My family and I were there recently on a very busy night. The owner was incredibly accommodating and sat us in a timely manner. The food was absolutely incredible and the service was phenomenal. The only negative thing we could say has to do with a very rude and inconsiderate group near our table who spitefully overstayed their welcome and... More

Food was good but the service was atrocious. The owner stared at us, pointed at us while addressing the server that he needed our table to seat another party. They rushed us out and I will never go back. This man is not a restauranteur. He should sell before he ruins the business

Nice Italian restaurant in downtown Bethlehem. Bread is great (a plus), in addition to very good Italian fare. Second trip there, and would go back when in Bethlehem. Limited outdoor street seating.

A wonderful location in downtown Bethlehem. The server was well informed and helpful. Portions were plentiful. A garlic lovers dream.

I would not have expected this to be an italian restaurant if all I had to go on was the interaction with the wait staff and the owner. Usually your welcomed and cared for while dining at places like this. That claim to be italian (which I found out the owner is, not!) The owner was impolite (if not rude)... More

We went here after my boyfriend raving about how great it had been when he was young. The food was terrible! I got the penne a la vodka and it tasted like they had dumped a bag of sugar into it! Yuck! We also felt like sardines inside b/c the tables were packed so tightly! The owner is very unpleasant... More

Stopped in while in while in town to visit Lehigh University. Outside area was full, so we were seated inside. All area looked clean, but the deco was slightly tacky. We all enjoyed the personal pizza, pasta and a sandwich. We took extras home.

I was advised by a friend to visit mama ninas restaurant and was pleasantly surprised by my experience. The garlic bread I was presented with within minutes of being seated was absolutely outstanding and my drink order was taken within seconds of being seated outside underneath the beautiful umbrellas they have placed on the larger tables. I ordered the lobster... More
