I gave Mama Mia’s a rave review a year ago and on a recent trip to Saratoga was very much looking forward to enjoying it again. Unfortunately, we (a party of four) were very disappointed. The marinara served with my arancini app was cold to the touch. The chicken on a chicken Caesar salad was reported to be “dry –... More

This place has a very broad and delicious menu! And, it has a wonderful cake/pastry bakery! BUT what we consistently go for are the wood fired pizzas! Its busy, but they seat people pretty quickly--I think that they take reservations! Great for family or large groups as they have a special room to accommodate that!

Went to dinner with friends and we have eaten here before. Food is always good. Clams oreganato for appetizer is very tasty. I had the veal chop special and it was very good - a little fatty but delicious. Veal Parmesan also very good. Bracciole was not as good as last visit - it needed to be braised longer and... More

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.

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
