We ordered pasta dishes and absolutely loved it. It is one of the best Italian restaurants in York. The ingredients are fresh and the pasta perfectly cooked. The price is reasonable.

My wife and I have eaten here twice, Christmas eve and tonight. We must say that the food and service has been brilliant. The starter portions are very generous, we had the calamari special and the pate. Both lovely and fresh. The beef stroganoff is amazing, lovely tender pieces of steak with a beautiful sauce. The garlic prawn dish is... More

Our regular place for lunch in York was closed due to re firb so we ended up at Mamma Mia, not a very wise choice. I started with a minestrone soup with homemade bread and I have to say it was very good, my partner had tomato garlic bread, I had a couple of slices, very nice. At this point... More

We are sorry you were disappointed with your visit to Mamma Mia, but thank you for your comments. Veal saltimbocca is a popular traditional Italian dish. As it is topped with prosciutto ham (a cured ham which is rubbed with salt) this makes the dish quite salty and therefore there is no need to add additional salt, which my husband... More

Came here midweek for a light supper and was not disappointed. Very hot melanzane al forne warmed me up on a cold evening and pizza to follow was crisp and generously topped. You would need to book at the weekend as this place is obviously popular.

We asked at our hotel and the receptionist suggested we try this one- she has been several times and it was within easy walking distance of our hotel even for us. We were early as we'd left ourselves more than enough time - a little disconcerting to at first almost but not quite being told to come back! Not to... More

We visited this restaurant as a family of 8 for a 12 year old's birthday. The service was poor throughout as we felt like we were being ignored as other tables were receiving plenty of attention and free bread etc. but we didn't receive any and even had to call a waiter over to place our order. When the food... More

Great little Italian just round the corner from the Minster. We hadn't made a reservation but they still accommodated us even though it did look very busy all round. Highly recommend the Tiger Prawns to start and both our starters and mains were very generous portions for the price we paid and all was packed full of flavours. Will definitely... More

The pasta is good, but the lasanga is awasome! One of the best I have ever had. In general the restaurant is not fancy of anything like that; it is a simple, honest priced italian restaurant with good food. Maybe there was too much oil in the tomato sauce for the pasta, but the lasanga was perfect. Go for it!

What a fantastic atmosphere and meal served on a cold December evening. Restaurant was very busy but the staff were attentive and efficient. Lovely busy, friendly, family feel. Very reasonable prices.Can't wait to return.
