“Marvelous Mama Mia's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

There was a group of us celebrating the coming Easter Holiday. One of our group had a charitydine discount dining voucher, which was eligible for use on Good Friday. We all had a WONDERFUL time, because the food is Fabulous, the décor is very COMFORTABLE, and the wait-service is GRACIOUS and ACCOMODATING. The choices offered at lunch were numerous. My friend, who was dieting,--- had a chopped salad, filled with ham and various veggies. It was a big portion, and,--- delicious. I chose a meatball parmagiana sub--which was excellent. Another member of our party had mozzarella and veggies in a pannini. We all tried their tasty soups--before our main courses. I ordered the pasta fagioli and two of us had the incredibly sensational lobster bisque. Two of us NON-dieters,--- shared their sinfully delicious tiramisu,-- and then followed that dessert with their EQUISITE ricotta cheesecake. Mama Mia's is a neighborhood GEM, that has consistently maintained an excellent standard. Our use of the charitydine discount dining voucher,---- made their REASONABLE prices----VERY reasonable. Their portions are so big-- that we each had a "doggie" bag to take home. I am ALWAYS HAPPY and SATISFIED whenever I have dined at Mama Mia's. We all love Mama Mia's cooking!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

As a local I have driven by hundreds of time with out trying. Friends took us there and it is a great casual upscale restaurant. The chicken meal was excellent. Great bread and salad. We had a error on the bill which the manager promptly corrected. We'll be back

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Typical american italian place. On the expensive side. The food was average and so was the atmosphere. I wouldn't return the next time on vacation.

“Different every time we visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

I am not sure how to review this place? We have had various grades of service and food here over the past 5 months. This last visit was the worst, the garlic rolls were dry and barely warm, our server forgot 2 meal items and other table guest were done eating before remaining meals showed up.... Server never smiled, it seemed that we were wasting his time.

We have had good meals and service in the past.. But it seems things are going downhill here based on our last 3 visits.
