna! Enjoyed every time with friends or with family!. Great for dinners, if in a group book early, busy over the weekends.

The pizzas are good and the slow roasted lamb (special) was fantastic. Staff is friendly and the owner will stop by for a chat.

We went here a few times and the food was AMAZING. We had the lamb shank 3 days in a row. The pancake filled ice cream is so wrong, but yet so good. The menu caters for all different pallets. Great value for money.

...this restaurant would be below average, since we are talking about Lilongwe, it is a life safer. Normal Italian food like pizza, lasagne and so on. Really good is the beef steak, although it is very expensive especially for local norm. The service staff is very friendly and the same people for years, they know me every half year I'm... More

This is a gem of a restaurant serving delicious italian food. it's nice to have something like this in Malawi to treat yourself. The staff were very friendly and responsive, ensuring we were not short of a drink. I ordered the pizza and it was very tasty and cooked perfectly. highly reccommendthis place for an outing in Lilongwe.
