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

We totally enjoyed our meals. We ordered the mushroom and rice, which Chef Horata prepared before us.

We read the reviews and were skeptical, but my GF heard that they had gluten free pasta, so we braved a try. I could go through all the specifics, but in a nutshell....the food was OK, not bad, but not great. And, Italian food at these prices should be great. Another reviewer's "overpriced mediocrity" hit the nail on the head.... More

This place used to be so good...what happened. $26 dollars for 5 shrimp stuffed with tons of soggy bread and a hint of crab - served cold in a restaurant that was almost empty. How could this happen? The prices are ridiculous - which would not be important - if the food was delicious - heck we would gladly play... More

I don't know what Mama Mia some of these other reviews are from but I will tell you mine. I am a chef and come from a family of chefs. Yes, we are picky with food because....we make it from scratch. First, looking at the menu, the prices are very high for the type of restaurant it is. If you... More

The food at Mama Mia's is excellent. The portions are very large and served by professional servers. The prices are high, but the quality of food makes the cost worth it.

From the garlic bread to the eggplant parmesan, everything was absolutely delicious. The sauce is simple, yet delicious.
