Went out for a meal, and found Mama Mia's. A family run business - so expect "mama" to castigate the other's .... Great ambience. The menu is Italian, but quite extensive and the food was delicious. The house wine in a carafe is the best...ever ! And the puddings - after two dinners in five days, now on a diet ! BOOKING required.More

The atmosphere is busy, fun, filled with voices in Italian. The food was excellent, the wine was excellent. All was served quickly and with good attention.

Most delicious dinner I had in a very long time. Busy cozy restaurant with friendly staff and food second to none. Superb fillet steak with port reduction and probably the best pizza I ever had. Thank you.

My partner and I visited York for the weekend and on Saturday evening had a table booked for 7.30. As we were walking we set off early so as not to be late. We were greeted by a gentleman who I presume was the owner....He promptly told us that we ere too early even though the restaurant was empty at the front. Never felt so unwelcome before will certainly not be returningMore

I went to Mama Mias's last night with some friends. The service, food and ambience were all second to none and the wine is very reasonably priced. Beautiful garden too. Thank you for making our evening so enjoyable.
