“A trip to Milwaukee is not complete without a visit here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We have been eating at Mama Mia's since about 1966 when they were located at 49th & North Ave in Milwaukee. I don't know then they moved to West Allis on Greenfield but this is the original restaurant that was in Milwaukee. Their garlic bread is dripping in butter, a treat that we have not found in any other restaurant any where--even the other restaurants with the same name. The pizza is thin crust with lots of cheese and whatever else you order put on it. Again, a taste treat we have not experienced at other pizza restaurants. We had a tight schedule in Milwaukee this trip but we still managed to eat here twice.

“Favorite Pizza in Milwaukee for decades!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

I have been eating here for over many decades, and their pizza remains Number One in my vast book of pizza places. Never had a bad experience here. Lasagna is also cheesy heaven. And the garlic bread.......mmmmmm......buttery loaves that compare to NO ONE else's. This restaurant holds many special family memories for me, and is a must go when we host out of town visitors. Cream of mushroom soup is worth a special stop, but call ahead to see if they have it that day. Sometimes on Thursdays, but it's up to the cooks. Don't miss this Milwaukee landmark.

“Garlic bread is a separate food group!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

Wonderful food, the traditional pasta dishes are large portions and have a nicely seasoned sauce. But the bread is outstanding if you like a bitterly treat. Not a place to go if not eating carbs.

“Inferior pizza compared to their Brookfield location”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

No consistency at this location. Just moved to West Allis from New Berlin so ordered pick-up from here instead of Brookfield. BIG Mistake!! Definitely inferior. Called and spoke to manager who stated that while they have a common owner, "they don't make everything the same way"??? Why have the same name, then? Will never order from this location again!!

“Small dining room, large pizza, large portions.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

A group of us got together early on a Saturday evening, 5 pm! and the place began to fill up the moment they unlocked the doors. I was surprised by that for the early hour. Eight of us had different items, and every item was really truly good. The portions were hefty, the quality was right on, and the service was friendly and attentive. The pizza, well, it was just delicious. We even all bought Garlic Bread to go, it was so good.
