We stumbled across this restaurant quite by accident. It was around 3pm and we were looking for lunch, and most of the places nearby were "kitchen closed". From the outside we weren't overly optimistic - it looked like a small pizza joint in a strip mall, but we were hungry and decided to go in anyway. Surprise - the "pizza... More

Had dinner with friends, a party of 8. Everyone loved their meals. We had the Tortellini di Zucca and Tortellini Prosciutto. These dishes were absolutely delicious! Our server Richard was attentive and helpful. We also enjoyed a delightful singing experience tableside. Our entertainer was charming and funny. It did take a while for our dinner to be served...longer that we... More

We were excited to visit again this year for another great meal. As always it is very cool to watch the chefs prepare the food. Their house salad is unique and delicious as well as their house bread and tomatoes. I had the crab ravioli with the vodka cream sauce and it was delicious. My husband enjoyed a pata dish... More

Unfortunately we had a very bad experience with service and the response from the administration about this was extremely slow. We expected better service from a restaurant that has great food. I would recommend that they put more attention on the service to their clients.

Excellent N Italian cooking with personable chef and staff. The wine selection is amazingly affordable as the mark-up is reasonable. The service is personal and attentive. The food is a good as N Italian gets.

There is a bit of a Cheers feeling to Oh Mama Mia - lots of white haired locals greeting one another and the staff seemed to know quite a few of them as well. We had a reservation on the early side and by the time we finished our meal, the place was packed. When I left a message to... More

A comfortable somewhat plain (decor-wise) trattoria at the end of a very plain strip mall just off Tamiami Trail, where cheerful Chef Giuseppe and his team served us and friends a meal that was a cut above ok yet not memorable. Yet we might return because it provides a comfortable, congenial place to enjoy good conversation. It's a "it's not... More

Owner Giuseppe and team of chefs in open air kitchen add interest to small restaurant with excellent Italian food- especially chicken dishes!
