Amazing Italian food, loved it!

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... read 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!

Mama Mina's Italian restaurant is outstanding. The food portions are huge. I could have split the chicken parmigiana dish with my daughter. We ate our meals for two nights. Food served fast, hot, and delicious. I can't wait to go back there to eat.

The food at Mama Nina's is superb. Everything we eat there makes our taste buds and salivary glands jump for joy,! While I am partial to the wonderful Veal Parma, my wife enjoys the Eggplant Parma. My daughter loves the Lazagna yet my son is Spagetti fan. All are wonderful!

We knew about the huge portions so we had a plan to split 2 dishes between the 3 of us ladies. Each entree was $28.95 (not cheap) but the waitress said she would have to charge us a plate charge because we were not ordering 3 dishes! I was not happy & will probably not return. The food is good... More

If you like to wait for mediocre Italian this is the place. Sitting outdoors on Main Street is the plus but food is really just o.k.

This was our first time to this restaurant and we were completely pleased. The food was SO good and I had take-home for two more meals! Everyone ordered different items and ALL were pleased. I will definitely revisit!! And Bethlehem is lovely!!!

We've been to Mama Nina's several times before it switched hands. The food is just as good but it seems to have lost that warm family feeling when you walk through the door which is what made this restaurant so great.

My husband and I were not impressed even though so many people seem to enjoy it. I had pasta primavera and it was so bland. My husband just had spaghetti and meatballs and was also not impressed. The service wasn't very good either.
