About Mamma Mia Pizzeria


Carmine is a native Italian chef with 25 years of experience cooking in some of the finest restaurants in UK and abroad before opening his own stall inside the Old Kent market in 2017.

His authentic Italian Pizza and Puccia is prepared using his own special dough recipe, which has already become popular among the locals along with his wide select of excellent pasta dishes.

Chef Carmine has also introduced the novel “pizza by the foot” experience. Rather than the traditional round pizza, order yourself a 1 foot, 2 foot or 3 foot long pizza to share with friends.

Mamma Mia is also one of the few places in Thanet that serves Puccia (pronounced Poochia), which comes from the Italian region of Puglia. The bread is made of pizza dough and is stuffed with meat veggies, salad and cheese. This is a Pugliese go to food of choice and for good reason, they are delicious.

  • 5 star review  Mamma mia Pizza is superb. I've been to loads of other pizza places and even the award winning ones I found disappointing. Mamma Mia has proper sour dough pizza, absolutely delicious toppings and authentic pizza baker. Love it!

  • 5 star review  When I say I'm qualified to judge this pizza, believe... I've lived in Italy for 8 years, I have Italian family and I also have a wood fired pizza oven. This this without a doubt the best pizza you will eat outside of Italy... I can't rate this high enough, dont waste your money on ANY other pizza

  • 5 star review  The best italian pizza ever, it is a must to visit this italian cuisine in the heart of the Old Kent Market. The pizza baker Carmine prepares the best and tastiest pizza in Margate, this enterprise is definitively worth a visit.

  • 5 star review  This is a fantastic italian restaurant serves pizza and variety of pasta dishes inside the old Kent market. Pizza is amazingly delicious and loads of flexibility in making your own pizza if you need. You can order small to super large size pizzas where you can enjoy it with a group of friends. Vegan meat and seafood pizza options. Salad pizza bowl is super good. Friendly fast service and this is family run business. Highly recommended.

  • 4 star review  Lovely pizza and my fussy daughter loved the pasta. The people serving were lovely with their charming Italian accent. I forgot to take a photo of my pizza I was so excited about it. The restaurant is not a restaurant as such, it is in The Old Kent Market where there are other food options. You order at the counter and you seat at the tables nearby among the hustle and bustle of the market.
