Nothing special. Pizza was too small for the price. Had to get cash from the ATM which charged an excessive fee. Place was too cramped.

Mam Palma's Review 8/10/2011

Very comfy and relaxing ambiance. Nice and friendly staff. Good food. more

The best quality food 5/11/2011

Nothing like Mama Palma's Pizza. Everytime I go there I get the best quality food, great and friendly services and it's very affordable as well... Let alone the freebies (more often than not, the owner sends a polenta bread, or other times a dessert) and if you are lucky that night you might get both! Never had a bad experience and everytime I bring friends they are treated like family. Thank you! more

Delicious 5/10/2011

Great variety of pizzas and decently priced. You could easily split a med pizza between two people. The polenta bread pizza appetizer thing IS delicious. It was my favorite thing. more

Worth every cent 5/6/2011

Easy the best pizza in the area. Bit pricey, but worth every cent. more

Plenty to choose from 5/4/2011

Find your favorite at Mama Palmas and there are plenty to choose from. The mozarella w/ prosciutto and pistachio is to die for. Its a great BYOB, crispy crust inventive pizzas more

Makes my mouth water 5/2/2011

Mama Palma's makes my mouth water....and I'm not even a big fan of Italian food. The polenta dish is simply amazing & the pizza is to die for! The service is beyond friendly & this place is totally kid friendly. Oh, and it's BYOB to boot! I always look forward to stopping by when I'm in the city. more

Good pizza and salad 4/27/2011

Good pizza, love there aragula salad. more

Good inexpensive place to eat 4/21/2011

This is a good inexpensive option for dinner in center city. It's an easy walk to Rittenhouse, and the menu lends itself to sharing with your dining companions. Even the salads are large enough for 2. more

Nice family restaurant 4/19/2011

Good pizza, nice family restaurant. There has not been a pizza I haven't liked here. more

Delicious food 4/14/2011

Family-run pizza place 4/12/2011

Excellent Pizza 4/8/2011

Great service, amazing pizza, nice selection of beer- I just wish they delivered. The whole wheat pies are to die for! I'll be back again and again. more

Quite the variety 4/7/2011

Large pizza's with a wide variety of toppings. Cash only. more

LOVE Mama Palma's 4/4/2011

My husband and I LOVE Mama Palma's. We were both big fans of Mama Palma's while in grad school at Wharton and Penn. We both knew the owner before we knew each other and when we walked in on our second date, we got such a warm welcome! The owner is amazing and does everything to make your experience the best it can be. The pizza is original and sooo delicious... be sure and try the polenta bread too. It is hands down the best pizza in Center City Philadelphia! more

Best Pizza Ever 4/1/2011

Make sure you go to Mama Palma's at 23rd & Spruce st. when you are in Philadelphia. This family owned and operated has the best thin crust pizza I ever tasted. Don't forget to order the Polenta Bread as an appetizer. Great selection of Salads, pastas and other main plates. My son loves the Chicken Parm. So big, I have no idea how he finishes it! Great selection of beers to, but if you are a wine drinker - byob! Another great reason to love Philly! more

No better pizza 3/30/2011

If you're looking for neighborhood Pizza and other Italian, this is the place. There's no better Pizza in Center City. more

Love the selection 3/29/2011

Love the selection of pizza here. Love the BYOB component. Think this is a great place for friends to eat, drink, and be merry! more

Excellent Service 3/28/2011

Not since being in the south have I heen treated with such excellent service and care. These guys know how to run a food business! more

Great 3/24/2011

These are very good pizzas. I'm a very conservative rater. The service is OK but not overly fast or attentive, but they don't forget about you and the room is small enough that you can get them when you need them. the Owner, however, is very attentive to quality and will correct or adjust anything that's not just right. Nice place for kids but a little noisy--but hey, it's a pizza restaurant!!! Great for a relaxed meal with the kids. more

So Good! 3/21/2011

I went here for lunch with a friend. We were greeted right away by the friendliest hostess ever. We both ordered small pizzas and shared them. The caramelized onion/prosciutto pizza was fantastic. The sauce/onions were amazing. I'd order it again. The spinach/goat cheese pizza was super good as well! There are so many neat pizza combinations that I want to try. There is a peking duck pizza, a sante fe pizza, and a bbq chicken pizza. Basically, this place is like California Pizza Kitchen except it's not a chain, the pizza tastes fresh, and the waiters aren't wearing stupid shirts. Our waiter was a scenester looking guy who was sort of quiet but super on point. Water was refilled. We were happy. Everything was great. I'll go there's down the street. Cash only, but they have an ATM. They have BYOB wine, and some beer (Magic hat #9 is there), and they have an espresso machine. All in all, a really good place for pizza. more
