Had lunch here and the pizza was great. Dough was nice and chewy, toppings were just right, and the family size was HUGE! Meat lovers was great, pepperoni was great, veggie was good, spinach dip was good though slightly oily...it tasted great. Service was top notch, and we were a large group of 10. Some of the specialty pizza's looked... More

If you aren't familiar with the area it can be hard to find. Once you have you'll be glad you did. Very good service, nice atmosphere, excellent pizza! They also have traditional dishes.

I did not know whether to eat in mcallen or wait until I got home. Mama mia pizzeria is by far the best choice. The pizza is great and you can taste the freshness off the first bite. Vanessa and tahere are awesome greeters and servers. Great ambience and the wait time was beyond reasonable. Like their sign says: enter... More

This was a great place!!! Out to dinner with sister and her old supervisor. When they asked if we liked pizza this was the only place they said to go to. Not a disappointment or problem. Great attentive staff, great pizza and lasagna along side cold beer on iced mugs. Warm friendly family atmosphere. Would come back tomorrow.

The pizza is delicious and easily better than John's of Times Square. With great selections and combinations of pizza the greatest attribute is the Taste. Subtle yet bold, exquisite but familiar. The fettuccine Alfredo was tempting and it threw me back to Luna's in Little Italy NYC where the veal tasted like nectar from the gods. I will return again... More

My Family and I Love this place. Food is Great just only reason not a 5 rating is cause of the waiters. Majority of times we have gotten awful waiters (like they don't want to be there) and make faces when you ask for more ketchup (had to go 3 times for a little cup of ketchup). Hopefully they can...

I love the pizza. I wish they delivered but I usually have no problem ordering the pizza and picking it up for the family. It's great.

We had a large Mama Mia Special Deluxe pizza, expecting to have take-out but it was so good we ate it all! We ordered thin crust and added fresh basil. Very very good and fresh. Lots of cheese too. Our server Arianna was very accommodating and friendly. We will return! Loved the ambience too.

A popular place among the seniors. The pasta is ok too. Friendly staff. The place can get busy at lunch time so keep that in mind.

I can't say enough great things about this restaurant. The food is amazing and the service is good and the atmosphere takes you to little Italy. I've been to Italy, so I would know. The pizza is perfect. Don't expect a fast food pizza taste here. It's always fresh and plentiful and the cheese just melts off your plate. Love,... More
