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

Good food, pleasant staff, small enough to have a cozy atmosphere, very fresh food. A simple menu but still with variety. Good wine list, reasonable prices. Ask for a table where you can watch your meal being cooked in the mirror over the chef's work station.

We have been going to Oh Mamma Mia's for a few years now and have done two of the Monday night cooking classes with friends. We love Chef Guiseppe AND his food!!! The atmosphere is warm and cozy and intimate. The open kitchen is entertaining. We love the food from the caprese salads and crusty bread to the Tiramisu and... More

My wife and I are regulars to this restaurant. The food has been consistently very good (except for cold vegetables at our last meal). We usually order the pasta which comes al dente and perfect sauce. However, probably the reason that we come back so often is the friendly and engaging chef, Giuseppe. We strongly recommend this restaurant.
