How can I resist you? It’s impossible, really. With an unbeatable Old Town location right in the city centre on Spittal Street, Mamma Mia keeps busy just from passing foot traffic. But it’s the atmosphere and amazing food inside that really keeps the crowds coming back. Specialising in traditional southern Italian food and frivolity, Mamma Mia is the only place in Stirling with a truly authentic Italian ambience, with laughter and the clanging of plates accompanying the clink of wine glasses and heavenly smell of freshly cooked classics. Try some sizzling calamari, handmade pasta or one of Mamma Mia’s changing regional specialties from Bari and you’ll see that this Italian joint has a lot more going for it than its charming medieval surroundings. Though that does add to the romance of it all.
Nice little restaurant within walking distance of Main Street on way up to castle. Very well looked after by the manager and waiting staff without feeling hovered over. Food was fresh and tasty. Portions a bit on the big side-so much so no one managed dessert.
Intimate, warm & friendly restaurant with absolutely amazing food. Love it & cannot recommend highly enough. My third visit & each has been a very high standard of service & food.
Brilliant & authentic tasty italian food . A throughly enjoyable night, the staff friendly and helpful . I would highly recommend Mama Mia to anyone.
So I booked a table for me and this absolute hunny to go for dinner. We walk up to the place after a cheeky bev and it's dark. The restaurant was closed, but just gave me an excuse to take her out again. And I've been here before and it's smashing
The food at Mamma Mia is very good and justifies the high prices. However, the portions are smaller than expected from a restaurant like this. We could have added sides but that would have pushed the price even higher. I enjoyed my risotto, for example, but there just wasn’t enough and adding potatoes would have spoiled the dish. A bit more rice, fill the plate and I would have been delighted. My arancini were magnificent as a starter and the tiramisu was best I have had. Service was friendly, tolerant of our efforts to pronounce the order and knowledgeable but not intrusive. There is a lot to like about this place and I will probably go back when I feel rich enough to buy sides!
The restaurant is a bit of a 'Tardis', bigger on the inside than it looks from the outside. It has a typical Italian menu. I opted for a pasta dish as I was running a marathon the following day. The food was good quality and well presented. Service was mainly friendly and efficient. The man running the restaurant looked a little serious but the young people serving were friendly and helpful. If you are looking for decent quality Italian food at a reasonable price in the centre of Stirling this fits the bill.
We had not been for a couple of years. The menu is a bit limiting from what it was. Saying that, our food was tasty and the staff were extremely pleasant and efficient. There was always a rustic feel and good atmosphere in the place, however the fabric of the restaurant is now a bit "care worn" and tatty. A shirt hanging up behind the door and litter and bags stuffed there as well? A bit disappointed from our previous experiences.
Food good but my main course wasnt very big. ALthough we picked the early menu my wife gave me 1/2 of hers as mine was very small. We paid £17.95 each which was cheaper but still enough to get a decent size main course portion.Felt staff were not relaxed (they were very nice) as the manager was charging about and not very pleasant.
The staff were welcoming and extremely attentive and friendly at all times. The quality and presentation of food was lovely,although not huge portions. Was very surprised no pizza on menu but for us we had enough choice. I would definitely recommend and go back.
Party of 4 on a Friday night. We had speedy service, with lovely food and wine. Second time we have been and will be again. Travelled from Peterhead and booked in advance. Well worth a visit!!!!
