This popular dinning destination is named after the head chef’s mother, and as you can guess, all meals are handmade with love and care using recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation.
Each and every dish is made with passion by head chef Massimo and his highly skilled team, and you can taste the difference with each and every mouthful.

The menu is full of traditional Italian classics including a variety of chicken, veal, lamb and fish dishes, as well as a splendid choice of pizza and pasta dishes.

If you love pizza, then you simply must try one of Massimo’s homemade pizzas. He makes his own dough, which is then rolled out and spun in the air the traditional way, followed by a generous helping of homemade tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, and extra virgin olive oil – then covered in variety of fresh toppings. Once the pizza is complete, it is baked in a stone oven. These will be available in their newly installed pizza oven from February.

As well as offering a varied a la carte menu, Mamma Lina’s also offers an early bird set menu priced at £12.95 for two courses, which is available for lunch and early evening until 7pm.

Dishes on this money-saving menu include deep fried whitebait, sauteed mushrooms with a garlic and white wine sauce, and soup of the day for starters.

For the main course there’s salmon cooked with onions, prawns, white wine, cream and tarragon, breast of chicken cooked with garlic, olives, white wine, tomato and oregano, and also pizza with a choice of two
