Mamma Ristorante, in various guises, has been a west London fixture and firm favourite with locals for over 25 years. The current restaurant is on Richmond's Kew Road, easy walking distance from Kew Gardens, and the shops and transport links of Richmond. The décor is wonderfully quirky; the restaurant is decked out to look like a courtyard in Italy, complete with washing lines hung with clothes strung over the tables. As for the food, the extensive menu is full of authentic Italian classics, just like mamma used to make. Diners can choose from a range of tempting antipasti, salads, pastas and risottos, pizzas, meat and seafood dishes, as well as a range of classic Italian desserts. The fresh, tasty food, friendly service, affordable wine list and welcoming atmosphere all go down well with customers and ensure Mamma Ristorante will remain a Richmond institution for many years to come.

Amazing authentic Italian and great service. Came in on a busy night with a large party of 12. There were already two larger parties (20+) dining there, and not a single order of ours was wrong of forgotten, the food was fast (I mean like under 10 minutes fast-for a party of 12!!?!) and everything was fresh and delicious. Would highly recommend as it's by far the best restaurant I've been to...more
