Mama’s Trattoria gone?!!

By miss molly 28 March 2011 22

I was walking through Garema Place yesterday and was SHOCKED to find Mama’s Trattoria is closed!

The sign on the window said that it was due to the lease ending, and that they ‘hope to see us in a new venue soon’

That doesn’t sound like much of a relocation plan to me.

Mama’s Trattoria is one of my favourite restaurants, and I have been going for 10 years.  I have never been so sad to hear of a business closing.  Does anyone have any more information about why they closed and if there is any hope they’ll re-open?

What concerns me more is how depressed that area of Civic is looking now.

It’s awful. Old Civic, run down and depressing, surrounded by various versions of new Civic, parts of which are quite nice but mostly in a bland could-be-anywhere way. Civic could be so much better.

Hardly surprising when Canberra Center developers have successfully managed to close off shoppers to the outside world. They don’t even have to leave the Center to cross a road now. Couldn’t think of a better way to kill off outside trade and ‘boulevards’.

You mean there is actually something else in Civic apart from the Canberra Centre? On the rare occasion I visit Civic I park in the Canberra Centre, shop in the Canberra Centre, pay for my parking then leave.

I sometimes go for a walk around, and then hurry back to the Centre.

Garema Place could have the sort of attractions that the Centre could never offer. Seems to me there’s opportunity for both to provide something for visitors to Civic. Garema Place could have outdoor dining, live entertainment (regularly, not just in association with some festival), art exhibitions, chess (hmm, that rings a bell). But it took on an aura of being the domain of inconsiderate skateboarders and pushy beggars long ago, which IMO was more damaging to its viability than the construction of the mall extensions. I’m coming to the conclusion that some aspects of Canberra could be so much better . . . if it wasn’t for the fact that they couldn’t be. If that area hasn’t managed to develop into a vibrant attractive area by now, with the population growth of the city as a whole and the inner city in particular, when will it?

Nice that the ice cream scoop has gone to a good home. 🙂
