Been visiting this restaurant since the late '60s and early '70's on dates! Now bringing children and grandchildren to enjoy the garlic bread which we just simply can't find anywhere else - even in Italy. It's crispy on the outside yet soft and almost...chewy on...the inside. Dripping in butter - that you can still see puddles in the bottom of the basket - great for dipping! We usually order the large pizza with everything on it - but I prefer the cheese/sausage/mushroom - it just isn't so overwhelming with vegetables and strong green peppers. It's an old fashioned pizza joint with great service and best food. We do not patronize the newer ones - only this one so can't speak to those.More

I haven’t been back to Milwaukee in 20 years. Where’s the first place I went to when I got back, where else but this fine establishment. It’s just as I remember, the lasagna is covered with mounds of cheese and with more than enough meat...sauce, which Virgil would approve of. Grilled cheese is a great items also. But let’s not forget the garlic bread. Just as I remembered itMore

We ordered using the curbside pickup, was told our order would be ready within 25 minutes. I arrived around 25 minutes later, there was only one car there when I pulled in, within a minute the server came out and brought them their order and...a few more cars pulled in after me. However, they brought them out their food before me. I just waited, but than more cars pulled in and they bought them out order, it had been almost an hour since I placed the order and I had been there for close to a half hour and no one had said a word to. I finally asked a server that was bring food out to a car that pulled in a long time after me and 10 minutes later I finally got my order. The pizza was now dry and overcooked and cold to the touch. I will not order from there again.More

I’ve been going there sense I was a kid. I know what crust tastes like. And the pizza I got was NOT THE TRADITIONAL PIZZA I was VERY DISAPPOINTED. Also they got our 2 pizzas we ordered mixed up. My friend got some of my...toppings and I didn’t get what I ordered. Also found out there were many friends that said the same thing-NOT TRADITIONAL PIZZA. You need to go back to the old days of making it-get a difference cook or retrain. It’s sad it’s not like it was.More

For years, whenever we get together and don’t feel like cooking so we can spend more time visiting, Mama Mia’s is our go-to for to-go! The Spaghetti with meat sauce and side of meatballs is more than ample to feed everyone! Not to be forgotten,the...to-die for garlic bread- it’s my absolute favorite and has been what I have compared all other restaurants to over the decades. No- I haven’t found anyone whose bread is anywhere near as flavorful! I can’t wait to visit again and try another of my favorites!More

Went with a small group of family ((6). Excelent garlic bread, great table salad, and tasty pizza. All for about $10.00 a piece.

We ordered the appetizer platter with mozzarella sticks cauliflower and mushrooms. They were out of mushrooms so we substituted zucchini. They were out of zucchini so we substituted eggplant. They were out of eggplant so we ended up with mozzarella sticks and cauliflower. The mozzarella...sticks were huge and both items were heavily coated with a bread and batter. We also ordered a meatball sandwich. The bread for the meatball sandwich was huge. Even the garlic bread was just a huge slab of bread. We wouldn't recommend this particular restaurant unless you are a bread fanatic and love to eat tons of bread.More

They have the most amazing garlic bread but I think the secret is in the buttery garlic they put on. But I do like the way the bread is soft in the middle and crisp on the outside. Well prepared.
