I have been eating here since the 1980s. Although the owner Pepe is Spanish, it is a great little Italian restaurant.

Thanks to other reviewers of this place, I was able to delight my mom today by picking her up a slice of cheesecake. The guys at Mascarpones dressed it up for us with some whipped cream and berries. Amazing quality - like homemade with lovely graham crust. Too big for my poor mom to finish, so I had to help... More

We have dined here many times over a span of probably 20 years. You cannot really go wrong. As others have said, you will drive right by if you not aware of it because it is not a "stand alone" restaurant. Plenty of parking in the rear. Family owned. Anything will be good. Nice small intimate bar. Reservations would be... More

I've never had a bad meal here - either dinner or lunch. Nice wine list, good variety on the menu, attentive service and reasonable prices. Lunchtimes are uncrowded. It's an intimate restaurant, but acoustics are good so never had noise be a problem. Ownership is friendly and involved in all aspects. My favorites are Cappelini d' Angelo, Penne Arrabiata, and...

You can drive right by and not see it. Almost all parking (Plenty of it) is in the rear. We were able to park right in front of the front door on the street. We were seated right away and noticed it was kind of dark, but felt like grandma's place. The selection was very large. The food portions were... More

Recently, my wife threw me a surprise birthday party at Mascarpones which turned out to be a big success. Your facility was perfect and the food was, as always, delicious and out of this world. Many people approached me afterwards and commented on the food selection provided and on how delicious and generous the portions were. The service was meticulous... More

Mascarpones was recommended by some friends. We looked the address, drove over and could hardly find the place. We passes by twice and finally found it. WOW...were we pleasantly surprised. Decor was dated but menu and food was outstanding!!!!! They will prepare anything and any style you want. The owners wife prepares all their cheesecake and once you take one... More

Dark and cozy restaurant with the best Italian food I have found in Orange County. Superb service and priced reasonably for the quality and quantity. The garlic bread is delicious. I usually try their specials and have loved everyone of them. Their spaghetti sauce is rich and flavorful, stuffed shells are out of this world, and their seafood is cooked... More

You will not be in and out, so expect to have a meal in a family owned Italian restaurant. Bread was very good and the minestrone soup was very good!! Pasta was cooked just right! I had the veal parmigiana which was average. The tiramisu was excellent!!! It is old-style traditional Italian restaurant and it small. It was an enjoyable... More
