Food was good not exceptional. A glass of wine was $12.00 for muscato everywhere else I've paid about $7-to maybe $10.00. The owner is somewhat conceited. The veil was ok nothing special. A side of pasta was $6.00 with your meal I don't think we'll be going back.

Food was good but not enough of it. I NEVER finish a meal but I did here. Spaghetti was a bit too al dente for my liking. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his linguine with clams but wanted more. Meals come with a salad and boring bread. Staff very friendly and efficient. You can watch your meal being cooked on CCTV.... More

Friends told us about a “spot not to miss” if you wanted a interesting and enjoyable dining experience; they did not lead us wrong. Oh Mama Mia is a very interesting restaurant in that you either looked into the kitchen directly or viewed it on a projection screen in the outer dining area. Either way you watched as your and...

This used to be our favorite Italian Restaurant in Sarasota but not anymore. Hubby and I ate here on a Saturday evening. We made online reservations for 6:30. When we got there we asked if we could sit in the room where you can watch the kitchen. We were told no that the computer assigns tables and that can't be... More

The rolls, olive oil, and free salad were good, and the compliments stop there. We had an early reservation, but when we arrived we were put backing on the reception by the door. In spite of the restaurant being half empty, we were refused a table change by the owner as it would have upset their computer system. My wife... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Sarasota (I count Columbia in Tampa) and is marked not just by excellent food and a fantastic revolving wine selection but a true unique and fun experience and singular personality in head chef Giuseppe. This is very much a person-driven establishment and you can't walk through the doors here and not feel that you... More

I have been going to Siesta Key for about 30 years and have enjoyed many wonderful dining experiences. Oh Mama Mia has to have the best and most authentic Italian cuisine around. I would highly recommend you "take out" from their varied menu. You will never believe the reason... they actually give you a 40% discount if you use a... More

We were staying nearby at Motel L and went to Oh Mamma Mia as it was very close to our hotel. I'm guessing the owner waited on our table and whilst the food itself was pretty good and came very quickly it's a shame the service wasn't on a par! He really couldn't have been any more disinterested if he'd... More

We went to this restaurant and they gave us a table next to the window (we did not have a reservation) ...they should never have given us a table unless they planned on giving us the same service as those who made reservations. My advice to this restaurant don't seat anyone unless you can provide equal service. Ordered the most... More
