We had dinner twice and both times we had a good time and good food. We don’t expect wine or mozzarella to be like in Italy in a remote place like Zanzibar especially for an affordable price. So we were pleasantly surprised with the quality...More

The catch of the day and the prawns were superb washed down with a couple of bottles of Tusker! The view is spectacular and it's a great place to hang out and watch the dows come and go.

We tried the pizza, which were OK, but the pasta could not be recommended. It’s meat had a lot of fat and were undercooked. The spagetti were not good, and the carabonara felt dry and too salty.

Dear Gemma, we are sorry you didn't get a nice experience. By the way our pizza is homemade and cooked in a wood-fired oven. Best regards.

Mama Mia was very tasty and has a great atmosphere. Only thing holding me back from 5 stars is that it is a little pricier. The food was delicious and fresh!

Dear Josh, we reopened yesterday after the rainy season and as usual I was in my restaurant all the day. And as usual we were full. In two years I accepted all kind of complains but it's really hard for me to believe your words....More

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.
