Been here a few times - always good service. Menu will have some nice specials. The food has always been good. I like that it is BYOB. Reservations are recommended as it is a small place. I love the bolognese here!

Typical Italian dishes, nothing experimental. This is a good place to have Italian food like Mom used to make. This small restaurant can be very tight at times, reminds me of some of the places I've eaten on Mulberry St. NYC. Byob

This is my favorite Italian restaurant anywhere! I always order the same thing, Penne Vodka. It is consistently delicious and perfect every time! My husband is a bit more adventurous than I am and he always tries new things. He always loves what he tried! The portions are huge, the garlic bread is awesome and the servers are always friendly!

Many choices of classic Italian dishes. You will have plenty for lunch the next day. Outdoor dining in the summer. Great chicken francaise and Gorgonzola salad. You won't be disappointed.

I reviewed Mama Nina's before the new ownership and feel I needed to write an updated review. My family and I would drive over an hour to dine here. In December we visited and had a horrible experience which started at the front door. I walked in past a large crowd to put my name on the wait list. The... More

Went here for an early Sat. dinner with just my daughter (party of only 2). Upon entering most tables were empty. Man told us to come in and then we were ushered to a downstairs room, it was tight, cramped, and smelled like a musty dungeon. I figured they must have reservations coming any moment for all the upstairs tables.... More

The food is pretty good and plentiful, tho a bit pricey. If you have to eat inside the area is extremely cramped. I find that uncomfortable so will only go if I can sit outside. (not possible in the winter). I took classes in the next door space and used to hear them pounding meat outside in back of the... More
