I had a miserable meal. It was undercooked and tasted like raw eggs and took 45 minutes to get to the table. The waitress was hesitant to even give us water when we asked. "Is there ANYTHING ELSE I can do for you guys WHILE I'M HERE." When she came over after the meal and insisted that my meal be... More

We were supposed to go out for a lunch at a restaurant across the street from Mama Nina. It happened to be closed until 3:30. Instead of waiting we decided to try out Mama Nina. What a blessing. The food was wonderful especially the Portabella Caps as an appetizer. The service was great and we were able to sit outside... More

We dined on Thursday evening. It was a little early so no wait for a table. The outdoor seating is pleasant. Service was friendly and attentive. The menu offers lots of traditional Italian dishes. They are delicious but the portions are HUGE. Consider sharing. We are from out of town so could not take leftovers with us. Every table walked... More

Large portions, fair prices excellent food. Although not traditional recipes like I had in Italy this quaint little restaurant has great tasting American versions of Italian classics. Their stuffed pepper appetizer is enough for a meal with a Mama Nina's salad. My favorite meal there!

Whenever family comes to visit we always make a trip to Mama Nina's. Yes it is cramped but the food makes up for it. The portions are huge! Most of the time I could split an entree with someone and still have more than enough food. The balsamic calamari is my favorite appetizer. The food is very rich so a... More

I had the opportunity to eat here while visiting my daughter and loved the food. Whereas many Italian restaurants claim to be authentic, it's the taste that confirms it and this food was spot on! Portions are incredible and presentation is as good. We each ordered appetizers and dinner and took home 3/4 of each ... there's truly that much.... More

Had dinner there on a busy Friday night before 4th of July. There was a line of people waited to be seated inside but we took a table outside and had an amazing meal. It wasn't a hot night, lovely to be outside on the sidewalk, our waiter was superb and really seemed pleased that we enjoyed our meals. Garlic... More

Classic Italian restaurant. The pasta dishes are extremely overpriced but you get probably 1.5 lbs with your meal, so a to-go box is definitely needed. The food is good but nothing amazing. If you are looking for a secluded or romantic spot this probably isn't the #1 choice in Bethlehem as tables are very cramped inside and there is little... More

I love Mamma Ninas! My favorite menu item is blackened salmon over greens. The salmon just melts in your mouth! Other choices are excellent too. Love the cozy atmosphere too!
