Wow. What a disappointment. We tried it after reading the reviews. Anticipating good Italian. Very wrong. We ordered 3 meals. Veal - chicken Lemone and a simple order of spaghetti. The only meal that was eaten was the veal. And that was because my husband was very hungry. The soup and salad was good. But the main course didn't make... More

1. Food: Very good. Stuffed shells & manicotti are my favorites. Food is always "piping" hot. 2. Service: Very good to excellent. This visit in particular I'd rate as "excellent." 3. Atmosphere/ ambience: 3.5/5.0. 4. Overall rating: A solid 4.0/5.0. Will definitely return.

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
