Not your franchise kinda pizza. Mater's is a locally owned and operated pizza and pasta restaurant in downtown Gadsden, Alabama. We love the cozy wandering old rooms seating only about 25 folks each. The pasta dishes are wonderful, but the Sycilian deep dish pizza's make...More

If you like average pizza, this is not the place for you. My husband and I always get a large so we can have leftovers. We ordered a half and half Better Girl and Aloha since we both wanted something different. The salad was simple...More

The food was great, but the service was terrible. The appetizer came out with the pizza, and it was a long wait with only 2-3 other tables occupied. Our server didn't come back to check on us, and we had to ask for drink refills....More

Had dinner there lastnight and the food was terrible. They brought our dinners out at separate times, we actually didn't even finish our meal. Maybe we just caught it on a bad night but we won't be back.

Found this on our GPS. Off I75 it was about 4 miles. Atmosphere stepping in door was easy going and laid back quickly seated with drinks at the ready. Took a little long for our food. Worth the wait!
