Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Saturday lunchtime meal with friends. Two of us had the tortellini - £15 I think. Only 4 pieces in a large bowl of broth - needed a spoon and bread but were offered neither. What we had was tasty but not nearly enough food. House...wine was ok but £29? Left feeling rather disappointed with the restaurant. Also the toilet desperately needs a refurb.More

Always enjoy coming to sexy mamma. The menu is always great but they are happy to make spaghetti and sauce for those who are more picky (me!). It’s a nice place for a date and my partner and I enjoyed our anniversary meal here!

Small menu of 4 starters, 4 mains and a couple of desserts. Limited seating so expect a queue and to be sharing a space. Delicious food, good wine (pick red or white, that’s it) and friendly, attentive staff. Garlic, tomato and chilli prawn spaghetti was...excellent, as was tiramisu. Lovely stuff.More

West Bridgford location- Dark and lacked atmosphere. Ordered a lemonade and it was flat, requested a fresh one but they had no more left. No cordial, so soft drinks very limited. Limited choice of vegetarian options. Poor table service we sat for over half an...hour after we had finished our meal with no drinks and no one came over to check on us. Over priced for what was served. Very small portions, went home and had tea and toast! Definitely won’t be returning-waste of money, could have made a more satisfying plate at home!More

This was a good experience: the food quality, the waitress (Sofia) and staff's manner, the speed they served the food + drinks; and I love the way the kitchen is just by us! Very positive experience!

Noisy, overly dark, uncomfortable chairs and perfunctory service. A limited menu is all very well if the food really is fresh and attractive. This was neither. In early evening some items were already finished and not replaced with alternatives. The single pasta dish (in an...Italian restaurant!) was definitely not fresh pasta and the sauce was miserly. Cost £15 to the diner and probably cost 50p to make. Starters were grim. Again if a menu is limited the ingredients should be of a high standard - watery balsamic and I've had better olives from Tesco. A couple of the main course options were nicely done but definitely overpriced for what was very simple food. Altogether disappointing and definitely not a place to linger. Needs a speedy and comprehensive overhaul as the management here have their eye off the ball.More

Starter and main were ok and the dessert (tiramisu) was very bland, all cream, sponge and cocoa powder. The atmosphere was lacking, turnover of clients rapid, no table cloths, paper napkins and staff too rushed to make eye contact or converse.

My first visit to the Westbridgford Sexy Mamma last eve was a tad disappointing, the food was nice enough but I don't think I've ever felt so rushed both to eat but then more so to leave , they clearly wanted to get home as...early as possible which somewhat spoilt the experience! We hadn't even finished our drinks & there were another 3 tables still in there as this was only around 9.15 pm , the man who appeared to be in charge told us he wanted to cash up for the night so we obliged & paid , when I asked if we were ok to stay a bit longer his reply was 'I'll have to think about it but I want to close by 10!' We didn't feel very welcome to stay any longer so left & went elsewhere for another drink, it was a shame though as I'd really been looking forward to trying it for the first time!More

A real shame! The food is not what it used to be - a victim of its own success maybe in that they have opened in other locations in Nottingham. Tortellini was clearly microwaved. Risotto was over cooked Tiramisu was really sloppy!!! These used to...be fabulous signature dishes - what have you done?????More

No booking system, walk in only, but as we went on a Thursday evening in January there were plenty of tables available. We started with a Baguette and dipping oil. The bread was very hard, almost stale. In an Italian restaurant surely some fresh, warm...Focaccia or Ciabatta would have been more appropriate. Our two pasta mains were nice enough and a generous plateful but the sauces were a little on the watery side. Parmesan was added at the pass and not bought to the table to help yourself. Desert of Tarte Tatin and ice cream was lovely. Coffee and maybe a Limoncello would have been nice but we couldn't stay any longer as the awful music being played so loudly had finally got to us. If we had wanted to go clubbing we would have gone to a club, not a restaurant. I don't want to sit and yell at my partner and continually say pardon to the waitress. We love eating out and these days it's a luxury we are lucky to be able to do. Being lovers of Italy and all things Italian we've been excited to visit since Sexy Mama opened in West Bridgford. It was OK, but I'm sure we'll spend our money elsewhere next time. There's a lot of choice locally where the food, experience and ambience are betterMore

The food was perfectly pleasant but the table we were sat on was very small for three people. Service was just ok - no pleasantries and definitely felt like they were just going through the motions! The main issue is we are overcharged by an...entire main course and when we pointed it out we were told that can often happen due to the machine - I wonder how many times it does!More

Nice little spot I never knew was there! Menu is on a chalk board by the door so only has a few options but what’s on offer is delicious! Guessing the menu changes regularly, will defiantly be back to try it again.

I didn’t book and was lucky enough to get a table - is very compact inside but worth it…..even if you have to wait for a table to become free.
