We took my son and his family for pizza figuring that would be easiest as there were kids with is. We ordered two large pizzas, one traditional crust and one deep dish. Each pizza is priced as a cheese pizza and then each item adds to the cost. There were 6 of us and 2 medium would have been more... More

Are you ready for a New York-style 'slice' bigger than the average 'personal pizza'? One bite and you're back in 'the old neighborhood' - if your old neighborhood was around Sheepshead Bay or Howard Beach. Thin crust, hand-seasoned tomato sauce and plenty of cheese, with all the toppings you remember (and some you might lift an eyebrow at); big antipasto... More

Friday, 12/18 @ 11:30 AM Confusing to newbies. You enter, follow signs, and if nobody greets you, you stand there wondering what to do; seat yourself and wait or order at the register? I asked the pizza makers what to do, she said she'd get someone. We ordered a 16" Special. Soft drinks refills are free (ask); seasonings are at... More

This has become our favorite place to go for pizza, far superior to any of the chain pizzas ie Pizza Hut, Dominoes, etc. The pizza has a very good taste flavored with plenty of cheese and Italian spices. Last night the restaurant was very busy but that did not change the quality or speed of picking it up for our... More

Went there with some indecisive coworkers who let me choose the restaurant. I always choose Italian so we went here. We walked in and ordered and it was delicious. The portions are huge and the price was reasonable (for what you got). A large calzone can easily be shared between 2 or 3 people, the portions are that big. I... More

Thank you "Oopso" for your review. We listen to all the feedback we receive and make it a goal to improve constantly. Maybe the decor can be looked at as "interestingly nostalgic"?. Everything comes around again....doesn't it? More

Great locale with family theme including gaming for kids; slices are huge and fresh ingredients make the pie almost New York!! Ate on patio by fountain and enjoyed Mt Lemmon view while loving my pizza, highly recommended by local business and glad he shared this one!!

We were staying at the Starr Pass Marriott and decided to head into Tucson for dinner one night. After reading other TripAdvisor reviews we narrowed it down to Mexican (go figure) or pizza - pizza won and so did the choice of Mama's. The pizza was really good, too! You can choose between deep dish or regular style - lots... More

We stayed at a hotel just down the street from this place and decided to order a pizza togo. We walked in and were guided through the menu by the guy at the counter.

Nice place in the evenings and weekends. It has a certain appeal. The food was average at best and the pricing was higher than the quality of the food.
