This was our first time here, and we were most definitely not disappointed. We didn't have a reservation on a Saturday night but, arriving early, we were fortunate to get a table for two and watched as the restaurant quickly filled with customers. The staff was exceptionally friendly, and our waiter, Doug, did a great job. The food was excellent,... More

Despite me having made online reservation for following night in error they managed to find us a table on Friday night. Very generous glasses of wine. Delicious risotto made before our eyes. Cameras over the hob allow diners to watch the chef at work creating delicious meals. Very efficient waiting staff. Thoroughly enjoyable experience. And no problems parking which is... More

We eat regularly at Oh Mama Mia. They have the best Italian food. Just recently, had a group cooking course which was educational and totally amazing with Giuseppe. Highly recommended.

I frequent this restaurant often during the year. I love it. I love Giuseppe and watching him cook. The food normally is fantastic. But, I brought friends New Year's Eve and the food was horrible and it embarrassed me and I felt that no effort was put into the preparation. I feel terrible writing this review, and plan to return... More

Food was wonderful! Generous pour of wine by the glass. New room was a little sterile and noisy! Service was fair at best. Felt rushed and not attended to. Delicious eggplant parm large portion! Will try again....it was holiday weekend.....

We were a party of four and ate at Oh Mama Mia for the first time. I had heard good things about the food and was not disappointed. Our waiter was Mino and he was very engaging and pleasant. The soup was particularly good. It was made with cannellini beans. The chicken and veal alla pizziaoli were well prepared and... More

My wife and I recently visited Oh Mamma Mia with another couple expecting to enjoy a delicious Italian dinner. On arrival one of the staff wanted to seat us at a table in the back of the restaurant where we could not observe the kitchen. One of then features of this restaurant is a large screen where dinners can observe... More

My husband and I decided to try Oh Mama Mia. We were not disappointed. I had the homemade lasagna. I t was light and cheesy. The salad with the meal was excellent. The service was very good. There was even Italian music playing to add to the atmosphere! We will definitely go back.

Sure there are plenty of Italian restaurants in Sarasota but this one is DA BEST! Chef Giuseppe Urbano is a genius when it comes to quality, wholesome traditional Italian food. I had the breaded veal chop that was sensational! It came with a delicious salad with fresh veggies. The wait staff is attentive and my suggestion would be to run... More

First time here. Read several reviews so decided to try. We are visiting Siesta Key for a few days. Unique experience sitting in view of all food preparation. Had the snapper special and it was excellent. The owner/chef was preparing the dish and he was very hospitable and the snapper limon with capers was fresh and very good. Will definitely... More
