The patio was nice and well kept, and the food was great. My partner and myself ordered calzones and they were terrific. But the service was less than great. Not what I expected from a "Mom & Pop's" type establishment. The server who intially sat us and took our drink orders seemed very disinterested and the server who took our order was nice enough, but nothing I will remember. The only person who seemed genuine and welcoming was the blonde gentleman who delivered our food. Our server upon her last arrival, never asked if our food was great, horrible, anything. Just asked if we wanted dessert, after we said no, she walked away and brought the check. Nothing about the dining experience was bad, but i don't believe I wil return or recommend. It definitely wasn't a "gay-friendly" establishment.

Used to be better on the pizza front. Packs them in for it is the only choice for 'Italian' in the immediate Clayton area. Try Louie's on the Lake or drive to Highlands. You may pay more but you'll probably get what you pay for. Cheap does not translate to good but just 'good enough' for Clayton to be busy.

Mama G's is what you hope you find when you go out kinda late on a holiday weekend--busy but not packed, good for both the adults and the kids, and reasonably priced. Frankly, the place smelled so good when we walked in, I would've stayed for that alone.

We ordered several pizzas, and they were great. The crust is thin, the toppings generous, and you get plenty. We were there on a busy weekend, the service was good, and the food arrived quickly. We enjoyed it, and will go back the next time we are in the area.

By the way, one curious detail about Mama G's is that the parking and the main entrance are in the back. We almost didn't stop, because we didn't see any cars (empty restaurants on weekend nights aren't usually good news) but they are just hidden around the back.

This is the best Italian food I have ever eaten. The staff was very friendly and the prices were okay.
