Dinner was great.....had a halibut on special with gnocchi and both were delicious. Seems a popular place for happy hour/after work, as we were there on a Thursday night and restaurant and bar areas were both packed. Definitely will be back!

We have been to Mamma Melina's twice. The most recent visit, while the food was fine, was marred by the fact that it was so loud at the center table we were given (in spite of our reservation) that we could barely hear ourselves think, much less have a nice conversation with the couple we had come with. I would... More

You know you have found a most perfect Happy Hour when the bar food menu is extensive and reads like a menu in the dining room!! Easily 15-20 options inclusive of pizza's. All food during HH was half off. Large bowl of rigatoni with a very meaty bolognese was $8, smallish Caesar salad was $4.25. Two glasses of HH Sangiovese... More

A friend recommended stopping by Mamma Melina's for happy hour... we had about an hour before an event. Wow! What amazing service from the whole wait staff, but especially our waitperson Traci. The restaurant was packed, but she was attentive, knowledgeable, great with offering gluten free options to my friend, and brought us our check knowing we had a time... More

Had a late dinner with three other couples on a busy Saturday night. Excellent food and service! The waitstaff didn't rush us at all even though we were the last diners there near closing time. Feel-good vibe, where you'd feel comfortable dressed up or down. Have been numerous times and it never disappoints.

We had somd of the best and friendliest service I have ever had. Starters were very tasty (carpaccio and prosciutto), mains were good sized and well prepared (Sirloin and Osso Bucco) - very... More

The ambiance is not your typical cozy romantic Italian: it is louder and darker, almost an industrial restaurant feel. It's also tightly crowded with tables close to each other. The service is really excellent. There are a *lot* of wait staff, and our server was very attentive the entire evening. When one dish was over-spiced, she immediately volunteered to get... More

At one time, quite awhile ago, Mama Melina's place had some real authentic Italian charm. That was back when it was located in the Roosevelt District and run by Mama herself, along with her husband Pasquale who used to play the piano and sing O Sole Mio in his enthusiastic and joyful Italian tenor. I think both eventually returned to... More
