Best Pizza outside of the Big Apple 12/14/2007

If you want true New york style pizza in southern California, Mammalucco's is the only place to eat. Everything at Mammalucco's is true to New York style pizza. The closet to NY style outside of the big Apple. I have eaten at many so called NY style pizza places and nothing compares to Mammalucc's. If you are looking for a taste of NY and do not want to travel to the big apple Mammalucco's the spot. Order up two slices of pepperoni and you will like your in the city of Manhatten. Even Boston fans will agree NY is the best for pizza. Enjoy more

I AM HOOKED! 11/21/2007

Ever since I tried their New York style pizza, I have been hooked! I have been going back at least once, sometimes twice, a week. You are always greeted warmly when you come in and the service is always good. But it is not just the pizza, everything is good and made of the highest quality ingredients. Give Mammalucco's a try, you will be glad you did! Pros: Best New York pizza in Orange County more

Mammalucco's is the real deal! 11/13/2007

Since discovering Mammalucco's earlier this year, there isn't a week that goes by that we don't either eat there or take home food. The pizza is the best pizza we have had in twenty years of living on the West Coast, we are ex-New Yorkers and Mammalucco's has satisfied our craving for GOOD New York Pizza. We can't seem to get enough of it, we have loved everything that we have tried. The service is great and John, the owner, makes you feel right at home. We highly recommend Mammalucco's it really is the real deal!\r Pros: Best New York Pizza Anywhere more

Best pizza outside of New York 10/27/2007

Since moving to the west coast 40 years ago, I've never been able to find the same taste in pizza as I had in New York when I was in high school, until I tried Mammalucco's. When I bit into their cheese pizza, old time memories of this one-of-a kind taste came back. Find out what a real authentic New York pizza tastes like at Mammalucco's. more

The last pizza you'll ever eat... 10/17/2007

I have been a paisan stuck in california all my i have never had the chance to taste real brooklyn pizza...but i have had pizza all over cali and i will say that mamalucco's is a slice above the rest...all it takes is one trip to mamalucco's and you'll be hooked...just as i me...walk in, say ""how ya doin"" to john and ""gimme a slice of cheese""...sit down in the small but well decorated dining room and enjoy...remember not to sit too far from the counter at lunch, because you will be going back for a second and third slice. i only wish i lived in the area so i could visit more office is in brea and mamalucco's is our lunch destination at least twice a week. speaking of lunch...if you visit during lunch and the ""vinnie no neck"" is on display...order it. Pros: best pizza in all of cali Cons: i wish there were more mamalucco's more

Mamma Mia, what can I tell you, finding Mammalucco""s was like a dream come true for me. I'm from Brooklyn, N.Y. and I'm Italian.

My husband is from Brooklyn and for many years he has tried to find Brooklyn style pizza. For his recent birthday I went on an exhausted search for ""Brooklyn pizza"". To our families delight we found John and his outstanding restaruant Mammalucco's. Know matter where you are from or what ancestory you have, if you like italian food, this will be number one on your list of ""OUTSTANDING"" restaurants. Pricing is reasonable so you can feed an entire family and not break the budget. We have become so excited about the food and the owner, who is completely hands on, that we have told everyone we can so they can enjoy the experience also. By making the choice to take your friends and family to Mammalucco's you will be commended by all.\r You will get the feeling of walking into someone's home.

Great Food; Friendly Service; Easy on the Walet and FUN!!! 3/31/2007

I agree with the many people who say the food is authentic N.Y. style, but the place also has a comfortable neighborhood feel and a romance all its own. My favorite slices are the cheese(of course) and their stuffed version called ""Vinnie No Neck""!! Its great for the family or a romantic first date (watch that the owner doesn't steal your girlfriend!)\r So if you cry when you hear ""New York, New York"" or your looking for a place to take Lindsey Lohan, ya gona luv da place!\r P.S. Top Secret; Vino is half-price on Wednesday! more

Best pizza in Southen California! 3/12/2007

Take it from me, an Italian guy from Da Bronx, NY, this is the only place in Orange County, Californai to eat pizza. The pizza everwhere else in the OC pales greatly in comparison. \r All of the other Italian food served at Mammalucco's is also excellent, better than any Italian restaurant in the area. The food tastes excellent and is authentically Italian. The meatballs at Mammalucco's are the best any any restaurant, even NYC. I must state that because meatball are very important!!\r The restaurant has the feel of a true Italian pizza retaurant of NYC and the people who own and work at Mammalucco's are geniunely warm and friendly. Pros: Great food and service, NYC Italian pizza restaurant ambience, plenty of parking more

East Coast Pizza on the West Coast 2/21/2007

Mammalucco's knows how to make a great pizza and that is start with the perfect foundation the dough. add a nice, but not over powering tomato sauce, then add great mozzarella cheese. Bake it to perfection to get the greatest crust this side of the Mississippi and you have the greateast pizza in California and I dare say the entire west coast. The perfect topping for me is the Italain Sausage.\r \r Other great items in the restaurant are the Eggplant; Meatballs and the assortment of Italian deserts. Mammalucco's is a down to earth place to eat that makes you feel as if you are dinning at Uncle Vito's with Aunt Angelina turning out her home made specialties. If you are looking for great food at reasonable prices in a casual authenic environment, then Mammalucco's is for you!\r \r If I good rate it an 11, I would. Pros: Food more

Fantastic pizza, great restaurant. 2/20/2007

Most authentic East Coast pizza around, period. The crust is perfect, the sauce is fresh and flavorful and the cheese nice & stringy. The gourmet vegitarian is the best veggie pizza I have ever had, anywhere. The service is always friendly and the staff is fantastic. The pasta is also very fresh and tastes the closest to home made that I have found locally. They also have really good lunch specials. Best of all, it feels like a local family run restaurant, probably because that is what it really is. more

Good food all the time 2/20/2007

Best East Coast NY pizza in CA 2/20/2007

I consider myself a pizza connoisseur from the east coast (Philly) and had given up on California pizza until I stopped by Mammaluccos. I had a cheese slice and everything was right....the crust....the sauce...and especially the cheese (the lasagna, chicken marsala, etc. are also exceptional). Mammaluccos also has a special ambiance with the New York Italian family pictures and Italian sports/entertainer memorabilia. Together, these make me feel like I'm back at the old scool east coast pizzeria in Philly. I've recommended Mammaluccos to all my east coast friends. Pros: Large parking lot, outdoor patio Cons: Not easy to see from Imperial Hwy. (behind the Burger king and trees) more
