Mamma Onesta's

This is an excellent Italian Restaurant with great food and great prices! You are treated like family. Whether it is your first or fifteenth visit , they always do their best to give you the best service , and huge quantities. Highly recommend it . Just wish the parking was a little easier.

This is the place to come if you are hungry for a great Italian meal. Their Red Meat Sauce on top of the baked lasagna or the Spaghetti and Meatballs are a must have if you like authentic sauce. Their Colossal Shrimp are a specialty you can split because it is so bountiful. The service is the best and our... More

White table cloth kind of Italian restaurant. Big selection of Italian cuisine. Everything that I have eaten there has been very tasty with ample quantities and the price was good.

This restaurant has good Italian food. However, the restaurant is small. The bar area is small, too. It is very loud when there are a lot of people.

Thank you for the review. Our family really appreciates it! The bar only sits 10 people comfortable but we rarely need more seats. The restaurant does get loud when it's full. We appreciate your comments. We plan on doing a lot to soften the noise. We recently added thick curtains, extra table cloths under the main table cloth. We also... More

Lockport has several quality restaurants, Mama Onesta's being one of them. Authentic Italian selections on menu, can't wait to try other dishes offered. Fresh dinner salad, awesome garlic rolls. Taylor was our server and she was great, very attentive with prompt service. We ordered veal parmigiana & snapper mare chiaro. Delicious meals with plenty to take home for left overs.... More

Right on Main Street in Lockport, it is family run and the crowd is there for a reason. Get anything and expect to be leaving with leftovers. Nice little bar if you have a few minutes to wait on your table. Make reservations if you can.

Came in for a late lunch after being at the eye doctor's. Saw other Trip Advisor reviews. Great price and service for the money. My friend had Chicken Marsala and I had the Chicken Fiorentina... Chicken in lite tomato sauce topped w/ spinach, prosciutto & mozzarella. I received three chicken breast filets. Took two home for my husband. Will go... More

Nice little Italian restaurant with white table clothes, formal wait staff, and ambiance. The food is very good, but not always consistent. I've been there for both lunch and dinner, with family and friends, and it has been a pleasant experience each time. The management is accommodating.

I as you may know am an Italian. If you want the best Italian food in the Will County area, the first place to go is Mama Onesta's Italian Restaurant. Not a place if you want run of the mill food but great Italian cuisine, I suggest Chicken Arrabbiata, the best I have ever had, also Spaghetti Carbonara, the best... More

You can always count on this place to be consistently good! And I love that it's family owned and operated! We love this place so much we have even had a few parties here( which they do on Sundays, before they open ..so it's like you have the restaurant all to yourself)!
