Delicious Italian Food in Boynton Beach, FL

So, while my cupcake search in Boynton Beach, FL was somewhat disappointing, those living near the area or visiting should definitely check out the following restaurant - Mamma Mia.

The original location has been around since 1983, but another one popped up about 3 minutes down the road from my in-law's house in 2009. My mother-in-law recommended that we try it, and we needed a place to eat the last night we were in town, so off we went.

We opted to share a dish since we were leaving early the next morning and would have no need for leftovers, and my in-laws wouldn't be back for a while so they didn't want food in the fridge or freezer. The restaurant charges $8.95 for sharing - basically it is for a second soup and salad - since most of the main entrees come with soup, salad and garlic knots.

We still had more than enough food with sharing the main dish. The soup choices for the entrees are Minestrone or Pasta Fagioli. My husband opted for Pasta Fagioli and I chose Minestrone, even though neither choice is one I am overly fond of. The soup wasn't bad though!

Next, we both opted for a Caesar salad, and it was delicious - not overly Caesared. I hate when the dressing is SO heavy.

We chose the Italian Feast as our main dish (website description: A taste of baked ziti, lasagna, one meatball, one sausage and stuffed shells baked with tomato sauce and melted mozzarella cheese). We asked for 2 meatballs instead of 1 meatball and 1 sausage because we generally aren't fond of sausage. Only the chicken kind from Trader Joe's! Haha. They had no problem giving us the 2 meatballs.

We each received one meatball, 2 stuffed shells, and a generous portion of lasagna and baked ziti. We probably each ate a little over half of our plates (combined with the soup and salad, we were stuffed), and unfortunately couldn't take it with it, though we definitely would have, if we needed lunch the next day.

The stuffed shells were my favorite, while my husband really loved the lasagna.

The location is nice and the staff was incredibly friendly and efficient. We enjoyed it a lot, and will probably go back next time we are in town, unless we find some other places to explore.

So if you are in the area - definitely try it out. It's worth it!!
