“Always leave this place so full!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

This was my second trip to mama Jennie's and I have to say both time I truly enjoyed the food.

Must try the buffalo wings they are amazing. The garlic rolls are a big hit. I tried the baked ziti Lombardo that was very good full of flavor. It's not a large restaurant and the atmosphere is nothing to write home about but definitely worth a try.

Our waitress was friendly and attentive and from what it seemed the other staff was equally good.

“Avoid this place - Fake Italian food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This place has been around for many years, but the food is horrible! I believe the original owners sold out to a white american who knows nothing about Italian food. The sauce is disgusting full of sugar, the pizza may as well be in a frozen box.

“Oh wow!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

Once you arrive you smell the garlic and hear Sinatra on the overhead. This place may be a bit out of the way or off the beaten path but it is a jem! This place is amazing. The food is overly abundant it's a great place to take your family or friends. The people are so nice to decoure is old-fashioned Italian. Try the calamari it's probably the best I've had!! The meatballs are terrific as well! We went as a family and we got to sample almost everything on the menu. We vacation in this city and we will definitely be back!!
