If you want Pasta, you have to order two days ahead

I have been to Mama Alfas several times to have dinner with friends and I had a family dinner for my husband's 65 birthday. The food is always good and the menu for the birthday dinner was plentiful and yummy. The Caesar salad is the best in town. Since it is a small restaurant with home made... read more

Made from imported ingredients and everything is made from scratch. The sauce is like sweet and savory with some spice to kick it up. 3 cheese blend and fresh ingredients. That's just the pizza. Panzorotti are yummo and baked not fried. Pasta is to die for. A must see restaurant. Muma Alfa herself gives excellent service

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and was hoping for a stunning meal. It took awhile to find the place, because it is at the end of a small strip mall. It was a quiet Tuesday night - only two other tables, though several take away orders were picked up. We were in Italy this summer and was hoping for... More

Mama Alfa's is a small establishment where the husband and wife run the show. The pizzas are made from scratch by Mama herself. Don't expect to be in and out. It takes a bit to get your food as Mama makes everything. The pizza was fantastic. If you want freshly made pasta you need to order it the day before... More

After reading all the reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to try Mama Alfa's. We ordered a large pizza & a salad for pickup. The restaurant itself is small, clean, & clearly family run (which is always nice to see). The food was very good. Everything was homemade with love. However I took a bite of a slice of pizza and...

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
