When the food is good, it's good. When the service is good, it's good and timely. Problem is, you can never count on Mama. That's sad because there is potential. We've eaten here many times over several years and have never received consistently good food or service. Once, I brought my parents... read more

Used to be good. . . . has gotten steadily worse over the recent years. Mediocre food, slow inattentive wait staff, nasty bitter management. I'd pop a microwave Stouffer's in before I'd go back to this loser. Move on . . . . .

This is one of our favorite hometown restaurants. Great choice for a "nice" meal. We have tried many items from sandwiches, pizza, pastas, grat salads with homemade dressings. I would find it hard to believe you could ever get something bad here.

Was in the area and planned on going to Olive Garden but the line was out the door so we decided to try this place. I guess the first clue was: we were seated right away with no wait! IMy husband had eggplant parm.($12.50) and it was overcooked and smothered in sauce which was way too tart and tangy. I... More

What a waste of money. Waited 20 minutes after being seated to be given water. Ordered 2nd drink which never arrived due to the bar being backed up. Food was good but our waiter was overworked. Took forever to get check. No manager in sight. A terrible experience.

spotty service and barely a step above Olive Garden, but with higher prices - after they moved locations from east of 85, they've never been the same

Tonight we went here for our monthly supper club ~ upon leaving the bartender TERRI ran out to the parking lot, asking if we paid for the wine? WHAT, we paid over $100 extra for wine because the pours were so piss poor. The cost of each meal was $50 per person. The portions were small, tasted bland & we... More

I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant from my friends who live in the area. Nice space and location. Very convenient to almost everything... shopping, movies, downtown, I-85. We arrived around 7 pm on a Friday. We were sat right away. We were waiting on another friend to join us so we waited to order our meal and just... More

We have eaten at Mama Lucia's every New Year's Eve for the past three years. Every time we have been with a group of 15 to 20 people. This year there were 15 of us. Every employee, from the hostess to the wait staff, is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I ordered the Chicken Florentine and it was wonderful. My wife... More
