About Us

Our Family-Owned and Operated Restaurant Has Been in Business Since 1963


Being established in 1963 as Milford Pizza Center, we were simply like any other pizza restaurant operating in Milford, Connecticut. After changing our name to Mama Teresa's Italian Restaurant & Pizza in 1978, we adopted a completely new and different approach to Italian cuisine. Our menu has a variety of delectable options that are guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of children and adults alike.

We're very quality conscious and ensure that our food is prepared fresh on-site. Our restaurant strives to provide perfect services to make our guests' visit as memorable as possible. In 1998, we acquired a bigger establishment to aid in the comfort of our guests, have enough room for large parties, and ample car parking space.

Call us today to inquire about our lunch and dinner menu, takeout, and catering services. You can also choose to order online.

What Our Guests Have to Say

Emily B. is our waitress today. We came in from Missouri. Our lunch was delicious. All six of us found it delicious and the service fabulous!! Wish we lived closer or we’d be here quite often! Thank you for a delightful lunch! Our youngest said it was the best spaghetti and meatball she ever had.

Elizabeth White Sparks

Outstanding place. Very attentive waitress and great food. Been going there since I was a kid when they were across the street.

Tom Barrett

Excellent sausage pizza! Staff is always very accommodating and pleasant. Very efficient and food is delicious!

Nancy Burban

Haven’t been there in years and went because I received a Groupon and the dinners are delicious, inexpensive, the waitress paid attention to every detail.

Janet Marx

We’ve always loved Mama Teresa’s for years. Food, pizza and service are always great. Today we ordered catered trays of jumbo ravioli, chicken marsala and baked stuffed clams. They were amazing and reasonably priced. Can’t go wrong. Does not disappoint!

Suzanne Riccio Wolfe

Definitely has my favorite pizza! I also love some of their other lunch and dinner dishes. The service is always efficient and the staff is extremely kind! One of my favorite places to eat.

Lauryn Ellis

The food was wonderful, the waitstaff was amazing! We had our 11-month-old grandson with us and they got us our food extremely fast and were very sweet.

Cheryl Craig Smith

The angel hair pasta with meatballs is great. That is the only dish I eat there because I don’t like experimenting with food unless I cook it myself. It’s a winner and I’m sticking with it.

Francis Niestemski

Outstanding food and very friendly service!! Can’t wait till we go back!
