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

Going to Mama Alfa's for a meal is like going home to my own Italian Mother's home for dinner. I say home rather than house because you are welcomed with open arms, The aromatic smells of pizza, garlic and tomato sauce immediately transport you to the Tuscan countryside .You MUST try the Caesar Salad. Home made dressing over fresh lettuce.... More

After reading the trip advisor reviews, we were looking forward to eating here, but when we arrived we were told it would be about a 45 minute wait!!! WHY???? There were only two tables with people? Handed the menu to find that most of the pasta dishes had to ordered ahead & when you ordered you had to order 2... More

We have just moved to Thunder Bay and check tripadvisor every time we want to eat out. We decided to have pizza tonight and just loved our pizza at Mama Alfa's! It was just as wonderful as the reviews promised. We asked if they would make a half meat lover's, half veggie pizza since my husband and I can't agree... More

I love Mama Alfa's! Atmosphere: The resturant is nice and quiet, and she plays calming jazz music. She treats her customers like family, and never forgets anyone. She always comes out and checks on everyone and makes sure their food is perfect. Food: The food here is great, even when I order for home delivery it is still great. I... More
