“Always a great time and great food”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

My family and I have been there twice in the last month and we love this place. Besides the pizza we have had the Gyro sandwich, Chicken Pesto, Bacon Cheeseburger and all of them rocked. They have a sinful Banana, Caramel pie that will change your life. The staff goes waaay above and beyond for the guest and are always in super spirits. Just an amazing overall experience.

“Good food”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

I had the portabella salad and bruchetta, all was great. Atmosphere was good. It is at a good location too on 10th just north of the expressway (83).

“Great pizza”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

As a result of an unfortunate family split, Mama's Pizzeria was born as a offspring of Mama Mía Pizzeria. Mama's features typical Italian fare: pizzas, calzones, and pasta. The current location is in the former Tom & Jerry's hamburger joint, an old home converted into a restaurant years ago, so there's not much to say about ambience. But the food is delicious. And not expensive. If the weather is conducive, ask for a table on the outdoor deck. The space is covered and shaded, the breeze blows nearly continuously, and you can watch the traffic go by.

“Some of the best tasting pizzas around!!”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

I consider myself a pizza aficionado having eaten pizza all over the US. This restaurant does a good job of bringing some the big city type pizzas down South. I really enjoy that you can truly customize your pizza pie. Our family's favorite is the chicken, spinach, and wheat crust pizza. This is our attempt to keep eating here "healthy." They have the standard fare pizzas and offer hot dogs (with Vienna beef franks a big deal when it comes to taste), calzones, and stromboli's. I have never had a bad meal here, and I don't expect to have one anytime soon. Greatly little place with a throwback style atmosphere. Perfect for family dining. I would highly recommend this place when you want pizza, but not the standard conglomerate type that is most often delivered to your home.
