I ate here while on a business trip. It was fast, it was good and it was a very good value. I had a small greek salad, the veal piccata and a glass of the house chianti for $27. The veal was served with a very nice hunk of garlic bread. The veal was cooked perectly and there were plenty... More

We were looking for a place to eat that wasn't a chain restaurant. The food was wonderful and came very quickly.

Lunch buffet has typically a nice selection of pastas and meats. Vegetables, soup and a smaller salad bar. Their individual hot lunch dishes (Italian) are also pretty good. They also serve "American Food" (subs, fries, etc) , alas I never tried that. Dinner portions are huge, alas dinner is also a tad pricey.

I went there with some co-workers after work one evening. The restaurant is tucked away in what looks like a strip mall but it was only five minutes away from the madness of Arundel Mills and it wasn't overly packed so that was nice. The setup, as the name implies, is like a cantina. You walk in, place your order,... More

Came here with a party of 22 as a last minute choice, and all of a love it! You go up to the counter to order and they call your number, nice casual atmosphere to sit and eat. Staff was very friendly, they had no problem unexpectedly handling our large group, and food was ready really quickly. Some of us... More

Stayed overnight in a nearby hotel and wanted something other than the usual chain restaurants. Mamma's was recommended by the hotel staff, and it was wonderful! Portions are HUGE, food was really good, location was clean, and staff were very friendly. We even got to have a couple of glasses of wine, which was nice after a full day of... More

When I am in another city I really try to avoid all chain restaurants. I love to eat local. I was thrilled to find this place near Arundle Mills. After reading the reviews we were excited to try it. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!!!! You order at the counter but everything is freshly made and brought to your table. Nice selection of... More
