I was surprised to find several negative comments here about Mama Mia's. We have dined there several times (when we're in town) over the last couple of years. Every time the food has been delicious and the wait staff have been attentive and polite. I almost always get the Chicken Jerusalem and it is FABULOUS!

I wish I found these reviews before I just spent $90 bucks... I just had the worst fettucini alfredo with chicken ??? and the "chicken" was questionable. It was overcooked, slimy, and fatty! The alfredo sauce tasted like it had some other type of gravy mixed in it... The waitress was working her butt off but because she was working so hard we missed any other type of atmosphere than "hectic". The best part of the night was the garlic, vineger, and oil dip for the bread. The garlic fries were below average. Very very disapointing... Neither me or my 2 sons really touched our meal. We politely said we filled up on bread, and they said that happens all the time. Hmmm. Says a lot.

Pros: Close to gilroy gardens, crayons to write on the paper on the table.

Cons: bad food, not enough servers

Maybe I am hard to please at times, but when I go out to eat I feel I am paying for good food, polite service. those are the only two things I expect. With MAma Mias I have only gotten average food and always poor service. No I have eaten in real Itilian restaurants as well as many traditiaonl Itialian homes. and NEVER have I recieved such bad service.

They canceled a reservation on me without notice, and I had planned a LARGE client event there that had to changed to my home and catered at the last minute which cost some big $$$$.

Our friends invited us to dinner there and we didn;t want to be rude and not accept and thought it would be different but we were WRONG again..... Food was a little better BUT service for the lack of a better word sucked.

The final time was a few weeks ago, for a clients birthday party, again food was a little better but rude waitstaff and hostess. Bad bad bad.. all the way around.

Whether it is pasta, chicken, pizza, seafood, veal, or terrific salads Mama Mia's is a wonderful choice for lunch or dinner. My personal favorites are the Chicken Jerusalem - sauteed artichokes, mushrooms, and a creamy white wine sauce - or the Roasted Garlic Pizza - roasted Gilroy garlic, carmelized onions, gorgonzola cheese, and Kalamata olives. Other terrific dishes include the Eggplant Parmagiana and Veal Piccata along with the Calamari appetizer.

Often busy for dinner on weekend evenings, this is a great choice for groups large and small. Call ahead for reservations.

This was the most dissapointing dinner at an "Italian Restaurant" that I think I have ever had. I ordered the Osso Bucco. The chef made the sauce with poultry stock. It was served with pasty mashed potatoes, the meat was dry and the vegetables were completely undercooked. How do you screw up a dish like this? The waitstaff was all over the place. We must have had three different servers throughout our meal come to our table. On a lighter note, the calamari fritti was very good. Everything else was far from "authentic". Don't waste your time or money.
