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

I've been here twice. The first time was a family pizza outing. The pizza was very good--not the best I've ever had, but flavorful, with plenty of toppings. I'd recommend it. Unfortunately, on the second visit, we chose the lasagna. This probably was the worst I've ever had. Bland, and drowned in a sweet, runny sauce, it literally dripped sauce... More

This is the best Italian food in Rocky Mount. Great outdoor patio. They have no bar seating though. Good pizza and you can order single size pizza.

My husband and I frequently dine at Mama's. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and it is locally owned and operated. The food is authentic and every dish is incredible. Among our favorites would be the Rolatini of Eggplant, shrimp marinara and lasagna. The cheesesteak special sub is outstanding as is the chicken parm. I would recommend this restaurant to... More
