We had a table of eight on a Sunday night. Though the restaurant also had a table of 40 for the same night next to us, the service and food was fabulous. The salads all fresh and varied. The Pizzas all different and the vegetarians in the group were well catered for with pastas.

We were so looking forward to eating at Mama Cucina as the reviews were outstanding. We started with a Regina pizza which was outstanding, but from there on it was down hill. I had the meat ball, not not meat balls on I think sweet potato. It was an oversized dried out meat ball with no sauce on roasted sweet... More

We booked a Sunday Lunch table. Strictly at 12:00 noon they opened. Friendly faces of staff everywhere. Professional in every way. I will eat here again and again. The pizzas we ordered were exceptional and prepared with style. Taste is out of another world. I will recommend Mama Cucina to every pizza lover that appreciates great service.

We shared the melon starter followed by a shared salad and pizza. The salad portion was enormous and would have been far too much for one. The service was rather slow even though they were not very busy but sit back, relax and enjoy.

We were directed here by the Royal Hotel on the basis that it was not only the top rated eatery in Riebeeck Kasteel, but also one of the few open on a Sunday night. Obviously popular, especially with locals, it is an adequate pizzeria and pasta restaurant. We were not overwhelmed. The service was excellent, the vibe good and the... More
