Mamma’s got a new sister in south Roanoke — the second Mamma Maria’s location opened Tuesday at Piccadilly Square on Franklin Road.
The original Mamma Maria’s has been going strong in west Salem for many years. The family also owns Mamma’s Pizza at Lakeside Plaza in Salem.
The new location is in the space that formerly housed SoRo Chill & Grille. Mamma’s owner Dominic Marletta said interior renovations included removing a large bar and replacing it with a smaller one, as well as cleaning and giving the dining rooms a new paint job.
The menu at the south Roanoke location is nearly identical to the Salem one. In addition to the full menu, the Roanoke location will offer a buffet Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. ($7.49 per person) and Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m. ($8.49). They will also have a Sunday brunch from noon to 3 p.m. (price to be determined).
If you visit the Roanoke location soon, please remember that they *just* opened and may still be working out the kinks.
