I was very disappointed when I invited my in-laws for lunch at Mama Mia's last year. They had come specially from Switzerland to celebrate Christmas with us in Hollywood, FL. Having had excellent experiences at Mama Mia's prior to this visit, I was very offended and disappointed when I was a given a so-called "fish of the day" that was... More

I've eaten at Mama Mias Italian Ristorante twice now. The food is phenomenal and our service was impeccable on both occasions. I recently moved to the Downtown Hollywod area from Chicago, and am thrilled to have found such a high caliber restaurant in South Florida that I rank up there with any Italian restaurant in Chicago. They also have the... More

Wow has this gone downhill! Always one of my favorites, I would look forward to their eggplant par, always cooked to perfection. Took my Mom out to dinner over the weekend as she wanted the lobster special. It stared out with a waiter so serious we thought we were at a funeral. My Mom got up to loosen up and... More

This restaurant is in my sister’s address book and now I know why. Honestly, I had the best ever lasagna. First bite, the pasta melted in my mouth. Even though we were in an Italian restaurant, my husband who is allergic to gluten was well taken care of by the waiter and made sure the kitchen prepared his meals as... More

Mama Mia's was an enjoyable experience, we were drawn to them for the porterhouse special they had. But overall the food was great, steak cooked as ordered, reservations are required and easily made but it was also an early sunday evening. We will be back again.

A small group of us had the pleasure of dining at Mama Mia Italian Ristorante while attending a conference in Hollywood, at the Westin Diplomat. I grew up in the Hollywood area and have been gone for 20 years now. It was so nice going back to the old stomping ground, although we had never been to Mama Mia before.... More

Service: Relatively ok, I'm sure they could do better. I walk in by myself and immediately greeted. Bartender was nice and seems experienced, but training the new employee was distracting her. Manager walked by frequently, said hello, but nothing more then that. Food: 2 for 1 appetizer deal. I declined, instead ordered the ribeye, sub fettuccine pasta. I assume the... More

Last visit, and I mean LAST visit, was a disaster from the time we walked in to an empty restaurant with no one meeting us at the door twice told that the waiter will be with you while standing looking at the empty place. Finally we were seated and took another 10 minutes before a waitress approached to take our... More

Three friends and myself just had the MOST INCREDIBLY EXCEPTIONAL Sunday brunch at Mama Mia's, in Hollywood. The cost of this brunch was $19.95 per person. This brunch is available for patrons from 11A.M. to 4P.M. on Sundays. Mama Mia's is housed in a BIG space. And, next to it,--- is the Sushi Room Restaurant--which is their Japanese/Thai restaurant.
