Mama's Meatball

Located at 570 Higuera Street in SLO, this completely authentic Italian restaurant is a wonderful surprise. Don’t let the name deceive you: this is hand-crafted, sophisticated Italian fare with appetizers like artichoke bruschetta, carpaccio, and steamed mussels. Hearty ravioli, baked lasagna and creamy Alfredo dishes share space with gnocchi de zucca, linguini al pesto, fresh fish and chicken dishes—all prepared in the authentic Italian style by Chef Nicola Allegretta. Delectable house-made pizzas, salads, and desserts make the menu a delight to peruse, and the warm service brings patrons back often.
