    Nice cocktails, and fried mozzarella was so yummy. Carbonara was excellent. Kids portions are pretty small for price. Place needs a deep clean and some maintenance/updating- sticky bathroom doors, wobbly chairs, etc. Good wait staff. Would go again.

    1000% we are coming back. Our service was outstanding from Sara. The food was delicious, I had chicken Parmesan and my wife had the tenderloin tips risotto. We had the charcuterie board and fried mozzarella and they were amazing. We finished our meal with the tiramisu and cannoli and they were absolutely to die for. I would only change the indoor music to Old school crooners music to fit the ambience and all of the chandeliers.

    We arrived at 6:15. Were sat quickly (3-5 min). At 6:40 I got up and asked if someone could wait on us please. They were very apologetic, kind and helpful after that. Food was delicious, servers were very nice. Dessert had a long dark curly hair baked into it. We got a free appetizer and dessert for our trouble.

    I don’t usually provide reviews, but this place deserves high praise. Everything including atmosphere, table service (Ms. Bebee was fantastic), the amazingly delicious food, and reasonable prices puts this restaurant at the top of my list for Italian in Portland. I highly recommend this for first dates and even just a nice night out for old married couples like us. Bring the kids - there’s pizza!

    Good italian place in downtown portland. Food was excellent. Drinks were fantastic (especially the old-fashioned). Service was great. Cool vibe. Only thing that prevented a perfect score was the wedge salad was a little skimpy (both in size and in toppings). Overall, great place to have dinner.

    I wasn’t impressed, food was ok. Service was great! They wouldn’t substitute some mashed potatoes for my pasta. They claimed to not have enough mashed potatoes to all a substitution. I probably won’t make it a point to go back. I ordered dessert to go & didn’t receive any utensils even after our server learned we were in a hotel.

    We loved it!!! First time there and Bebba waited on us! She was fabulous and gave us wonderful recommendations and excellent service. We will go back for the food and for her personality and service! We got the chicken piccatta and it was excellent with very large portions, enough to easily share. Everyone was very kind. The only item to be aware of is the step into the restaurant is a step up from the street and when you leave the restaurant it is a pretty decent step down onto the street if your not prepared for it. My husband was talking and as he stepped out of the restaurant he fell down on the sidewalk, so pay attention when departing.

    Had been in quite often for lunch, but this was first time for dinner. The veal marsala had a char taste to it, which I have never come across. Isn't it normally fried in a pan with olive oil? The appetizers were good, but way to big - almost meals in the themselves. Maybe prioritize quality over quantity. Service, as usual, was fantastic.

    This was our first time dining at Mama Mia’s and I could not be more impressed. I had a warm boozy chocolate drink that was really tasty. We had an appetizer of Brussel sprouts which was a really large quantity and tasted great. The focaccia bread was out of this world. Our entrée meals were large portions and delicious. Chicken parm and chicken piccata were both excellent. The service was top notch and the ambiance was great. The chandeliers are so beautiful. I’m excited to go back and work my way through the whole menu because they have new customers for life.

    I have been to this establishment twice and both times it has been wonderful. I have prdered the calamari appetizer and it was cooked perfectly, not overdone. The manicotti is incredible and the seafood pasta is to die for. Amazing quality. Look forward to going back.

    Our server was absolutely fantastic. She didn't miss a beat with our soda refills. She also suggested fried mozzarella for an appetizer, along with their most delicious amaretto cheesecake for dessert. For dinner, I had chicken parmesan and fettuccine alfredo. My husband had veal marsala with pesto fettuccine. The entire meal and experience was incredible. The portions were also very generous. We will be back. If you're reading this review, do not hesitate to try this restaurant.
