If you’re a big fan of Italian cuisine, this is a must-visit. Big portions of true Italian food are fresh and of good quality with full-on flavours. The alfresco
dining area overlooks the aqua-blue Indian Ocean and offers warm weather even in winter. Visit for family outings, or with a group of friends for sundowners on a warm evening. Highlights: fritto misto di mare, pumpkin panzerotti and tiramisu. (EO mag 2014)
Could not agree more with the last review. Do not waste your time and money going to this restaurant. The attitude of the manageress was absolutely appalling. The problem with Mamma's is that they have gotten too greedy and can't care a damn about their customers.
What an absolute debacle for a Friday night. No door presence, we had to walk through the whole restaurant being ignored by everyone to find if any of the open tables were available. After our drinks being forgotten and 45 minutes after ordering our food we were told it should not be too long. After another 35 minutes I was ignored by the bald manager at the food hatch. After I insisted on talking to the manager I was informed that my food was never going to be prepared and that I should order something else. 90 minutes waiting to be told that I was at fault for ordering off the menu is ridiculous. It took 2 minutes to get my bill though. Priorities. Unforgettable, but completely miss able. Will certainly never return.
Marco has let his own restaurant down. He has no social skills. We visit on average once a week and he has never visited our table to greet us or enquire how we're doing. For this reason I award it one star. Some of his waiters are excellent while the rest are very mediocre.
The opening of a deli adjacent to Mamma Luciana’s restaurant has proved to be an instant suburban hit. Incorporating a café area with intimate tables offering sea views, they serve breakfast along with paninis and a harvest table at lunchtime. At the deli counter you can watch staff making pasta and gnocchi while you pick out freshly baked bread and imported cheeses and cured meats. Fridge space is dedicated to Italian juices, dinky bottles of Prosecco, heat-and-eat pastas and gelato. Store cupboard essentials cover everything from anchovy fillets to olive oil, instant pizza mixes, clams, pastas, brodo, crositini, biscotti and a smattering of Italian wine and grappa.
