We have been here a couple of times and would thoroughly recommend. The kids meal is perfect for under 11s and the adult pizzas are huge and delicious. The seafood starter deserves special mention - really good!!!

Been here a couple of times. Not cheap and a bit of a wait. Well worth the wait for quality and delicious food. Cannot fault the place or the friendly staff and service. You get what you pay for and is well recommended

Have visited Looe for years and have always bypassed this restaurant for some unknown reason. Finally bit the bullet and was pretty much bowled over. The pizza was fantastic and as for the butternut squash ravioli.....superb. Ultra thin pasta and so tasty. Staff also charged...More

Mama J’s is more than just a restaurant; it’s a warm, welcoming family kitchen where everyone can feel at home. We’ve recreated authentic Italian comfort food, as perfected by generations of Mediterranean Mamas, and we cook the Italian way – in our traditional wood-fired oven. To do our recipes justice, we buy the ripest, most flavour-oozing, lusciously fresh produce from Cornish farms and fishermen, and finish them with authentic ingredients imported from Italy.
