I was here on Thursday 4/15/21 around 7PM. I found a white substance on the bottom of my water cup--looked like a bug(maggot). Not cool! A younger Mexican guy served me the water. They need to be more careful about who they hire. The salad was good but the slice of pizza was a bit burned. I don't think I'll be returning anytime soon. It's a shame because the dining room atmosphere is the best in Tucson. Finally, I don't like leaving 1-star reviews.

I am very disappointed. I ordered a gluten free pizza with tomatoes, basil, and chicken. I was on a zoom call so I can't speak to the actual wait time, but it seemed like a bit. Now the pizza, I paid $22 and the basil was wilted beyond recognition, the tomatoes were either too ripe or simply overdone, and the chicken was dry. On top of that there was little cheese and barely any sauce. The underside of the crust was cooked ; however, the top and middle portions were still doughy. Ended up scraping some of cheese and toppings off and eating just that. Rest ended up in trash.

this place used to be great. something is just not right lately. i hope that the owners are willing to take a good look at management and the cooks. we were there a few weeks ago. not the best. i think its time for some clean up and maybe a remodel of some type. hoping Mama's will be great again.

I only gave this place three stars because when you walk in it is so outdated it's so dark inside there's no atmosphere it's kind of spooky how dark and dingy it is inside these places. It doesn't really inspire me that the kitchen is any better. I walked up to order and the girl was kind of like impatient with us cuz I hadn't been there in forever so I wasn't sure how to order. So I kind of live was taking my time looking over the menu but she offered no help so I decided to order a pizza and a salad. There were hardly any other customers there so the food came out pretty quick. You do need a code to go into the bathroom so you need to ask somebody but I asked one person and they gave me a code but they weren't sure so they had to ask another person that gave her a different code which was weird. So then I just randomly asked the different employee what the code was and he gave me a different code which happened to be the correct code so that was kind of confusing. We finally got our food and I can't say anything bad about the food the salad was you know just a garden salad nothing fancier special something I could throw together at home. The pizza wasn't bad it was pretty good I know you can order by the slice but we ended up getting a small pizza which kind of came out more expensive than buying one of those gigantic slices so you really have to look over the menu so you get the best deal. as far as cleanliness it look pretty clean but again they don't have a lot of customers so I can't imagine it getting dirty or it being hard to keep clean. Will I go back here probably not I just didn't get a good vibe from it that I liked being there. Maybe take out possibly.it seems like at one point they did do a whole lot of business because they have a large outdoor patio seating area which might be better to be out in the open instead of inside in the dark and dingy dungeon that they have there. They had a fountain that wasn't working or turned on.

Absolutely delicious!! The baked zita with fried eggplant is on point! The delivery service was amazing. The driver walked in to meet me in the lobby because she didn't want me to get cold outside. They sent plates, forks, and napkins. I will definitely order again on my next visit.

I have been coming to mamas for longer than I can remember 15 years or so I know many of the staff like Erin Sam and have met the owners son and daughter on multiple occasions I was disappointed when Tristan left and lane they did a great job especially making my pizzas crispy like they used to be in the past now the pizzas have changed ingredients slightly over the years but I don't like how soggy the pizzas are now. I come to this location usually twice a month. I could tell Erin made the staff morale bad and I had my issue with her before over the years. But by far the best employee is sam she is extremely polite and hard working cannot commend her enough you rarely get employees like her. I would love to give this place 5 stars but they need to address the soggy/oily not crispy pizza. my last 3 pizzas were delivered cold I think they kept the ranch and canole on the pizza or under it.

Love this place. I’ve been coming here since I was 15 years old. Now I being my hubby and 10 year old son.

The food was decent but what really turned me off of this restaurant was the customer service or lack thereof. My fiance ordered online. We were getting updates on the status of our order but when we arrived the updates stopped. When my fiance called to see if our food was ready, he asked for the status of our order. The woman on the other end very rudely asked, "What do you want to know?" Obviously if our food is ready? Whoever this woman is really needs to work on her customer service!

Great sandwiches but the atmosphere is cold and don't let all the TVs fool you. This is NOT a sports bar! Went there to watch the NFC Championship game and they didn't know how to find Fox for the game. Then they couldn't turn down or off the music and a little later we were told other customers complained about the volume of the game so they turned it down so we really couldn't hear the broadcasters. Why do they have all those tvs?? So disappointed.

My family decided to give this place a try, we saw it on fb post from a friend. They have both indoor and outdoor seating available and the outdoor seating does have heaters for the evening.We ordered the Mama's special pizza and a cheese pizza. Also ordered BBQ wings, NY Buffalo wings and chocolate shipped cannolis.The Mama's special is a meat lovers dream in the fact that it has a lot of meat, pepperoni, ham, meatballs, sausage and bacon. The biggest draw back was the crust. The crust only comes one way and it was dry and too crunchy for our liking. The cheese pizza had the same issue with the crust. Other than being covered in meat or cheese, the sauce didn't have much flavor.The wings were good and cooked perfectly. They had wonderful flavor.The cannolis were okay. They were filed fresh, so the shell was crunchy, which is great. But the cream lacked the flavor were used to getting at other places.The staff was very friendly and the place was clean with a comfortable atmosphere.This place is little on the expensive side but not too bad, our order cost $77 before tip.May try this place again.

The restaurant is gorgeous. They have a beautiful courtyard in the front and the fountain surrounded by the seating is very enjoyable. The chicken parm sandwich wasnt bad either.

Mama Mia, both our gluten free and metropolitan crust came out doughy and underbaked. The sauce was alright, the cheese okay, and the toppings were tasty enough. My Italian Cream Soda was nostalgically delicious, but a bit too heavy on the syrupy side to be a perfect experience. The store was clean, the atmosphere oh so cozy, and I'd likely eat here again next time I need pizza enough to feed my whole household of various allergies and dietary restrictions. A satisfactory pizza experience with potential to rival the best~

Food is amazing! Quality ingredients for sure. Dine in still available.staff is friendly. It may feel a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Worth it! Been coming here for over a decade.
