We dined here a year ago and absolutely loved the food and great service, too. Then we returned with another couple in December and had another delicious experience. The chef/owner Giuseppe pays attention to detail and his dishes are very tasty. It's the real deal! Everything from the fish special of the day to the pastas were outstanding. We will... More

We brought an out of town couple, good friends of ours, who were visiting. We had high expectations for our first time visit but were thoroughly disappointed. We were seated in the front dining room next to the open kitchen with the weird mirrors to show what's going on. Wrong choice of rooms. The other looked cozier. The waiter seemed... More

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
