We arrived and entered the restaurant, only to be told rather rudely to step out of the restaurant. Apparently the hostess wanted to clear the diners leaving, but was not friendly about it. Eventually we were finally able to get our name on the waiting list, and to a table about 10 minutes later, a reasonable wait. But, we were... More

This restaurant was recommended to us as a reasonable priced restaurant that serves huge portions of well prepared and delicious Italian food. And that is exactly what we got. Now we have enough for a second meal tomorrow night and we all have healthy appetites.

The food and service were wonderful. We've been here a few times when we are in town as it is the parents favorite and it is always good. This time I tried the linguine and white clam sauce and it was spectacular. Hubby had the pizza and said it was great. I also had the tiramisu. Very yummy.

We loved it! Server was great and food was fantastic at a good price. The Calzones were humongous and tasty. The Sangria I ordered was delicious. We went to another local restaurant where I ordered the same thing as it had been so good at Mama's and there was NO comparison. We will definitely be going back again soon.

We have been to Mama's a couple of times. The prices are reasonable and the food is good. The servings are large. My husband had the Lasagna both times and loved it, lots of sauce and cheese! I have had the eggplant and the steak. I took half of my food home both times. The eggplant was very good as... More

Mama's seems to draw in the crowds . Their sauce is sour and either from a can and cooked 2 hours, or like real Italians call GRAVY.It is rot gut.Gave me Diarrhea .Though people go there.It is moderate cheap priced .So it pulls in the older crowd.I would rather stay home for $ 1.00 and cook my own spaghetti and...
