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.

The food is exceptional with the atmosphere to match. Staff and owner are friendly yet professional. Food is served in a timely manner and they have mastered the ability to make it taste like an authentic home cooked meal. Really does make you feel like...you've momentarily left Scotland! We were made to feel welcome and given all the time we wanted to enjoy or visit. Will definitely be back when we are next in Stirling.More

Visited several times, and became a regular. Mamma Mia meets the highest continental standards in terms of ingredients' quality and recipe authenticity. Whilst the attached picture features pizza, all of which are exceptional, the whole menu is worth sampling, from the home mussels to regional...pasta dishes. And let's not forget a small but outstanding selection of desserts, chief amongst which the tiramisù. Award-winning wine list, from which you could choose blindfolded, and still not get it wrong. Very efficient service, and quite reasonable prices, especially considering quality. Booking advisable on busy evenings.More

We were hoping for a traditional Italian experience with atmosphere and quality of food. They did not disappoint. So relaxing and fun and the food was top notch.

The best pasta dishes ever! We had the assorted seafood spaghetti (with Scottish mussels) and the house special pasta with Scotttish beef ribs. Pared with a great wine list from the Puglia region where the owners are from! Totally fabulous. And finish with Tiramisu? Marvelous!

Booked ahead on the day over the telephone for four people ( business colleagues at 7pm ). Due to weather, arrived just 8 minutes late. Messy and empty tables immediately on show but was happy to wait at the bar if necessary and have a...drink. Instead, the ignorant and rude owner told us to ‘stand outside and wait a further 15 minutes ‘because we were late’ ????? Astonishing and unbelievable attitude. Disgraceful.More

Was recommended as a nice place to eat. Food was very good. Group of ten people. Last night of together with friends. Split in to two tables in the rear of the premises. As one of the company was late the remainder of the company...was not served drinks and could not order food until last person arrived. This was a 10minutes delay. The manager/owner was adamant that it was customers fault as a member of the company was 5minutes late. We were not served even a drink under instruction of the manager/owner for a further 20 minutes. The restaurant was not busy at the time.More

We went tonight as a family my self, partner and 2 kids boy 16 girl 13. Food and service were excellent given that the restaurant was fully booked!! Staff extremely friendly. Service charge was removed by manager due to slow service and he couldn't apologise...enough. However we felt this was unfair and asked for the service charge to be added back on. We felt the service was good despite it being so busy. Especially is a Saturday night!! Can't wait to return. Thank you again to your lovely front of house staff and compliments and thanks to the chefs who cooked our meals xxMore

Before visiting Mama Mia, we read the reviews on Trip Adviser. They ranged from one-star, citing the rudeness of the manager, to five-star, praising the excellence of the food. Both were correct. The manager was exceptionally rude and boorish, especially in the way he mistreats...his staff (they must be exceptionally well-paid to put up with the abuse he hands out to them in front of customers) but the food was excellent. Somewhat overpriced at over £100 for two courses for two plus an indifferent bottle of Italian plonk. A 12.5% service charge was added but we didn’t have the heart to ask for it to be removed because of the treatment we had seen the staff receiving. However, we go to restaurants for the food and we had no complaints about that - so four stars. But we won’t be back.More

The rudest, obnoxious reception from the the owner/manager. The place appeared virtually empty but this rude man said no reservation & waved us away. No asking if we would like to have a drink & wait for a table to open or even if we...would like to make a future reservation. With such an obnoxious attitude this business deserves to fail. Would have given zero stars but this app requires at least one. All other Italian restauranteurs would be ashamed of this level of inhospitality.More

We visited today with our 9 month old daughter and it was really enjoyable. All staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent, I think it’s perhaps one of the best pizzas I’ve ever had. We’ll definitely be back at some point! Thanks for...a lovely lunch.More

This question was asked 4 years ago so things might have been different perhaps. In 2020, the portion sizes are definitely not small.
