This blog does not give technical review
of restaurants we go to.

It merely chronicles the dining experience
of two Bacolenos working in Cebu -

Nyss who loves to write and

Geus who loves to take pictures.

Did we mention that we both love to eat?

FOOD:
Mamma Maria's Pizzeria originated from Bacolod City and even though we are also originally from Bacolod, the first time we tried to eat at this place is here in Cebu and we love the experience.

Mamma Maria's is famous for being the Home of the Biggest Pizza in the Philippines.  How big?  The pizza's diameter can be as big as 63 inches.  So how was the taste?  We can say that their pizzas are big in taste too.

We ordered Kebab Pizza.  Geus loved the taste and he loved the peperoncini topping.  If you love shawarma, you will also adore this pizza flavor.

Kebab Pizza Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella Cheese, White Garlic Sauce, Beef Tenderloin, "Spicy" Peperoncini

We also ordered Black and White Pizza.  I am not sure why they call this Black and White when the pizza came with yellow sauce.  The bearnaise sauce's flavor was strong but I love it.  It reminds me of mustard or curry but of course it was made from other spices like tarragon, pepper, and chervil leaves.  The manager of Mamma Maria's said that their sauce is imported from Sweden.

Black and White Tomato Sauce, Mpzzarella Cheese, Beef Tenderloin, Pork Tenderloin, Mushrooms, Bearnaise Sauce

Lastly, we ordered Bola-Bola (Meatballs) Spaghetti Pasta with meatballs (obviously) and tomato concaisse sauce.  "Concaisse" is normally spelled as "concasse" and it's one way of cooking tomatoes which is to crush or to grind them.  The spaghetti pasta tasted of real tomato and the best part is the generous amount of basil leaves that they mixed into the sauce so it really suited my taste.

Another good thing about Mamma Maria's is that bottled softdrinks cost only 15 pesos when restaurants nowadays price softdrinks from 30 pesos.  The just proves that this place is really affordable.

Mamma Maria's has 27 pizza flavors to choose from.  The flavors range from the usual meatlovers to the exotic pizza with crocodile meat.  They also offer 8 pasta dishes.

AMBIENCE/SERVICE:
Mamma Maria's is open 24 hours a day so you can order pizza and pasta anytime you want to.  The pizza dough is made as you order so you can be assured that your pizza is always freshly made.  You can actually see the baker as he prepares the pizza because their kitchen counter is located beside the cashier right where you can see it.

As an added bonus, the place offers free wi-fi so you can enjoy the pizza while surfing your favorite website.

The waitress assigned to our table was very polite and attentive.  When we asked her if we could take out nachos, she explained that it might become soggy when we reach home.  I think that is admirable and worth noting because Mamma Maria's is not just after increasing its sales, the people who handle it also want to make sure that the quality of their food remains good.

Black and White Pizza (Single) PHP 110.00

VERDICT:
Nyss  I will go back there until I have finished tasting all pizza flavors.  Since the price is really affordable, I would be able to do this without emptying out my pockets.
Geus - This is one of the best pizza I ever tried. I will surely be back.
