Restaurant Impossible - Mamma D's - CLOSED

Mamma D's Restaurant Impossible

Chef Robert Irvine visits Pipersville, Pennsylvania, where owner Luigi has combined all his passions into one building: Italian restaurant, farm, vineyard and wine shop. Robert was totally against the animals being on the premises, mainly for food safety reasons but also because of the smell and this was his first change that he suggested.

He told Luigi to take the animal home to his ranch. The food station was preparing different items than the main kitchen and not doing so very well was also removed. Luigi's son Louie, who is a fully trained chef but wasn't given any freedom in the kitchen was promoted to head chef and the dining room was given a revamp with a lot of the clutter being removed from the restaurant. The menu was also changed featuring more modern dishes. 

What Happened Next? 

Reviews after Robert visited were mostly good. He didn't keep Roberts menu and reverted to a menu using fresh ingredients from the family's farm. A year on and business was better than it was but still a struggle due to the economy of the area. The restaurant closed in October 2013.

This episode was episode 8 of season 2 and was aired on September 7 2011, there were 18 episodes in season 2 aired between July 2011 and January 2012 and the closure rate for Restaurant Impossible Season 2 currently stands at 67%
