Good food.

We found this place because of Groupon, but we really enjoyed the food. I had the macaroni and cheese with lobster. I expected it to be some macaroni and cheese with lobster mixed in; nope! They actually have me half a lobster tail and a claw. The macaroni was just shy of perfect, but it was... read more

Purchased Groupon for two for $32.00. Husband ordered one drink ($12.50 martini?). After adding a tip to check, found out waitress had neglected to inform us a 20% tip had already been included on meal leaving us paying her $18.00 in tip. Spoiled our experience.

My wife, son & I visited Mama Mia's and had some of the best Italian food ever! The Risotto, made @ your table is to die for. The breaded Flounder, the Lobster and the Lasagna dishes were all well prepared and presented. The deserts are also special! The staff is friendly, professional & attentive!

Went there on vacation with family and must say it was the best Italian food I have had in a long time. 5 of us had different meals and all were absolutely wonderful, and the waiter couldn't have been nicer. Will certainly go back next vacation there!!

Massive portions, friendly professional service and super tuscan wine at a nice price. For us, 6 Europeans, the massive portions were overwhelming. We would have appreciated to be told that the restaurant takes pride in quantity before quality. The quality was ok, but the even the big size of the take-away containers shows that they are aware of the appetite-spoiling... More

I've been coming here for years. Food is consistently good, bountiful, and the owner Joe will make sure you leave happy. The tomato sauce is fresh with real garlic slivers which i love. You won't be disappointed and will leave with extras because the servings are big.
