Authentic and delicious Italian food! Don't be deceived by ordering at the counter vs. waiters and waitresses. The owner Frank, is wonderful and dedicated to providing great Italian food at great prices. Salmon al Forno is delicious, tender veal and chicken dishes and Fra Diavolo sauce is incredible! If you truly enjoy authentic Italian food you won't be disappointed!

I heartily enjoyed Cantina Mamma Lucia. I had previously visited for take-out, so this was my first time sitting down. I had planned one dish, but the waitress suggested the special -- a seafood linguine. I was incredibly impressed!

They off a buffet of Salad, two entrees, lots of sides, pizza. Very quick and great for lunch between work. Also, get to order fresh oven sandwiches and mussels. Co-worker loves the mussels.

At a recent end of season sports banquet Cantina Mamma Lucia was purchased for our dinner. A spread of delicious pastas, bread and salad was shared by about 80 people! There was nothing left!! I highly recommend using Cantina Mamma Lucia to provide the food for an event like this - it was a crowd pleaser!

If you want Italian, worse case go to Olive Garden. Alfredo tasted like egg drop soup noodles. Lasagna with meat sauce barely had meat. No flavor. Garlic bread was good.

Dear Sherri, It is unfortunate that you did not think highly of our food. I'm not sure what you mean by the noodle comment, but our meat and cheese Lasagna is made with layers of ground veal and if you added meat sauce as a topping, but did not get it, I apologize. If you are ever in town again,... More

They have an extensive Italian food menu. You order your food and drinks (wine/beer are available) at the counter and pay then. You're given your drinks and a receipt with your order number on it. If you order an appetizer, they call your number as soon as it's ready and then again when your main course is ready. You ALWAYS... More

If its Italian food I will always look for different Italian restaurants that are not part of a big brand or chain. I had dinner at this Mamma Lucia Restaurant and they started cleaning while I was there eating. I had to return the plate because the veal Scaloppini was tough to eat although the sauce was delicious. After a... More

Dear Joy, I must not have been working that night, but I hope that my manager's first response was to ask you what he could do to make the situation right. We use fresh cut veal and sometimes there will be a piece that is not as tender as it should be. Thanks for letting me know. Frank More

I was taken back a little that you ordered at a counter and then they call your number when your order is ready. But the food was excellent and I would go back when I'm in the area.

The best things about Cantina Mamma Lucia is the friendly staff and that the great food selections are always Hot when you get them. You order and pay for your food and then they call the number on your receipt if your get an appetizer and again when your main course is ready to be picked up at the counter.
