It all began in 1950’s when Angelo "MAMO" Mammoliti left his hometown of commune of San Giorgio Morgeto in Calabria, Italy and moved to South of France in search of a better life for him and his family. 

With only a dream, his passion, and hard work that he was able to unlock the pathway to a special journey for his family. 

In 1992, his son Herve Mammoliti opened MAMO Le Michelangelo in the small city of French Riviera, Antibes. Through acts of pure, selfless generosity and demonstration of love and affection he created a restaurant that served authentic italian cuisine with a strong and fresh flavorsome provencal influence.

Twenty three years since it’s inception, and after continuous success in South of France, this upcoming May 2015, MAMO restaurant is expanding to New York City.  

This time it’s Herve’s son, Mike Mamo, who will lead the way in bringing the same love and affection to the greatest city in the world and strive to provide an elegant, cozy, comfortable, and unpretentious atmosphere. 

The affectionate Italian & French Provençal dining experience is guaranteed. 

This photograph is taken in the late 50's, and it's one of the few memories that marks the beginning of a dream. Mamo is the youngest of men sitting on the floor.
