It was a last minute decision to eat out with a colleague of Martin’s from the US, and Mama’s is a good, consistent, Italian restaurant, and one that we know does a variety of veggie dishes as well as meaty ones. We had garlic and herb bread to start – the herb bread seemed a little stale which was a bit disappointing, but didn’t really detract from the meal. I ordered the Fuseli Pompeii again, Martin went for the Fettuccine Pesto, and our companion ordered something with prawns and chilli. We all enjoyed our meals, it is just a shame that Martin wasn’t feeling 100%, so he couldn’t finish his meal! Wow – it would appear that I have not ordered an arrabiatta pasta dish from an Italian restaurant for a while now – I must be feeling a bit ill!
