Making "Fresh Homemade Food Since 1956," Mama Louisa's is the old hat among the handful of traditional-style Italian restaurants in Tucson. The recipes for the pasta and various sauces have remained unchanged since 1956, proudly made from scratch daily. The restaurant attracts a diverse afternoon patronage. The lunch crowd typically consists of Air Force servicemen from nearby Davis Monthan Air Force base, groups of business professionals, blue-collar workers from the industrial section of south Tucson, and elderly folk—who have probably eaten there since before most of the clientele were conceived. The lunch menu is extensive, and the portions are immense. Baked Ziti, Chicken Parmesan, Sausage and Pepper sandwiches, and other Italian staples are available. Open daily 7am onwards.
