The food here is good but nothing special. Restaurant could do with some updating in decor and lighting.

My husband and I just moved to Marshalltown and what a wonderful find! The employees were so friendly, had smiles and went out of their way for you. We were missing our Kansas City Italian so decided to try Mama DiGrado's. My husband got the baked pasta where you pick your pasta and ingredients and he absolutely loved it. He... More

Just down the road from Walmart with parking for our truck. We were greeted promptly and seated. The lighting is a little bright, but the food was great and the salad dressing was fabulous. Pretty sad wine list, but then that wouldn't be why you came here. They offer homemade pasta dishes that sound wonderful and considering how great the... More

Great baked pasta, baked to order. Pizza has ample toppings and a great Mama's sauce and spice. They also have baked sub sandwiches and dinner salads. We eat here often

We ordered the breadsticks for an appetizer. They came out quickly and were delicious. I ordered the chef salad. It was a good sized salad and had all the bells and... More

We go to Mama's fairly often because of the great pasta, pizza and sandwiches. The taco pizza is wonderful and they have make your own pasta so you can have whatever veggies and meat you want. The garlic cheese bread is great. We always have a great meal.

Delicious! There is a staff member that seems to have an attitude problem and really shouldn't be working with customers, but other than that....the food is great.

DiGrado, Owner at Mama DiGrado's Pasta & Pizza, responded to this review

As a business that is always trying to provide good service. We're very sorry to hear this. If we would have had this brought to our attention it would have been taken care of. We'll be watching, unfortunately it was brought up one of these sites that can DESTROY a SMALL MOM AND POP BUSINESS. More

A local eatery with wonderful homemade style lasagna and you pick your own ingredients. We've never been disappointed.
