My family has been going to this restaurant for years. Recently...The staff was great but the food was not. I have no idea what has happened to the quality of their food and more specifically, the sauces. We tried three sauces of the different meals in our group and all were terrible. I give them 2 stars because the side... More

Mama Cozza's has become part of our trip tradition when we visit Disneyland. It's a short drive down Ball Rd. to get there. The menu is extensive, the food is plentiful, the prices are extremely reasonable and the staff is very friendly. You'll feel like you've walked into your favorite family-owned neighborhood restaurant - because that's what it is. The... More

I didn't view it as the best Italian I have ever had. the pizza is good, the portions are awesome the food is ok. the service is outstanding. I would go again and try other stuff... More

Mama Cozza's has been a mainstay of the restaurant scene in Orange County for decades. A stone's throw from "The Happiest Place on Earth," Disneyland, many celebrities and non-celebrities alike have graced its environs for an authentic Italian meal and atmosphere. Comfortable surroundings, however, are not what patrons go there for--they go for a well prepared meal, served by skilled... More

We love DDD but I really don't understand why this restaurant was featured in the first place. The food is very average. We ordered the two main dishes that were prepared on the show. It makes me a bit suspicious of the whole thing because they just weren't good at all. There is a lot of food for your money... More

While staying in the area and looking for some Italian food my friend and I ended up having dinner at Mama Cozza's. The restaurant look is cool, just how I want an Italian restaurant to look. It shows it age but I mean that in a good way. The service was pretty average, as was the entire overall experience. I... More

My husband and I ate dinner here while visiting Anaheim. We love visiting places featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and this was one of those restaurants. For our appetizer, we ordered the fried mozzarella. It was different than other fried mozzarella I've had, but it was very tasty. It wasn't breaded in a crumb mixture, but rather in a... More

While traveling, my wife wanted to check this place out because of Triple D. Let me first say the portions are very large, and we both found the food tasty. I totally agree with previous reviews that suggest that the atmosphere is dim and very dated. The staff was appropriate for this kind of place. I'd like to give this... More

Longtime resident of Anaheim….been going to Mama Cozza's for decades. This is an ideal restaurant for visitors to Anaheim area (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, etc.); food excellent yet gives a good home-style Italian environment; and, the restaurant is very casual and can seat family-type groups. Within a 5-10 min drive from the Magic Kingdom. Affordable…...
