Great food, away from the crazyness of Arundle Mills! Very pleased overall. Maybe a little pricey but good service and this is where the locals go!

This location was very close to Homewood Suites where I was staying. Did enjoy this little place a lot. Liked how you order in the line, and then they call you up for your order. Was nice not to have to tip a waiter and to take care of things yourself. But the food was of great quality. Was fun... More

The lunches are popular, and the place has been upgraded since I had been years ago. The food is good, but nowhere near Mama Roma's Italian. For a fast, filling lunch, it is great.

Forget about being the #1 restaurant in Hanover, MD. Mamma Lucia's could be #1 in many urban areas when it comes to Italian food. Barbara & I had a layover in the BWI area. Along with my sister Lorraine, we decided to take a stab with Mamma. We were soooooooo impressed with the food. The restaurant in located in a... More

I had one of their lunch buffets back in 2011. And now in 2013; Wow, this place is different and better. The staff wear matching shirts, the place has expanded, and the buffet is better than before. This is not your local Olive Garden. To the owner, your improvements have made me a believer (I will eventually pick you up... More

The restaurant provides very tasty food, large portions, quick service, and very reasonable prices. I have eaten here many times and never had a meal that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. Wine is also very reasonably priced---not wine cellar quality, but very good for the price. It's hard to rate service, because it's a restaurant where you order at the cash... More

They have an impressive menu with a wide variety - it's a little over priced in my opinion. I don't like the order at the counter feel, but it does save money. I had the gorgonzola chicken with a side salad and wine and it was $20? I guess we are used to if you pay more than $10 for... More
