We love this local family restaurant. You need to get there early because it is small and fills up fast. The homemade spaghetti noddles are great and the sausage has a nice kick. The staff is friendly and quick to serve.

Visited Papa Mazzotti's last night at around 7:30. Very small dining room that was full; had a 12 minute wait. Decor was OK (I don't go out to eat for the decor). Our waitress was quick but curt. Drinks were served in large plastic Coke glasses - good size - with lots of ice. The salad that came with our... More

Love they have more than just the standard marinara sauce. Wish they had a bigger place, because they always have so much business. Always worth the wait.

Our family loves this little restaurant and has been going for many years. The new building looks great, and has a family atmosphere. The sausage is my favorite. Because it is small it can fill up fast, but is worth the wait. We have always had large portions and friendly service.

This is at their newness location at 2nd and Lake! Loved the food and the service really made us feel special. I had the spaghetti olio--olive oil and garlic sauce. Yummy. Blue cheese and homemade Italian dressing on salad. Sopped it all up.

My wife and I have been to the new location several times, and are glad to go back. The location is very small, and can feel crowded. When it is busy, the service can be slow as well. However, the food is really quite good. It is nice to go get Italian food from a mom & pop type place... More
