The owner, Giulius Iapino of Rigatoni Corp., noticed the lack of all-day offerings, from coffee to midnight snack. He wanted to bring Rome to the Philippines by creating a concept where customers can have lunch and dinner yet still manage to party after.

In the Philippines, mothers tend to spoil their children with food, assuring that everyone is welcome and full at the end of each meal. Mamma Mia aims to bring the comfort of a mother’s love inside the restaurant. Bearing this in mind, they showcase a diverse selection of Italian classics, ranging from wood-fired pizzas to hearty entrees. Each dish is thoughtfully prepared using high-quality ingredients and traditional cooking techniques, capturing the essence of Italian comfort food.
From the classic Margherita to the beloved Vongole, every bite at Mamma Mia is like a culinary journey through the regions of Italy. The commitment to authenticity extends to the use of fresh herbs, imported meats, cold cuts, and cheeses, and premium olive oil, ensuring an unparalleled dining experience that captures the true essence of Italian cuisine.

For starters, try their Insalata Con Mango E Prosciutto (Php 400 for solo, Php 605 for sharing). The salad is made with walnuts, grapes, and mangoes wrapped around thinly sliced Parma ham, complete with Parmigiano dressing and parmesan cheese.

Pasta lovers will find paradise here, as they have over 20 kinds of pasta to choose from. We recommend their most popular pasta, the Spaghetti Carbonara Creama (Php 540 for solo, Php 1,800 for sharing), a rich pasta dish with pamesan cheese, black pepper, and guancialle topped with mozzarella cheese.

Italian food isn’t complete without pizza! One of their best-sellers is the Crema Di Tartufo Con Prosciutto Crudo (Php 650), a pizza with truffle cream sauce, prosciutto crudo, tons of mozzarella, and topped with an egg.

Another favorite is their 6 Cheese (Php 650), an all-cheese pizza made with six kinds of Italian cheese and served with either red or white sauce.

Mamma Mia knows that a lot of customers aren’t into the crust of the pizza, which is why they leveled up their pizza by adding cheese inside the crust. We’re sure you’ll be devouring the crusts and leaving Mamma Mia with a clean plate.
They also serve different classic Italian dishes such as the Porchetta (Php 820), a roasted pork roulade served with mashed potatoes, gravy, and mixed salad; not only is the meat tender but it is also flavorful, best paired with their savory gravy or on its own.

For a perfect ending to your meals, try their homemade tiramisu, panacotta, chocolate dome, and many more.
