Good meal at reasonable price

Went to Mamma Luisa's for dinner and it was a pleasant experience. Service was great despite the fact our server spoke little English. The price was reasonable and we all enjoyed are food order.

This restaurant has it all, great food - try the gnocchi - excellent service, beautiful setting and great value. Dinner for two with wine, appetizer, dessert and coffee expect around US 70.00. Great value. Shuttle from the Westin available, walking distance from the Sheraton four points

It is the perfect, informal restaurant for the light eaters! It has Carpaccio’s which are really good, creamy, Buffalo Mozzarella (quite large for one person) on top of plump tomatoes, and a good selection of Italian dishes and refreshing drinks. The service is very accommodating but I do recommend inside seating if you go during the day, as it can... More
