A fantastic terrace overlooking the ocean. Friendly staff and very nice owner. The pizza was the best I had in Zanzibar and the seafood was amazing, too. A must if you are in Nungwi.

You see the restaurant with a great view and nice interior, but don’t go for their pizza. Italian or not, it’s clueless people who make these pizzas. The bread is really boring and taste as if it’s not home made. Additionally, I suspect that they...More

Dear Jacob, first of all moderate your words. You are not allowed to define us "a tourist trap". You were really unpolite with my staff and I refunded you only to get immediately rid of you. By the way you really have some serious problem...More

The restaurant Mama Mia belongs to two Italian young men, Mimmo and Alfonso. The former is in charge of the banqueting room, the latter is a young talented chef. The restaurant is characterized by a terrace overlooking the sea, and customers can even enjoy the opportunity of dining on the beach. The dishes suggested combine the high quality and freshness of local products with the talent of the chef.
