We enjoy this restaurant every time we come to venice. Love eating on Linen table cloths with lovely piano music in the background. Very attentive service. Food is very delicious. I did get a filet mignon and they had trouble over cooking. Next time will just stick with their pasta, which is wonderful. Very reasonable prices.

I have eaten at Mama Leone's since they opened several years ago. My husband and I loved it even before they built the very classy building they now have . Chris and Anastasia are so very wonderful. The pasta marina sauce is my favorite anywhere ! The pizza is delicious ! The house salad dressing is better than anything you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our annual visit to Mama Leone's in Nokomis. A few miles outside of Venice, it's well worth the short drive. The ambiance and decor here are incredible, the live background music truly suites and enhances the experience. The food and service were outstanding. My wife had the Shrimp Scampi and i had the Veal Parmesan. There is... More

We had been going to Leone's (Papa's) in Venice and they changed the lasagna, so we thought we would try Mama's. We loved the decor and atmosphere, but the food was mediocre. My husband ordered the lasagna and although he said it was good, he said it was not melt in your mouth heavenly good. I had spaghetti with meat... More

Terrible experience! To start off, it was a friends birthday and the owner decided that since we brought our own cake, he would charge each guest a fee for the cake to be cut and dispersed! Then, we received the AWFUL food! The salad that comes with the dinner is a poor excuse of a salad. Basically limp lettuce and... More

The parking lot of Mama Leone's is always packed, so I stopped yesterday to check it out. Admittedly, I came in at a slow time, between lunch and supper; the waitress couldn't have been more gracious and attentive. I requested a few changes to the menu item I wanted; no problem at all for the substituted Angel Hair pasta and... More

We arrived early and took advantage of the early bird bar offerings. When the waitress told us it was 2 for 1 wine I expected that both my husband and I would each get a glass for one price. Not so, they did a "double pour" and we got charged for both. My husband's meal was plentiful and very good;... More

We had reservations for last Friday night, there were 9 of us. The service was horrible, total lack of knowledge of the menu. The men at the table ordered first, served first and plates cleared. Women, who several of us are in the restaurant business, orders were wrong, plates NEVER cleared until we piled them in front of the guys,... More
