I wasn’t originally going to write about this restaurant, although it is very good. However, upon visiting it for the second time, I figured it deserved a shoutout. Mama Eat not only serves delicious Italian cuisine (think lots of pastas, meats, pizzas, sandwiches/paninis, and salads), but also offers gluten-free versions of each dish.
According to their website,
“Mama Eat is the first restaurant with a menu for celiacs! Who has this problem knows how difficult it is to go with friends in one place for an evening spent in the company and be able to freely order from the menu what you preferisce.Ma because feeling out of place or uncomfortable or even give up the pleasure of a pizza with friends when you can enjoy a gluten-free product, in a safe way?”
I did not photograph either meal I had at the restaurant, but I can tell you that both meals I ate were delicious; Penne alla Sorrentina (Pasta with tomatoes and smoked mozzarella) and Bucatini alla Siciliana (Pasta with tomatoes, aubergines/eggplants, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese). All dishes are reasonably priced around 10€, and gluten-free options are usually only 1€ or 2€ more than their gluten counterparts.
If you’re looking for a quick meal in Rome with friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere, Mama Eat is a great option (especially if you have Celiacs or are gluten intolerant). The restaurant is located on Via di San Cosimato, and has a second location in Naples (located on Via Alessandro Manzoni, although I have only eaten at the restaurant in Rome). You can see a copy of the menu here.
