We had a terrific meal at Mamma Mia's. The food was fresh, hot and delicious. It was a delicious break from 'Corporate Restaurant' food. Eat local!
HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE! – My wife and I went to Mama Mia's for the first time this evening and were extremely disgusted with the food. I had the seafood medley which was low grade frozen seafood thrown into pasta with some oil and little if any seasoning. It was disgusting, and I love seafood! My wife had the special which was a 10 oz New York with pasta and marinara. The steak (which was not a New York cut) was served in an oil that engulfed not just the meat but the entire plate! This was the worst Italian food that I have ever seen come out of any kitchen. Although they claim their food to be homemade on their menu, I highly doubt it, and would not want to visit the homes of these cooks for dinner if that's the case! We will never go back and suggest to others that it's not even worth trying this over priced vile food.
WORST FOOD I"VE EVER EATEN – This was probably the worst dining experience my family and I have ever had. It took so long to even get drinks. When we finally got drinks 20 minutes later, they brought rolls that were stale and rock hard! My husband ordered the lasagna and it was horrible. It looked like slop and the patsa was horrible. I had the chicken marsala and the chicken tasted weeks old. It made me literally gag! We never got drink refills the whole time we were there! Horrible customer service and food! I advise all not to ever watse their money!
So So delicious! – Jerry makes the best pizza in town! best sauce! best crust! The Tia's Special is fantastic! Thick homemade noodles with lots of garlic, butter, spinach and myzithra cheese, served with your choice of shrimp or sausage! Definitely not the healthiest but so fantastic! Calzones are fantastic as well! Baked Ravs to die for. :) For a starter gotta get the sausage with spicy mustard! Yum! Great staff Great food! love love love Mamma Mia's!
Not at all what we expected – We wanted to try something new and local, so we stopped in on a Sunday night. The place was empty so we got right in. After we ordered we were welcomed to have all you can eat soup and salad bar. But by salad bar they mean a bowl of shredded lettuce, a bowl of pasta salad, a chick pea salad and a bowl of pudding. Not really what comes to mind when someone says salad bar. Out order came out fast, and I mean FAST!!! I ordered Chicken Marsala, which for a Italian fan, you know isn't a quick meal. This plate took like 4-5 minutes total... The edges of the chicken were dry and rubbery and the congealed substance in the center was cold and tasted like creamy white gravy. My daughter was so happy to order real homemade mac and cheese... no such luck, it was Kraft Easy Mac all the way and not even creamy... Overall the four of us left greatly dissapointed and although not completely lost on me that the staff was very polite... not worth the $$$. However, since then I have been told by several others who had similar experiences, that thier pizza is indeed fantastic. So there you go, get the pizza to go and skip the salad bar!
mediocre italian – I ordered the sicilian lasagna. I'd bet money the sauce was not homemade. Anytime I eat at a restaurant and walk out thinking "I could have done better at home just with what I have in my pantry," there's a problem. The portion was small, and yet the guy at the table next to me ordered the same thing and his was twice the size. seriously, spokane restaurants, salting the heck out of the food isn't necessary IF you know what you are doing. Anyway, once was enough for me. Spokane is a cultural dead zone. My quest for a "favorite" restaurant is ongoing
Mamma Mia is right! – I ordered the Tia's special and Tia should be ashamed! The dish was drowned in olive oil and the shrimp were raw inside! Meh! If those rolls are homemade, I don't want to see the home they're made in. Awful. Even though they comped my dinner, I will not go back. As a side note, their staff needs to be aware that they do have a website, for what it's worth. I actually gave this place no stars, but I had to fill in a star to publish.
Our family always has a great time with great food! – Every time we eat at Mama Mias, which is not enough, we always laugh, have fun, experience wonderful service and some of the best homemade Italian food ever. Even my picky eater (8 yrs old) loves it and begs to eat here often. The prices are reasonable, and meals big enough to split, or have the balance for lunch the next day.
Best pizza and calzoni. Best original homemade recipe Italian around. – Waiter was on the ball! Homemade Gilato is awesome and the service was there! The best dish is with Jerry's meatsauce with any unspecialized pasta dish; it is mildly spicy and something to write home about!
