Everything at Mama Mia is made from scratch, including the sauces, mozzarella cheese, gelato, and desserts! If you love traditional, old-school Italian, this is the best choice in the city by far.

Mama Mia Trattoria offers a full menu of timeless Italian classics like Chicken & Eggplant Parmesan, Lasagna, Chicken & Veal Marsala, along with all your favorite pasta dishes.

As far as appetizers go, their homemade minestrone soup is amazing - it's a must try!

During our visit, they offered a fabulous 3 course special, which included an appetizer, entrée, and dessert. We tested out the Chicken Scallopine Piccata and the Pasta Pesto, both of which were amazing. We capped off our meal with the most delicious slice of cheesecake. As a bonus, they even make all desserts from scratch!

In keeping up with the Portland health conscious vibe, they offer gluten-free pasta for a few dollars more, and a variety of dishes can be made vegan or vegetarian.


Service was wonderful. Our waiter was very professional and attentive.


The setting is really elegant with 20 crystal chandeliers and 50 gilded mirrors throughout the luxurious dining room. This really is the perfect restaurant for celebrating any type of special occasion. The ambiance is very classy, although laid-back enough to avoid feeling stuffy.
