We just came back from a trip to Little Italy in NYC, and we found this food to taste better and be more reasonably priced! The decor leaves a lot to be desired, but if you are looking for good food- you found it!

I reviewed TA to find good restaurant to bring out of town family for nice sit down dinner. This was rated #1 out of 44 so we decided to go. The atmosphere was not what I expected but the food was good and service was great. We ordered pizza and had regreats only because we continued to see delicious food... More

This place is a hidden gem--a local, casual restaurant with VERY good food reasonably priced. It's hard to order something new, because the last thing we had was so good we want to order that again, but when we get the new dish it too becomes a favorite. I'm almost afraid to write this review because too many people going... More

This was the first time I had visited Cantina Mamma Lucia. I went there because of the ratings I saw online and decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. I would travel 16 miles to get good pizza from another place that was not the Papa Johns or Dominos. Now to know that there is a place... More

We went here for lunch while on vacation based on Trip Advisor's ranking; we were not disappointed. I tried the spaghetti Marciana, which had a spicy marinara chock full of ground bacon. WOW. My kids were happy with the pizza and buttered penne. My husband had the lunch buffet and loved the lasagna and the penne with mushroom vodka sauce.... More

Stopped by after a long day working. Picked up takeout of a special crab Italiano. It was delicious. Tasty garlic bread too. The place was pretty busy, but they were filling orders quickly. The pasta dish and a side salad were $18.
