Our daughter & her boyfriend took us here for dinner and they told us how great this restaurant was in advance. They were right on the money. It is superb! Awesome food. You will want to eat until you are ill because it is so good. Great staff. Can't wait to go back!! Mouth is watering just thinking about it.

This place is a must. THE most fabulous choice of homemade sauces, toppings and inclusions you'll ever find and each one, excellent. The veal picante melts in your mouth and we've never tasted such yummy meatballs. Service is friendly and personal. It's family style, casual and a bit noisy for people with hearing difficulties but don't let that stop you.... More

A nice home style place. Well cooked meals. The 'Roma' pasta with pink sauce and shrimp was over sauced ( order the sauce on he side). They would do better to have a little less free for all style menu and more prescribed, well thought out dishes. Wait staff were very friendly and good at their jobs.

This place knows Italian food. I would suggest you go early as it is small and gets really busy. Everything we ordered was amazing. They messed up on the calzone we ordered but we didn't have to pay for it.

The reviews say it all-big servings, great food, and great service-and it all applies. We were knocked out by the service, starting right at the door with the hostess and continuing with an amazing waitress whose recommendations were spot on. If you are looking for a sedate, romantic dinner, this isn't going to be your restaurant. If you want a... More

We had high expectations going in and they exceeded them! Great food and the best service I can remember, ever.... It was busy, but they met us with a complimentary piece of fresh baked bread and seated us within minutes! Loved it.

Just know the servings are big! You could very well share a plate and still come out full. The bread is delicious with oil, fresh garlic, and parsley (?). Very glad we went here!

The folks at Mama D's really pride themselves on their service and with good reason. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome. You get the feeling that everybody there is "family" and that they truly enjoy taking care of you. The food is good. I loved my pasta dish, and the meatball was fantastic. My husband's... More

Dinner with 7 members of our extended family. Short wait to get table together, during which time we were offered bread and drinks. Once seated, our waitress was incredibly attentive and friendly. The food itself was delicious, hearty and filling. The house "pink" sauce was great, and everyone loved their meals. Can't say anything about the desserts, as we were... More

At the end of a long day attending conference my friend went for a long walk on Huntungton Beach, then set our sights on dinner. We ended up at Mama D's. The hearty Italian fare and kick-back vibe were just what we needed. We started with the complimentary crusty bread with garlic dipping oil, then shared an order of linguine... More
