Can't believe I waited this long!

The food was absolutely delicious, I live nearby, and I am sad it took me so long to finally go! Be prepared to spend some time, good things come to those who wait.

After inquiring to the existence of an actual "Mama Alfa" the chef herself came out to provide recommendations on the menu, and the insistence that they put a lot of work into their meals. Having insisted that we try the Caesar Salad we indulged and can safely say it was the best ever had in a restaurant (to our experience)... More

Like eating with relatives mama is so REAL and sweet, great food and atmosphere. The brewed sweet tea is so delicious, but mama will not give me her secret recipe!!! The pizzas are sooo delicious and everything is fresh, fresh, fresh. You can not visit Thunder Bay or pass thru and not stop at Mamas:) Prices are very reasonable and... More

Mama was so sweet and gracious, I already miss her! We came in as a photo walk group and ordered pizzas. She made me a special vegetarian version and offered us the most delicious caesar salad I've had for years- homemade, with lots of garlic and Parmesan cheese. The time spent preparing the food indicates the quality and care which... More

My fiancee and I were recently back up in Thunder Bay for a funeral and we and my family visited Mama Alfa's on our last night there. Because my fiancee has certain deadly food allergies, I called ahead to make special arrangements for something she could eat. Ralph was who had accommodated us over the phone, and he happily checked... More

Mama Alfa is the best at what she does. She makes you feel at home and if you go regularly enough she makes you apart of her family. Do not ever be in a rush for your food, but if you can wait its a wonderful, slow Italian meal.

I ordered a pizza for take out it was over priced and told it would be like 45 minutes. Honestly there is much better competition in town and id rather spend my money where they appreciate the business. The woman who served me acted like it was a burden to order..never again will I spend my hard earned money here.

I was recently introduced to Mama Alfa at her restaurant by a friend. She is an amazing,beautiful lady and a fantastic cook. I went to the restaurant with a first time date. We had a quiet romantic booth all to ourselves. We enjoyed the fabulous Caesar salad, home made pasta and a fine bottle of red wine. I had hoped... More

We are from Waterloo and have been to Italy. This was by far my most favourite Italian meal anywhere! Both times we went we ordered the pizzas. I would love to try the pasta dishes but Mama Alfa prepares them a day in advance. I saw her preparing the pizza and she puts so much love into it all! The... More
