I've lived in Italy. Most restaurants there are independent, family operations. The food reflects that individuality. So does Mama Cucina. Good food. Their own approach to things. Lots of "pink" sauce. Very Old World atmosphere but right in the middle of the Innsbrook development.

Food is INCREDIBLE and portions are HUGE! Salad is served family style with entrees and it was delicious as was the home made bread. We tried a chicken with pasta dish and a cheese ravaoli dish with walnut alfredo sauce. Both were fantastic. Service was good. Dining area was a bit loud but the food is so good that you... More

I've eaten here a handful of times. Even in lunch rush, I am always quickly seated. Place is quaint and not very spacious so if you're looking to gab and gossip, don't use any names because odds are your dining neighbors can hear your conversation. Food is pretty tasty! Service there gets the job done, your food gets to your... More

Food was wonderful! My husband got soup and wanted to go back again today to have it again! I got the seafood dish and asked that the calamari be left out - which was - it was great!

Tremendous selection, big portions, very authentic. The pink sauce is great. The stuffed chicken, Italian combo and veal dishes are excellent. Each meal is served with a family style salad and bread with garlic and oil are served with each meal. The place is small so make sure you call to get a seat!

A nice restaurant with great food! Love the fresh salad and bread. Food was delicious and plenty- you will probably bring home leftovers! Highly recommend the Seafood pasta, carbonara fafarelle, and shrimp scampi

My husband and I decided on this restaurant last minute....This place was rather unexpected. It's rather small and being a Saturday night was packed wall to wall, however we only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. We got off to rather a rocky start with the waitress(busy night) but things got better. The portion sizes were excellent... More

The food is always fantastic and freshly made. I highly recommend eating there. They fill up quickly at dinner time, so get there early.

First time here and it was amazing! Fresh bread and salads and the pasta portions are huge. No room for dessert on this visit but we will be back soon.

We were on a business trip and read the reviews and decided to try it. The reviews were right--the food was delicious. The canoli was good too!
