“Yummy Pizza... but bring your bug spray!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

This pizza restaurant was suggested to us by a local. He said it was some of the best pizza in Rio. He was right. Lots of creative combinations, which made for a yummy variety of choices. Great wine/beer list. The environment was so nice! If you're going with kids, get there by 7pm. Anytime after that and this place turns into a club for the young and hip locals! Funny thing about this place, they left a giant tree going through the middle of the building while constructing it. It looks REALLY cool, but it has tons of little gnats. So wear long sleeves, or bring some bug spray to keep the bugs at bay!

“Outstanding Pizza in Rio de Janeiro”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I was visiting Lage Park in Jardim Botanico and one of the relatives suggested a pizza dinner nearby. Mamma Jamma is located a few blocks away, so we decided to go there. I only checked TA after I was already seated and eating a delicious Margherita Gourmet pie and I was not all that surprised. They know how to prepare great pizza. The service was fantastic and the food superb. I would strongly recommend a visit.

“Excellent experiance”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

Hi all, this is not the first time me and my family come to this restaurant. And this is the major reason I'm making this review as all the times it has been a pleasure to come.

Pizzas are allways excellent and new toppings are also alleays comming to the menu. I would recommend the "Alho Poro" and for desert the one with Dulce de Leche! Are awsome!


The service is usually quick and well done.


The cost benefit is excellent. Good price!

“Rio's best pizzaria”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

The best pizza in Rio. Better than Braz and Capricciosa in every ways. Taste the flavors Pepe Marmelata (brie with pepper jelly) and, for dissert, Doce Deleite is an explosion of flavors.

“Pretty tasty”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

I think Braz is better but I like Mamma Jamma more. I feel like it's friendlier and the pizza is still really good.
