Thank you for visiting Mama’s Meatball, a casual, family-run restaurant. We serve home-style Italian cuisine, using only the finest and the freshest local ingredients at an affordable price. As far back as I can remember, my fondest childhood memories involved spending time in the kitchen with my mom in Italy. I used to spend hours watching her cook for friends and family. She was an incredible cook and I learned a lot from her. I used to tell everybody“nobody cooks like Mama!" With over 19 years of experience in the restaurant business cooking, catering and working directly under some of the most talented chefs in Italy, France, England, Florida, and Southern California, I decided to open up my first restaurant in San Luis Obispo. Now you get to taste some of Mama’s most delicious recipes!

Buon Appetito!
