Not what I was expecting but very good.

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.

We were looking for a new place to try and came across the reviews for the top restaurants in Hanover. No offense to the #1 place, but we wanted Italian and this was a great place to go. The choices are varied and the food is abundant. Even though it seems small, the salad bar is good. The pasta dishes... More

Suggest by a co-work while I was traveling, this place was fantastic for a substantial and reasonable lunch. Great menu and I recommend the buffet for lunch, fast and delicious. It was pretty reasonable considering you could go back if your first pass was not sufficient. They had a nice salad bar, a hot pasta entrée that rotates while I... More

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 - excellent.... More

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.
