Needed a place close to our hotel and this place did not disappoint. The food was phenomenal and the service was fantastic. Great way to end our final evening in Portland. Best Italian we’ve had in years.

Our sever was emotionless and snarky. Made rude comments to us. Felt like I was being served by a robot.

I’ve written a lot about this place and it is definitely a Go To for me! It is never less than excellent. We did have a small challenge on the last visit. Approximately 45 minutes after arriving, we were told there is another party coming in 45 minutes. The actual timing was not the problem but the feeling rushed was not the best. We had a discussion and the team received the feedback well. Overall, excellent restaurant and a small glitch.

Nothing like having a themed restaurant with the correct music, in this case Italian songs. The staff was pleasant and I always enjoy when the waiters box the left overs, instead of just handing off a container. My wife is wheelchair bound and there is an easy entrance into dining room.
Food was good size and very good. Calamari was perfect, but Mozzarella was salty. Cannoli very creamy, although Panna Cotta was a little old an thick. When complained, the item was immediately taken off bill.
Overall we would return.

The food was excellent, but the service was quite terrible. Our waitress was awkward and even rude at times. We will return as long as we don’t have to deal with that person again.

The salad was so drenched in dressing I couldn’t eat it. I’m not one to send stuff back at a restaurant but the waitress offered to switch it out. The 2nd salad was just as bad. Our side of pasta had so much oil on it it looked like soup. The chicken was ok. The waitress was very good.

I had a great time at Mama Mia Trattoria. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable about gluten-free options and helped me in every way. The arrabbiata was great and my companion really enjoyed her Bolognese. Thanks, Mama Mia Trattoria, we will be back!

The staff were pleasant, attentive and accommodating. The food came out in a reasonable time and was delicious. The prices are a little high but the food and experience are both a nice treat. Lots of vegan and GF options as well which is a huge bonus.

We were seated next to a family with young, unruly children…
We were offered the option to move but we were basically the only ones in the restaurant at that point so it would have looked really bad.
The chicken in the chicken parm was flattened and dry.
The garlic bread was drowning in garlic…we had to scrape most of it off to eat it.

This was the worst Italian dinner I ever had. Pasta was overcooked and mushy. Bolognese was tomatoey with no meat flavor. Pesto Genovese flat. Wine was good! Service good. I did not eat my dinner. A lot of money for crap.
