mama stortini’s—italian flair meets northwest fresh

mama-stortinisWhen it comes to Italian spots, Mama Stortini’s has remained a Puget Sound staple year after year. With locations in Puyallup, Kent and Seattle, this local favorite continues to develop great classic cuisine.

Fresh ingredients coupled with extensive options mean there is no shortage of flavors for diners to explore. Classic pasta dishes are offered in a mix-and-match fashion, allowing guests the flexibility to choose their own type of pasta, such as capellini or linguine; pair it with a sauce, such as garlic Alfredo or tomato cream; and add delicious toppings such as sautéed mushrooms and roasted Tuscan-style meatballs. Other staples including tortellini au gratin and baked ziti Bolognese grace the menu as well.

No Italian restaurant menu would be complete without pizza, and the thin-crust pizzas found at Mama Stortini’s will not disappoint. They’re baked in an old-world brick oven and inspired by Italy’s Ristorante La Sacrestia. The Meat Classic is Mama’s favorite and touts four meats: salami, Canadian bacon, pepperoni and sausage.

Guests seeking an after-work reprieve will enjoy the extensive happy hour selections, filled with various small-plate options like baked mac and cheese, caramelized onion flatbread and grilled chicken skewers served aside warm pita bread. Of course there is a wide selection of signature beverages to choose from. Try a Mama’s Dirty Martini or a new specialty cocktail like a Ginger Manhattan: house-infused ginger whiskey and bitters. Happy hour runs daily from 3 to 6 p.m., 8:30 p.m. to close, and all day Sunday.

The ambiance is casual, friendly and very comfortable, allowing for an enjoyable dining experience.

Keeping customer needs at the forefront, gluten-free and vegan options are also available upon request.

Whether for your very first visit or the second time this week, stop in and discover why Mama Stortini’s continues to remain a Puget Sound favorite.
