Description: 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.

We went on the recommendation of our family particularly to sample the beef ragu. Disaster no ragu had been prepared due to them being flat out for the music festival, so were forced to try the chicken & mushroom rigatoni and the lasagne both absolutely delicious!
Went 2 nights later for the ragu and that was definitely worth waiting for, nice atmosphere and very pleasant staff/owner, would certainly recommend, the house red is good too!

Revisited Looe after a good few years. Decided to stay for tea. Found Mamma Js and boy were we glad we did. We are partial to Italian pizzas and seeing the wood fired oven we expected great things. They didn't disappoint.
We had antipasti to start which was amazing-good sized portion and VERY tasty.
The rustic pizzas arrived hot with fluffy crusts. We managed desserts as well & hubby had tarquin pannacotta-wow! I had lemon sorbet & ice cream which was refreshing & not too sharp.
Hubby noticed some Italian gins which he tried &they were so flavoursome.
The owner was friendly & knowledgeable.
Shame it wasn't on our doorstep!
Would definitely recommend-you won't be disappointed.

Just what Looe needs! Sat in and had take away. The pizzas are lovely and fresh and cooked very quickly so no waiting around. I really hope this little gem is still then on my next visit to Looe. Staff are friendly and welcoming too.
