We used to eat at Mama's every Friday when I was a kid, and I still enjoy eating there as an adult. The food is delicious--I particularly like the mostaccioli. Each meal comes with fresh bread and a small ice cream cone for dessert. The...More

I eat here all the time, the staff is friendly and the food is always hot and fresh! My favorite thing is probably the pizza fries! Picture is of the lunch Mostaccioli with baked cheese! I got the meatball on the side.

Our family has been to Mama's Pizza for YEARS now! From what my mother says, I have been going to Mama's since I was a child. (I'm now 40ish) Mama's is known for its simply stunning sauce! It's like an explosion party in your mouth....More

This is classic, good quality, Italian-American food. Family owned and run for 50 years, so you know it's good. Portions are huge. Service is prompt, efficient, and friendly. Prices are great. Pizza oven in the front, kitchen in the back, and some tables and booths...More

How large are the pizzas?

Response from heyjude0119 | Reviewed this property |
We ordered a large, 15" pizza and had to bring about 1/3+ home. Our friends also ordered the same size and also had to bring lots home. Of course, we love left-over pizza in our home!
