Mamma Mia Italian Restaurante will open on the first floor of The Pearl building, 101 W. Mississippi Drive, Muscatine. Brothers and co-owners, Feim and Gony Veseli, hope their business will cater to everyone, from families looking for an affordable lunch and business leaders holding meetings at the new hotel next door.
