I purchased a Groupon deal ($35) for dinner for two or more (up to $70 value). We brought our two kids with us, and thankfully, I had the younger one share with me, because I hadn't realized I would be paying a lot more out of pocket even after the Groupon voucher. We made a same-night reservation on a Saturday... More

A classic price fixe 6 course dinner. Wine included. In the family tradition of grandma, her daughter and granddaughter continue to prepare and serve a fine meal.

My friends and I were drawn to Mamma Mia's menu for restaurant week. It included "Complimentary glass of red or white wine, after dinner cordial, Selection of homemade desserts from the cart, and Espresso, cappuccino, coffee or tea all also available decaffeinated" The wine was mediocre, but it was complimentary so can't complain...after dinner cordial was strawberry creme limoncello and...

I'm sad to write a review like this; however, after our experience last night it is a must do. We had a reservation for 17 people at Mamma Maria's in South Philly based on a recommendation from friend. Parking was HORRIBLE so two of us were late getting to the table. Once we arrived we were shocked to find that... More

Our family loves this place for group celebrations. Most recently, my husband planned a surprise dinner for a total of 15. We have always said this a more of a group dinner experience rather than just a couple, but maybe that's us. We even had our wedding rehearsal dinner here almost 10 yrs ago. Mamma was not only the chef,... More

My husband and I came here a few years ago and had been meaning to come back. A Groupon offer gave us the perfect motivation, and Mamma Maria's did not disappoint! The service was wonderful and the food, delicious. We opted for the 5 course meal which was perfect. My fish was melt in your mouth and my husband got... More

Wow. I came here with a groupon and it was great. So many courses, the way they actually eat in Italy. The courses just kept getting better. I think the reason the restaurant isn't packed is because the decor doesn't appeal to a younger crowd. It looks more like a restaurant you'd go to with mom. The area here seems... More

Food was excellent. Mamma is there to greet and serve. Went for a birthday celebration. All the food was well prepared and plentiful. Will definitely be back.

I went to this restaurant since the hotel recommended it for Italian home cooked meal and endless wine and after dinner drinks for one low price. It didn't disappoint! The food was good and plentiful and so was the wine and liquor store after dinner ESPECIALLY the. Ream homemade limoncello!
