In 1971, a one-window pizza shop was the beginning of a new life for Anna and Guido, a poor Italian immigrant couple and their four children. Forty-nine years later, Mama Mia’s 44 SW continues to be a home and dinner table for all who walk in. Pre-dating the modernized Time Square, Anna and Guido Schiattarella acquired Mama Mia's in what was then Hell’s Kitchen.

 

"Perfect outdoor setup for Covid. Cafe tables under a roof with the front entirely open, with more than adequate heat lamps for a 35F degree evening. Service was even warmer than the heat lamps, and food was hearty and plentiful. Highly recommend for anyone visiting/living near Hell's Kitchen."

- Lory Latore, Mama Mia Customer
