Don't leave without trying the Panzerotti - the hottest seller - and basically a calzone with ham and cheese (or ask for the special of ricotta and spinach)

If you want to experience a piece of Italy, look no where else in San Diego than Mama Mia's - owned by local Italians, this Pacific Beach treasure was once a local secret and has since expanded to the area's favorite Italian destination. Upon entering you'll be greeted by a loud and boistorous crew of "fresh off the boat" Italians who loved food just as much as you do. Owned and operated by the husband and wife - the husband who will greet you with a warm Italian welcome while the wife works away in the kitchen - is just the local flavor Pacific Beach needs more of. From fresh pastas of ravioli, lasagna- a small corkage fee for bringing in your own bottle, salads and meat entrees, you'll never leave without a fresh feeling of Italy.
