When you stay in a B&B you need to eat out every evening. Sometimes we went somewhere upmarket and expensive, but some evenings we just wanted some plain home-made style cooking. I have stayed in the Newlands area about five times but never been very adventurous in looking for new places when seeking just an ordinary night out. This year I looked around and found mama Roma. If I say that we were only staying around the area for five nights and we went to Mama Roma twice- that kind of explains how I feel about it. Food is good. Variety as enormous as you usually get at an Italian style restaurant. But a word of warning. The place is always very busy. It is essential to hone and book preferably a day in advance to secure a table. I am obviously not the only person who likes this place. Staff and service excellent despite it being so busy.

LEMON PRAWNS, LEMON PRAWNS, LEMON PRAWNS!
Such a good local family run Italian restaurant.
We have been coming here for years, and we always look forward to our visit & we are never disappointed.
It's just a super place for an informal but great quality meal with attentive service.
