Inspired by family recipes with simple ingredients and the fullest flavours, Mamma's Restaurant is all about sharing quality food with the people you love.

Boasting a central location in the holiday paradise of Mount Maunganui, their sheltered terrace is the perfect place to while away a summer’s evening. Inside, rustic details such as strings of dried chillies and wooden chopping boards create an atmosphere that’s every bit as warm as the service.

Enjoy locally-sourced menus with an Italian focus. Think a wide selection of pastas including creamy chicken carbonara, filling meat dishes and delicious pizzas with gluten-free bases.

Can’t get enough of creme brulee or are you more of the tiramisu type? You’re in luck. Both are on offer alongside many more classic Italian sweet treats.

Mama’s Restaurant is the newer offering from the team behind Mama Mia, a much-loved local favourite that wasn’t big enough to keep up with demand. Book a table and see what all the fuss is about.

An amazing restaurant to visit while you’re at the Mount! We were up from Wellington and came across it through the First table website. Wish we had known about it during previous visits but now we know and will go whenever we’re up that way. Fantastic, speedy service and delicious food! We have a wild 3 year old who can be a bit fussy. She ate heaps and absolutely loved it. We sat outside which was a really nice spot, cool atmosphere and nice to see the Mount in the background. Can’t say enough about this place! Awesome find and recommend to all!

Three of us went along for dinner. We started with garlic bread which was the best I have tasted in years. Followed by two steaks and a Ravioli dish, all of which was perfectly cooked and tasty. I followed this with an Affogato which nicely completed a great meal. The service was fantastic the whole way through.

My friend and I booked this restaurant as it was the only one available at such late notice after deciding to go out for dinner at very late notice. I think as the restaurant is just finding it's feet, it isn't quite as busy as some other restaurants on this website. Do not let that discourage you in any way!
The location is beautiful and if dining on a nice evening, the seating outside is beautiful sitting the the stunning Mount in view and the gorgeous palms.
The waitress was very friendly and attentive.
Food was delicious!! The arancini balls were AMAZING, we ordered 2 portions, 1 for starter and another to go with our mains! Yum!
The carbonara was as lovely as the reviews and so was the gnocchi.
Pleasantly very surprised and will definitely go back. Thanks Team :)

Went out with my in laws and they said one of the best steaks they'd ever had. I had the steak with the coffee sauce and it was just so so good. Then I had the brulee and my daughter was going to just try a bit - well she was stood up eating it - finger in the bowl afterwards. It really was that good. We are all definitely going back. The waitress was so lovely, very quick service and food was amazing. 10 out of 10 from me!

I didn't read the address properly and went to the other Mammas Restaurant first so check that. I was delighted to discover the correct place was light, bright and airy which suited the beautiful sunny day. An excellent meal from start to finish served by lovely people. We shared the brushetta to begin. The ciabatta lightly toasted and piled high with finely chopped fresh tomatoes got the tastebuds going. My potato gnocchi with a blue cheese sauce and caramelised walnuts was just beautiful. Nothing left on my plate, nor my husbands who thoroughly enjoyed his carbonara. The garden salad we shared was the perfect accompaniment. We both chose the Creme Brulee to finish. The creamiest of custard topped with a decent layer of crunchy toffee. Mouthwatering. The Menu had regular main meals plus Pizzas and Pasta Dishes so there is something for everyone.

Beautiful indoor outdoor atmosphere, great food. Steaks were cooked perfectly, my mate raved about the Chicken main, beautiful desserts. We all agreed, the ultimate best ever garlic bread!! Thank you for a great experience.

This restaurant is in a lovely spot at the mount, away from the main street and almost at the base of the mount. Stunning outside area to sit, but plenty of room inside if you prefer. Food was good, I had a pasta dish, and my partner a steak, both very good, although I found the pasta a bit rich, but that's my personal take on it, my partners steak was gorgeous, and I wish I had chosen that. Desserts were lovely, not too much to choose from, if nothing takes your fancy take a 5 minute stroll around the corner and get a Copenhagen ice cream. Happy with the service and overall impressed, will go again.

What a great experience we had from this amazing resturant. From the moment we arrived the staff were welcoming. We started with the olives to share and they were super yum. We then had the eye fillet with blue cheese sauce and also the coffee sauce...YUM. The prawns and scallops pasta just perfect. We couldn't resist something from the desert menu to finish off a perfect evening. Keep up the fabulous food and service we will definitely be back.
