Mamma Pita in Northcote is all about serving up a passionate Greek storm. Inspired by ancient Greek and Middle Eastern cuisines, this Melbourne restaurant is a firm favourite for very good reason. Set within a lively and vibrant space on High Street, all the dishes come served in either a housemade pita wrap or in a Greek serving pan called tapsi. Sourcing high-quality produce and ingredients is of the utmost importance at Mamma Pita and all the meat used is hormone-free, organic and locally sourced. Cooked over a charcoal and lava grill, the flavours are some of the best we’ve had in Melbourne. A huge statement, yes, but it’s really that delicious. Feeling curious about Mamma Pita?

If you’ve got a hankering for a Greek souvlaki, Mamma Pita Melbourne has you seriously sorted. We love the Mamma’s classic gyros pita filled with smoked lamb, salad, chips and tzatziki or the Cypriot pita loaded with halloumi, salad, Mamma Pita’s special sauce and chips. If you’re not feeling the souvo vibes, this Northcote Greek restaurant also boasts all manner of tasty mezze dishes. Think fresh olives; halloumi chips (a must); salt and pepper calamari and dips like baba ganoush; hummus and tarama.
As for the main event… we are all about the lamb kofta that comes served with herbed pilaf and hummus; the kontosouvli of slow-roasted chicken skewers, Greek salad, chips, fresh pita and tzatziki or the gyros tapsi made with your choice of chicken or lamb, Greek-style chips, salad, and pita served in a large serving pan. We also advise saving room at Mamma Pita for the loukoumades, traditional doughnuts rolled in cinnamon and sugar and served with your choice of topping – we love the salted caramel with roasted nuts or the classic honey and walnuts.
