This is Real Pizza! This is the food we've been looking for since we moved down here. Excellent service, fantastic atmosphere, and tremendous food. We will be returning as often as possible!
Incredible cheese pizza!! Absolutely love their fries. The fettuccine Alfredo is pretty damn good too.
Thanks, Alex! For making the experience and food a good one.
This was the first time I've visited Mama's Pizza & Pasta and I really wanted pizza that night. The server, Anya, was prompt and polite and gave me some recommendations. The menu looked really good, but I decided on a veggie pizza. Because of health issues I asked if I could have it made with less cheese. I was told absolutely! I ordered a glass of Pino Grigio to go with me meal.
While waiting I took in the ambience. Linen table cloths? Mmm.. might be too upscale for me? Actually it was a nice touch. The restaurant was very clean.
My veggie pizza was served and it was delicious. The wine went well with the pizza.
Turns out that Anya and her husband Alex are the owners and they came over to my table and I asked them why the pizza was so good and why was it different from other pizza restaurants in Charlotte. Alex explained to me that they go out of their way to get better ingredients. Even though costs have gone up, they still don't skimp on the quality of the ingredients they use to prepare their food.
I'd highly recommend this place who are looking for great pizza and a great restaurant to eat it in.
Awesome! And I'll be back next time I'm in town!
OMG!!!Best pizza ever!, Every slice is dripping with cheese and the crust is perfect! The lasagna is hand made by Alex himself. You can savor every flavor. My husband is not a fan of ricotta cheese but that changed today! Alex is an amazing owner. He and his wife are kind and hospitable. The atmosphere is awesome!! Thank you for bringing Manhattan to Matthews!!
I found out that this place is under new ownership. Everything is delicious - fresh ingredients - new menu - pizza is absolutely wonderful. Also had the baked ziti and you get more than enough for one meal. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant with the new owners. You should try it!!!!
The owner and staff are great, the meals were as good as eating at high end restaurants downtown. Sopranos pictures are a nice touch. Going back tomorrow.
Good New York style pizza is hard to come by. Not only was it the best pizza I've had in the South, but they offered pizza by the slice! I got 2 slices and a drink. My only regret is bringing it home to eat. If I would have ate it there, I would have gotten more to bring home for later! As an Italian from NY who knows his pizza, this is the place to get the best slice! Looking forward to my next visit!
Great pizza and Stromboli's here! Love this place. Very friendly and quality food!
Best pizza ever and crust. Alfredo sauce, cheese and shrimp. 2nd pizza - red sauce, meat balls, Italian Sausage, ham. Will definitely highly recommend.
The best pizza outside New York. The eggplant parm. is delicious as well.
I can't say enough good things about Mama's. With the new ownership, it feels like walking in to eat with your family. Best wings in town, the BEST penne a la vodka I've ever had, and the Tiramisu is what dreams are made of. Do yourself a favor and stop in, it truly is a local gem.
First Time in Mama's Pizza & Pasta saw the reviews online and had to go try it out. Alex the owner was super nice as soon as we walked in the door, Had excellent service from him and his team and Amazing Food. Ended up getting the Mama's Feast that was amazing! Would definitely refer anyone to go try it and will definitely be back in the future.
I walked in for the first time not knowing that it's under new management, and I was greeted by new owners, Anya and Alex! Very nice people! I've never been to this place before, and I thought about giving it a shot. But after my first visit, I'll definitely come back! Food is reeaaaallly good!
In one word, wow! Excellent place to grab a quick lunch or enjoy a date with the wife. We enjoyed a mushroom pizza and the company. We have uncovered a new jam in our area, glad we did.
Spoke with the new owner while waiting for our order. The new owner - Knows his stuff. Making smart changes to the business. Most important of all. It was some of the best pizza I've had in Charlotte to date. Not to mention an on point price point. I live about 25min away but literally worth the drive. I'll see you next time my family wants pizza.
What can I say about mamas? I wish that I could give it more than 5 stars. From something as easy as a pizza to a perfectly made chicken parmigiana dinner, they hit a home run. Fresh made garlic knots.... The newly renovated space creating a nice ambiance is a great touch. The new owners Alex and Anya treat you like family and that alone would keep anyone coming back for more. 10/10 fully recommended!
We also placed an online order on 12/26 not realizing the restaurant was closed for the holiday weekend. After speaking with the owner today, he informed me a refund was issued when he opened the restaurant today. There had been an issue with the online order function not turning off, of which he was unaware. He treated my family to our order tonight and everything was awesome. Mistakes happen, and we will gladly continue to support this establishment.
