Long time favourite you just need to be aware that for dining and delivery the wait for your food will be significant. Amazing calzone and panzerotti made from scratch with the finest ingredients.

I can't believe I didn't know about Mama Alfas sooner! We were seated quickly by the owner. A variety of Italian specialities are available. We opted for spaghetti and meatballs & rigatoni and meatballs~delish! The sauce was super fresh & pasta cooked to perfection! It's very difficult to find good meatballs~this place did not disappoint. The owner spent a lot... More

First visit to Thunder Bay. We were looking for good Italian and found it at Mamma Alfa's. Very pleasant environment with friendly people. Personalized care from Mamma herself. Everything is made fresh....just like at home. The wait was worth it. Sauce was tasty. Chicken was cut to bite size pieces in the cacciatore, but flavor was there. Overall, well worth... More

Made from imported ingredients and everything is made from scratch. The sauce is like sweet and savory with some spice to kick it up. 3 cheese blend and fresh ingredients. That's just the pizza. Panzorotti are yummo and baked not fried. Pasta is to die for. A must see restaurant. Muma Alfa herself gives excellent service

I have been to Mama Alfas several times to have dinner with friends and I had a family dinner for my husband's 65 birthday. The food is always good and the menu for the birthday dinner was plentiful and yummy. The Caesar salad is the best in town. Since it is a small restaurant with home made items, you do... More

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and was hoping for a stunning meal. It took awhile to find the place, because it is at the end of a small strip mall. It was a quiet Tuesday night - only two other tables, though several take away orders were picked up. We were in Italy this summer and was hoping for... More

Mama Alfa's is a small establishment where the husband and wife run the show. The pizzas are made from scratch by Mama herself. Don't expect to be in and out. It takes a bit to get your food as Mama makes everything. The pizza was fantastic. If you want freshly made pasta you need to order it the day before... More

After reading all the reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to try Mama Alfa's. We ordered a large pizza & a salad for pickup. The restaurant itself is small, clean, & clearly family run (which is always nice to see). The food was very good. Everything was homemade with love. However I took a bite of a slice of pizza and...

The food was absolutely delicious, I live nearby, and I am sad it took me so long to finally go! Be prepared to spend some time, good things come to those who wait.
