Visiting LA from New York and found this small unpretentious restaurant which serves large portions of excellent home cooked food at incredibly low prices. Great family night out with warm and efficient service.

We were going to a play and dropped in for appetizers and wine. Was recommended by a friend, and so we went. I got a table in a front room, with a high top. Ordered some wine, a "flatbread" and large arugula salad. I am used to flatbreads being smaller, but this one came out and was seriously almost 2... More

Mama is now my favorite place for Italian food; this is a great place for a family meal, nothing fancy, but excellent food at reasonable prices. I tried Mama Terano when it first opened in 2013, but didn't think it was that great. I'm not sure if the place found a new chef or the previous chef perfected his skills;... More

Very good Italian food at reasonable prices. I had the shrimp with clams which was wonderful. Unfortunately it came with 1 small slice of bread. I asked for more to soak up the wonderful white sauce and was informed that extra bread was $2.50 additional for 4 more small slices. I like the food and service but next time I'll... More

My family and I showed up 3 minutes before closing and were welcomed in. The food is always good and occasionally great and the value is there.

Chef Robert is awesome! His creative take on classic dishes is amazing! The flatbreads were great, the pasta is fresh & delicious, and the Mama Meatball!! Yumm! It's a quant, casual space, perfect for a date night before a movie, or a group of friends getting together. A++++++

This was a favorite place of ours for a long time but we have not been there in over a year. The menu has changed but not for the better. We miss the calamari and the salad was not as good. The flatbread was good and as we remembered. We went on a Friday night and it was not as... More

The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable. The decor needs to be freshened up a bit. We ordered the pasta with clam sauce. Very generous with the clams! The bolognese was very good. We had to ask for bread.

This tiny restaurant in a quiet area of Rolling Hills, Ca. has some very tasty dishes. I visited it with my family on a Monday evening - FREE corkage night, so we brought our own wine for the occasion. My lasagna was not spectacular, and the gnocchi was very good, but a small portion. The scallops, or the chicken parmigiana... More
