I've been there several times and enjoyed their pizza, which was fresh and had a crispy crust. Their chicken marsala was excellent and their pasta penne vodka was made very well but could have used a tad more flavor. I recommend this place to anyone who enjoys a great old fashioned Italian meal. They even have a showcase of their... More

After a long day of betting and making the happy hour tour, our group of four went to Mama Mia's for something to eat. We had never been. What looked like your typical pizza parlor was one of the best Italian restaurants we had ever eaten in. The Manicotti was the best I have had anywhere. Others had spaghetti and... More

We went with friends on a Sunday night. We had a reservation which is a good idea. Jess the waitress was very friendly and really knew the menu, answered all our questions. The hostess Cindy was also very friendly and professional. We tried the lasagna, veal Parmesan, clams in red sauce and one of the specials - all excellent. We... More

Looking for a casual restaurant for good Italian food without a huge price? This local restaurant in a strip shopping center is a great find. All four of us enjoyed our entrees and said we will return again. The service was prompt and efficient. For a quieter and cooler experience, ask for a table in the bar.

Had a nice August in Saratoga dinner with family tonight. Large menu, good quality, and large portions. Great service at a decent price. Will go again.

We joined 2 other couples for dinner on a Monday evening prior to attending the Josh Groban concert at SPAC. This was my first time at Mama Mia's, but my wife had been here before and highly recommended it. It was extremely busy, but fortunately we had reservations. Mama Mia's has a nicely diverse wine list, but the entree choices... More

If you drive by this establishment because it doesn't look like the flashy--and often overpriced--restaurants in downtown you will regret it. Maybe I shouldn't contribute to its well earned busy clientele. But, if you are serious about Italian food created and overseen by a fine Italian chef, a pleasing and casual atmosphere, and the best value for your money, this... More

I'm generally suspicious of restaurants situated in strip malls, but having been told last year this was the place to go, it's now one of our favourite restaurants in Saratoga Springs. The food across the board is excellent, service impeccable, staff friendly. We kept returning and will do so again and again when we are next upstate.

Don't be fooled by the location in a strip mall near Price Chopper - this place is a gem and a Saratoga favorite for italian food. Their pizza was also recently rated the best in Saratoga. You will not be disappointed!
