A great restaurant with genuine Italian food, homemade pasta and delicious pizzas, the desserts are a must try, especially the decadent Italian ice-cream

This is a very popular Italian restaurant serving traditional fare – noisy and bustling – great food – generous portions – reasonably priced good wines –value for money – attentive waitrons – all in all a super place to pop out for supper – sadly management did not take any action regarding some unruly children but they were far enough...

the food used to be a mockery of real italian food (i am an italian spending some months of the year in Safrica since 20 years) . now i think a change in chef and management has given us a good restaurant with lovely view, good service and some excellent dishes

Junior and I were waiting for mom who was eating with friends at another spot. We therefore went to the tried and tested Mamma's. Sure enough we got a tasty value meal once again. The service even seems to have got better although I didn't mind the laid back service before: this is a spot to go chill out on... More

Popped in here for a quick lunch with my daughter who had visited before. Safe parking, good service and one of the best pizzas I'd ever eaten. Will definitely visit again.

We were taken for lunch by our Principal after a training session and having eaten here before to no real fanfare, I was expecting another mediocre meal. I must admit I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and flavour of the food. They told us about a variety of specials from fish to steak to pasta and we ordered most... More
