We stumbled upon this place after our original choice was closed on Monday. Turned out to be a great alternative. The tasty hot garlic rolls started lunch off right- followed by a nicely tangy spaghetti puttanesca. My friend had a very generous beef sandwich with roasted red peppers.

Great food, great cozy ambience, what a nice evening out Mama Onesta's always is. We highly recommend this restaurant. Prices are affordable and cocktails and wine prices are decent, also. Nice wine and cocktails, great service as well. Reservations are suggested. And we cannot wait to go back.

Good food in casual atmosphere in downtown Lockport. Nice place to take the family for dinner when you aren't looking for something too fancy, but want an upgrade from counter service restaurants.

Great food at a reasonable price However, charging for each cup of coffee was a little over the top!

Family owned Italian Restaurant right in the heart of the quaint town of Lockport. We went there to celebrate my friends birthday. It was a group of about 10 and we left satisfied.

It was the best I have ever had. Everything we had was great. They also have a good dessert menu. Sara was our server and could... More

You can't go wrong with this family restaurant if you like Italian cuisine. Cozy and comfy. Staff is always pleasant and there is a nice wine selection. If crowded, it can be a little on the noisy side.
