Where are you going to refuel after a day's surfing at magnificent Mount Maunganui?! Mamma Mia of course!

With all the characteristics of a traditional Italian restaurant, Mamma Mia is an authentic slice of Italiano in the middle of fair NZ. Prepare to do a bit of shuffling! It's not the most spacious of restaurants, but that's half the fun. Settle down at a cosy table and let the good times roll!

Pizza bread and tomato bruschetta is always a good way to start, but don't go crazy, you've got some delicious mains ahead. If you fancy pasta, you can go simple with a beef and pork ragu or classic carbonara. For something more special try their seafood pasta or the traditional chicken ravioli. There are also a range of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options available - make sure to ask the friendly wait staff.

We don't need to tell you how sublime the pizzas are; you might as well get a bottle in whilst you're at it.

Wow!! The food and service at Mamma Mias was incredible, staff was super friendly and the food OMG it was divine, I had the blue cheese gnocchi and my fiance had the chicken stuffed ravioli with bacon, mushroom and peas and we couldn't fault either. The chocolate dessert was heavenly and definitely needed the cream and ice cream to help cut through the richness of the cake. Thank you Mamma Mia's

This is a superb traditional Italian restaurant. It is always full and for good reasons. The food is some of the best in town, from starters to deserts, refined and well-prepared with the flavours always consistent and balanced. I have trouble saying enough positive things about this place. The sensation is overwhelming, my wife and I struggled to eat as slowly as possible so that the experience would not end.

Lovely staff, fast service and above all, AMAZING food! We had the prawns and scallops pasta and Mafiosa pizza. Cannot recommend the pasta enough, I’m not a mega seafood enthusiast but the creamy sauce is hard to look pasta. Pizza was awesome too. Thank you so much for having us!

This little Italian restaurant is quite gorgeous and inviting,to look at, but the food leaves some room for improvement. We knew that a couple of dishes were not available through first table which was fine, but once seated it was explained to us that no red meat dishes were either. And they were out of two more dishes. It left our menu somewhat restricted! I then ordered a glass of wine, to be told they were out of that too. The food was not bad by any means, but it lacked excitement. My caprese salad could have been dressed with a nice balsamic glaze, my seafood pasta would have been next level with a little lemon and some parmasan, my husbands pizza bread was very dry, and to be honest, with two Italian restaurants under their belts, should they not be making their own pastas?

Entrees where a little bland and water was warm bit the mains where out of this world desserts where also gd also we had a amazing lady looking after us which made everything prefect .Would recommend and thank you again for your great service

This was a return visit. We enjoyed ourselves so much last time that we wanted to bring our friends along. Between us, we tried a pizza, a pasta and the chicken dish and all were happy with their choices. Knowing my husband, had enjoyed the chicken so much last time, I decided it was my turn to try it and it was exceptionally good. The service was attentive and efficient.

Entrees are a generous size and has so much flavour. The pastas are so rich and creamy without being to overpowering. Food is served quickly and always to a high standard. Staff are lovely and very efficient. Would highly recommend this place to try

Been wanting to try Italian for a while and very pleased we went here. Food was Absolutely Delicious. A cozy restaurant, with nice atmosphere . Only comment was the Water, could taste & smell the chlorine, so assume it was tap water. Filtered & Chilled water would have made this Perfect.

The food was very tasty. I understand that the steak was not included in the first table menu, but I would have had steak if I could have as it had been recommended. Got asked if everything was alright a few too many times but could not fault the food or the sunny waitress.

Delicious pasta dishes. We were disappointed that the restaurant had run out of arancini balls and there were not too many other options on the entrée menu that interested us.
Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and great service. Highly recommend the prawn and scallop pasta dish!

Loved it. Atmosphere was great. Nice music playing. Food was amazing. Just a little disappointed to be charged extra for the small amount of extra parmesan cheese that we asked for. Have been to many Italian restaurants and never had this charge before.
