Pizza was a Flop – I went to M's for the first time last weekend and was expecting it to be wonderful. All of my college friends go on a regular basis and rave about it (but then they mostly go for the beer).
When we got there on a Saturday night at 8ish the wait was 45 min. Not bad. When we finally sat down, we had fried ravioli stick (which were delicious) and all ordered pizza.
This was the WORST pizza I have ever had in my entire life. The crust was thin and limp, because I had ordered a slice all the toppings were in the very middle. The broccoli was raw and there was a very small handful of cheese sprinkled over the top of the toppings pile.
this pizza travels well! – I lived in Nashville for a short time for work and ate at this fine place many nights a week. A week ago, my girlfriend was back in Nashville (we live in LA) and the good folks were kind enough to pack up a couple of pizzas into a hot bag that she could bring back to me in LA. The pizza was just as good after traveling as it was in the shop... the only thing missing were the good people and atmosphere that Mafiaoza's has to offer! Keep on rockin' out the good eats!
great so far! – i suggest you go on any other night than tuesday......
it has wonderful pizza (i'm a thin crust lover my self)
but by far the alfredo pasta was to die for,and it only cost 8.50 + tax and they give you a huge plate
+ sundays are 2 for 1 beer night which is cool
HORRIBLE – Waited 2 hours to be seated, no one came around for 45 minutes after we were seated. I decided to talk to someone and they were very rude and informed me I could leave if I wasn't happy. I decided to wait it out even though I was angry. the food came finally and it was utterly disgusting, Not to mention they got the order wrong and refused to take it back, the waitress said "it is what it is you can leave if you don't like it". Well I did leave and I did not pay. There were also people seated near us who also left without even eating. We all talked in the parking lot about how horrible the food was and we also told a bunch of people going in and they turned around and left.
Fun place to go with friends – I had a great time at Mafiaoza's. The wine selection was great, and our server was very knowledgeable. The bbq pizza was good as was the appetizer selection. The patio was very nice and I'd recommend sitting out there when possible. Tuesday is a great time to check it out (2-for-1 pizza and drinks), but if you prefer a calmer crowd, go another night. It stays open late (3am), so go early if you aren't into the younger drinking scene--if you are, then it's definitely for you.
I love this place – I love going to Mafiaoza's. It is always busy and the food is great! Cheese ravioli sticks are huge and addicting, Pastas are large portions 12" pizzas end up being16" s and are always hot and tasty! I don't suggest slices they are pre cooked and it ends up being the same price or cheaper to split a small pizza. Sunday is 2-4-1 all beers!
Bonus:There is always a tall hot server in bar area on Thursdays. She is always friendly and gives great service & she is on Tv. I became a regular because she made me feel so welcome. My 5 year old loves going too because the kids can get pizza dough to play with!
Terrible Bar Service – Twice in two weeks friends and I decided to head to Mafi's for drinks. Both times the blonde woman bartending the back (outside) bar could not have been any worse. Both times it took over 10 minutes to get her to pay attention to us and offer to get us something. (There were only about 10 other people at the bar and surrounding tables all of whom had already been served.) Not once did I see her smile to a single customer or fellow employee. She never even really spoke to us or showed any emotion-- except for the look of disdain she wore so well. She treated us with absolutely NO courtesy and as though we were putting her out by making her do her job. I work in the industry and I gotta tell you, I would NEVER think of treating my customers the way this mean, cranky, unwelcoming bartender treated me and my friends. She should be fired and replaced by someone who would enjoy working and having fun with their customers. Unfortunately, I hear she dates the boss man. I love hanging at Mafi's but I will NEVER sit at her bar again.
Don't Plan to Return – last night we came to celebrate my oldest daughters birthday. Her inlaws planned this and drove from Columbia to be there. It was horrible. We expected a long wait time, but the service was awful. Most everyones food was fine (once we got it) but mine wasn't (I decided to order something different), but it was not at all the same thing the menu described. One of the other guest order spaghetti and it wasnt
throughly cooked, tough. She told the waiter, then he forgot and by the time he finally came around again, everyone was finished eating! She asked for it to go. She really should have told him to forget it. She wasn't going to eat it anyway. Then mine and 2 other tickets were wrong (overcharges) and we had to wait. Was 10:30pm before the inlaws left and later for us. We have been to your restaurant several times, but this was really bad.
Meh – We went on Tuesday for the special. It was packed which excited me because I knew noone would be waiting and cramped into this place for no reason.
I dont know if it was an off night or if it was me. I wasnt impressed at all. For as long as this pizza took (server said the kitchen got backed up) I thought my tastebuds would feast on a piece of heaven. They were disappointed yet again.
Crust as thin as a piece of paper. Literally. Barely any sauce. It was ok and waiting for a long time for ok pizza diminished the taste even more.
I will not return. My husband said that Sam's Club is better and I agree.
Huge Disappointment – I've never eaten in a restaurant where I couldn't even hear the people sitting next to me. Do not go on a Sat. night (or any other crowded time) if you like conversation. Noisy doesn't begin to describe this place. The pizza was pathetic on both trips (I won't make another) due to the terrible crust. The only redeeming factors are the hot waitresses and cool location. Neither of these factors warrant a trip.
