MY FAMILY DECIDED TO TREAT ME OUT FOR FATHERS DAY. THEY MADE RESERVATIONS AT AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT WE HAD HEARD ABOUT BUT HAVE NEVER GONE TO. MAMA MIA'S IS DEFINITELY A GEM. WE STARTED WITH A COUPLE OF APPETIZERS, THE SHRIMP AND CALAMARI PALERMO WAS SO GOOD, FRESH AND UNIQUE. THE FRIED MOZZARELLA WAS ALSO EXELLENT WITH A FRESH MARINARA SAUCE FOR DIPPING.
OUR ENTREES INCLUDED A SPECIAL OF THE DAY, 2LB MAINE LOBSTER OREGANATO, WHICH WAS COOKED TO PERFECTION. MY SON HAD A RIBEYE STEAK, ALSO A SPECIAL OF THE DAY, TOPPED WITH SOME KIND OF COGNAC SAUCE. THE VEAL PARMIGIANO, SUGGESTED BY OUR SERVER, WAS LIKE NOTHING I EVER SAW BEFORE. HUGE PORTION AND I BELIEVE IT WAS A VEAL CHOP THAT HAD BEEN BUTTERFLIED AND POUNDED THIN, TOPPED WITH A FRESH MOZZARELLA AND THAT GREAT TASTING MARINARA SAUCE.
WE HAVE FOUND A GREAT PLACE WITH QUALITY SERVICE AND EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE PRICES
Amazing food and service for starters. My party of 6 indulged in an appetizer feast with clams casino, shrimp and calamari palermo, truffled pannini,bruchetta and fried mozzarella! After that we ate family style or sharing things because we saw how big the portions were. Our dinners were Frutti di Mare with shrimp, mussels, clams, and scallops with linguini and Chateaubriand with 40oz of tenderloin, potatoes, mushrooms, and peppers. For dessert we tried their Sushi room (yes they also have sushi bar thet have heard is amazing!)tempura cheese cake and bannanas served with the best cappeccino I have ever had! Our server was a sweet young girl who was very suggestive and kept our drinks full and table clean. I have never had a better experience! p.s. Grand Total only $400 with 25% tip!!!
With heaping portions and creative dishes, you won't leave hungrey or unsatisfied. Just ask your server what they suggest you eat. My server was more than happy to tell me what her favorite dishes were. I took her suggestions on the Veal parm. It was one the best meals I have ever had outside of mom's kitchen!
I have to say I was totally impressed with everything they have to offer. They have some of the biggest sized dishes you will ever see. They have some delicious garlic rolls to start you off. I had a salad with a great creamy Italian dressing (and I like French dressing). And for dinner I had a veal Parmesan which was recommended by our server. My service was good, my food was excellent, (and I had enough to take home and enjoy as I write this) and I would recommend to anybody looking for Italian food in Hollywood.
WE made a mistake and ordered Yellowtail Snapper it was rotten and 2 days latter we are still sick . Manager insisted food was fine and he was nasty and lied by saying they only use fresh fish. Resaurant has certainely gone down hill or down the drain.
STAY AWAY... HAVE TO SUE OWNER!!!
The GOOD: Bar drinks, food was good and tasty.
The BAD: The waiter spilled lobster butter and juice all over my wife s chair (she was not seated, thank God), and her BRAND NEW SATIN TIFFANY & CO PURSE!! This was only the second time she used the purse so was truly brand new. Yes it was an accident, the waiter s fault and he and the GM, Vito apologized, but the GM wanted us to take it to his cleaner. However, since the purse is satin (not leather or canvas), I wanted to have Tiffany s inspect and, if possible, clean it.
The UGLY: Tiffany s in New York said the satin is permanently damaged and the purse has to be replaced. Emails and a Certified Letter to the restaurant requesting replacement were ignored. A phone call to the GM, Vito, brought DENIALS OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS. So, now we are SUING MAMA MIA in court so my wife can have the new purse that they took away by damaging it. :-(
i've been to mama mia's for the past 3 friday's in a row b/c of their happy hour. they have 3 for 1 cocktails and 2 for 1 appetizers. the catch is you have to sit at the bar. but for that price its well worth it. get your drink on and then go somewhere else to keep on partying.
The best restauant for the past 20 years! Great service, Managers who care, outstanding recipe's and portions, and not to mention the best run for your money!! Full bar with awesome signature drinks, FREE valet parking. You cant beat it!
