We have been to this restaurant on previous visits to the island but were really disappointed this time. The new menu falls well short of what we expected. If you want just pasta or pizza it was an ok meal but much better available elsewhere for less money. The Special menu was very limited. We cut our losses after the main course and paid the bill. Instead of ordering their desserts we popped into Opan for coffee and cake. Opan's offerings beat them hands down. Such a shame.

We went to Mamma Mia expecting a good experience, given it seems to be full up most nights and was actually turning people away on the night, but it was quite disappointing. The food was decent, but the service was impersonal and inattentive. Madeira restaurants normally have a great atmosphere but there was little of that here. We ended up leaving the money for our bill on the table and walking out, such was the wait. All in all, not great.

This restaurant was very close to the hotel we were staying and dined there on three evenings. It is based mainly on Pizza and Pasta but other dishes are available.
This restaurant is large and in a prominent position and therefore you can hardly miss it. On two occasions we had the Pizza option, quality and price was good with friendly service. For us the menu had it's limitations but like everything such opinions are always personal.
Dining there were couples and also some larger family groups so it does cater for a mixture of people. We did not book a table in advance and had no problem in being offered one when arriving early in the evening.

Pizzas are ok, service is ok but nothing special. Needs some live music or something to give some atmosphere.

We enjoyed 2 evening meals during our week in Funchal at this restaurant. Excellent value and beautifully cooked food, lots of choice on the menu and some lovely, reasonably priced wines. Staff were attentive and very helpful - special mention for Silvano who looked after us so well!
