Alfonso arrived in London in 1996 and since then has aimed to recreate the ethos of Italian home cooking from his youth, focusing on serving traditional, peasant, rustic food.
Mamma Concetta opened in Bedford in 2018 and Alfonso works with his son Carlo.
Insisting on fresh produce Mamma Concetta uses only San Marzano Tomatoes & Fior Di Latte Mozzarella. The dough is fermented for a minimum of 24hrs using the original mother dough recipe, making the dough effectively a sour dough which is light and airy, the perfect authentic Italian pizza combination!
The atmosphere at Mamma Concetta is about an open door welcome, to feel part of the family… just like the feeling Alfonso had walking around the village of his youth experiencing the different cooking aromas coming from the open doors.
Eating has always been a family affair so please come to Mamma Concetta and join us!
