Mamma Melina Reviews List

Mamma Melina

The Seattle Times, August 26th 2010: So thoroughly have the three Varchetta brothers re-imagined the relocated Mamma Melina their own mother would hardly recognize the place even though that's her name above the door.
The new Mamma Melina, occupying the south end of the Corydon Apartments near University Village, has more in common with the Varchetta's stylish Barolo downtown.
On a summer day you'd think it was Rodeo Drive and not the Burke-Gilman Trail that runs alongside the broad front patio. Amid shallow pools holding silver globes that glint in the sun, beautiful people in oversized sunglasses sip wine on thickly cushioned sofas or sup on house-made pasta under canvas umbrellas at white-clothed tables.Price points are moderate and the cooking is assured.

"We enjoy this cozy restaurant that always has a buzz, and were delighted to have new entrees from the fresh list. Colossal prawns were offered with fresh crab in a divine lemon sauce, served on a bed of risotto. It was a delicate dish, full of subtle flavors, and topped with fresh Parmesan cheese. We split the yummy flourless chocolate cake, and it just melted in our mouths."

"I selected this place because I saw they had free parking. To my surprise, the ambiance was super and the menu was delicious. Service was quite lovely; and I will definitely recommend this restaurant when dining in the University District. The beet salad was a favorite."

"Loved the seafood, the lamb Ossobuco was amazing, and the calzone was hugh! Salads are good and plentiful, too. Great work in the kitchen! Nice presentations and hot food! We come regularly."

"We and our guests enjoyed a fine meal with attentive service and food we liked. I do have to mention that the veal scallopinie was once again too salty for my taste but another diner with us didn't feel the same."
