Yet again, another fantastic meal at this gem of a restaurant. We always bring friends here when they visit and it always hits the spot. A warm welcome, great atmosphere and wonderful food. Enough said!!

We have gone to Mamma Mia's for a good 15 years and it has always had simply delicious food, quickly sent out. Obviously a lovely family run restaurant. The waitress who served us was lovely (it was her first day and we thought she was fab.)

Just returned from a 2 day stay in York and visited Mamma Mia on Thursday night. Had not booked but not a problem and the food was fabulous. My pizza was lovely so crispy and gorgeous mushroom topping and my husband had spaghetti with meatballs which he thoroughly enjoyed great prices for York and would return

Not being an expert, but Mama Mia hit all the associations with an Italian restaurant. The staff was attentive and friendly and the food was excellent. High recommendation from me and the family.

No complaints from all of us, very accommodating for children and really friendly service. The garlic bread starter (with tomato) was amazing, as was all our mains.

We shared the "special" calamari rings, and prawns, and they were both pretty flavourless. We then both had sirloin steak, with chips, and they were no better, really tough and swimming in oil, no seasoning or sauce just an oily steak - possibly one of the worst I've had. The house white was also pretty bad - tasted very cheap.... More

to be fair, there was a birthday party going on in the back room. the lady running the drinks and cash register was lovely, born to the job. when i approached her personally saying that twice i had asked the waiter for drinks and still hadn't received them, she was most apologetic and brought them over herself. my guests claimed...

We took advantage of the early bird offer between 5.30 to 7, 2 pizza or pasta dishes for 11.95. both pasta dishes tasted great as did the garlic bread and child's pizza we had. Staff were lovely with our son and nothing was too... More
