Where authentic Italian food meets a modern Australian setting, supported by Abacus.
Ciao Mamma! brings together owners Nic and Tina’s two passions: authentic Italian cuisine and modern Australian culture. A favourite amongst Brunswick locals, Ciao Mamma! is now one of Melbourne’s go-to restaurants for fresh pasta, made daily from scratch – and we’ve been with them since the beginning.
Initially impressed by Abacus’ extensive features at a trade fair in 2017, what Nic, Tina and their team love the most about their Abacus POS today is how effortless it is to use. “The staff love it. It has a very modern feel, unlike other brands that are clunky. It has the flexibility to adapt to things on the go – it’s very responsive, very user-friendly.”
“Using the restaurant Online Ordering system enabled us to pivot towards takeaway very quickly. It integrates with our POS so we receive the order straight away.”
Since partnering with us, Nic & Tina have expanded their Abacus POS system to include Online Ordering. Activation was instant and easy: the platform embedded seamlessly into their existing website, opening an entirely new revenue stream for Ciao Mamma! in minutes. Synced directly with Abacus POS, hungry locals can now browse the menu, order and pay from their own devices, leaving Nic and Tina to get back to doing what they do best: crafting artisan pasta.
The online ordering system has helped us pivot the COVID-19 pandemic.
