a large group of us recently visited this restaurant, Mama Onesti's. We had reservations and it turned out we had 5 tables of 4 which was fine with the group. We were the first group of 4 to arrive and the server took our beverage order and gave us menus. Several minutes later when the server brought our drinks to... More

The hostess has no clue. Yes they were busy but no list started to seat people. Hostess states she does not know what is going on. Well if she doesn't who does?

This was our first and last visit. We were seated near the kitchen and as the waitress was walking by said drinks? Then she went away and we were given another waitress. She took our order and someone else delivered it. No other response and no other drinks. We finally went up to front and asked for our bill. Although... More

I have had her sauce and Italian food my whole life, as well as making my own sauce and Italian dishes. As you can imagine, I can... More

I had a great salad here with grilled chicken. Located a little bit off main road but easy to find . Very pleasant server, and quick. I have been wanting to visit this restaurant for awhile, glad I did.

Family atmosphere, good food, pleasant server. We were in and out in no time at all. I had the cheese ravioli and it was plentiful. My husband had a large spinach and chicken salad - I couldn't see any salad dressing on it. He ate it, however. Garlic Knots were a bit done on top, they were good. Cloth napkins,... More
