Our Story


Owned and managed by two families who both set up home in Wales in the 1990’s, the first Mamma Lina’s restaurant opened in Clifton Street, Cardiff.
Lina Intriglia, mother of current co-owner Massimo, was in charge and enjoyed five very successful years before retiring.

Massimo, who was running his own restaurant in Manchester at the time, teamed up with close family friend Gianluca Pandolfi and together made the decision to resurrect Mamma Lina’s.


Six years ago, they chose to open the new Mamma Lina’s in Rogerstone, Newport. Employing family members and using the same traditional recipes previously used in Cardiff, the restaurant was an immediate success. Within twelve months of opening they needed a larger venue, and moved to the 160-seater restaurant on Tregwilym Road that we still call home today.
