You come to Mama Alvino's for one thing:
- Calzones

My family has been eating here for years, and we never had a bad meal. It is consistently good. Not too much to get overly excited about, but the calzones are second to none. Mama Alvino's is a nice low key, good value, and great tasting choice for the Italian fix. I can't think of a better Italian alternative in Bellevue.

I travel a lot, avoid the chain restaurants and love taking in cuisine that's "a little off the beaten path". Saw that this place received some decent marks and decided to give it a "carry-out" try. My opinion, a good crust is over half the battle in a good solid pie. Get the sauce locked in and the toppings is a no-brainer and you're off to the races. I was not impressed here at all. Unfortunately, the thin "folded" crust was almost like chewing cardboard. Pizza hut or another chain would have been a far better choice.

Vistied Mama Alvino's for lunch. Its a small little place but the food is great. Homemade pasta is the best. I ordered a 1/2 size spaghetti plate which was filling. Try the Mama sticks, they are to die for...Yum!

This little restaurant is a gem and should not be missed. The pizza is good, but the calzones are fantastic and the prices are very, very good.

Great pizza and calzones, salad is fresh, crisp and cold. Sometimes the service is a bit lacking, with the exception of the owner I think turn-over is a bit high. They deliver which is an added bonus.
