The ice cream and pasta at this place is delicious, and the price is pretty decent. Definitely worth a visit and a dinner. My only issue was that too many people are smoking, it feels like the 70s, but it is outside so I can't...More

I was disappointed with the food I had at other restaurants such as Istanbul where I found the calamari a bit tough. Portions were so generous I had leftovers for the next evening. Service was fast and efficient with a welcoming staff.

The food and the staff are amazing. The view is also great. The portions though in my opinion could be a bit more generous. I would recommend though.

Okay meal, we ate catch of the day and two pasta dishes. The pasta was fine, the fish was nothing special. A bit pricey compared to other places in the nearby area.

Description
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.
