We stopped by on our way to New York. We read the reviews while driving and had to try it. I used the reservation system on the website and our table was ready when we arrived! We were not disappointed with Mamma Onesta's! We started our meal with bread, which was warm and delicious--looked homemade, covered with warm olive oil... More

Good spaghetti and meatballs. The pasta was not over cooked and the meatballs were moist and flavorful. It's not a big place. Yhe service is prompt and friendly.

What a great place to dine at! You cannot go wrong with the mussels appetizer. Get it with arrabiata sauce and you won't be disappointed. I love the chicken and veal florentina. Huge portion and delicious. My wife has enjoyed the Tutto Mare and Colossal Shrimp. I always get a jar of marinara to go. The prices are very reasonable.... More

Tried Mamma's when I first moved to Lockport (Oct 2015) and was so happy that we kept coming back. Great for birthdays, anniversaries, family get togethers as well as a romantic couples night out or a bar night. Smaller establishment but it has delicious food and wonderful service! Sausage and peppers highly recommended! All kinds of people -- couples, groups,... More

Mamma Onesta's is a very small restaurant in downtown Lockport, but has the BEST Italian food in the area. The lasagna and the stuffed shells were superb. I highly recommend making a reservation, as the restaurant can fill up quickly, especially on weekends. The staff are very friendly and efficient.

We have been wanting to eat here for over a year and finally tried it. It was the best Italian food I have had in the Chicago area. We definitely will be back. Great service and the food was the best. I'm excited to try everything on the menu!
