Italian Chicken Parmesan with Cheese and Sauce on pasta

Mama Mia! It’s the Best Italian Takeout in Hattiesburg

While we all love a good pizza, there’s another way to get your fix of marinara sauce and mozzarella. Get out the fancy plates, set the table, and pick up a homemade Italian dinner at a local restaurant near our Hattiesburg apartments. You’ll have everything you need for a great night in with the best Italian takeout in Hattiesburg.

Twisted Skillet

Twisted Skillet specializes in “Italian with a southern twist.” The homemade lasagna, meatballs, and fried eggplant all come smothered in marinara sauce and mozzarella, then baked until bubbly in a cast-iron skillet. Seafood lovers shouldn’t miss the Étouffée Fettuccine, with crawfish and shrimp cooked in a tomato-based sauce. The shellfish and fettuccine then come topped with a fried soft shell crab. There’s a reason Twisted Skillet is a favorite spot among Hattiesburg locals. Call to place an order for pickup or order delivery through GrubHub.  

Mario’s Italian Restaurant & Bar

Head down the street from the University of Southern Mississippi to Mario’s Italian Restaurant & Bar for a real taste of Sicily. Customer favorites include the homemade lasagna, fried calamari, and beef ravioli. A specialty is Shrimp Fra Diavolo — shrimp sautéed in garlic and basil with spicy red clam sauce over linguine. Mario’s is a family-owned restaurant, and most days you’ll find Mario is in the kitchen. The restaurant doesn’t deliver, so call to place an order for pickup.  


Owned by renowned Hattiesburg local chef and author Robert St. John, Tabella’s recipes are “straight from the Italian countryside.” The traditional Italian meat sauce will have you craving more of the Pasta Bolognese. Cheese lovers will also love the Chicken Parmesan topped with marinara and mozzarella. And don’t skip dessert! Order online for delivery from Waitr or Doordash, or call to place an order for curbside pickup.
