“Ssssh Keep it a Secret”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

This is a hidden gem in a town that needs a lift. My wife & I ate here last Thursday. This is the first time I've had an evening meal here for a few years. We will back a lot sooner. The choice is excellent & main course prices at £6.95 & specials at £7.95 are unbelievable. The service was welcoming friendly but not overdone. The house wine was excellent. Two courses each & two glasses of wine & cost about £42. I hope they will open more evenings- we'll be back. Nigel & Jo

“Best Genuine Italian Pasta House Anywhere!”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

All food and sauces are Tony's own and freshly cooked. His Minestroni Soup is the best you will get anywhere.The restaurant is very small. Only Pasta foods available but fresh. Tony comes out and talks to all his customers. It is exceptionally good value. Two starters, two main courses, half Caraf of house wine, beer and coffee; less than £35.
The restaurant is styled as a "Tratoria" not a restaurant with only 24 places, tiled floors. Tony's celebration of the Italian World Cup victory adorns one wall.
It is only open for 4 evenings and lunch times per week and Booking is imperative.
An excellent experience when you perhaps don't want to spend all evening over a meal.

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!
