Had dinner there last night. Salad very good. Had the special with homemade pasta. I thought the pasta was great but the sauce lacked flavor. But then again when I've been to Italy I experienced similar.

If you are in the mood for great tasting Italian at a reasonable price, this is a place to try. Huge menu with tasty drinks (no IPAs) you will have a hard time deciding on what to get. Portions are large so you better enjoy leftovers! Friendly staff and quiet atmosphere and yet very family friendly. Can't miss.

I love this place. Old fashioned Italian fare, nothing pretentious. Lots of traditional pasta choices, a good dinner salad, garlic bread, etc. Save room for dessert. My personal recommendation is Limoncello cake. They don't bake it but get it from an excellent Italian bakery in Wheat Ridge.

This is a family favorite, and a must try in Arvada! I've been here multiple times, and every time I've had great service and amazing food! I love the garlic bread and cappellini christine.

My friend and I love Italian food. Several months ago, we decided to try a different Italian restaurant for lunch every Friday. After about 16 different Italian restaurants, Mama Sannino's is our unquestionable favorite. Its a relatively small venue with the most amazing food. Great Italian food doesn't require fancy ingredients such as foie gras or truffles. Nope, real Grandma... More

We were looking for a lovely little Italian restaurant serving home made food for our daughter's 12th birthday with the family. Could not have been more pleased. Food was great, atmosphere was great, service was excellent. They had no problem with our bringing our own cake and treated my daughter like she was a princess! The only disappointment was that...

Went to the old Arvada location a long time ago and weren't that impressed, but tried the new place at the Fenton address in Wheat Ridge and really liked it. Good simple food, large portions, and the service was great for our table of six.

Best home style Italian food in Arvada. This is one of the original 3 Three Son's from North Denver. if you grew up in North Denver back in the 60's & 70's you ate at 3 Son's for the best Pasta and Pizza.
