Great food for a reasonable price! All the food here is homemade and they are even willing to go off the menu and customize a dish for you. Although it can get busy on any night of the week, it is worth the wait. I haven't been disappointed with anything I've ordered here and my favorite is the Mozzarella bella... More

We dined here on a busy Friday night on a recommendation of a friend who lives in Allentown. When we first arrived, the owner attempted to seat us downstairs in the basement dining area....but it was not for us. He then cheerfully seated us in the main room in a booth by the window. Seating was tight but comfortable. The... More

Recently my wife and I visited the Bethlehem area and stumbled upon Mama Nina's. What a great dining experience. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with the menu selections. The restaurant does not have a liquor license. However, they offer a complementary glass of wine with the meal. Let me tell you it i truly Italian complete with all... More

Absolutely, loved the food! Outside seating and very great, friendly service! Located right in the heart of the downtown, historic shopping district. Very beautiful area!

A lifelong friend invited us to her home in Bethehem for a girls weekend. She went out of her way to bring us here for lunch strictly based on what she had heard, even though she never actually had eaten here herself. Four of us split a Caesar salad, crab cake appetizer, lobster ravioli & Carmel ice cream desert -... More

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
