I have been going to Mamma's for years and the food is always consistently good however, recently the service has got worse. When entering the restaurant you are directed to a seat and given the main menu but not the early bird or specials menu. Recently when I asked for the other menus I was greeted with a response of listing prices before begrudgingly getting the other menus.
They do adapt the menu if asked but this a very complex procedure and sometimes you are left with a feeling of uncertainty of what meal you will receive.
It feels as though the staff are on another planet, they are incredibly laid back and not very attentive.
When paying for the bill I can't help but thinking they ignore all prices stated and make it up as they go along. Surely it cannot be £6 for 2 glass of diet coke???
Overall the food is great but service is not, I think I will try somewhere else next time

visited here on holiday at the recommendation of a local when we didn't know where to go. It is a really well run restaurant . You place your order and then are seated and you meal arrives not long afterwards. The waiters are old fashioned Italians and you get the feeling that everything is homemade and what they would eat themselves. The food was delicious and very reasonably priced and really traditional. Even the décor and the music made you feel like you were transported back in time and were in a real Italian. The restaurant had Italian people eating there so that was a good sign to us. The best find in Blackpool for a long time

Superb - traditional and fresh Italian food, genuine and welcoming staff. My son is a very fussy eater and they made his meal to order and he even left with a lollipop in hand. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough it was the highlight of our trip to Blackpool
