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 staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was homely. A great place to experience generous portions of authentic Italian food at a reasonable price.
The bbq chicken pizza and prawn penne pasta were lovely. We also enjoyed the savignon blanc. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We had a lovely evening.

Excellent service and good food. Definitely will go back and can recommend to all. The manager is so friendly and helpful and made the dinner extra nice.
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.
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.
Very good service , good selection of menu, fresh and delicious food, overall a great meal choice. Would definitely go back, good place to celebrate with friends and family.
Nice ambience and the food was ok but service was ridiculously slow. We waited almost an hour for our main courses (pasta) and consequently missed the start of our show at NIDA.
