MAMA MANOA – Pizza, Wings and Greens!

Mama Manoa restaurant opened on March 2, 2018 in Manoa. The quaint Italian

Bistro features Pizza, Wings and Greens in a relaxed atmosphere that pays tribute to local Hawaii athletes

and University of Hawaii Rainbow Warrior Spirit. Guests at Mama Manoa may dine on the outdoor patio

complete with waterfall and fresh herb garden while enjoying local and national sports on widescreens.

The menu includes many items named after local sports superstars such as the Maa Tanuvasa Meat

Lovers Pizza, the Greg Salas Carne Asada Pizza and the Rich Miano Italian Sandwich. All the creations of

Executive Chef Serge Allerano who has put together some of his favorite Pizza, Chicken Wings, Sandwich

and Salad recipes from over twenty years of cooking experience. The menu also Includes Mama’s

Homemade Meatballs, Spaghetti with Meatballs or Meat Sauce, Lasagna, Garlicky Cheese Balls and even

a “secret” menu that you can only learn by word of mouth. Owner, Drew Santos, created the concept for

Mama Manoa out of his love and passion for University of Hawaii sports. “When you look around the

Honolulu area, there are few venues that pay tribute to Hawaii athletics and the great people who have

played here and then gone onto professional careers. We wanted to bring those players to life and

showcase them while promoting school spirit for the University of Hawaii”. “It has been amazing to see

many of Hawaii’s sports icons like Marcus Mariota, Dave Shoji, Maa Tanuvasa, Greg Salas, Natasha Kai,

Chad Owens, Robin Ah Mow-Santos and others visiting and eating at the restaurant” according to Santos.

A portion of the profits at Mama Manoa will be donated to the Mason Kekoa Nava Macloves Memorial

Scholarship and the University of Hawaii Cancer Center. “Giving back to our community is part of why we

are doing this Santos said.

Mama Manoa is located at 2740 E. Manoa Road.
