We live in Bethlehem and go to Mamma Nina's often. There are many other good Italian restaurants in the area but Mamma Nina's outshines them all. It's B.Y.O.B but they offer a complimentary glass of wine. Upon sitting down you will be given garlic knots drenched in fresh garlic and butter. The staff is friendly, the food is fresh and... More

Mam Nina's is always jam-packed. If you like crowds and lots of noise, this is the place for you. Food is okay.

The menu has a little bit of everything and it is all good. They serve some of the freshest salads around. The place is very small, though, and that is why I don't go there very often. I went there with friends in the winter once, and everytime someone came in, The cold air and wind blew through the whole... More

This was our first visit to Mama Nina and the food was great. If I had one somewhat negative it's the small somewhat cramped seating area. We had a table for two, and it was so small that the waitress had to warn us our dinners were coming, so we could finish our salad. No room on the table for... More

Very large portions are the highlight of this restaurant. Above average taste. Experience would have been better if the waitress at least acted like she wanted to be there. Seem bothered to deal with us. Owner walks around but does not interact with customers. He may want to mingle and offer suggestions from the menu. Won't go back.

This place was highly recommended by strangers we met on a weekend trip to PA. I'm so glad we went here! When you think of a downhome, quintessentially italian restaurant THIS is what i picture. very cozy, small and warm, darkly lit and unequivocally romantic, i would come back here again in a heartbeat. I wasn't super starved but our... More

I have to say, I have been going there for a long time, but the past few times I was there, I was not impressed, quite disappointed actually. The food is really nothing to write home about... nothing special, nothing that makes them stand out. That was probably my last trip there...sorry.

I have dined here several times over the past few years and the food and service is always very good. The restaurant is rather small so the seating arrangements are crowded and it can be a bit loud.They offer a large traditional Italian menu with many daily specials including very good thin crust New York style brick oven pizza with...

Mama Nina's offer competent, traditional Italian food, but there are other restaurants in the area that do Italian food just as well as better for less hassle. This restaurant is always packed, and there's no waiting area, so if you're seated near the front, you feel crowded by newcomers. We ate in the basement once, and it was dreadful, mostly... More
