Went here for our daughters birthday. We were looking for traditional Italian. Good reviews and good location. We all ordered a variety of items on the menu and did not disappoint. Portion sizes were more than fair and service was well trained. We will definitely be back.

Had not dined at Mom & Dad's for several years because the quality of food and service hadn't gotten really bad. I heard from a co-worker that new owners and staff now ran the show so we gave it another try. We arrived around 7:30 p.m. on a Tuesday evening and they were moderately busy. We were immediately seated but... More

The hostess and staff were all extremely nice and concerned about getting us seated. My husbanded ordered veal scallopini and I had the chicken piccata, each with a Ceasar salad.... More

Mom and Dad's is the ultimate feel good restaurant in Tallahassee. The food is fabulous. Great wine selection. Friendly wait staff and comfortable setting. My favorite is the lasagna. It is the definite go to place for all family and friend gatherings. Catering service or take out options are winners for parties or busy week nights.

I normally get the famous lasagna or stuffed eggplant, which is always great, but I tried the grouper with olives over pasta, and it was awesome! And to compliment our meal, the wine list is one of the best around - thanks Mom & Dads!!!!

Without a doubt, this is my favorite place to eat in Tallahassee! Enjoyed another memorable meal on Thursday. Perfect place to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine in a cozy atmosphere. The stuffed eggplant is my all-time favorite! Best red sauce I've ever had! Unbelievable flavors! Try the white bean and chicken soup! Just like all the dishes, I can taste the... More

Went with a group of friends for dinner. Everything was fantastic! Food was delicious, service was great & server was very attentive; good wine selection. We shared samplings of their desserts which were to die for. I would recommend to anyone who loves authentic Italian food. Best in town!!!
