Used the new take out on Groupon for this. There was absolutely no benefit in doing so. No discount. They did not even being order till I got there 20 minutes later and had to wait. They did not include plastic ware or napkins as requested. What is the point of this service on groupon?

What You'll Get

Contrary to popular belief, when the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's a lawsuit. Enjoy Italian cuisine without fear of physical reprisal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of classic Italian cuisine and drinks at Mama's On The Hill.

Born more than 60 years ago under the name Oldani's, the current Mama's On The Hill shares stories from its flavorful diary through a menu of well-seasoned, time-tested Italian treats suitable for lunch and dinner. Before you attempt to ascend the "Hill" of spaghetti ($9.75), warm up your jaw on an order of toasted ravioli ($7.25) or crab-stuffed mushrooms served with an asiago cheese sauce ($7.95). The abundant entree selection features an array of meaty and seafoody varietals, such as the tender veal piccata, which lets you savor the sautéed slices in a lemon-butter-caper wine sauce ($16.95), and the grilled salmon, drizzled with Mama's own chianti-balsamic glaze ($17.25). Or, warm up by having a winter fling with Mama's signature dish, pollo spedini, a breaded boneless chicken breast stuffed with prosciutto, provel, and veggies ($15.75). Pizza pies offer ease of dining for large groups, small children, and post-pubescent reptiles skilled in the martial arts ($8.95+).

Mama's boasts a casual atmosphere where warm, friendly service mingles with the intoxicating aroma of red sauce wafting through the dining room. The eatery's décor manages to be understated yet elegant, like Cary Grant in flip-flops. Two Groupons can be combined for tables of five or more, so invite a triumvirate of ancient Roman roommates to Mama's and help them decide how to divide the apartment in a way that inevitably leads to civil war.


St. Louis CityVoters named Mama's On The Hill Best Italian in 2010, and Citysearchers give it a four-star rating. Twenty-three Yelpers give Mama’s an average of three stars, while TripAdvisors give the restaurant an average rating of four owl eyes.

  • While there are plenty of choices for italian on the Hill, I would definitely recommend you check out Mama Campisi's for great italian atmosphere and food. – Michael B., 4/2/2010, Yelp
  • We were treated like we were the only ones in the restaurant, not only by the employees but also by the owners who seemed to take great pride in what they were doing – mysissy, Citysearch

About Mama's On The Hill

According to many members of the close-knit Italian community on The Hill, it was at a restaurant called Oldani's in the early 1940s that a clumsy chef dropped a piece of pasta in frying oil and created the first toasted ravioli. That dish went on to become a Saint Louis specialty, and Oldani's went on to become Mama's On The Hill, rechristened by matron Mama Campisi, who took it over in 1982. When Mama's sons, John and Frank, had to give up the restaurant in 2005, Lance and Andrea Ervin jumped at the chance to take over the culinary landmark. They reopened it in 2006, retaining many of Mama's original recipes as well as the crisp signature pasta.

Ivory and black stripes upholster padded chairs in the understated dining room, where a set of glowing candles are ensconced in a stone fireplace. Here, Mama's special recipes still serve as blueprints for many of the house sauces, including the marinara and parmesan cream. Salmon entrees are drizzled with her chianti-balsamic glaze, and deep-fried shrimp do cannonballs into her cocktail sauce.

Mama's famous fare also lures avid diners to enroll in culinary classes taught by kitchen staff. In the currently running sauces class, up to 20 students set pots a-simmer in groups of five, fueled by appetizers, snacks, and pep talks given by freshly cracked bottles of wine.
