You will not find a larger slice of pizza anywhere in Tucson. So if big is your thing then you'll love the slices @ Mama's. It's not the best,but it will satisfy your pizza craving.

We came to Mama's for lunch. We found the staff were very friendly. We only ordered pizza slices, as we knew from past experience how big the slices were. Good taste, hot, good prices, very casual environment.

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...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...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?
