Several of us went to Mama Mia last night and the first turn off was a $5.00 valet charge and $2.00 more when we left. Food is average but prices are not average as I found prices to be out of line with the quality of food served. Most Italian restaurants give you a choice of soup or salad with... More

I came with my family last weekend for dinner and the food was SO GOOD. I love how they give you a lot of food, but its quantity AND quality. We had a fun time, and the service was pretty great as well.

We have been eating here for almost two decades. Whenever we travel to Florida we make sure we eat here at least twice. The new lunch buffet is unbelievable. $8.95! There were three types of salad, several pasta dishes, fish, two types of shrimp tacos, hummus, olives and their unbelievable garlic parmesan rolls. Many others items and all in small... More

Mama Mia's has been in the same location on Young Circle for years. They serve excellent southern Italian food at very reasonable prices. Tables are nicely spaced, service is good and friendly and you can actually hear a conversation due to decent acoustics (as opposed to most chain restaurants.) Mama Mia's food and the way it's served reminds me very... More

The food was edible to say the most. The proportions were out of this world : you don't need a doggy bag, you need a pack-sac to bring it back home (but don't bother). Coffees were good.

What a disappointing experience at Mama Mia's. We've been having family celebrations there for years and always loved it. Last night we were a party of seven. First the valet sent one of our cars away - saying that the parking was full. We asked the hostess if that ever happened. She checked with the manager who gave some bland... More

Located in Hollywood you find kind of modern Italian foods. Pasta was perfect cooked and the appetizers very special.
