Waiter took our order for drinks but failed to bring them to us! Was more attentive to the large parties around us. Had to ask again for order. When ordering our meal he disappeared to the corner to dim the lights and turn up music for yet another "happy birthday" song whilst I was talking to him! Food was not... More

No problems this time - we all ordered different items from the menu and were all pleased with our meals. Service was friendly and... More

This is a superb place to visit for an evening meal but, if you want lunch here, then they offer a very reasonably priced special lunch menu. If you... More

Down to Christchurch for one night and chose La Mamma based on reviews. We were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome, asked if we had any seating preference and shown to our table. We did not spend long perusing the extensive menu as we had previewed on-line earlier. We chose a pizza and lamb shank. Both arrived in good... More

A very busy, friendly Italian restaurtant with a good menu featuring a wide range of starters, pizzas and pasta mains and of course lovely deserts. Make sure you book as this place is very popular throughout the year!
