My husband and I have eaten regularly at Mama Mia's for many years. But after last night, we will not go back. We were sat near 2 large, very loud, parties with screaming children. The rolls - usually so warm and fragrant, were cold and overwhelming with parmesan cheese. After we placed our order, we waited, and waited, and waited... More

We had a delicious meat at Mama Mia's for our friday night date night. The Italian bread rolls were warm and melt in your mouth. We had the lobster bisque and giant meatball for appetizers and the portions were so generous they could have been a mean in themselves. For the entrees we had the chicken marsala, and talapia with... More

I had heard this was the best Italian in Hollywood. Unfortunately they have seen better days. The food and service were above average but short of very good. Lack of a crowd should have been a sign.

Great food, very agreeable prices for flavorful and seemingly high quality and fresh food. Thursday nights are fun for happy hour.

I love Mama Mia because its a local restaurant with good service and great Eggplant Rollatini. I sometimes order an extra plate to go or have it as dessert while I'm there. Prices are reasonable and quality is consistent.

Top shelf drinks were substituted with inferior alcohol. When brought to the attention of waiter a slightly upgrade still inferior to what was ordered and charged. The manager apologized but fell short of addressing the terrible meal. Pasta was way overlooked. Mussels were of poor quality and not fresh. Service was poor.

We have visited this restaurant quite a few times in the last 8 years and always had a most enjoyable meal. Unfortunately this visit was a total disaster. We ordered pastas for 4 adults and 4 hungry kids. In a busy restaurant should take no more than 20 minutes. It wasn't that busy. After 25 minutes we were told it... More
