Brought some friends in for dinner. Our server Josh recommended the special risotto, and it was delicious. All around the staff was incredibly friendly. This is true Italian cuisine.

Godmother's is a great spot for a family vacation dinner. The ambiance is very cool and retro. The mussels were superb. The service was attentive and prompt. A very good value.

We were very excited to try the restaurant. Sadly the food was just ok, very bland with no flavor. Service was ok & had nice atmosphere.
