Being just a short distance from University of Washington's Husky stadium, on the evening of a big game day probably wasn't the smartest thing to do. But we were staying at the hotel across the street so it was very convenient. But I guess all of the students and parents of students staying at the same hotel as us had... More

This is the new (well 4 years ago) of a great standby restaurant. The "new" building is awesome, cool, chic but inviting. We had the Seattle restaurant special (3 courses for $33) and it was great. Started with the roasted eggplant -which was well done, the roasted duck great and the olive oil cake was superb. Service was also very... More

We enjoyed our visit sitting outside for lunch on a warm September day. They had plenty of choices that were filling but not too filling. The service was excellent and the wine choices plentiful.

Dressy but not pretentious. Linen table cloths, full bar, wide array of Italian entree selections, great service, never rushed with free parking near the University of Washington.

I had the octopus salad and saffron rice. Both were very good, but not outstanding. I would say the service was very efficient in spite of being very busy when I was there. I would recommend the pear tart with vanilla ice cream, good note to end the meal on. All in all I think this place would be worth... More

Can't say enough good about Mamma Melina's. The staff (from hostess to waitress to manager) were absolutely top notch. The service was excellent, and the menu was varied. Great wine selection with some really good prices. The food was absolutely amazing...from items on the regular menu to the "specials" for the day...YUM! From arrival to past departure, we were very... More

We stayed at the Silver Cloud University Hotel and this restaurant is just a few steps away!!. We thought we would try the restaurant because the hotel gave us a card for a free appetizer. What a treat!! We had a salad and a pizza!! The best I have ever had!! The bread pudding was absolutely awesome too!!

We had a family dinner here recently, and really enjoyed it. We had a variety of appetizers, a couple of salads, and entrees from grilled shrimp to gnocchi. Shared a couple of really good desserts, too, inc. the olive oil cake, which was very tasty. Our server, Heather, was genuinely friendly, and very efficient. We enjoyed having her as our... More

Had a drink with work colleagues here and loved the Sicilian (blood orange) Prosecco, decor, and ambience. Few days later, I had lunch outside with family, and the pasta, fish and tiramisu were terrific. Bit of confusion when I ordered a fish (white meat) and was presented with salmon (pink). When I asked, waitress initially said it was what I... More

We went to Mamma Melina because it is a favorite restaurant of the friends we were with. I had a green salad with a lovely balsamic dressing, then some raviolini filled with ricotta and spinach and served in a cream sauce. It tasted excellent, but the ravioli was so undercooked that it was al dente squared and really inedible. Our... More
