Pay R290 for a 3 course meal for 2 and a bottle of wine at Mamma Roma (value R610)
Faithful fans of Mamma Roma’s need no longer travel to the suburbs to indulge with their favourite Italian dishes. Well known restaurateur Sandor invites you to the latest addition to the Mamma Roma group in Bokaap. Located in the decidedly upmarket 35 Rose Street, the look and feel of the décor is still the same but the interior is definitely more intimate. An added attraction is the abundant outside seating in a completely sheltered courtyard complete with tranquil water feature and safe underground parking right on the door step.
Begin the evening with a choice of two starters:
Melanzane Parmagano (layers of egg plant, topped with mince and napoletana sauce and served on a bed of rocket)
Insalata Verde (baby spinach, crispy bacon and rosa tomatoes with blue cheese and crostini)
The substantial main menu offers a generous selection of pasta dishes, deliciously crisp pizzas cooked in a wood burning oven will tempt the palate. Pasta specialities include the Italian sausage in Arrabiata sauce, and the Pescatore (mixed seafood in a tomato, olive oil and garlic sauce). The pizza menu offers all the well known favourite combinations as well as more sophisticated combinations like the Mamma Roma pizza with bacon, avocado and blue cheese, or the Bianca with Parma ham and camembert. When it comes to Seafood the Calamari is always a good choice. Take a look at the menu for a full selection of main meals.
Was your meal down with a complimentary bottle of red or white Diemersfontein wine.
To appease the sweet tooth, end your meal off with either:
A trio of sorbet
Tiramisu (Boudoir biscuits seeped espresso and Kaluha, and covered in Marscapone cheese - excellent with a cup of good quality Lavazza coffee!)
Ps - If you are looking for a function venue conveniently located in the centre of town, Mamma Roma has the solution. The dance studio (right next door) can accommodate 100 for cocktail functions, for which the restaurant will gladly cater. Alternatively if you prefer a seated function you could combine the restaurant indoor/ outdoor seating together with the studio for the dancing, as it has its own bar and is sound proofed! A variety of menus can be arranged depending on your requirements.
