Returned this last week after they rebuilt from the fire. It was clean, staff was friendly, service was quick, and the food we ordered was great! Large portions for the money. I returned within a few days for breakfast, and it was really cheap, and tasted great! You can't beat a full breakfast for under three bucks!

The owners should have cashed out after the fire vs. rebuilding. My husband & I recently went back after their reopening to see if they had improved...believe it or not they are actually worse. My 10oz. NY Strip Steak, was more like a flattened, flavorless, subpar piece of "some" cut of meat, which produced 6 oz. of pure fat &... More

Would love to see this restaurant in a different location in a more updated building. The food was EXCELLENT! The service was EXCELLENT! My advice...they need to cut back on their chicken dish portions or raise the price. That is waaayyy too cheap for that much food...I can't imagine they're making any money off those dishes with 4 chix breast.... More

The food is always very good. The servers are always friendly. The interior is a bit dated, but the food is what we come here for. Every dish we have tried has been really good.

Mama Mia's is cramped, small, dirty, and generally filled with the worst of Wood River. The "people of Wal-Mart" have nothing on those spilling out of the booths of Mama Mia's. No one will confuse this with fine dining. The menu is a mile long and filled with everything conceivable. Supposedly this is an Italian restaurant, and there are some... More

A little small, but I have never had a dish there I did not like. Frisco Salad is my favorite for lunch. Just the right crunch for their home made bread crumbs that melt in your mouth. Good price for the amount of food served.

This place is a bit small but is always busy, because the food is awesome at an excellent value. If you like Italian food, give this place a try. There is a large selection and the staff is friendly too. I recommend the lasagna.
