Celebrating 50 years


Welcome to Mamma Carmela, Italian Restaurant, located in Glenelg next to the ocean and the Glenelg Jetty. Celebrating 50 years of trade, we are proud to boast our wonderful cuisine and traditional recipes that have stood the test of time.

Speak to any local and they will tell you about the great food experience at the iconic Mamma Carmela’s. Established in 1974 with the current owners running the business since 1984, it’s a traditional family Italian cafe serving up the best pizzas and pasta seaside.

“It’s family and loyal customers first for the team at Mamma’s. “The people and locals here are great, it feels like we are on holiday working so close to the ocean. It’s fun to meet tourists and people from all walks of life…”

pizza secrets

Providing the yummiest, freshest pizzas has been a passion for Tony the star pizza maker. He’s been behind the pizza oven for the last 34 years. Of course, he has a secret ingredient he won’t tell us about in the base, making it crispy on the bottom, not too heavy, thick, or thin. Add the homemade pizza sauce on top, extra garlic, and locally sourced meats and you have a combination that has kept some loyal customers coming back for over 30 years.
