Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano

Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano is a great choice when visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park. Italian food just like mama makes is available in this excellent Disney restaurant with a homely atmosphere. Pictures of celebrities who have visited Mama Melrose over the years are all over the walls. Your children may be hard pressed to recognize many of them but the decor all adds to the great atmosphere in this high energy place.

As with all Disney restaurants the theming and attention to detail is excellent. As you are guided to your table you will walk past the very busy open kitchen. Lots of hustle and bustle and if the smell from the wood burning oven doesn’t make you hungry then the great selection of Italian food on the menu certainly will. The walls are bare brick, the seating in comfortable surroundings with vines and string lights overhead.

When we went to Mama Melrose a couple of weeks ago they were particularly good with our special dietary needs. We have gluten free, vegetarians and vegans in our party so have a lot of specific requirements! Disney is excellent with any special dietary requests that you have. It can often be difficult to be trusting in restaurant situations when you have allergies or dietary requests but at Disney you know that you are in safe hands. The chef will always come out and talk to you personally. Frank, the chef who came to talk to us at Mama Melrose was very helpful.

For our vegan daughter he adapted the Mozzarella and Tomato Salad to a very nicely presented Tomato Salad and sent out lots of dishes of nuts for protein. A nice touch we thought. The tomatoes were good and were actually very tasty – something which often you simply don’t find these days. The younger ones had the usual cheese pizza and were, as always, very happy with this. The gluten free amongst us had the flat breads which were very good. The portions were larger than I expected them to be and we really could have shared. The cappuccino to finish was pretty good for a Disney restaurant.
