Amazing find! Arvada Favorite!

This is a family favorite, and a must try in Arvada! I've been here multiple times, and every time I've had great service and amazing food! I love the garlic bread and cappellini christine.

My friend and I love Italian food. Several months ago, we decided to try a different Italian restaurant for lunch every Friday. After about 16 different Italian restaurants, Mama Sannino's is our unquestionable favorite. Its a relatively small venue with the most amazing food. Great Italian food doesn't require fancy ingredients such as foie gras or truffles. Nope, real Grandma... More

We were looking for a lovely little Italian restaurant serving home made food for our daughter's 12th birthday with the family. Could not have been more pleased. Food was great, atmosphere was great, service was excellent. They had no problem with our bringing our own cake and treated my daughter like she was a princess! The only disappointment was that...

Went to the old Arvada location a long time ago and weren't that impressed, but tried the new place at the Fenton address in Wheat Ridge and really liked it. Good simple food, large portions, and the service was great for our table of six.

Best home style Italian food in Arvada. This is one of the original 3 Three Son's from North Denver. if you grew up in North Denver back in the 60's & 70's you ate at 3 Son's for the best Pasta and Pizza.

We were meeting in a nearby office and were recommended to eat lunch at Mama's. It is not someplace I would have stopped at being in a strip mall. It was a very pleasant surprise. The lunch food (spaghetti with Italian sausage) was excellent and the right proportion. The prices were also very reasonable (low) for a place in the... More

We ate here over the weekend, and throughly enjoy the food. This is a well decorated restaurant that changes the design based on the holiday. We had the margaritta pizza. It was made properly and had great flavor. Some restaurants skimp on the toppings, but this was loaded. We had enough to take home for another meal. We are going... More

I had the lasagna and salad. Wow! That was the best ever! My wife is an Italian cook and usually does not like any lasagna other than her own. She said it was the best she has ever had. Congratulations to Jimmy and Karen Sannino for a real gem!
