We booked Mama Mia's to cater our wedding and it was one of the best wedding decisions we made! Tiffany, our contact person, helped us avoid a disaster with our original venue. We ended up having to leave our original venue because they weren't permitted for weddings and were having problems with the city. Tiffany was the one who initially tipped us off to these issues and kept us updated on any information she received. Tiffany was amazing in general. She pampered us, supported us, gave us general wedding planning advice and just went above and beyond. When we did our first venue walk through with Tiffany and are wedding coordinator, it felt like Tiffany was our wedding coordinator due to all the insight she provided. Tiffany was very engaged and helpful throughout all our interactions with her.We initially chose Mama Mia's because the food was great, reasonably priced, and Tiffany was awesome. Mama Mia's was the only caterer we tasted with who did not charge us for their tasting... and we ended up doing 2 tastings with Mama Mia's and they still didn't charge for it. Tiffany sent us home with yummy leftovers both times and made adjustments to the dishes at our request. Tiffany and her staff delivered at our wedding. The food was great. They saved me a plate of my favorite appetizers because we were taking photos during cocktail hour, remembered to bring me extra balsamic vinegar, and packed us leftovers.I would definitely recommend Mama Mia's to others and will use them again if the opportunity presents itself. My stress levels were significantly reduced by having them as our caterer. They made everything run so smoothly. More...

Great pizza and various choice of wines. Just felt the service got bit slower thatn before. Maybe just short handed?

The reviews on DoorDash were not as bad as the ones on Yelp so I decided to give this place a try. I'm certainly glad I did and was not swayed by the reviews.  Most of the reviews are about the pizza anyway and I had planned to order pasta. There certainly are a lot of Italian restaurants in the area but when I saw spaghetti arrabbiata, I knew this was the place! My order arrived on time by DoorDash and was hot. I sat down in my hotel room and grabbed the salt and pepper figuring I was going to need to doctor it up a little.  (Big pet peeve of mine is most Italian places don't salt their pasta water!!!)   I ordered the fettuccine Alfredo with mushrooms and an order of the spaghetti with arrabbiata sauce as I figured one would be good or better than the other. I've ordered from other places and ended up going hungry because some dishes are simply inedible. Long story short, both dishes were outstanding. No salt or pepper needed!   However, it was enough food to feed four people!!  I'm happy I kept an open mind. More...

This is Leavenworth, not Kansas City. I'm making MY comparison based on the restaurants I have been in Leavenworth.Traveled all over the world, five continents, so comparing is difficult in ONE way, however, MAMA MIA's is just like a family owned, European or whatever restaurant. Warm, friendly, and really the best they can be for the demand.I'm NOT an Italian cuisine foodie. Like Indian, Sushi.(Go to Sushi Garden, in Lansing)All being said, I LOVE this place!Went to Luigi's Italian Restaurant. Wish I was a ROBOT, it  just was THAT cold and uninviting. Food over priced , TV's annoying!I don't go to a restaurant to watch TV.Back to Mama Mia'sGo on the PATIO...pretend you're in Italy.After  only a second visit, ROB, the owner, knew my name and that I liked eggplant and WINE.Katie, was AWESOME.Came in and before I ordered, came to me with a glass of wine! She never even waited on me before...just KNEWI eat alone and just felt so comfortable and treated like a rock star!LOTS of locals come there...good sign.A SPINACH SALAD is an option compared to the iceberg, non nutritional, house salad that ALL restaurants serve. Granted, you pay more for HEALTHIER, but worth it!PORTIONS, thank goodness they are not OBESE makers!With ALL the focus on obesity, I'm grateful, they keep the portions HEALTHIER than most restaurantsOPTIONS for vegetarians too!Had the spinach/artichoke dip and a spinach salad. WONDERFUL!Chunks of artichoke! Imagine that.Give Mama Mia's a chance..Taylor, Marie, Katie, Caitlin, Sarah a joy to talk to. They WILL treat you like FAMILY!MY personal problem is that when asked by staff "How was it?" People won't look the waitress in the face and tell her.They say, "Great" but then tell their friends and YELP that it WASN'THOW can a restaurant improve if they don't KNOW things aren't good?IF and I say IF, you have ANY problem, let them know THEY CARE, that much!OK, that's itPLEASE give this wonder GEM a chance More...

I came here to celebrate a birthday dinner and it was such a great experience. This is a really nice restaurant for Gilroy, it's a fancy place with unique dishes, plus a lot of room for indoor and outdoor seating. My dish was the most popular one at our table: the tortellini with creamy tomato sauce. I even added meatballs to it which turned it into the perfect dish! It's a lot larger than it appears, and a very filling. The meatballs were slightly small but they put a lot on my plate. The linguini aglio pasta was pretty good but I thought it was slightly lacking in flavor. It did have a decent amount of vegetables and came with two large sausages on the side.The bruschetta was quite good but I could tell the tomatoes were either from a can or not completely fresh. There were multiple large, crunchy pieces of bread which I appreciated because there were several people at our table. We also ordered a large seafood soup which was huge and stuffed with a various clams, calamari, muscles, shrimp, and cooked fish. The broth was so good and creamy, almost curry-like with a very intense Italian flavors. I recommend this!We also ordered some creamy mushroom appetizer which is probably my favorite appetizer. It had small, whole mushrooms mixed in a cream of mushroom sauce that was great for dipping bread are eating by itself. This is the appetizer to beat!Desserts: tiramisu and cheesecake are rich and delicious. More...

I lived in Campbell and went to Mama Mia's often! I was thrilled when there was one here by my new home. The food is excellent but the menus do differ. If I could change one thing to be like Campbell it would be to eliminate the peppers and tomato atop the veal and chicken parm. Just gimme cheese! But we LOVE the build your own calzone option! Great food as always, just a thought! More...

My boyfriend who used to live in this area insisted we visit because it's his favorite pizza place and he's right it was soooo good! And for the two of us we got one slice and had to slice it in half due to the huge size! It's literally like they made a whole pizza and cut one huge triangle slice out of the pizza (I'll attach a photo). It was super affordable as the slice shown in the photo is only 3 dollars and half of that filled me up well! If pizza isn't your deal they do have other menu items More...

My wife and I supported Gilroy High School Athletics fundraiser by purchasing coupon books for $20. This included coupons for a free appetizer with the purchase of two entrees at Mama Mia's. The restaurant is clean and busy, with a muted burgundy ceiling and tasteful decor. The draft from the front doors wafting throughout the restaurant, however, means that everybody in the place has their coats on during colder months.  There's a bar area with tall tables to hang out while waiting for your table to open, though the host may not tell you about it when you walk in.The host was friendly and communicative. The 25-minute wait was almost exactly as long as predicted. My wife & I walked around the shopping plaza and caught Pokemon while we waited; there are a few other restaurants and shops to keep you entertained while you wait.We ordered Calamari Fritti for an appetizer. Lightly breaded, not over cooked, served with two sauces that were pretty good. Ate it up. It's served on a bed of leaves that are themselves quite strong; don't eat unless you like strong flavors!I ordered seafood cioppino. This hearty stew had massive quantities of different seafood in it, with very few noodles. It was spicy, warm on a cool December night, and tasted pretty good!My wife ordered lamb kabobs.  On advice of our server, it was cooked to a perfect Medium. Served on a bed of rice, the lamb was delicious and perfectly seasoned. However, some of the cuts were a little tough & gristly, but overall it was excellent.We are not drinkers, so I cannot rate the wine list. It appeared extensive.Mama Mia's is a restaurant with just a touch of class, a bit of a draft, slightly-upscale prices, attentive servers, and good food. Dinner for two for around $50-$75. More...

Went for lunch, seated outside-cute little area. We were brought warm bread right away with oil/balsamic/roasted garlic.  Ordered the Tabouleh appetizer-very fresh and delicious, almost as good as I got in a little family owned Greek restaurant in SF. Capellini  Fresca was delicious! Sauce was bright, spinach and basil fresh and lightly steamed. Stuffed rigatoni was also on point. Sauce was thinner than expected, but with the rich filling in the pasta it was perfect. Cannoli for dessert was good, but had full sized milk chocolate chips and I prefer traditional mini-chips of dark chocolate. Service was attentive without being intrusive. I will definitely go back!

But that was the only bad thing we had... don't waste your money.I have fried artichoke hearts (being in Gilroy there are two things you have to eat while here... Garlic and artichoke) they were excellent! I also had the Church's choice pizza that was a mix of 3 meats and mushrooms... The crust was crispy and chewy all at once... the sauce wasn't too heavy or sweet, and the blend of sausage, pepperoni, and salami with the mushrooms was divine!The place is not fancy, they have a pretty good bar, and there is a ton of parking!A good spot that delivered exactly what we wanted... descent pizza...

Great service, and good Italian food in a pleasant space.

The entrees were fine, the sausage was satisfying and the kid's cheese pizza was just right for our boy.

Dessert was not quite as good: the cheesecake was fine (though the crust was a little though and bland) but the creme brulee was very disappointing - the creme was thin and flavorless, the sugar on top was raw over most of the surface and burnt in one spot, not properly caramelized anywhere.

Established as oldest Italian restaurant in town which is a feat in a town that is tough on restaurants. Gilroy still has a small town mentality and feeling. People know each other and talk to each other. If aunt Martha’s neighbor had a bad meal at a place on Wednesday the whole damn town had heard about it by the weekend and 6 mos later they are shut down! Consistency is what the line most about this place. The food is always good albeit a bit predictable. The service is always professional and prompt. Wine list is honest. Corkage is reasonable. They do a great lasagna.... my wife’s favorite. I️ like a dish they discontinued a few years ago ... calamari fritti limone. I️ asked the waiter about it and he talked to the chef and whipped it up in the traditional style. Very nice. Pizzas are very good. A take out staple in our house. Excellent service, consistently good Italian food, pleasant surroundings. All in all a go to neighborhood restaurant that serves the local community well. More...

Because we arrived late we opted not to order an appetizer.I ordered spaghetti w/meatballs and meat sauce. Great choice, better than average portions.

Great food, great prices, and amazing customer service. After arriving at O'Hare International Airport late at night, I was looking for something to be delivered to my nearby hotel. I found Mama Mia's and the menu looked great. After my third-party delivery service completely dropped the ball, Tony went out of his way to make sure I got my food as quickly as possible and that I was satisfied. I particularly enjoyed the spaghetti with meat sauce, which arrived piping hot. It's refreshing to deal with a business that puts its customers first - especially when the food is just as great as the service. More...
