We ate here several times for both lunch and dinner during our time in Nungwi. Each time the staff were very friendly, and the pizzas were great. Other dishes we tried were also very tasty, but the pizza is the best thing here.

Dear AfricanQueen67, thanks for you review. Our pizza margherita costs 13.000TZS (5,8$/5€), it is made with Italian ingredients and cooked in a wood fired oven. I really thinks it's a really good quality/price choice. About the drinks we only use the best international brands and,...More

As much as I enjoyed local food in Zanzibar, there's always a good moment for Italian food! All the dishes we tried were really good, I especially enjoyed the octopus. Very friendly staff and a nice atmosphere.

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.
