I enjoyed the bacon, zucchini and cheese sauce pasta. Others at my table had sizzling steak and oxtail. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Lilongwe

Every time I return to Lilogwe, I make sure to stop at Mamma Mia's. The food is truely delicious, the staff very friendly and the location just so chilled and relaxed. I had Melanzane as a starter, almost as good as my nonna's - that's as close to perfection as it gets!! Pizza was crispy, thin, savoury - what else... More

Mama Mia is one of those places you go to get a very good meal. Tasty, hot and always consistent. Vibe is nice and menu is diverse. I always go for the same thing, but I appreciate friends who tell me how good their different food they are trying is.

I can't call myself an expert on Italian food, but to the best of my knowledge and the judgement of my tastebuds the food served here is very good, at least from what you can expect this far south of the equator. Judging by how full... More

I've been visiting this restaurant since I lived in Lilongwe 15 years ago. Consistently good Italian food, including wood fired pizzas, at reasonable prices. Friendly wait staff. Definitely recommend.

Once again Mama Mia has gone the extra mile to make Valentines dinner a memorable one. The focus, as always, is on customer service. The decor on the evening was special and the fresh roses for the ladies was a nice touch. The food and service is top notch. The oven baked lasagna is from another world. The manager/owner is...
