    Food is delicious & service is superb, though a little too fast. So hold off on ordering, unless of course you are in a hurry, then it's perfect.

    We have been coming to Mamma Melina’s for years. Last night’s meal was a disappointment. The restaurant was filled with too many tables and unfortunately our table was in a cold dark spot with a view of stacked chairs, tables, coolers outside. The service was very slow and we were left for long periods of time without anyone checking on the table. We had to request more water, for dessert menu and for empty plates to be bused. The food was tasteless and over cooked. The whole experience was a big disappointment.

    Very modern look and feel. The bread with oil was good. I went during Seattle Restaurant ween so I can’s speak to the price of the food normally. I think the food was overall good, just not too 10 Italian places (but I’m from New Jersey).

    The steelhead was cooked to perfection as were the prawns. The lamb shank was melt in your mouth and the lasagne was delicious. The Restaurant Week specials were a bargain for 3 courses. Our waiter was excellent. We will return.

    We stumbled upon this amazing neighborhood restaurant about 5 years ago and were so impressed we make a point of coming back every year when we come to visit Seattle. The food is SO delicious, excellent wine list - the server is always happy to offer a solid pairing recommendation, and the service is top notch. We love everything about this restaurant and look forward to dining there again!!

    Despite being given the absolute worst table in the place - super high traffic area - we stuck it out thanks to our amazing server Heather. Food was very very good. Delicious Pinot. Calamari was good, though would have preferred fried. Carne plate was delicious. Buratta was excellent. This place is gorgeous but very loud. If you’re taking a date ask for a quiet table near the back. Overall 4/5 experience.

    The server was condescending. Food was very mediocre. Needs more flavor…go on a limb and add more basil to the gnocchi. Tomato sauce on lasagna tasted like that from a can. Some simple tweaks would greatly improve the food. Presentation of food was nice!!!
