Don't expect a lot of ambiance but this little gem has great service and great food. Homemade bread before the ravioli was chewy and crusty at the same time. You can eat in or take out. Small dessert list which we skipped because we had to get moving but we saw a carrot cake on the way out that looked... More

Really, the staff was great. A busy Friday night and their spirits were high. We got waited on quickly and bread and drink were served with the same quickness. Salad and dinner took no time at all. Actually, we were in and out in less than an hour. The restaurant itself is small and every inch of space is used... More

So sorry you did not fully enjoy your visit with us. Was the food just not to your taste? Do you prefer the cuisine of another region of Italy?, Or was there something wrong that we could have corrected had we known there was a problem. We have worked very hard for three generations to deliver the best possible food... More

Our reservation was for 6 pm. We arrived at 5:45 and were seated immediately. Started out with the large antipasto - looked pretty, but nothing special - Italian meats which could have been bought at Publix Deli, packaged American and mozzarella cheese chunks, etc. then came tasty cream of spinach soup. Hubby ordered the lasagna, which was very good, I... More

Spending a few days in Not-So-Sunny Florida seeking out some gluten free options for my wonderful wife. Boy did I find it!

The food is excellent! Portions very generous and the gluten free ravioli are homemade and melt in your mouth! Homemade bread with a bruschetta that you put on your bread is excellent! Better go early its a small place and fills up quick!

We are very fortunate to have some great restaurants to choose from in The Villages area. Mom and Dad's has been on our list to try for some time. We tried their food last weekend with friends. If I compare M&D to my personal favorite (Giovanni's), then I would say they offer some very basic Italian food. Their salad was... More

Yes you are correct we do have a limited and very basic menu, However our entire menu is prepared from scratch by a staff of two. Fresh bread made from scratch daily, ravioli, lasagna including the pasta, desserts, salad dressings etc. Everything is also prepared in a gluten-free option. To maintain the quality of our food we are forced to... More

Although the building inside and out could use a little new paint, it is a quaint place with superior food...some of the items eaten were veal cutlets, pizza and lasagna. Oh I don't want to forget the home made bread, delicious. It would be nice to have a drink but unfortunately they only serve beer and wine. Good experience all... More

We had a mix of gluten free and traditional pasta eaters. The gluten free and traditional breads were delicious. The house salad dressing had great flavor, the house burgundy wine was a lovely accompaniment to our dishes. The gf pizza and eggplant pram were amazing. Dessert was carrot cake- both traditional and gf- and everyone was delighted with them. We... More

We decided to go out for a meal but did not want to drive to far. We decided to try this place because it is always busy when we went by. The outside is not very impressive. Once we were inside it was a short wait. The staff was very friendly and our waitress Kayla was pleasant, friendly, knowledgable and... More
