We dropped in just for a quick pizza and Beer. Although the beach was busy with groups from the Cruise ships, Mam's was set up the hill and was not too busy. Excellent pizza (large one shared between two of us).

Where else but Antigua can you find a gem of a beach as Long Bay and a wonderful restaurant just steps away. Ran by Mama Rosie and Cecile, this restaurant compares to the the best Italian restaurants around the world. When eating there, tell them Mike from up the road recommended. My favorite is the gnocchi!!! But don't eat it... More

There are two choices for food on this beach, (Long Bay Beach), There is no question that this should be your choice. I had low expectations, I mean Italian in the Caribbean? Not likely to be good right? WRONG. It was amazing! Go here for good Italian food. Now, I realize I ate too much, so go after you swim,... More

Located above the beach at Long Bay, outside the village of Willikies, most of the clientele is from the beach. However we did see a few folks drive up. The restaurant is only open until 5:00 pm so get there early. The food is very good. We had lunch there on our first day on the island and then ordered... More

Although the welcome could be improved, come try the best thin crust pizzas on island or the gnocchi with a rich tomato, meatball sauce. We didn't have to wait too long to be served as there were no tourist ships in port. Even so there was a steady flow of customers of all nationalities. Mama Pasta's is one of our... More

I can see why some people think the people who run the place are rude, but if you approach friendly to them, they are nice too. If you can get over that first step, you will be rewarded with good home made food (their pizza crust is freshly made every day and super crispy!) and a pass to their bathroom... More

My husband asked the owner a couple of days ago if they served gluten-free pasta, to which she affirmed that they did. Today, when my husband arrived at lunch to inquire about the menu, the owner was very rude to him, and denied having any gluten-free. He was practically ridiculed and left the restaurant very upset. Mama if that's your... More

The place has a lovely view over the bay. The pizza and pasta is very tasty and their home made salsa is delicious! The host, Cecil, is also a very friendly guy. We would definitely come back!

Visited here while on cruise. Burgers were home made and very tasty. service was prompt and very friendly. WAY better than the beach bar down the hill, Worth the short walk up the steps.

The staff is very unfriendly. Restaurant and facilities are not open until noon. Long bay has great off the beach snorkelling, but there are no public facilities. The restaurants will not let you use the facilities, even with small children or persons with special needs unless you by something or pay a fee.
