Description: This restaurant will be closed from Monday 20/03/17 to Wednesday 14/06/2017 due to rainy season. The restaurant Mama Mia belongs to two Italian young men, Mimmo and Alfonso. The former is in charge of the banqueting room, the latter is a young talented chef. The restaurant is characterized by a terrace overlooking the sea, and customers can even enjoy the opportunity of dining on the beach. The dishes suggested combine the high quality and freshness of local products with the talent of the chef.

“Good food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

Well located at the edge of nungwi beach, a simple set up. Very good pizzas, a shared meal for 2 and a beer at usd 15. A good lunch, would go there again for their dinner set up on the beach!

“Nice location, ok, but small and somewhat expensive food”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We had a pizza and salad. Food is descent and the location is very nice, but paying tsh 3000 for 0,33 diet coke is too much

“Good value for money”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We went to this place for an early evening Sunset snack. Around sunset it was happy hour everywhere in Nungwi while we were there, and the dealio around this place was: order a pizza/burger, get a drink for free. My girlfriend was not hungry, so one burger with chips and two fresh passion juices it was. It was not the best one ever, but for Tanzania decent, and a good portion. And they even gave us the second one for free, so at 5$ we were very satisfied.

“The pizzas looked pretty good but I had the risotto :(”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Anywhere else in the world, the view would get this restaurant a four but I preferred other restaurants in Nungwi! I generally prefer to eat more local dishes but if you're hankering for an Italian do give this a whirl. The pizzas look to be their specialties so I would stick to them.

I had the curry seafood risotto which was fine but overly salted and awkward to eat because the prawns hadn't been shelled before being chopped up and included - fine for other tastes, I am sure, but I didn't think to ask first.
