Not for Entrees

We ate at Mama’s on a recent trip South based upon tripadvisor reviews. Most of the reviewers focused upon the pizza which may be good but we found full entrees disappointing. The menu was limited, no veal choices were listed. The entrees were okay but only okay, about what one would expect for... read more

Mama's Italian Restaurant is my favorite place to go for great hot pizza. It's as close to NY style I can get for a small country town. When I first moved to the area I used to go to Domino's, but a friend told me about Mama's I had to check them out and was very pleased. The food is... More

I ordered a Hot Italian Hoagie with the dressing on the side. When I saw the small amount of dressing that came with it, I was told that if I wanted more, it would cost extra. The Hoagie was mostly just a bun with lettuce in it. I removed the lettuce on one half and all it had on it... More

We found Mama's a couple years ago on our way back from the Outer Banks. I hate chain fast food, and the 3 little kids were tired, hungry, and very grumpy - a perfect recipe for disaster. We found Mama's and stopped. The food was fast, friendly and really good. With a couple glasses of Chianti and dinner, we piled... More

Went because of good reviews on this site. Was disappointed that there was no beer special until I realized that the domestic on draft is $2 all the time! Food was good. There were no discount lunch specials. Large portion of lasagna with plenty of cheese and chicken parmigiana sub was good too! And we ate outside!

Having visited Italy many times, most recently in Le Marche and Sicily (this fall), we didn't expect too much from a place in a relatively small town in N. Ca. However, the house salad was romaine (and not iceberg), with grape tomatoes (not those cardboard ones) and even black olives - not kalamata, but still ... The olive oil was... More

The pizza here is delicious! The sauce has a little spice to it which is yummy!! We at in for dinner and got chicken Parm, which was very disappointing. At least we found a good pizza place!

Fresh, nice atmosphere with a fully loaded menu, never saw so many Italian dish options! The baked Ziti is fabulous, and the Carbonera is the best we have ever tried.

We loved the food and service at this restaurant. While traveling through Rocky Mount we decided to use tripadvisor to find restaurants because we did not want to go to chain restaurants. This was one of our selections and it had great Italian food. I have been raving (in a good way) about it to friends all week. I had... More
