This is one of the best pizzerias that i have been to in a long time,
The staff is friendly and service is good even when its busy.
The atmosphere is great in the evenings, and the food is fab.
Italian cuisine is my favorite cuisine out there, but most restaurants just don't taste very fresh, like your eating oil out of a can and you paid a lot of money for it .
its always missing something or just too greasy or disgusting.
I don't have that problem with Mamma Mia. The food is a good reminder of food the way it should be, fresh & tasty.
I don't always go to the restaurant, if I don't feel like being social, i order from the menu to go and enjoy it at home with a glass of wine.
I would definitely give Mamma Mia five stars and two or three thumbs up for their amazing food and effort that's going into the place. ;-)
I'm heading back to Dubai next week so i will be ordering delivery on the way back from the airport. it's me you guys, I'm on your fan page all the time :-)!!

This joint needs a complete work over. Service at lunch was very slow with unacceptable food quality
The Bruchetta toast was fine but the chopped tomatoes tasted like the inside of the refrigerator where they had sat for several days
The gilled chicken special was dry and tasteless
The spaghetti bolognesa tasted like it came out of a can
Hope they bring in new management soon I would not recommend this location to anyone

i liked the decor in this restaurant but i did't like the extra chairs around, colors are wonderful & it will take you to Italy but when you hear American music it will destroy it. service is good because it's small restaurant but usually when you go to Italian restaurant they serve you with delicious pastry but they don't have it. food is average, i was surprised because there is no pasta & the pizza is not wow :-( i was HAPPY to get discount by using my CITY CARD.. but i don't think i'll go there again...

I really don't agree with the grumpy reviews on here, we had a great experience. We had the cheesy garlic bread starter which was really delicious. The pasta sauces were fabulous, the bolognese and the arribiata were both delicious. We shared a carrot cake for dessert which was delightful. I visited with my kids who were visiting Dubai, it was a great night. We had a lovely time and will be back to try the pizza!

We decided to try this restaurant as we had the Time Out 2 for 1 voucher. The decor is interesting, homely and eccentric. The tableware and glasses however are horribly cheap and greasy.We were taken to our table with not one word from our waiter (who looked like the owner). There were 2 guys working in the open kitchen, disappointingly operating a regular oven as opposed to a stone bake oven (one of which seemed to double as a delivery boy). Also loitering about were 2 'waitresses' who couldn't take our order and seemed to do nothing but stand miserably and stare into space very near our table which was rather uncomfortable.
The menu is a mixture of a few classics and some bizarre combinations -hoisin duck anyone? I eat out regularly in Dubai and have eaten pizza all over the world, including Italy and must say this is the worst I have had. I chose the classic capricciosa. The base was like a reheated frozen biscuit, uninspiring tasteless mozzarella topped with a million slivers of old mushroom and artichoke. I had changed the turkey ham to pepperoni - the quality of which was poor and processed, but to my surprise this was added as an extra to the bill. When pointed this out the waitress was surly and flung the altered bill at me without a please or thank you. The pizzas are already over-priced for what they are.
I strongly suggest you think twice before visiting this place, there are many other great pizza places in Dubai - this one doesn't deserve anyone's hard earned cash.
