Oi Mamma, a trendy new Italian restaurant, has opened today in the city’s Bearsden neighbourhood. The flamboyant design of the new restaurant is infused with friendly Italian hospitality while honouring the strong, extroverted, and passionate nature of the much-loved Italians.

In Glasgow’s sought-after area, the Instagram-friendly eatery offers affordable dining while reinventing Italian cuisine. Offering a vibrant space designed to impress customers, with the goal of creating stylish Italian hospitality and connecting with a younger neighbourhood customer.

The design is elegant and vibrant, creating a celebratory space that reflects the fun cuisine, signature cocktails, and lively atmosphere of Oi Mamma. Serving up an impeccable shade—shaken, not stirred, Olive green with soft nudes and warm coral colours run throughout the restaurant space. The 80– seat restaurant  spread over two floors offers a sophisticated and tranquil sensibility mixed with “Insta-worthy” designs and stylish accoutrements, a modern bar and dining booths with custom neon signage.

Mixing classic Italian recipes with a modern Mediterranean twist, the menu takes centre stage at Oi Mamma offering playful, generous and authentic food. Dishes include Nduja Hummus, Sourdough flatbread; Whole Lemon Sole on the bone served with Brown Butter, Shrimps, Samphire, Amalfi lemon and Tagliolini with Pecorino Basil & Creamy Burrata. Every day, Oi Mamma’s kitchen will make fresh pasta, and a variety of pizzas will be available, all made with dough that has been proofed for 72 hours to maximize flavour and ensure a light and distinct crust. There is also a ‘Mamma Specials Board’ offering large plate sharing dishes including Lobster Spaghetti and Tomahawk steak.

Oi Mamma Director, Amalia Colaluca said:

“Our lively and stylish, family-friendly restaurant offers the neighbourhood’s residents a fresh spot to eat and drink for lunch and evening. Our family-focused Italian culture served as the inspiration for our restaurant idea for Oi Mamma. We aim to honour the beloved Italian extroverted, passionate, and outspoken personality while remaining faithful to our families’ traditional heritage and warm Italian hospitality”. 

Oi Mamma is the first Italian focused restaurant brand from entrepreneurs Amalia Colaluca and Joe Lazzerini- the team behind The Loveable Rogue. Since 2020, they have opened three restaurant concepts in Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
