It took the waiter 10 minutes to eventually bring us the menu, even though there were only four occupied tables. The lasagne was cold in the middle, and the Escalope Milanese was as tough as old boots. As a result I only managed to chew my way through half of my escalope before I gave up, so I asked for...

Like most restaurants in Monte Gordo, La Mamma offers a tourist menu at really good prices (pretty much the same on offer wherever you go). 3 course plus a drink for about 11 euros. Food was very good, staff were friendly and it's in a good central location - what more do you need?

We used this restaurant on two occasions and both times had a great meal at reasonable prices with good service. Whilst they specialise in Pizza's they do have an extensive grill and salad menu.

It was a nice meal, homemade food. However the service takes a lot of time. Price mide range. Beware green lasagne besides spinach also has meat!

We had pizza, it was good but not great. Lot of filling but the dough was a bit doughy. Good service!

Warm friendly welcome on arrival. Lovely bottle of wine. Garlic bread starter was great but the veal milanaise was awful. Poor quality stringy meat which looked overdone . It came with spaghetti bolognaise -the worst bolognaise sauce ever! After we said it wasn't great the server disappeared -no desert /coffee offered . Just asked for the bill and left .... More
