“Nice surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Came here with a party of 22 as a last minute choice, and all of a love it! You go up to the counter to order and they call your number, nice casual atmosphere to sit and eat. Staff was very friendly, they had no problem unexpectedly handling our large group, and food was ready really quickly. Some of us had pizza, pasta, calzones, and everyone loved their food.

“Nice Little Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

Stayed overnight in a nearby hotel and wanted something other than the usual chain restaurants. Mamma's was recommended by the hotel staff, and it was wonderful! Portions are HUGE, food was really good, location was clean, and staff were very friendly. We even got to have a couple of glasses of wine, which was nice after a full day of travel. If you're not a big eater (or start with a half salad), consider sharing with someone else... We did manage to have dessert (although we both took half of our entrees with us!), and it was great as well! Not fancy, but quality food and reasonable prices. Too bad I don't live closer!

“Great option to all the Chains in the mall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

When I am in another city I really try to avoid all chain restaurants. I love to eat local. I was thrilled to find this place near Arundle Mills. After reading the reviews we were excited to try it. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!!!! You order at the counter but everything is freshly made and brought to your table. Nice selection of beer and wine. The portions are very big. I wished we had a fridge a the hotel for leftovers. Everything we ordered was hot and very tasty!

“Very good choice - away from the madness of Arundle Mills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Great food, away from the crazyness of Arundle Mills! Very pleased overall. Maybe a little pricey but good service and this is where the locals go!
