The food was very good however the price of dessert was almost the same as dinner. desserts weren't exceptional. The restaurant is very nice and clean but cramped and we felt like the people behind us were sitting on top of us. Several times had to move forward to avoid pushing back on them. The seating needs to be more... More

Our server seemed to a bit overwhelmed, even though there weren't many people in the place. Tried to seat us back by the restrooms, even though there was plenty of room in front. Food was OK.

We enjoyed a nice home cooked Italian meal and a clean environment in the heart of Gettysburg, Mary was a very dedicated waitress,. We followed her recomendations and we were glad that we did.

We have been going to Mamma Ventura's for years and have never been disappointed. This is a hidden gem right off the square and they are always the best. Whether you order just pizza or have one of their special Italian delights, you cannot go wrong. The wait staff and owners are so friendly and always remember us! Order desserts... More

Not to be confused with Jesse's mom's kitchen, this was quite a find on an evening where there were prohibitive crowds at just about every restaurant in The Circle at #Gettysburg #PA. On a weeknight in early August, this was out of the ordinary. But glad to have found this small, quiet spot with a full bar and a few... More

We visited Gettysburg and took dinner @ Mamma Ventura; we ordered some house specials but the food was terrible and much overpriced; the service was also worse; a place to avoid with high certainty;

I try to give every restaurant the benefit of the doubt, but if I could give this one a half star, I would. I went with a party of five. Out of the five dishes ordered, no one could eat their meal. Venture's sauce is terrible. It was as though they opened up a can of tomato paste. It was... More

We dine in Gettysburg often since we live so close by and love to walk around town. This particular Thursday evening, we decided to give Mama's a try because of its lower price menu in comparison to other options on the same block, being a pizza place. When we walked into a relatively empty front room (they could have had... More
