Good "hole in the wall"

From the outside this gem can be daily overlooked. It sits in a stop mall next to Food Lion. It is well worth stopping in. Love the chopped salad and the pizza as well as the veal parm. Always enough for leftovers the next day.

Wonderful atmosphere, staff is very accommodating. Food is traditional Italian and absolutely delicious. It's a great time for family & friends. We celebrate all of our special occasions there.

Service was excellent, food was mediocre and price for the special was outrageous! Our parents were in from out of town and wanted to treat us. We were so ashamed when will got the total bill. We later reimbursed our parents.

My family and I love eating here. The atmosphere is great - family dining - nothing fancy, but warm and inviting. Ciro always greets us and makes us feel as if we are part of his family. They have the best pizza in the area. Other great dishes include the lasagna, manicotti and the pasta e fagioli.

My husband and I have only been here for dinner, and the food has always been wonderful. The Margarita pizza is a favorite we get 'to go' all the time. Pastas are full of vegetables and meat and there is a wide variety of all types of Italian food. Another personal favorite are the eggplant and chicken Parmesan. The owner... More

My wife and I went to Mama Mia's for dinner on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was not busy. The atmosphere was pleasant and we were greeted warmly as we walked in by one of the owners. The menu is extensive, with everything from pizza to several pasta and veal dishes. My wife had the linguine in white clam sauce.... More

We went here for our anniversary and the food was great.They made a traditional plate for me that was not on the menu with no problems. They actually insisted when I asked if I had just overlooked it. Our waitress was fabulous! I told her it was our anniversary and she bought us canolis! I do not like canolis at... More

I have been to this restaurant with my family, as well as just my husband and I for a couple's evening out. I haven't been disappointed with the food, service or prices. The dishes that we have ordered have always tasted fresh and delicious. Many times we get the pizza, and we always have to take some home because it... More

Mama Mia is a little above average compared to the rest in the area. The food is OK and the atmosphere is nice. The down side is the owners boyfriend who acts like an idiot when you go there. He acts like a timeshare salesperson.

This is in an out of the way location, but worth the effort to find! FYI, Food Lion strip mall in Apex, NC. I was treated for my BD and what a wonderful experience! The waiter, Tim, was very helpful, attentive (without hovering) and kept us laughing the whole time. He was excellent and knew his stuff - steered us... More
