Mama Alvino’s Pizzaria, Aurora, CO

Mama Alvino's Pizzeria on Urbanspoon

I am a fan of Mama Alvino’s in Bellevue, a suburb of Omaha, NE. I’ve been eating there for years. My blog post on that restaurant is at:

On the wall there is a newspaper article from when the Bellevue location was opened. It talked about the original location in Aurora, and I have wanted to try that location for a while. Since we were in the Denver area today, we stopped at the Aurora location for dinner. It was wonderful!

We started off with some cheese bread, with outstanding marinara. It was the same marinara I’m used to in Nebraska, but a bit spicier. Really good.

Raegan and I split a pizza; it was perfect. It was light on the pizza sauce, but the thin crust was perfect and the toppings were also (canadian bacon, hamburger, pepperoni). I also got a small meateater calzone; wonderful! It had some of that great marinara on it. Erin also got a calzone and liked it.

The iced tea was excellent, and service was spot on. Our check was $42.92. A great visit, I’d be happy to go again.

    Hmm. I definitely prefer the pizza at the Omaha location. The crust there is light, dry, crispy, and the toppings are non-greasy. Garlic/cheese bread was good in both locations. Denver did have Copper Ridge wine, though.
