The waitress couldn't recommend anything on the menu which should have been a sign. We had the chicken marsala which was clearly microwaved potatoes and a slimy bottle sauce with tough chicken, served barely warm. Reminded me of a tv dinner version. My boyfriend had the penne with spicy meat sauce which was not spicy and average at best, also... More

Good pasta at a good price. Big portions. Dated look and bright inside but also friendly service. Food was delivered quickly.

If you get close to Mamma's you have to stop, unless you do not like "scratch" homemade Italian food. When you come in the front door you are treated like family. My test for a new Italian restaurant is spaghetti & meat balls. This was a "home run". Sauce, pasta & meat balls were excellent. The salad was extra $1.99... More

We were met and served by a well-meaning, pleasant lady. The decor is more than a bit worse for wear. It's obviously a local favorite. Great cuisine this is not. You might say it's barely Italian. The food is just odd and bland if you know what Italian food should taste like. If I ever had to stop in Perry... More

Well, it was next door to the hotel. The food was satisfactory. Spent the dinner listening to one waitress tell another how she hangs out with different men in bars. Didn't need to know that. Thank you.

The food was very good here. My husband and I shared the stuffed shells Florentine with shrimp. The salad was good. The kids' spaghetti was good. I wouldn't say it was the best Italian food I've ever had, but it was good. It was recommended by the locals, so we decided to try it. We weren't disappointed. The staff weren't... More

It's okay. The tomato basil soup is great. For something different, this is the place but I can do better cooking Italian at home.

Usual Italian entrees but also a few new dishes like an excellent seafood carbonara. Interesting flat breands and panini and salads. Funky decor with vines and grapes. Friendly wit stall. Come for a late lunch inasmuch as it is a come to place locally to dine.

Mama's was our second choice restaurant in Perry but when we did not like what we saw in our first choice we walked north a bit and visited this Italian restaurant. The decor is colourful and interesting, if rather old fashioned. However, the food was very enjoyable - delicious tomato and basil soup, he had stuffed giant pasta shells and... More
