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.

I also complained to the staff member who told me the chef does notread 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 backread 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 hadread more
