We were hoping for a great pasta dish but the two we tried at Mamma Teresa's were kind of bland. Guess we are used to richer sauces.

I have ordered many times using the 'Skip the dishes' app. Each time the food has been wonderful! My father is a chef, so my standards are high. I'm pleased to have found such a great restaurant in Ottawa. Additionally, I'm grateful that they use the online delivery service (app). I use a wheelchair and getting out can be difficult... More

The restaurant is in an old house, the ambience is relaxing and intimate. The soft lighting was perfect, this was a family dinner but definitely a place for Valentines Day too! The food was delicious, I am of Italian Ancestry and this was really tasty. I ordered rapini (Broccoli Rabe) as a side dish which wasn't on the menu -... More

You will know that I give three stars when a restaurant delivers what on the menu--no better or no worse. I found the prices expensive for what I got. Had spaghetti with mushrooms for $24. Wife had veal for very little more. Food was good but not great. Service was excellent. I can get equally good Italian food for less.... More

We went with a group of friends to Mamma Teresa's. The venue is gorgeous, an old house converted to a restaurant. The staff were all friendly and courteous. But the service was extremely slow, taking 3 hours from start to finish. After we placed our orders we were provided with a basket of fresh white sliced bread and some small... More

I hadn't been to Mama Teresa's in a decade. The restaurant fell a bit off the radar screen, in part because the Liberal Party (who flocked there in droves in the 1990's and early 2000's) was out of power. There was a time when this was one of the few good restaurants in Ottawa. Today that is no longer the... More

Excellent selection of italian food, all the usual courses. The food we had was fantastic, good portion sizes and very tasty. It's an old house renovated into a restaurant, which adds to the ambience. It was very busy the night I was there but the service was excellent. Wine list very good, obviously slanted towards Italian.

I have never been disappointed by this restaurant. The service is always professional and the servers are knowledgeable and attentive. The biggest challenge is choosing only one entree. The pasta dishes are wonderful and I like that the menu provides wine pairing suggestions.

My wife, our niece, and I had a delightful dinner. Booking a reservation, to on time seating was spot on. Our meal was delicious, service was wonderful, and would recommend everyone give Mamma Teresa a try.
