Lovely food, however no check in or vac check done. Very odd.

We had a lovely dinner midweek at Mammas boy. The service was relaxed and excellent. Music was a little too loud for the small space and we did ask for it to be turned down, but I’m not sure it was.
My cottoleta was a little over cooked, others enjoyed their meals. Wide selection of drinks. I would come again.

Problems might have been caused by staff shortages coming out of lockdown but I ordered veal and I couldn't even finish it. It was fried and overcooked and one-third was so tough I couldn't even cut it with the supplied steak knife, let alone eat it. All it came with was some spinach. My friend ordered salad and potatoes as extras, both of which were fine. She had a fish dish which she said was excellent. I went for sweets to compensate for the disappointing main and ordered a lemon pavlova dish. Maybe I am not familiar with the latest trends in sweets but I would expect a pavlova to be firm, not hard but certainly not liquid-ish. It seems to me that the dish hadn't quite set but maybe it was meant to be like that. Either way, it was extremely rich. I would give the restaurant another try later on and hope I just struck teething problems with reopening after Lockdown.

We did the bottomless gnocchi in a group of 8 and LOVED IT! The service was friendly and attentive, they were generous with the bread, gnocchi and always made sure our cocktails were topped up. The gnocchi was absolutely delish - the truffle and mushroom is to die for. Definitely great value for money.
My only critique would be the chairs weren’t super comfortable but you’ll be pretty full off gnocchi to notice!

Delicious food and wine in an Italian Trattatori. A fun and happy environment with welcoming hosts and Otalian style music to match.

We did the bottomless gnocchi and cocktails event. The gnocchi was excellent but the cocktails were awful. They were made with some sort of pre-mix syrup which was so sweet you could hardly drink them

Bustling lunchtime sitting with friends, bottomless gnocchi and cocktails: it doesn’t get much better than that. What we couldn’t eat was offered to take home which was a lovely surprise. Great energy, terrific host.

We went for the bottomless gnocci and cocktails which is completely misleading. You can only share a plate, even if there’s 3 people dining, which is not disclosed until you get there. We didn’t get our food or drinks until 5.40 (session was from 5-7), and only after reminding the waitress. They deliberately bring food and drink out slowly to stop you eating and drinking too much. Food was good but service and experience was very poor.

Me and my partner went for our anniversary and we left very happy customers. The food was delicious, the lamb ragu is a must try and also the lemon meringue pie 👌🏻👌🏻. Staff were lovely and friendly and the Italian music playing in the background really set the scene.

Maybe due to reopening after Covid, we found the service slow, food not top quality and lukewarm, too noisy not the ambience we have been use to. We will leave it for a few months before we return things settle. Maybe it's under new management.

The restaurant is beautiful inside an out. A small restaurant which makes for a peaceful ambience inside, great for having a nice chat with your friend. Food is incredible! Homemade pasta by beautiful Italian nonni and the tiramisu is the best I have ever had. Incredible plus amazing service. Will highly recommend.

My cousins and I felt like we needed some traditional Italian food when we caught up last weekend, and I was so pleased that we all loved it. We ranged in age from 19 to 39, and we ordered a huge feast for 9 and we thoroughly enjoyed every last bite!
