The worst I've ever been treated in my life

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.

POLENTA BREAD IS 5 STARS, PIZZA IS 3ISH

SO MYSELF, MY FIANCEE (WHO RECOMMENDED WE GO HERE) & OUR SON WENT ABOUT 12/10/11. THE MALE WAITER WE HAD WAS SO FUNNY & HE MADE YOU FEEL SO COMFORTABLE, OH & HE WAS A FABULOUS WAITER. IT WAS LIKE A COMEDY SHOW ALSO HEY BONUS. WE ALL ORDERED PIZZA, OUR OWN ME & Y SON GOT SMALL'S & MY BODYDUILDER FIANCEE GOT A MEDIUM PIZZA. WE GOT POLEMTA BREAD, OUT OF THIS WORLD. I GIVE THAT 5 STARS!! OUR 1ST EXPERIENCE WAS A 5 THE BILL WAS $80.00 SO WITH TIP IT WAS $96.00

SO OUR 2ND TIME THERE WAS 1/11/12, WE BROUGTH BEER WE THOUGHT IT WAS B.Y.O.B. NO IT'S B.Y.O.W. SO THE FEMALE OWNER TOLD US TO LEAVE IT ON THE COUNTER SINCE THEY SOLD BEER (NO BIGGIE) UMM EWWW THE BEER SELCTION IS F**KING WEIRD, FYYING FISH- OH YEAH THAT SOUNDS APPEALING, UMM NOT. WE HAD A FEMALE WAITRESS SHE WAS AVERAGE AT BEST, WE DID'T WANT TO SEE YOUR UNDERWEAR HANGING OUT OF THE TOP OF UR JEANS. THE BREAD ONCE AGAIN FAB. THEY TOOK MY BOTTLE FROM MY ROOT BEAR AWAY WHEN I WENT TO PEE, HELLO I WAS NOT DONE DRINKING IT. $60.00 FOR THE BREAD & A LARGE PIZZA WE ALL SPLIT, HALF PEPARONI & HALF BROCCOLI & ALL X-TRA CHEESE. THE PIZZA WAS LIKE $27.00, BREAD $9.00, SALAD $13.00, DRINKS $9.00 (ROOT BEER BOTTLE, SPRITE & ICE TEA (WE OTHER HALF HAD TO REQUEST ADDITIONAL LEMONS THEY WE SO TINY). I LEFT THE REST IN A BAD MOOD, I WAS DISAPOINTED IT WAS NOT AS GOOD AS THE 1ST TIME, WILL NOT GO AGAIN.

Fantastic pizza for an awesome price!

Don't go to Pizza Hut or Dominos if you can go to Mama Palma.

These people really know how to make some fantastic pizzas!

Delicious

Great variety of pizzas and decently priced. You could easily split a med pizza between two people. The polenta bread pizza appetizer thing IS delicious. It was my favorite thing.

Makes my mouth water

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.

Good inexpensive place to eat

This is a good inexpensive option for dinner in center city. It's an easy walk to Rittenhouse, and the menu lends itself to sharing with your dining companions. Even the salads are large enough for 2.

LOVE Mama Palma's

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!

Best Pizza Ever

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!
