“UNTIMELY RETIREMENT.”
Reviewed 24 December 2011

My wife and I visited Tony at Lazzerella yesterday and after the usual
excellent, friendly meal, he casually informed us that today will be the last
time, as he is retiring at Christmas. This is after eighteen years, providing
Great Yarmouth with a restaurant full of wonderful ambience and good
solid, as Momma would have cooked, food. We are so pleased to have been present, although it was just by chance we decided to go.
Unfortunately the real reason Tony is stopping, is because his wife is
very ill and requires his full time attention. If you read this Tony, Pauline and I wish your wife a speedy recovery and all the very best in the future.

“Italian food as Italian food should be in authentic Italian surrounds”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

Saw some reviews across the boards. Read and digested. Took a daytime walk to find this little gem. Just as well, it is out of the normal walk area. But when you find the building and it's beautiful courtyard, you are at Mammas!!!!! Saw every bit of food being prepared and cooked. Great!! Loved the house wine!! Prices overall. extremely fair and, dare I say it,
much cheaper than expected!! Great evening with great people. A weekend in Gt yarmouth, a lifetime on the taste buds!!

“Small, intimate and authentic”
Reviewed 10 October 2011

Great little Italian tucked away in the Yarmouth rows. We have been many times so feel it's time to give it a good review. Only seats about 20 maximum but tables can be arranged to cater for 2 to however many you wish. The food is delicious and we have never had a bad meal here, sure the menu is small but everything is done to perfection, add to that some very reasonable pricing and you have a little gem!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 15 September 2011

I absolutely LOVE this place. Lovely for lunch with friends or family, lowly atmosphere, feels like you are sitting in Italy not great Yarmouth. The owners are so nice too always recognise you when you go back.
Have been here so many times.
More importantly the food is amazing, traditional italian, I always have the lasagne which is the best ever! Oh and also you get given coke out of a can, which always tastes the best!
