Good. Not great. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was about on par with Olive Garden. Now, in general we enjoy Olive Garden but I like to eat things in disney that we really can't get anywhere else. With that being said we would go again.

We enjoyed it in 2011. I got the steak, which was quite tasty.

We *love* Mama Melrose's. In fact, my sister is choosing to have her birthday dinner there this December because we like it so much. I *do* agree with the PP who said that the food is on par with the Olive Garden.

I'm glad you agree. I meant that in a good way. I hope everyone takes it that way.

A few years back we went and were not impressed. However we went again in December and August and it is one of our preferred restaurants now. DH loved the steak and I loved the Vodka penne. The kids meals are also a better portion than usual.

We are there at the end of September, and we had a great meal there. We all really enjoyed our meals. We have some dietary restrictions and they were one of the better restaurants for accommodating us.

We were there last December and it was just ok. A little disappointed as we've had some good meals. I had the chicken parm and it was frozen TV dinner quality.

Surprisingly better then it used to be, but still not great.

It's around on par with Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill. If you like those chains, then you'll probably like it. If you don't, then you won't. I lean towards not, but I do admit Mama Melrose seems to have improved since the last time we were there years ago.

...The dessert sampler they give you for fantasmic packages is horrible, though. Bleh.

Our Ratings of Mama Melrose: (rev 8/4/2013)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: B
. . . food quantity per serving: B
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: B
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: B
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: C
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: The Italian restorante does try to serve authentic dishes, but like most WDW
eateries, is highly Americanized. Even though, the food is tasty and pleasingly plated.
But, the pricing is high for the meals offered, bringing the value rating down to a "C".
We were not satisfied with our paying $20 for spaghetti with clams and clam sauce, and
the $22 Pork Chop was overpriced. They have an Italian wine cellar, but nothing to write
home about. Even with these, the eatery is more than acceptable as an in-park eatery
and is above average.

I haven't eaten there since 2009, and I thought it was decent.
