Had a late dinner with three other couples on a busy Saturday night. Excellent food and service! The waitstaff didn't rush us at all even though we were the last diners there near closing time. Feel-good vibe, where you'd feel comfortable dressed up or down. Have been numerous times and it never disappoints.

The ambiance is not your typical cozy romantic Italian: it is louder and darker, almost an industrial restaurant feel. It's also tightly crowded with tables close to each other. The service is really excellent. There are a *lot* of wait staff, and our server was very attentive the entire evening. When one dish was over-spiced, she immediately volunteered to get... More

At one time, quite awhile ago, Mama Melina's place had some real authentic Italian charm. That was back when it was located in the Roosevelt District and run by Mama herself, along with her husband Pasquale who used to play the piano and sing O Sole Mio in his enthusiastic and joyful Italian tenor. I think both eventually returned to... More

Some friends and I met at Mamma Melina's and I loved their 2 course option lunches - either hors doevre/entree or entree/dessert. Service was a bit slow, but food was great.

We have been going to Mama Melina's for years. It never disappoints. Great food, lovely seasonal choices, fabulous outdoor dining and really nice wine list. Also, a terrific happy hour! The staff is always so friendly and accommodating. I took a girl friend for a birthday lunch, just recently and they treated her like a queen! So very nice! Can't... More

We were very impressed with the quality of the cuisine and attentive, well-informed service. The beverages, appetizers, entrees, and deserts were reasonably priced and truly delicious. The environment and atmosphere were well above average. Dining tables were positioned spaciously apart allowing for more privacy than most establishments allow. Ceiling track curtains provide separation for large parties. A well planned space... More
