I was sooo excited to hear that one of Hamilton’s nostalgic pizzerias, Mother’s Pizza Parlour and Spaghetti House, was returning to our city. I was curious how’d they reinvent it, especially bringing back the unique taste that made it so beloved back when we were bambinos.
I got to have my first taste of the pizza I loved when I was a kid back in May when I went out with some ladies I used to work with. I wasn’t impressed with the décor but the taste didn’t let me down. The owners have done a fantastic job nailing the original taste and flavours of the Mother’s famous pizza from back in the day.
When I got home that night, I raved about it and told my family they’d have to try it. Life is busy in our household (as for sure it is in yours too!) so I finally made it back in August. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the Friday evening sun. I introduced the pizza to my young son while my husband had the Mexican Panzerotti (which was also very good!!). For days after, I wanted to go back for more …. I was addicted … lol!
Kudos to the owners for bringing back a little bit of Hamilton’s history and the authentic taste we all love and remember! Welcome Home!
