Mamma Mia was founded in Grattan Street, Dublin 2 in September 2009. Since then it has grown more & more each year, including having recently expanded by opening their sister Late Night Bar & Venue 10 St Stephens Green and creating the venue's delicious menus.
Under the care of Sardinian head chef David Frigau and his expertise in traditional cookery techniques, homemade and traditional Italian dishes fill the menu, using only the very best of seasonal & local produce. Our sous chef Roberto Coter (Bergamo, Italy) has extensive experience, having worked in Italian kitchens in both Ireland and Australia after leaving his native Italy in 2009 and our traditional and classic Italian pizzas are the creation of pizza chef Ariel Garcia.
Owners Clint & Ruth Hamilton are highly inspired by their love & passion for both Italian food and the Italian way of life; evident in Mamma Mia's cosy, relaxed setting which has warm echoes of the Italian family lifestyle. Open 6 days a week, the quality of our food and wine speaks for itself and we look forward to welcoming you for a rich Italian morning coffee, a light and tasty lunch or a lingering evening meal accompanied by a smooth glass of wine!

"Authentic & Delicious"
I love my Italian grub....and I'm pretty hard to please at times. However myself and my partner stumbled accross this place one evening. Menu is excellent and oh my god...the fillet steak with peppercorn sauce would have your mouth watering. Everything is freshly cooked an of the highest quality. Quirky atmosphere too full of character. Looking foward to returning for the 10th time!!!!
"A little piece of Italy, tucked away in Dublin City"
We discovered this place while we were walking home to our hotel in Northumberland Road from a day of sightseeing in the City.
Authentic and generous servings of Italian food, very reasonably priced and a more than adequate wine list. Service is friendly and relaxed.
"Absolutely delicious food!"
This is probably the best pasta I have tried in Dublin - I came with Italian friends, and even they certified it as one of the best meals! The menu is small so they keep to their specialties, and rightly so: the gnocchi alla sorrentina were to die for, as was the tiramisu we had for desert. It was quite busy for a week night so recommend booking in advance. It's tucked away in the middle of a small street, so it might not be the easiest to find if you're not local.
"Traditional Italian grub and a great atmosphere!"
"If I could, I would eat here for every meal every day, for the rest of my life. Can not put into words how good this place is. Staff, food, wine, atmosphere 100%."
"Superb - definitely lives up to its reputation. Great food and top service"
"Great food, huge portions, lovely staff and they do take away pizza. So glad we live beside this gem!"
"Wow! It's small and off the beaten track but this is one of the most authentic best Italian eateries I've ever experienced! you won't be disappointed!"
"Great little Italian that's worth the trek off the beaten track. Simple menu with great pizza and pasta. Short wine list but great value and nice wines. Check it out, you won't be disappointed."
"This is that kind of place where once entered you want come back again and again."
What a great little spot, just off Mount Street. Small interior with an open kitchen, red checked table cloths for the small tables. They also have an outdoor area, which is covered and heated during the cool months. I was already impressed when I went in. And then the pizzas. They are all served on wooden blocks. These lovely thin-crusted (battuta) pizzas with very minimalist toppings. Excellent service, reasonable prices and fantastic pizza. I'll be back.
