This place is one of the better places in Des Moines to get pizza. Their unique atmosphere and amazing choices makes this a must stop for anyone. The stuffed meatballs are to die for and I have not had one bad meal here. This place is somewhere you could spent a good amount of time with friends on a week or weekend night. 100% recommend. Bumped it to a 5 star rating because this place is superb!

Great locally owned restaurant! The cheese-filled meatballs were delicious, salads fresh and crispy, and pasta sauce homemade with just the right amount of spices! Next time we'll try the pizza - it looked so good! A new favorite place! (Not much seating, but the wait time wasn't bad.)

This was great place. Caution! If you get the stuffed meatballs they are amazing but very filling. The pizza was good. A tad greasy but because of all the meaty toppings. Husband had the half and half gnocchi and it was good too!!

It all started in 1973

The original Mamma Mia’s was founded by Robert Sr. And Trudy Bordenaro in southern Indiana in 1973.  45 years later, we’re keeping tradition alive by serving all of the original family recipes with an updated twist.  Serving up New York style slices at lunch and presenting a full service menu at dinner, including signature pizzas, sandwiches, appetizers, salads, pasta and desserts.  We make everything in house, including our OWN Italian sausage, and freshly shredded Grande brand hormone-free cheese.  Gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options are available.  We hope to see you soon!  Ciao!       ✌🏼🍕
