I love this place. Time stops, no noise, just the blue sky and the almond trees.

Childhood memories come to my mind...

Far from everything, just nature surrounding this wonderful place.

Sierra Espuña behind it. Enjoy the peace and quiet of it.

Mamma mia, Italian restaurant in Puerto de Mazarrón

Mamma Mia is located in the sporting marina area of the Puerto de Mazarrón and it's surrounded by the sea and the port. It also has breathtaking views over the Mazarrón Bay.

But what I like the most about it is its cosy atmosphere, its Italian flavour and, of course, it's Italian dishes! They are mouth-watering!
