Food is average and staff is very unfriendly. We have been there two times to give them a second chance.

The crew in this place is very nice. The food is really good, I wouldn't have expected such a good pizza in a bear restaurant/bar. We kept going back to this place for the few days we were in Zanzibar!

Very nice place if you want to spend romantic evening with your boyfriend/girlfriend or just meet with your friends. Beautiful views of the sea and the sunset, because the restaurant is located right on the seafront. Delicious and not very expensive food and drinks. Nice...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.
