La Mamma is an Italian osteria and also a Grapperia. Food can be enjoyed in a rustic and relaxed atmosphere. Maurizio Capezzuto, in the kitchen, Pepino Capezzuto and his wife Marie-Pascale in the restaurant invite to discover their passion for products from the traditional Italian cuisine.

No menu, just a blackboard with regularly updated suggestions..

But do not hesitate to ask for a specific dish not mentioned on the board.
Most of our products are sourced directly from Italian producers (pasta, fine meats, condiments, cheeses)

This passion for outstanding tastes is a legacy of our dad who loved cooking and introduced us to his recipes in his own . Typical recepies from " la Mamma"

Three key words : products - taste - quality.
Our frequent guests add: the warm welcome and being treated like kings in a professional way :-)

Recognised as a “Ospitalia Italiana” by the Italian Department of Agriculture, Tourism and Italian Economy and with the recognition of “Eccellenze Italiane” of which we are very proud.

Reservation strongly recommended..
