Show your Mother how much you care, by treating her to a meal to remember at one of the capital’s hautest dining spots


  • 1. Bunga Bunga

    This year, Bunga Bunga has decided that our legendary Mammas deserve more than one special day to be celebrated and thanked. Translation? Throughout March, Bunga Bunga will be laying on an extra special feast for Mamma: expect a fine antipasti selection followed by a pizza or primi dish (lamb, tuna or arancini), and some delicioso gelato. Then, for an even more sparkle filled Grazie mille Mamma! gift, state 'My Mamma is the best!' when booking and you'll both receive a complimentary glass of Prosecco on arrival. Perfecto!
