Mamma’s Kitchen, located at 7601 Fordson Road, is the passion of chef/owner Marianna Johnides, where she brings wonderfully flavored Mediterranean cuisine to Alexandria, made from the freshest, most delicious ingredients prepared in simple, accessible ways.
Marianna grew up in a family of restaurant owners. “I observed my mother’s own techniques and developed a personal style of creative, original interpretations of some of her traditional Greek and Italian favorites,” she said.
Her motto is: “If it’s good enough for Mamma … then it’s good enough for our customers!” You will definitely not have a chain restaurant experience at Mamma’s Kitchen.
The restaurant is open 11 am to 8 pm, for lunch and dinner, Monday thru Sunday. The dining room is open and has a wood-fired brick oven where the signature pizzas are baked. Original murals decorate the walls with scenes from Greece. The outdoor patio is open and is a delightful place to enjoy your meals.
Lunch specials are served Monday – Friday 11 am to 3 pm and include beef or chicken gyros, delicious main course salads, pasta, tuna melt, steak and cheese sandwiches, and personal pan pizza.
