Our favorite place to go.....especially Friday night! – They also do catering for all events....and it's not just Italian Food....they do most everything for a wedding, party, corporate event, etc.
Fantastic Food – We here at Pizza Shuttle in Carlsbad think Mama 'N Papa have great food. Their spaghetti and lasagna are delicious, and as for their Pizza, it's equally delicious. Great food. We love it.
Dependably wonderful food......at very reasonable prices – We have been going to MM/PPs for years and years! My absolutely number 1 thing is their house Italian dressing.....2nd is the regular bread they serve and 3rd is the Alfredo Sauce (lots of garlic). My husband's is the dressing, then the meatballs and sausages. The portions are generous, service is friendly and prices are very reasonable!!!
We love to get the bread and ask for a bowl of the Italian and use it as a bread dip....heaven!
they also make a really good marinara sauce......and serve great wine!
We love this place, best lasagna anywhere, fantastic pizza, great service. – Come hungry because they really pile on the great Italian food. The lasagna is my favorite and the meatballs are the size of a baseball, no kidding. The sauce is fantastic and the owners and staff are the greatest. I don't know who the guy was who wrote the negative comment, he must own a competing restaurant. We have eaten there many times and never had a bad experience. We will be there with a bunch of friends most Friday nights.
Spaghetti and ravioli comes piled high at this family-friendly Italian restaurant. – In Short
Since 1986, families have been coming to this casual pizza and pasta restaurant. Inside, the dining room is filled with red-and-white checkered tablecloths, decorative wine bottles and photos of the many little league teams that the owners have sponsored over the years. There are the standard ravioli and lasagna options but the menu's highlight may be the special chicken plate: a dish of breaded chicken and spaghetti sauteed with mushrooms, bell pepper and onion.
The Lasagna is my favorite! – My parents started taking me to this restaurant when I was a little kid. Back then they had a clown on friday nights, I'm not sure if they do that anymore. My dad loves the pasta, but my favorite is the lasagna! Everyone I bring loves the food as well. The house dressing is great and the portions are always huge (even the lunch size). No one I know has ever had bad customer service there and the staff always makes you feel at home. Great for dates, lunch with your boss, a little league party or just a family dinner.
Rude Owner and Skimpy Toppings – We usually eat in at this place and usually have good food and service, but tonight when we got our pizza to go it was not up to the usual standards. As prudent customers, we called to let them know. We were "NOT" met with good customer service from the very on-set of our call. The owner was arrogant and also wanted us to drive the pizza back to the resturante to prove to him that the pizza was sub-par. Seems as though they are Skimping on the Toppings now. After the owner was so rude and arrogant we wont eat there again. They lost good customers because we usually come with a crowd.
Delicious pizza – Mama N Papa's Pizza Grotto has some of the best pizza in North County. The prices are reasonable and the service is fast and friendly. You will not be disappointed if you are a cheese lover...they add tons of cheese to their pies and the other toppings are ample as well. This is a great place for a night out, as they have red and white checkered table cloths, red glowing candles and bottles of vino throughout. It is also great for family gatherings, there is plenty of room in the back for large groups. I wish they delivered!
Awesome Food Great Value – If your looking for a Great tasting pizza pie then this is the spot. Every pizza is loading with the toppings you want oh and by the way don't worry about extra cheese because MaMa's and PaPa's doesn't skimp on that as well. Their home made Italian dressing is to die for on a salad or to dip your bread into. The house dressing, Blue Cheese with their home made Italian on top, is a favorite on their salads along with their loaf of bread that comes with it. If your looking for a plate of spaghetti don't forget to add a homemade meatball or Italian sausage. Or how about a slab of their Lasanga with a Meatball or Italian Sausage. The portions are huge so you need to bring a big appetite along. MaMa's and PaPa's serves other italian foods with the guarantee you won't leave disatisfied or HUNGRY!!
