“Complimenti!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Arriving at our hotel (Hotel Tria, next door) tired and hungry after our trans-Atlantic flight, the thoughts of a PIZZA sounded perfect. We walked in and found it's mainly for take-out and they have quite a thriving business. There were at least ten people working behind the counter and in the kitchen. Very friendly relaxed service and within 10 minutes our order was ready. Wow! We live in Italy and take-out pizza is rather novel there. Here it's a well-developed process. The pizza was fantastic, not quite like in Italy, but delicious. In Italy the cheese is always "real" mozzarella which bears no resemblance to US mozzarella. But the end product was very good and the crust was a work of art. Complimenti! (our compliments!)

“Great value for money!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I've ordered lunch sandwiches at Mamagoo's many times. The portions are enormous and prices are very reasonable. The take-out is very very good, you can order and come by in about 20 minutes and your sandwich is ready.

I love the buffalo calzone, I've eaten too many of them.

The eggplant parm sub is a great lunch (with enough left around for a late afternoon snack).

The Gyro sub was not as good as I would have liked; it isn't really a gyro just grilled meats.

The veggie burger and the burger wrap are both excellent; ask for tsatziki on the side and it is wonderful.

If you are going to get fries, get the spicy fries. They are yum yum!

I've never (I don't think) ever eaten in the store; only takeout as far as I can remember.

“Great Place for Great Subs, Pizza and More!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Growing up, a friend of mine lived just a few blocks from here, and for some reason, we never went here. Boy what did we ever miss out! I can't remember this place not being around.

The staff are total pros. Kind, friendly with great service. Their food, especially pizza is great (although they don't beat Pizzeria Regina's, but hey who can?). The prices are reasonable, portions decent, and service is almost always fast. Their small parking lot is surprising usually good enough, as turn around is pretty fast. In a crunch you can park over at Fresh Pond Mall and trot over in a couple of minutes.

“Great sub shop and pizza place”
Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Smallish sub and pizza shop with character. A few tables available but this is mostly a take-out place. Food is excellent

Huge portions, reasonable prices, been there for 30 years so worth a visit. The large size is really large!
