Mamma Martino's ...Huh?
Decided to join my sister and brother-in-law at Mamma Martino's (Queensway Location) for dinner. (Went once 7 years ago -- wasn't impressed ... prefer Rocco's)
Luckily, we managed to be seated before the deluge of the dinner crowd. By 6:30 pm, there is a line up right to around the corner.
We shared a pizza -- it was thin crust and ...... utterly tasteless.
I went for the old stand-by -- Spaghetti & Meatballs, my co-horts went for Lasagna.
Let's just say my entree was "S&M" to say the least. It was totally un-edible. The sauce was bland and runny. The meatballs tasted like cardboard -- more stuffing than meat. The pasta was dry, floury and powdery. I could have a better plate of spaghetti & meatballs at a Kelsey's!
1. It was cheap
2. Doggy-bagged it and put it in a soup broth at home (which made it edible, think of a can of Campbells soup)
My big question ... Why do people line-up for this "STUFF" ??????
Have to agree. I drive by this place twice a day and in the evening, the cars lining up to get in is phenomenal. A friend of ours knows the owner, and we took them to Rocco's one day and all he did was talk about MM and the great guy that owns the place. We asked a whole lot of times if he liked the food, and all we got was how great the owner is, Bruno. So, perhaps the appeal is not the food, but because they may know the owner? LOL. I will sometimes stop and get the caesar salad, but really, nothing else. I would much rather pay my money at Rocco's or even Thyme 4 than at MM.
