Hours of Operation Tuesday thru Thursday: 4pm - 10pm Friday: 4pm - 11pm Saturday: 11am - 11pm Sunday: 11am - 10pm Mama Teresa's Flying Pizza has landed in Galveston, years after being blown from the Bolivar Peninsula by Hurricane Ike.

Being a lasagna fanatic I convinced my friends we should try that.

It was indeed excellent and came as an amazingly large portion (which made another meal for me the next day).

It was freshly prepared and did not seem to be reheated as I often experience.

The original Mama Teresa's opened back in the 80s in Crystal Beach on the Bolivar Peninsula.

Patrons to that restaurant enjoyed 25 years of delectable Italian fare and hand-tossed pizzas.

That venue was lost to Hurricane Ike, but they've now reopened in downtown Galveston, near the corner of Postoffice and 21st Streets.

From crowd favorites like crispy calamari; to delectable entrees like chicken and pasta with olive oil and garlic and shrimp fettucine alfredo; to some of finest pizza you'll ever enjoy, Mama's is back - better and more authentic than ever.

The beverage list has plenty of choices for any budget, including the de rigueur pitchers of draft beer.

We decided to share a variety of dishes so we could explore the menu.
