Pease note that Mamma L's is a local place. LOCAL.
And this is very much about food. FOOD.
I tried Mamma Lucia's carry-out pizza last Tuesday- they have a special where it's buy one pizza, get the 2nd for $1. Large only (16 in. across!) and carry-out only
So I bit. And while moneywise it's a bargain, I remember past raves on this very own board about how wonderful this pizza was.
But the pizza wasn't!
It tasted pasty, doughy. Maybe because of a fast turnover - it's very busy Tuesday nights. I felt bloated - and not in a good way - after 2 slices. I refrigerated the rest, and it didn't taste any better the next day, re-heated.
Pizza at Pizza Paradisa tastes better than this! Even the pie they used to make at Il Forno - which has had a big change of management (quality has slid - they now also serve Indian food !?) - tasted better.
