My wife and I have eaten here three times and aside from the food being very good is that the portions more than fill you up. Be prepared to take some home.

I've eaten at this place several times over the last year and the food is consistently very good. You have to know where you are going as this place is in a strip mall, south of the Carmax on West Broad. Very authentic Italian menu and excellent tasting. But here is a warning, the portions are huge! But the good... More

Italian food is my favorite and this place is GREAT! The rigatoni with vodka sauce is amazing. Great for lunch during the week because the portions are so big and the prices are a lot lower than for dinner.

I love going to Mama C's. This is great for lunch or dinner. I almost always get the shrimp and proscutti apetizer for my meal--it melts in your mouth. Get large portions so it is great for sharing with a Friend, coworker, spouse. Highly recommend!

We ate here with a group of 7 including 2 children. When we were seated the waitress never brought a children's menu until she was in the middle of taking drink orders. She proceeded to serve our salad and bread and remove our plates before our last bite was taken, and removed the bread from the table before we had... More

Bring your appetite and prepare to take half your entree home. Enjoyed the food and delightful server. Will definitely return when next in the Richmond area.

We took our grandsons here the night they stayed with us. It was a pleasure for all four of us. The meal started with a large, delicious salad served family style. There was also very tasty bread. The boys had pasta from the children's menu. I had a pork dish that had 3 large pork cutlets topped with zucchini and... More

Followed up on a newspaper review and had excellent service on a busy Friday night. More a bistro than an elegant restaurant, but the kitchen delivered two entrees that we had read about. One had a vodka sause for shrimp and tortellini and the other was cheese ravioli in a alnut cream sauce. Large portions could be assisted with a... More
