Love! Love! It is a great little authentic Italian place right in my own town. Love their antipasti salad and garlic rolls. We have had a lot of different dishes and have not found one that we didn't like. I can't name them all so you will just have to give the place a try!! Before you leave don't forget... More

Mamma Onesta's has some of the best Italian Dishes, It reminds me of Little Italy. It's family owned and their recipes are out of this world.

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. Decent service, gentle prices and good food add up to a spot... More

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!
