The BEST muffaletta this side of NOLA! Two sizes small is plenty for one person, large can feed two. So fresh. Hubs loves their pizza, all handmade and fresh ingredients.

Really small authentic Italian restaurant-only 9 tables in the place but the food is awesome!!!!!! I lave their muffuletta, pizza, lasagna and one of the best salad bars around. The lunch buffet is a great deal.

They are very stingy with their buffet. I've eaten there quite a few times over the years and it's hard to get them to put out anything on the buffet. Last time I was there they had no pizza, pasta, bread, and one piece of lasagna. When I asked if they were going to put any more food out, I... More

Muffa's only has the one oven that I saw, so sometimes there's no pizza left on the lunch buffet because they're cooking to go orders. I gotta say, that's a minor issue, because everything else is fabulous.

The food here is so good. They will make your food to order so don't be in a hurry. This is not fast food. Great service and wonderful value.

Muffaletta's sign jumped out at me as we were driving through Bessemer. I'm so glad we stopped. My cousin and I are visiting and we split the 9 inch Muffaletta. So good. Very friendly place. I was told by one of the patrons that the cheese ravioli was excellent.

We went here for lunch and man I'm glad we did! Pass on the buffet and get a 6 inch muffalletta! First they are very well done - good crisp bread, delicious meats and cheese and plenty of olives. It was the best I've had outside of Central Grocery in NOLA! The service was a bit slow but it was... More
