My son recently graduated high school & instead of a party he asked if we could take our family to Mamma Mias instead. We have been to the restaurant many times, and this time did not disappoint. We were a group of 15. Appetizers & desserts were served family style and everyone ordered their own entree. The staff kept the... More

Meal I had was a "special" meat was cold inside guess they didn't microwave it enough. No side salad for free any more ,desert was lousy cheesecake "homemade" ALWAYS ask prices first! It was $10. for a slice!!! Next time its Olive Garden for better quality, quantity and service and half the price.

We used to eat here a lot, but the last two times we ordered takeout for the family, it was disappointing. While the sauce and gnocchi are good, the portion sizes keep getting smaller. Ditto for the salads. The rolls are great, but since they spent a lot of money to renovate, this has gone downhill. Good food, small portions,... More

Tucked away in a strip shopping center this is a little gem of a place. A mom and pop operation, they go above and beyond with the quality of the food. Lots of great choices prepared well -- nice to see a local restaurant offering good Italian that is so much better than the chains around town many will frequent.... More

Mama Mia is a small local restaurant specializing in Italian. We dined there at the recommendation of friends. Our friends shared a medium pizza which was huge, as large as any large I have seen. It didn't look very appetizing, however. There was little tomato sauce and the toppings were few and far between. Our friends said it was good.... More

Everything I've ordered at this restaurant has been very good to excellent. This is a family owned restaurant and not some chain which I personally appreciate. The restaurant has a great menu and plenty of good choices. It has a friendly atmosphere and the service has been great. They also have some wonderful desserts, many home made. I would highly...

There's nothing spectacular about this restaurant. We tried several different plates and all of them had the same tomato sauce. We won't be going back again...too much like any generic italian restaurant.

Great Italian food in a place where you would not expect it. My son loves their pizza but we have had many Italian dinners here. Love the linguine & clam sauce, the carbonara, the gnocchi with pink sauce, the chopped salad and the limoncello cake. The owners are super sweet. Great family place, good for couples, & they will accommodate... More
