By chance we came across Mamma Mia and so pleased we did. The service was impeccable and the food was beautifully presented and very well cooked. The atmosphere was good and prices very reasonable. A good wine list and extensive menu.

Booked here for 8 people but when 2 became ill we informed the restaurant and it was no problem. Arrived on time and were immediately seated. Friendly staff attended to our needs and soon the starters were out without being rushed. I had the antipasto, excellent. Main courses were ordered and we enjoyed a very palatable house red at a...

Have never been to this restaurant before but when I'm in York again would definitely be returning. A great menu not run of the mill. Service was just right not too slow and not rushed either. We had vegetation pancakes, farfalle mamma mia ( think that's what it was called pasta bows with leek and salmon) and a garlic bread.... More

Found by chance while looking for somewhere straightforward to eat while travelling alone in York. It is what it is, a Sardinian restaurant with friendly staff serving good food at a good price. And a nice glass of house red!

This restaurant is run by Sardians and they really know their business. The menu is imaginative and extensive and includes a specials board too. The ox liver and the veal were sublime and a carafe of the house red was delicious and excellent value. The staff were incredibly welcoming and should we return to York we will, without doubt, be...

I went to Mamma Mia's after a friend recommended it to me and it didn't disappoint. After a busy afternoon exploring York, I was glad to be welcomed and quickly seated by the friendly and welcoming staff. Being inside was like being transported to Naples! The menu had a great selection to choose from. I opted for a garlic pizza... More

We went here after an afternoon exploring York town, its in a really convenient location for this! The food was lovely, a proper authentic Italian that was great value for money. I would highly recommend the pizzas, but I will definitely be heading back to try a pasta dish, they looked delicious!The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were very... More

I would like to start by saying that I have been dining here for many years and the food is really good. However, the quality of the food has been the only pull for me because the staff are consistently rude, disinterested and only have time for certain customers. The last time we visited however I couldn't let it slide... More

I just wanted a nice homely meal as I was staying opposite this restaurant solo person they refuse me . Disgusting and rude.. Is this how they treat solo female I wouldn't bother given them any custom. It rather put me off now staying in York.. There I thought Yorkshire people were friendly. I got that one wrong ..

Thank julesh45
