The best Italian in the area

Having moved out of the area, I found what I missed most about Hanover. It was the food at CML! No kidding. My wife and I just visited last week after two years sine our last visit. We went to dinner the first and second nights. The Veal Picatta was prepared just as it has been for years... read more

We eat here regularly and haven't had anything less than outstanding. Always hot and fresh and served with a smile.

This place is very popular with locals like us. You order your food and when it's ready, they call your number. The sauces are made from scratch. You'll be happy with whatever you order. They sell alcohol.

Being from Baltimore, it is hard finding places who have new york style pizza. I decided to find one this weekend and was very surprised. We decided to order pizza and wings and stay in that night. We ordered a large cheese pizza and 10 buffalo wings. the pizza was perfect. the right temperature and the right amount of cheese.... More

Cantina Mamma Lucia has some of the best Italian food in Baltimore! Don't let the counter ordering fool you. Frank and his staff are so proud of their restaurant and have every reason to be. I travel weekly, frequent them often and I've always enjoyed authentic Italian food. The Salmon al Forno is awesome and ask for your pasta side... More

Went with a group and the service was fast. Every person ordered something different and everyone liked what they got. Definitely a place to go back to. Great shrimp scampi and chicken Parmesan.

I went because I got stuck in Baltimore and needed a bite to eat. I went on Trip Advisor and found Cantina Mamma Lucia. I walked in and asked if they were ITalian.. They weren't.. Which is a red flag...They had a cafeteria style kind of ordering system and pickup. With a nice salad bar as you waited for your... More

Dear Sir, My brothers and I are the owners and sons of Italian immigrants. My mother is from a town in Southern Italy called Mileto and my father, who is also a partner here is from a town outside of Naples called Guardia Lombardi. If you would have asked if the owners are Italian, the answer would have been, "very... More

I was just at Cantina Momma Lucia, and I was disappointed with most of the visit. The spagetti sauce was, or tasted canned. The Meatball, although huge, was once again, average. The salad bar, however, was pretty decent. you have to reach very far to get most things. There was a pretty decent selection for a smaller one. I was... More

Thanks you for taking the time to write a review. It doesn't seem that you were disappointed with most of your visit since you pointed out several things you enjoyed and thought two items, our homemade sauce and meatballs, were average. Please stop by and try one of our Italian specialties for a better idea of our menu. More

Close to work and a pretty good place to eat lunch. Enjoyed their special each time I have dined here. Did hear a customer complain about a crab dish once when they advertised lump crab but all they got was minced crab. Pizza is good. Had them do a business lunch once and it went over really well with my... More

Friends took us here and we were delightfully surprised by the high quality of the food. The serving were almost too much, we end up taking some home for a great lunch the next day. The prices were reasonable and we will certainly be going back when we're in the mood for good quality Italian food.
