We wanted some Italian and this was very good. My husband loves fettuccine Alfredo and said his was good. I had spaghetti and meat sauce, also very good.

From the fresh mozzarella & tomato to the tortellini soup. From Seaford Fra Diablo to pork everything was exceptional. In the middle of a tourist area Mama Rico's is a real gem which would stack up to any Long Island place!

The food was great! My husband thought portion was a little small but he loved his meal. Casual atmosphere. I had chicken scarpiello and my husband had lobster fra diablo. Excellent meal! Average dinner $20-$25. Comes with house salad.

Had the broiled scallops and they were cooked perfectly and the light wine sauce was very flavorful. The bread is warm with a nice crust. The atmosphere is old charm and has a home like feel. Will definitely go again

Placed was jammed but the service was still good. The garlic bread is to die for (on the appetizer menu). Our meals were steaming hot and cooked to perfection. Give this a try.

So we are in Lake George for our first time and in the mood for Italian food. We drove past this place and figured we would give it a try. The moment you walk in the door, the smell of real Italian food was unbelievable....More

We had struck out at virtually all the restaurants we visited in Lake George...all had terrible service and bad food until we found Mama's. Decor is a bit dated but food and service were excellent. Even found a super Tuscan that was a huge bargain....More
