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

Went here on a Saturday night with my husband and 3 kids after a long couple of days. Pasta was good, and my husband loved his veal. Also got a cheese pizza for the kids which was good. The waitress was very good and patient as there was definitely a mix of families and people who rolled their eyes as... More

Many of the top "restaurants" here are actually ice cream parlors, bakeries, and such - so it was great to find Mamma Ventura's. After a day of sightseeing, we wanted a place to relax with a good meal. The food was quite good, the service fast and friendly, and the restaurant clean and comfortable. If you're looking for fine dining,... More

I don't have any complaints about the food seeing as I've never sampled anything off the menu. however, I will say that last night I had some of the worst bar tending service. I mean, this guy was completely ignorant. I get it, it's a bar, it's not gonna be the happiest place; but after giving the bar tendor a... More
