                          We here at Pizza Shuttle in Carlsbad think Mama 'N Papa have great food. Their spaghetti and lasagna are delicious, and as for their Pizza, it's equally delicious. Great food. We love it.

                          The restaurant is a little dark. The food was awesome. I had raviolis with a marinara sauce, salad and bread. All for a reasonable price and the service was good. The waitress is friendly and checked back with us often making sure we were happy.

                          Come hungry because they really pile on the great Italian food. The lasagna is my favorite and the meatballs are the size of a baseball, no kidding. The sauce is fantastic and the owners and staff are the greatest. I don't know who the guy was who wrote the negative comment, he must own a competing restaurant. We have eaten there many times and never had a bad experience. We will be there with a bunch of friends most Friday nights.

                          My parents started taking me to this restaurant when I was a little kid. Back then they had a clown on friday nights, I'm not sure if they do that anymore. My dad loves the pasta, but my favorite is the lasagna! Everyone I bring loves the food as well. The house dressing is great and the portions are always huge (even the lunch size). No one I know has ever had bad customer service there and the staff always makes you feel at home. Great for dates, lunch with your boss, a little league party or just a family dinner.

                          We usually eat in at this place and usually have good food and service, but tonight when we got our pizza to go it was not up to the usual standards. As prudent customers, we called to let them know. We were "NOT" met with good customer service from the very on-set of our call. The owner was arrogant and also wanted us to drive the pizza back to the resturante to prove to him that the pizza was sub-par. Seems as though they are Skimping on the Toppings now. After the owner was so rude and arrogant we wont eat there again. They lost good customers because we usually come with a crowd.

                          Since I was knee high to a grasshopper, my mouth would salivate at the mere mention of our familly going to Mama n Papa's. The pasta sauces are out of this world yummy! The salads are plentiful and and the house dressing is an outstanding combination of either ranch or blue chese (unsure, it's a secret) and thier wonderfull home made itallian dressing that I have never had anywhere else. The food is fresh, the atmosphere is relaxing and your glass will never be empty. The lunch deals are outstanding without compromising on taste or quantity. You won't leave there hungry.

                          Mama N Papa's Pizza Grotto has some of the best pizza in North County. The prices are reasonable and the service is fast and friendly. You will not be disappointed if you are a cheese lover...they add tons of cheese to their pies and the other toppings are ample as well. This is a great place for a night out, as they have red and white checkered table cloths, red glowing candles and bottles of vino throughout. It is also great for family gatherings, there is plenty of room in the back for large groups. I wish they delivered!
