So I've been here a few times, and while the pizza is not bad I must say I had the worst experience I've ever had. I was on a date there and I gave the waitress $53 for a $52.xx bill, said keep the change, and put $12 on the table for her. We walk out and the boss sent a waiter out (different then the one I had) and he runs up to me saying, ""Your forgot your change of $1"". I immediately knew what this meant, and I though I shorted them and they were just being cocky about it. (Like we don't want your dollar tip you cheap-o) I claimed that I left a 20% tip on the table, to which he had no idea about. I said I'm going back in to speak to your boss and he please dont he will get upset. He ran to the table where he found the tip and acted like he was only trying to nicely give me my dollar back. ""When I said, I told you to keep the change they had a dumbfounded look and I said I would never return. I was just really upset becasue then I looked like a cheapskate to my date. Its one of the worst run businesses in the graduate hospital area. Check the table before you start a fight with a loyal customer.

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.

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!

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!
