If you are in the mood for Italian food while at Disney's Hollywood Studios then Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano is the place for you. As one of five Table Service Dining options at Disney's Hollywood Studios, it provides you the opportunity to have a relaxing sit down meal without leaving the Disney World theme park.
The flatbreads make an excellent lunch or you can choose from their pasta or other options for more of a dinner. The two pasta dishes that we sampled exceeded expectations.
Mama Melrose's would be considered a "normal" Italian Restaurant along the same lines as Tony's Town Square in the Magic Kingdom. Based upon this recent meal, I would rate the food quality ahead of Tony's.
Elsewhere at Disney World there are several upscale Italian cuisine choices: Tutto Italia Ristorante and Via Napoli in Epcot, Portobello in Downtown Disney, and Il Mulina New York Trattoria at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels. If you are looking for more of a fine dining experience I would recommend one of these, if you are looking for very tasty "basic" Italian dishes then you will be more than happy with Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano.
I would have to say that I was very pleased with the overall dining experience. The atmosphere was relaxed and suitable for families to converse. The food tasted great and exceeded expectations. The prices were very reasonable by Disney World standards. I would definitely recommendd Mama Melrose's to any who are seeking a Table Service Restaurant inside of Disney's Hollywood Studios.
