Had lunch here today and I was impressed! The restaurant itself was clean and tidy, the staff were friendly, helpful and competent and the food was delicious! Had the spag. cab. and it was probably one of the best I have had in Melbourne, huge portion size, very well cooked and presented and packed full of flavor. Will definitely be eating here again.

I am a very placid and easygoing person but I visited this restaurant today for lunch with my two daughters. More staff than you could poke a stick at but it took 10 mins to take an order then just short of an hour to serve meals. Then countless staff walked past our table yet anyone order a bottle of wine and the service was super fast. The meals were alright but nothing to ...read more

I see a few negative remarks about this venue. Put simply, my reaction is why I stopped going. If my service is extremely slow, if they double charge and then refuse to pay me back that extra... then good bye for ever.

Was very disappointed in the "seafood platter' - on the plate were 4 mussels - 5 prawns and a few rings of calamari - salad and chips - quite expensive I thought at nearly $28.00. My scallop terrine was tasty as always though!!

Very poor service. After waiting for some time, I had to call the wait staff over so we could order. I ordered grilled tomatoes on toast and was given plain toast with a side order of one tiny tomato cut in half. I expressed my disappointment and the reply..."that's how the chef does it here". I also complained to the staff member who told me the chef does not ...read more

After reading some of the other reviews i can see that im not alone in the dissapointment i experienced at Mamma Linas. We found some staff very rude and abrupt, it was as though it was an effort to serve us. We then waited over 40 min for our entree and a further 40 min for our mains along with drinks which were ordered with our entree. We had hoped the ...read more

Sadly I have to agree with the previous customer. My boyfriend and I went to mamma Linas for breakfast on Sunday OMG what a disaster. I really don't think anyone new what was going on that day but it was a shambles. After waiting 25 minutes for service, coffees took a further 20 minutes and food took over an hour. I was disgusted and will not be going back ...read more

My recent visit to Mamma Linas was dissapointing to say the least. After waiting over 45 minutes for 2 serves of garlic bread, we waited another hour for our mains. My wife had the homemade gnocci with napoli which was mor like little golf balls swimming in tomato soup, my 4 year old son had a kids spag bol which was bigger in size than my wifes main. I had ...read more
