“Perfect Family Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

The service was outstanding...wait staff could not have been more attentive. Food was served quickly which was a very good thing with young children. Pizza was excellent. We had a great time.

Always a great place for excellent Italian food where the reception is as if you are going to family for dinner.

“Good but not really memorable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012 via mobile

We were looking for non-chain food and decided to stop at Mamma's. the service was top notch but the food was so-so. One member of our party had the Baked Ziti. They said it wasn't really baked but more like microwaved with cheese on top. Another member had the Spaghetti with meatballs and meat sauce. The meatballs were good but the spaghetti was in dire need of more meat sauce. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara which was good and we finished with a couple of Cannoli's that were quite good. It could have been an off night so maybe the next time I'm in the area I'll give it another try.

“how does this place stay in business?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

the service was good, but NONE of the food was good. Not just mediocre, but actually bad. First a soggy, orange bread is served. I think it was supposed to be a type of garlic bread, but we couldn't taste any garlic. The oil on it tasted like the fake butter you get on popcorn at movie theaters. We ordered a salad of raspberry vinaigrette with walnuts and blue cheese. Way too much dressing, the blue cheese was tasteless; and the walnuts - chop them up a little please, and go lighter on the nuts. The pasta in our dishes was over cooked. The sauces were tasteless, and there was nothing fresh about them. I had a penne pasta with vodka sauce - vodka sauce should be spicey - this was bland. There were little pieces of sausage in it that might as well been rubber bands cut up - chewy and tasteless. The serving sizes was huge - enough for 2 people, but really, it would be much better to serve smaller amounts and use fresh and quality ingredients.

“Step up from a chain, family friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We were visiting from out of town and had three kids in tow, so wanted to do Italian without the large chain typical thing. For what it was, it was great. If I were looking for a top-notch authentic Italian meal in a romantic setting, I would not have liked it, but for good size portions of tasty pasta in a family friendly environment, it hit the spot! I will say, it is lacking a few small touches that could improve things - water being refilled without asking, fresh parm for pasta, etc.
