The service is excellent, the atmosphere cozy. All food is cooked to order. Never a problem having something made the way you personally would like it. Have eaten here about 50 times and never had a bad meal yet!

If you're looking for a great pizza made with fresh ingredients, then this is your place. The other dishes and hot sandwiches are good too. They have a nice little seating area outside. Even outside, the service is pretty good.

Traveling south and asked about a locally owned restaurant and we were not disappointed. It's a five star (this tablet will not let me record more than two stars). Food was good, staff very attentive, many locals enjoying themselves. We had entrées - eggplant for me and sausage for husband - the pizzas seen at other tables looked good, too.... More

My wife and I love coming here even though tonight's meal is to go. The food here excellent. Tonight it's chicken parmigiana meal. Always good. Atmosphere is excellent and we always see friends when we come. Highly recommend.

We frequent Mama's with a LARGE group of our friends (18-20). We love the food and the service is wonderful. When there is a large group, sometimes restaurants have a hard time getting orders correct and in a timely manner. This is NEVER the case with Mama's. We all get what we ordered and in a timely manner. My husband... More

Moved from NY to Alaska now on to NC really missing my Italian food. My family told me about this little gem. We ordered 3 pizzas and they were amazing! Just like NY style pizza. Just the perfect amount of sauce. The cheese to crust and sauce ratio was perfect. The pizza tasted amazing. We will be back!

Food not as good as most Italian restaurants, it seems to lack the authenticity. Prices not good for the amount of food. Servers are generally courteous and professional. Nice outside dining atmosphere, but only in cooler weather, outside seating area faces the afternoon sun.

I bought pizzas for lunch for my office today as a treat . We had one white pizza one Mama's special and one half meat and half veggie. They were all delicious. Especially the white pizza. Great flavor and lots of toppings. Would definitely order again.

Not your "cookie cutter" (a la Olive Garden) Italian Restaurant. Prices a little higher than a chain restaurant, but it is worth it. Atmosphere is casual. Staff is friendly and the food is great. This is one of our favorite places to eat in Rocky Mount.
