Absolutely the best Italian food I've ever tasted. Will definitely go back. Staff and owner are very friendly. You won't be disappointed.

“Delicious Italian!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

Food was fabulous and services was perfect. I'm so glad I bypassed other restaurants with a pretty exterior and went here - true, authentic Italian!

“Superior to any pizza restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

You know the drill. You don't feel like cooking so you order pizza. If you don't order here, and you live in the area, you are missing out. For that matter, if you want to have a casual dinner or lunch and want Italian food, this is the place.

How good is it you ask? In my opinion, the pizza is the best in the area. And we went there for dinner last week. Same thing. Great food. Great service. Nice servers. Outdoor dining if the weather is right. The place is neat and clean. It is a stand alone restaurant and not in a strip mall. It's all good.

And the menu. It's varied with a large selection. Pasta, chicken, veal, fish, pizza and byob. As I said, it is superior to any pizza restaurant in the area.

“The owner's pride is evident!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Don't let the location or exterior fool you. Mama's Pizza Grille & Bistro is definitely THE place to eat if you're in the Mount Laurel area. Please, please, please, don't visit one of the chain restaurants near all the hotels. Take 10 minutes to hop in the car and indulge in a great meal.

When entering, the pizza shop/take out is on your left. The dining area is on your right. It's small, but worth the wait. The menu is large and varied. You can get pizza, calzones, hot or cold subs, and many pasta dishes. My husband ordered the Penne with Vodka sauce. He asked the waitress (Katie was excellent!!) to substitute veal for chicken - Done! - no problem. I ordered the roast pork and broccoli rabe sandwich. Both of us ordered side salads. The salads were delicately dressed in a tasty olive oil/vinegar dressing and the veggies were crisp. My husband raved about his dinner and I must concur, although I'm not normally a fan of Vodka sauce. My pork sandwich was tasty and the snap of the sharp provolone melted on top gave it an extra zing. It was so large, that I had the second half for lunch the next day!

Let's talk dessert!! I had a homemade cannoli - the shell was close to five inches long and filled with a delicate ricotta filling that wasn't overly sweet. My husband had the tiramusu and raved about it. Did I mention these desserts were on the house?!?! The owner had come by to chat, apparently something he does quite often, and the next thing we know, he's offering us coffee and dessert - just because!!!

Some final thoughts....everything is homemade...everything! I promise you a flavorful meal. Because everything is homemade and made to order, don't expect a rush in-rush out type of experience. Savor it! It is BYOB. If you're not local, the owner will even give you directions to the nearest liquor store. The restaurant offers outdoor seating, weather permitting and if you're a train buff, there is a daily train that comes through about 7:00PM. The conductor comes in on a regular basis for pizza, as do the local firemen - both stopped in while we were there.

If you're a discerning foodie who abhors the chain and hotel restaurant experience, as I do, you will not be disappointed in Mama's PIzza Grille & Bistro!
