We come to Mamma Melina every other month or so and usually have a great time. However, this previous time on Tuesday 3/2, we had the worst experience we’ve ever had.

Our server greeted us by saying “Do you know what you want?” He checked back when our food came by saying “Have everything you need?” And then he never came back. We waited for 20 minutes and he still never came back. Other servers came and cleared our table, and we watched our server visit other tables but he completely ignored or forgot about us. I ended up going to the host stand to pay, and even then, he saw us do this and still never said a word or approached us.

This was the second time we've dined at Mamma Melina. Food has been consistently high quality and service levels excellent. I would highly recommend this establishment for a great night out.

I don't know what happened to Mama Melina because the quality of food declined significantly. We ordered two pasta dishes and both came with mushy and way over cooked noodle. We told the waiter to tell the chef about it but I don't know if he did talk to the chef or not. This happened during all three times we ate at the restaurant. We loved Mama Melina but after three times of bad food, I am not sure about Mama Melina.
I should not have to tell the chef how to cook the pasta every time we eat there. I only ate half the food because it was just not edible.

We can always count on the team at Mama Melina to go above and beyond. Covid procedures are top notch. We celebrated our anniversary and they made sure our night was special. They even surprised us with a celebratory tiramisu at the end of our meal.

Service was good but not impressed with the main dish, too long under the heating lamp, bit dry and pasta was too ardente. Cauliflower soup was very good.

Everything we had was delicious. Charcuterie, spaghetti and gnocchi were stellar. Loved the tiramisu too. Tough to grade ambience during covid since they're limited to spacing but the service was excellent. Highly recommend.

This was our first time to Mamma Melina's. We came for happy hour and had one of the best meals we have had in a long time. The cocktails were amazing. Meatballs were incredible. We also had the beet salad and tortellini they were out of this world. We will definitely be back again soon.

Started with the beet salad to start. Cannot beat the delicious pasta Bolognese sauce. We also had a favorite steelhead with roasted potatoes and grilled prawns. The wine list features a Super Tuscan red that is a delicious favorite. We will be back!
