We live in Seattle and were in the University District area and decided to go to Mamma Melina's for dinner on a Wednesday night. We made last-minute reservations for 5:45pm and the restaurant was pretty empty outside of the bar. The dinning area is a...More

Been here a few times, and it's always impeccable. Plus, they have great Happy Hour specials! Best Restaurant in U-Village!

My husband, 10 year old daughter and I had dinner at Mamma Melina Ristorante while we were on vacation in Seattle. This is a fine-dining experience at a moderate price. My favorite part of the decor are the prints of Italian art (Modigliani.. etc) hanging...More

We came to this restaurant while in Seattle for the Children’s Hospital. The server made sure our meal came out really quickly, so we could get back to our children, but the food was still very tasty! Would definitely return to this restaurant.

Mama Melina's is a nice cozy place that could also be good for a business dinner. The menu is authentic Italian with many dishes I recognized from my travels. Beware the Pasta Fajoli, while great it is a larger portion than I anticipated, I could...More

Mamma Melina is a very nice neighborhood restaurant serving authentic Italian food. I loved the Vitello ai funghi selvatici. The staff is friendly and accommodating, prices are reasonable, and also very important – convenient parking.

You can order spaghetti with any kind of sauce. The meatballs are a little spicey for me.
