Great happy hour selection of tasty, inexpensive food. The lasagna, the meatballs and arugula salad were fantastic. The interior had an old world Italian restaurant feel with lots of red, accented by pink and black wrought iron and shimmering chandeliers.
We found this breakfast gem on our way to the waterfront last weekend. While waiting for our meals they offered us a choice of some very yummy rosemary scones or Danishes, these were on the house no less! I had the Salmon Hash and it was awesome. My friend had the French toast and said it was one of the best she has ever had. I will definitely be back.
Great find for my wife's birthday lunch. Good waiter, helpful and friendly, and decent food. Helped me with bringing out a surprise gift with the complimentary birthday dessert. Life memories!
Scrumptious breakfast! Mama Mia's has always been my favorite Italian restaurant now it's going to be my go to for breakfast. I had a bacon Frittata with ricotta and it was so good. My friend brioche bread stuffed French bread was awesome. You even get a complimentary rosemary scone or Danish; my Danish was so buttery it melted in my mouth.
Amazing restaurant! The staff is great. Always pleasant, helpful and all-around enjoyable. The food is delightful. Very filling and extremely tasty. If you are going for the first time..I recommend trying the Chicken Parm or the NY Steak. Both absolutely phenomenal! Both juicy, tender and cooked to perfection.
I LOVE Mama Mia. I work in the downtown area and I canâ??t find a better place to eat lunch. Their new Arugala salad is the perfect meal to help me finish out the long work day. Also, their garlic bread is some of the best. I love that they started giving it out a lunch without asking.
Love the new lunch menu items. The Penne Lobster and Cheese was perfect in every sense of the word. Thick chunks of lobster meat, a creamy sauce to add rich flavor to the dish, and of course loaded with cheese. I couldn't rave enough about how much I love Mama Mia. If you haven't tried it yet, then you are missing out!!!
Authentic as it gets – Great authentic Italian food. I spent a year abroad in Italy and after coming home, I haven't found anything that compares to the Italian food from Italy, except for Mama Mia. The portions are huge like Italy, and the sauce and pasta, all has an authentic taste to them. Mama Mia does Italian food the way it is supposed to be done.
Excellent Happy Hour – I came in for happy hour because I work down the street and I was pleasantly surprised by their happy hour menu and prices. Everything on the Happy Hour menu was $3 with the purchase of a drink. For under $10 (without tip) I was able to get a beer, calamari, and manicotti. The portion of the calamari and manicotti was not at all what I expected for $3. They were very filling portions and I found myself not eating dater till later that night. The bar is a great place to just sit back and relax after work and catch the days game while traffic dies down. Mama Mia is definitely going to be my happy hour spot after work.
Portland's Best Italian Restaurant – Simply wonderful. I always have a craving for Italian food and I have tried nearly all of them in the Portland area and none are better then Mama Mia. I don't even bother going to other Italian restaurants because Mama Mia is that good.
The food is the most authentic that I have found. Not to mention the staff is AWESOME! They are very friendly and know exactly how to help me decide on what to eat. The prices are very fair and the portions you get will definitely fill you up.
Great Italian lunch for a great price!!! – I am so happy that Mama Mia is now open for lunch. I work in the downtown area so it is a real treat to have such great Italian food for lunch. The new lunch menu is very extensive and well priced. It was hard to choose because everything look so great. The service as usual was remarkable and very personable. The new owner came by my table to ensure I was enjoying everything, which showed me the staff cares very much about their customers.
I ordered the Prosciutto Caprese Panini and it was absolutely delicious. The ciabatta bread and basil aioli complemented the prosciutto perfectly.
I highly recommend Mama Mia for lunch. You certainly will not be disappointed.
