The pizza at Mama Santa's is some of the best I've ever had. However, we ordered mozzarella sticks, and they were not good. They did not taste homemade. But if you want some good pizza, this is an excellent place to go! Friendly servers too!

My daughter and I went to Mama Santa's for lunch and ordered a small pizza and two side salads. The pizza was fine, but when we got the bill, there was an additional fee for cheese on the salads to the tune of $1.50 per salad. When we ordered the salad, our waitress asked us if we wanted cheese, but... More

We went for lunch- specifically for pizza but preferred the cavatelli overall. The pizza was good but certainly not the best I have had. The cavatelli and meatballs were incredibly good and I have to say some of the best I have had. If we ever go again, I would certainly try more of the homemade pastas and maybe get... More

After we were seated it took more then 20 minutes to take our order at 8pm on a Monday. 15 more minutes for water and drinks then 45 minutes total wait... More

We ordered and waited for our pizza and after waiting between 35 - 40 minutes we were told they forgot to put our order in and with having a 3 yr old and a 6 yr old that's not what we wanted to hear. The pizza was very good and the ravioli tasted homemade. Needless to say, our pizza was... More

One extra refill should be at least 2, everytong is pretty much ala cart,prices are good till you add salad and garlic bread. Had spaghetti and meat sauce the sauce is only thing worth eating meatballs no flavor and pasta way too thick with no flavor I thought this was so disappointing, will never go back.

My husband and I stopped here for an early dinner after visiting a friend at the Cleveland Clinic, it was one of the restaurants he recommended. I ordered the homemade manicotti & my husband had the rigatoni & meatballs, we started dinner with a nice antipasto salad, and a glass of Merlot. They were both delicious, the sauce is the... More

We both had great meals, he had spaghetti and meatballs and I had the lasagna. We wine was some of the most reasonably priced I have ever seen in a restaurant though there weren't a ton of... More
