Never disappoints!

Have been going to this restaurant for years and have yet to find a better restaurant in Chatham. The food is always delicious and the service is second to none. Portion sizes are generous and almost always have enough to take home for a second meal. The decor is beautiful, with a spectacular mural... read more

Searched for an Italian restaurant close to the place we were headed and chose this place based on Trip Advisor rating. We have to agree 5 stars. For the service given by Ruth and the terrific meals we had. We have 4 separate meals and agreed we could not get enough to. Portion sizes and prices were perfect for lunch.... More

This is our favourite restaurant in Chatham, and usually always order the same thing, but when they are really busy, our meals have not always been good. So we try to avoid the really busy times. But we have had some of the most amazing meals here in the past.

Went in without a reservation but quickly seated due to an unexpected cancellation. Service was excellent, the wine was good an the meal was absolutely delicious. We are bi-yearly visitors to Chatham and henceforth, dinner at Mamma Maria will be part of our routine. Very good ambience.

The atmosphere is amazing, and the food was delicious!! I enjoyed a glass of white wine with the meal, and all our pasta dishes were amazing.

I had a quick business lunch at Mamma Maria's based on feedback from some co-workers. While the ambiance and service was good, the food does not compare to other Italian restaurants. For starters, the mozzarella balls were too crusty, nice oozing mozza cheese was there, but a very bland marinara sauce. The special soup of the day, butternut squash, was... More

Great fine dining in downtown Chatham. From the appetizers to the main dish, everything is fresh, delicuous, authentic. Everytime we've gone, we've enjoyed our food, the staff and the atmosphere.

Delicious food, excellent private dining room at the back from small functions (we got married there). Their prime rib when they have it is amazing. I love their mushroom risotto. Only downfall is high turnover in staff - but at times you luck out and get one of their really great servers. This is our go-to establishment for date night.... More
