Yum!

Delicious! There is a staff member that seems to have an attitude problem and really shouldn't be working with customers, but other than that....the food is great.

As a business that is always trying to provide good service. We're very sorry to hear this. If we would have had this brought to our attention it would have been taken care of. We'll be watching, unfortunately it was brought up one of these sites that can DESTROY a SMALL MOM AND POP BUSINESS. More

A local eatery with wonderful homemade style lasagna and you pick your own ingredients. We've never been disappointed.

I enjoy dining at Mama Digrado's about once a month. Their Calzones are my favorite, you can choose original crust or thin crust and about ten different choices of toppings. My favorite is the Italian Sausage on thin crust. The crust is crispy and has marinara sauce, a generous amount of Italian sausage and a blend of cheeses. They also... More

Ordered carryout for lunch. The food was ready within the 20 minutes that they stated over the phone. The toasted meatball sub was fantastic. It had lots of cheese and meatballs with a mild marinara sauce stuffed in good quality bread. Also tried the taco supreme pizza, which was very good, although I gnerally prefer more traditional toppings such as... More

We eat here about once a month or so. The food is good and the best thing about it is the way they let you customize the dishes. My husband loves the way he can choose meats and other items for his lasagna. The chicken alfredo is my favorite, allowing a choice of penne or angel hair, and addition of... More

This place would be great, but the wait staff just doesn't seem to get it. I like the atmosphere, the food, and the prices are pretty good. However, every time I end up dining there, I see a face-palm worthy service snafu. "You're an Italian restaurant, but you don't have Italian dressing?", that was one of the more amusing comments...

Not sophisticated, family owned and run, with pizza that beats any of the chains, plus hot subs and calzones that remind me of a New York Deli. (Try the Pepperoni, Mushroom and Sausage baked sub) Mama's deluxe is an ideal pizza for those that like loaded pizza. I like the thin crust best, but there are three choices for crust.... More

This place is out of 1950s New York City. Basic red sauce is used with abandon. Gimmick is about 15 pizza toppings can be used on pizza blanks, or added to pasta, and even iceberg salad. Basically it is toppings, nearly out-of-can tomato sauce and some cheese. Busy place. Inexpensive to moderate. Beer and box wine. No atmosphere. Tables have... More
