Mama Stortini’s to Open New Location


An old local favorite restaurant is getting a fourth brand-new location this May. Veteran restaurateur Roger Stilson is bringing his popular Mama Stortini’s Restaurant and Bar to Federal Way. This well-loved restaurant offers an extensive full-service food and beverage selection in all of their locations.

“We are excited to bring Mama’s Italian favorites to Federal Way,” Stilson says. “The area near the Commons is brimming with dining, shopping and entertainment choices, and we think our menu of authentic Italian and Northwest flavors will be popular. Mama’s is owned and operated here in the Puget Sound – and bringing Western Washington guests a wonderful local restaurant is important to us.” Stilson goes on to say, “Whether someone wants to drop in for happy hour on their way home, or enjoy date or family night out, our staff works hard to create an exceptional food and service experience.”

Specialty Restaurant Group opened the first Mama Stortini’s in Puyallup in 2004, followed by a Kent location in 2009, and more recently Seattle, at the Northgate Mall, in 2014. “Federal Way along 320th has become the area’s favorite retail and entertainment destination,” says Stilson. He describes Mama Stortini’s as “a go-anytime, order-anything restaurant featuring Italian favorites made with local ingredients.” The casual and comfortable ambiance with rich Northwest design accents and the large bar is perfect for “drop-in snack dining, lively socializing, and watching sporting events.”

Food and Beverage Director Derek Stewart describes Mama’s menu as “featuring familiar Italian classics with a creative Northwest influence.” The restaurant/bar duo has proven to be very popular by offering a wide range of choices at affordable prices.

Federal Way’s own Mayor Jim Ferrell also anticipates the new restaurant. “We’re excited to welcome Mama Stortini’s to Federal Way,” Ferrell says. “We look forward to enjoying an Italian and Northwest favorite restaurant in our community and giving our residents one more outstanding choice for their dining needs.”

Mama Stortini’s is opening a fourth location in Federal Way this coming May, and we are likewise excited to enjoy the timeless options and great prices they have to offer!
