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.
Very delicious food , staff was accommodating and helpful , didn’t have to wait to be seated . Overall a great experience and will return again .
Great happy hour. Wish the H/Hr bar menu included more of Cinque Terre menu. We'll go back soon.
We had a great time! Thank you Sean for
Late Valentine’s dinner. Loved everything we ordered starting with the bread, bruschetta, lasagna, spicy meatballs, rigatoni bolognese and the special ravioli. Loved every dish!!!
Food was good didn't have the 2 dishes we had originally wanted as we were on the non covid menu no selections of non alcoholic drinks on menu
We went here for for the first time last weekend. The service was excellent, food was delicious, the ambiance was nice. We will definitely return.
The pasta and lamb shank are amazing! Will definitely come again soon.
Great atmosphere during COVID, we felt safe and comfortable. Excellent service and food was delicious!

Always great food and awesome service!!
Great service and amazing food
We just had the best time & look forward to going back soon!
The staff was great, very friendly and gave us a free dessert for our anniversary! I love that bread was brought out instantly (I was starving) and overall, the food was brought out very promptly.
Mamma Melina is one our favorite restaurants to visit when we are in Seattle. The food is delicious, the service exceptional and the ambiance is modern and inviting. We would highly recommend this dining experience.
Mamma Melina is one of my favorite spots. Their cleanliness and detail to attention as a waitstaff and restaurant was and is always amazing. Quick to welcome and serve PLUS make you feel comfortable! Bravo and Brava!! ONE OF THE BEST PLACES N SEATTLE. I love bringing out of town guests here! Always a hit!
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.
I came here for my birthday. Our server was very nice and friendly. We were able to make changes with the pasta on the menu which was a plus! Food is good and reasonably priced. I enjoy the bruschetta, SO GOOD
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.
I love everything about this place.
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.
Excellent food and service. Good social distancing and safety measures without detracting from the dining experience.
Super nice staff, the food was amazing and service was really quick! Overall a really great experience!
Best Italian food we have had in a while. definitely best in Seattle. Spicy meatballs and salsiccia con polenta were superb. the ambience, service, all were perfect. we would love to go here frequently. Highly recommended.
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.
Celebrated our 51st wedding anniversary dinner. Couldn't be more pleased, and to top[ it off it was Seattle Restaurant Week so the meal was extra special. Thanks Mamma Melina
I have never been disappointed. Everyone will enjoy it!
Came to Mamma Melinas for restaurant week. Every course wa delicious!
Came for the SRW, handed us a menu, lots of choices for each course. Waitress and waiters are very friendly, nice experience. Risotto was not something I appreciated, but not too bad. Bread, deserts are awesome!
Our waitress Heather was great! I also really appreciate the complimentary focaccia bread - many places charge for that now!
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!
We enjoyed a fresh and delicious entree of seafood ravioli cooked to perfection. We capped our dinner off with a slice of fantastic olive oil cake served with rich pistachio ice cream. We're looking forward to our next visit.
Very Nice Restaurant. Clean and well lit. Food was very tasty-Appetizers were wonderful. First time coming to this restaurant and will return.
The service was wonderful and attentive as always. With Covid, there weren’t many diners there. The lunch menu was varied and the food was good.
Annie was fantastic along with the rest of the staff at mama melinas.
Thank you for all you do for us!
Great social distancing, lunch special and patio! It was my mother’s birthday and brought over a candle and tiramisu without me asking! We will be back!
Excellent for COVID safe environment as well as great food and great service.
