ON THE MENU
Tortellini Pavarotti, Penne My Way, Osso Bucco, Veal Bruschetta… are just a few of the gourmet entrees on the menu at the one and only, original Mama Mia’s. And yes, the tortellini was prepared for the famous tenor at his request. Chef Joe Massaglia opened his ristorante in Seaville in 1988, after a successful career at renowned regional restaurants (when he prepared the Penne My Way for Frank Sinatra). If you’re lucky enough to sit with Joe for a chat, you’ll realize he’s the real deal. Joe’s from Italy and began his culinary journey over 50 years ago at a five-star hotel in his home country. Mama Mia’s offers fine dining with recipes they’ve used for over 30 years, starting with Joe’s mom… Mama Bertina. That’s her picture you see on the wall, teaching the kids how to make pasta. Sit down in the warm dining room with a glass of wine… you’ll be glad you did even before you begin eating. The vibe is friendly, warm, and happy.
Mama Mia also serves a large variety of gourmet pizzas, flatbreads, calzones, stromboli, sandwiches (hot and cold), wraps, salads, burgers, fries, pastas (try the baked ziti bolognese), and other fine Italian fare like chicken marsala, eggplant parmigiana, calamari puttanesca. Hungry yet? Mama Mia’s delivers anywhere on the island. Favoloso!
Chef Joe’s philosophy that good, genuine food priced fairly with friendly service always creates a pleasurable dining experience has made Mama Mia’s a favorite since 1988.
