Varied menu, generous portions

We visited during Happy Hour which entitled us to double pours of wine. They also have a varied happy hour menu which we ordered. There was plenty of food to satisfy us. The food was fine; not great, but certainly not bad at all. Our waiter wasn't terribly personable but was attentive enough.

The food here is typical Italian. They have a varied menu and the staff is always friendly. I remember when they were just a small restaurant on the road with a few tables.

Our favorite takeout pizza place in the Venice area for 20 years. Crisp crust, plenty of toppings. Also a good Italian restaurant of you're dining in. Extensive takeout menu.

A group of 4 couples went to Mama's for dinner after golf one evening. We did have reservations. Out of 8 of us, 4 had issues with their meals. The hot soup was cold when it came out and it took forever for it to come back out. One dinner salad had cheese on that wasn't suppose to according to... More

We often order the white pizza & Greek salad for take out. We do always enjoy this, although the pizza can be greasy. We have eaten at the restaurant & it is very pretty, the staff always nice, usually some live music. The food is so so, it is fine, but not special. The price is reasonable. We had pasta... More

Stopped in at this restaurant without reservations and only waited about 20 minutes and it was well worth the wait. The food (spaghetti with meatballs and a pasta dish with chicken and broccoli) was very good and reasonably priced. The entrees were served with a lovely house salad and warm garlic bread. Our server was friendly and attentive. We went... More

Make a reservation if you don't want a big wait. Very limited parking. Nice but very crowded atmosphere, clean and packed with tables. When you arrive, there is no place to wait. The bar is as you walk in, and the area is loaded with people waiting. A varied menu with good selections in all Italian areas. Mid to higher... More
