A mix - some good, some just so-so.

The spinach, chicken and bacon ravioli was perfect, but the beef milanese was drowned in sauce. Read more on my blog: http://theworldatoz.com/2015/04/13/food-mamma-venturas-gettysburg-pa/

My husband convinced me to dine at Mamma Ventura's, I am so happy that he did. We were warmly greeted by our server and received excellent service. Mamma Ventura's gravy (you may refer to it as sauce) is EXCEPTIONAL! I ordered the homemade lasagna. The lasagna noodles were crafted with exceptional care and the combination of sauce, meat and cheeses... More

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great - it was average. We didn't have reservations on the College's parent's weekend, so everything was super busy, but we did get a table for 6. Staff was friendly, I would try again.

It never fails; the place that you avoid turns out to be the best of all! After 3 days of visiting local eateries and being highly disappointed, we decided to try Mamma Ventura's. Having grown up in Italy, I have had my fair share of so called "authentic Italian restaurants" only to be let down. I read a few reviews... More

Loved my Eggplant Parmesan. Fried mozzarella sticks were delicious (and an 80s flashback). Husband's pasta was over cooked. Service was great.

We hadn't had pasta for weels and stopped here by chance. Service excellent, my scampi pasta delicious as was my husband 's Alfredo. Wam and cosy on a cold night. Beware - Getysburg parking meters need feeding until 8pm. We got a ticket after parking at 7pm!

We've been dining here for years and the ambience of the restaurant is nice with gorgeous tin ceilings. The place is very clean and you can even see into the kitchen. The food is decent but the service is usually slow and not overly friendly and the prices have risen to ridiculous levels. On our most recent visit just before... More

As local residents my wife and I brought two friends to Mamma Ventura's on New Year's Eve. In early evening the downtown restaurant was not very busy and we were seated in the more intimate front dining room. The decor is typical for an Italian restaurant with a pleasant, cozy feel. Our server was friendly, efficient and operated at speed.... More
