Had a meal here on Saturday night. Place was very busy -but service was excellent and we didn't have a long wait before our mains come out. All 4 mains were excellent. If a big eater possibly a side of veges would be needed.

My daughter was visiting with our 9mth old grandson and we wanted to take her out for a nice meal. Mamma Mia was just the right place as they had a high chair for little Jo and we had a lovely evening. The food was good the service fantastic. Atmosphere great I would visit again.

We were a group of 8 - 4 adults and 4 kids - searching for someone to take us for dinner on a Saturday night. It was 6.30pm. Barrio Brothers could take us at 8pm. Osteria were terribly snotty and apparently fully booked even though there was not a soul inside their restaurant. Astrolabe was busy and really random -... More

Nice Italian food at reasonable prices. One of our group requested pasta with her meat dish instead of veg and they couldn't manage that.

We've been to Mamma Mia many times - great food, reasonably priced, and you can BYO. Menu is somewhat limited, but everyone can find something they'll love - including pizza for the kids.

Dined here and food was great. My four hundred gram steak melted in my mouth. It is BYO so you can take your own special or favourite bottle of wine

We visited this restaurant without a reservation. Greeted with a lovely smile and happiness to serve. We were quite economical with our food order. Our starter we shared which was sauted whole black olives with garlic and olive oil and came with two small pieces of ciabatta. Plenty of olives and very tasty. Recommend them. My guest had Mare and... More

During a recent visit to the Mount, we revisited this restaurant after being so impressed the first time. On both occasions, it was a great night out with really good food served in very satisfactory portions. I was a little disappointed with the black truffle entree (not quite to my taste) but the bruschetta and the calamari were excellent. We... More
