Mother Teresa herself was actually Albanian – they named their main airport in Tirana after her, in fact – but that hasn’t stopped Mamma Teresa Italian Restaurant in Kingsford from naming their establishment after her. She was a bit of a hero after all, and while her love of Italian food is not particularly recorded, the Italian favourites on offer at Mamma Teresa might be enough to change her mind. You can find them down on Anzac Parade in the south of Sydney, where they offer up Italian specialities from 5pm every day. Book a table now.
Italian food is always popular in Sydney, and usually that means a trip out to Leichhardt and Norton Street. Mamma Teresa Italian Restaurant is not in that area – you can find them down on Anzac Parade in Kingsford, right by the University of New South Wales – but they certainly offer a take on Italian cuisine that is as authentic as any found in the Inner West. They pride themselves on doing the classics well, with pizzas and pastas on offer that are the envy of many an Italian restaurant in Sydney.
Family favourites are the order of the day at Mamma Teresa in Kingsford, so let us talk you through a few of the options available. There are pepperoni and napolitana, of course, and even a bacon and egg Australian pizza, as well as gourmet pizzas such as the Oceania – prawns, scallops, calamari, mussels, fish and basil – and Mediterranean lamb. Throw in a huge range of pastas, veal and chicken dishes and house specials and you’re well on your way to a big night out on Anzac Parade in South Sydney. Book a table now and make a move on Mother Teresa.
The owners are SO kind and caring and made our delicious dining experience extra special. They go out of their way to look after their guests.
Delicious food, best chips I've ever eaten, salads were nice and pasta was delicious. We came for a birthday party and they were very nice to us and even entertained the little ones 😋
They have great quality of food, the restaurant boasts a very pleasant atmosphere, and the staff are very friendly, courteous and pleasant to deal with.
The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was homely. A great place to experience generous portions of authentic Italian food at a reasonable price.
Food and atmosphere was excellent, and staff were friendly. The only negative comment is that we didn't get any service at the end of our meals when the restaurant started getting busier. We wanted to order dessert and coffees but gave up because it took too long to get service. It has however, always been one of our favourite go to restaurants. Thank you.
Really enjoyable meal - crisp buttery garlic bread, good pizza and pasta and they have so much more on the menu. A good local restaurant that has been hit hard by the light rail works, so if you feel like a change from one of the many Asian eateries around, give this place a try.
A very pleasant real italian eatery, not expensive, fresh tasting food. God variety on the menu, i would dine there again for a fairly fast pleasant meal.Service was a bit odd, very slow on ordering and rinks and very fast on food delivery and then very slow on being able to pay the bill.
Service was terrible. We were under time pressure bcoz we had an evening mtg coming up. We tried to attract the waitstaff's attention but they ignored us. And they forgot to give us one of the dishes we ordered - a salad. That said, the pizzas, when they came, were excellent. Full marks to the chef/s. And the ambience of the place was nice.
Plenty of menu options, even fussy eaters are covered here. Food was fresh and arrived hot. Friendly service, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. My family and I would eat there again.
Lovely, clean Italian restaurant with reasonably priced dishes and plenty of variety. We come here once a week to get our fix. Real cosy feel great for a date or a family dinner.
