“Good Italian food – off the beaten path in Saratoga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2011

Came here tonight with my mother [it’s around the corner from her house] for dinner. They’ve recently expanded the restaurant – we sat in a new large comfortable room [behind the new bakery/café]. It was a Tuesday night and there was a significant amount of business. MamaMia’s started out as a pizzeria with red sauce Italian food [which was always good], but they’ve been branching out. Mom had her usual, veal parmesan [and loved it]. I tried the special, a tasty angus steak with porcinis served with risotto and asparagus [pictured]. It was delicious. I’ve always enjoyed their pizza as well. Tables all around us were eating multiple gigantic [and delectable looking] NY –style pizzas. Very fair prices and friendly, careful service.

“Not your average pizzeria!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2011

Enjoyed our first visit and started with assorted appetizers which were very good. Service was very attentive and enjoyed watching overhead PowerPoint of Sicily.
Entrees were very good and sauce on pasta was better than most restaurants. Very diverse menu and fairly prices. Save room for dessert!
Will go back again and try pizza which looked great.

“5th visit - every one memorable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2011

Marinara sauce is as good as it gets ......... anywhere!
Pizza is perfect!
Entrees are exquisite!
Menu is complete!
Pastry bar/coffee shop (fairly new) is "the icing on the cake", literally!
If you can criticize the the food at this place, you should'nt ever dine out ..... because you must be one hell of a cook.
As for me, can't wait to go back! My personal favorite Italian restaurant.
Oh yeah, the staff is the best. They work their butts off and they seem to love it!?!?

“Best Pizza in Saratoga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

A hidden gem in Saratoga, off broadway but worth going if looking for a good pizza. Good crust, good sized portions and friendly service. Often overlooked in town, but the best pizza in saratoga in my opinion. I live in Saratoga, and have tried most of the hot spots, but go here when looking to get a nice dinner. Next door has pastry's that are now open in Mama Mia's bakery for an after dinner dessert that is very good.

“What's the big deal?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

The meal was overcooked. The pizza tasted ok but was nothing special. The lunch crowd was busy and server was not very friendly or efficient. For a forty dollar lunch it was nothing spectacular. I still can't believe it's the best Italian Saratoga has to offer according to reviews here.

Would definitely skip it and go elsewhere next time we visit the area.
