We chose this Italian restaurant because it offered gluten free options for my wife. The food far exceeded our expectations. (I am very discerning of Italian restaurants as I have been to Italy over 50 times, most recently just a year ago. I know good Italian food). The gluten free bread was the best we have ever tasted anywhere, including... More

This is a small family owned and operated restaurant in Lady Lake. It's authentic Italian. They make a great homemade pizza with your selection of toppings. Their homemade Cheese Ravioli is the closest tasting to the ravioli my mother made. I always order it to be served "hot" with their delicious marinara sauce. They serve homemade dipping for their freshly... More

We ate with friends at Mom and Dad's earlier this week. Food was very good to excellent. Bread was absolutely outstanding. Wait staff was knowledgeable and prompt. The only criticism is that my wife's dish could have been hotter. It is a small restaurant, so I would recommend reservations. All in all, a very good evening.

I and my family eat here frequently and I have to say it is one of the best (if not the best) Italian restaurants around. Their food is of very high quality, definitely fixed to order. They have some gluten-free menu items (pizza, spaghetti, deserts) that always taste fantastic. And they do not use MSG in their in-house cooked foods... More

My wife and I were expecting more from this retaurant as it was rated #5 out of the restaurants in Lady Lake Florida. My wife ordered the ravioli and I ordered the house special baked spaghetti. The sauce was watery and did not have much taste which gave my wife terrible heartburn. The best thing we ate was the bread... More

So sorry you did not fully enjoy your experience with us. Our sauce does tend to vary occasionally due the quality of tomatoes available and unfortunately they have been horribly acidy lately and we have corrected the problem. I hope you will give us another chance. More

We have never had a bad meal here. A friend must eat gluten free foods. She said that this place has the best tasting gluten free options. The rest of our group are not limited to gluten free and we all agree that their non-gluten free menu is also great. It's a win-win.

This was our first visit to this establishment and decided to give it a try after reading about Mom & Dad's donation of bread to the annual Scout's Spaghetti Dinner in Weirsdale. We were not disappointed! The atmosphere is very homey and the service could not have been better. We had several visits from our server to make sure our... More

We have lived in the area for over two years and have been by this restaurant many times. We always talked about stopping and finally did tonight for the first time.

For me, Mom and Dad's is a dream come true. I had eggplant parmagiana served with homemade biscuits, a very fresh green salad, and a cupcake. Everything was gluten free.
