My husband and I enjoyed a delightful, delicious lunch at this Italian gem. We went on a Saturday afternoon. Although it was fairly crowded, service was attentive, friendly and fast. The garlic bread was much tastier here than found at so many other Italian restaurants....More

nice restaurant in a nice location. Seating for five was a bit crowded and uncomfortable. My food was very good...sausage and brussels sprouts on orecchiette. Very tasty and filling. Others seemed to enjoy their food as well. Shared the cauliflower appetizer...that was well-received.

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.

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...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...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.
