We ate lunch here on our day at Hollywood Studios and all of us enjoyed our meals. The service was excellent and it was nice to get out of the heat and sit down and enjoy some good food.

This is always one of the busiest restaurants in Hollywood Studios so you should try and book. There isn't a bar if you are waiting for a table but the front of house guy directed us to Pizza Planet across the way which serves beer and sangria and the alert box still works across there. We had fantastic service from... More

Every trip to Hollywood Studios requires a stop at Mama Melrose's for a delicious Italian dinner. I always get the same thing... Penne Alla Vodka with shrimp! I liked it so much the first time we dined at Mama Melrose's that I haven't tried anything else. We've always had a reservation and we've never waited more than 5 mins. Service... More

We made a reservation in advance and were seated quickly. The dining area is cosy with a nice feel. The menu consists of your traditional Italian fayre with a good choice - we opted for a pasta dish and two flat breads. Our meal was served relatively quickly and we all enjoyed the food. One slight concern - i ordered... More

We ate at this restaurant as part of our Disney Dining Plan and Fantasmic Dinner package. The service was great, but the foods are not so kid-friendly. It's menu is geared more for upper scale adults. My children ages 10 & 12 and under the Disney Dining Plan they are given adult size meals. We all thought the portions were... More

We (4 adults and 2 kids) ate here as part of the Fantasmic Package so we'd get priority seating for the evening show of Fantasmic. Set price meal - 3 courses and soft drinks. Great menu options, food was good and service friendly and helpful. The only thing is that the layout lends itself to the noice level being quite... More

We walked right into Mama Melrose's without a dinner reservation! Probably because we opted to miss the fireworks. This is a nice place. Kind of hidden behind the Muppets 3-D ride. The kids pizza was a good size and my nephew remarked, "It's not even too hot!" I had the salad with artichoke hearts and was a little disappointed by... More

If you go to Hollywood Studios you must go here. The Calamari is out of this world that my whole family loves. The Chicken Parm is the best I have had from any place outside of New York. The food is great and the portions are big. Anytime we go to Hollywood Studios we go here.

My Family and I went to Mama Melrose's on July 3rd for the Fantasmic Dinner Package. It was a great meal. Since we had the package we had three courses of food. I however had about 5 courses between finishing my own food and sharing with my Wife and Daughter. We started off with the Crispy Calamari for me and... More

We selected the lunch option at Mama Melrose's for our Fantasmic! dining package. Our server was the highlight of the meal! Don't get me wrong, the food was good but our server was charming and funny. He was also very knowledgeable about the park and gave us several pointers on things to do/see. I ordered the most expensive entree -... More
