I don't know how I'm going to tell my favorite Italian restaurant in Buffalo, NY that I have a new favorite Italian restaurant. We needed a table for 6 and there was a wait, but it was one of the nicest experience I've ever had. When have you been to a restaurant that provides a magazine rack outside and Howard... More

I have been going to Mama D'S for 13 years now and it is still as great today as it was when I started going. The food is great & I cook Italian food. There are other Italian restaurants around but they are very over priced. You get great food & great prices at Mama D's. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤ The friends I... More

Mid level family fare. With Mozza and Sapori close by no comparison. Sorry but volume does not make up for quality.

My husband and I split a salad and the Chicken Parmesan Plenty of food for each of us, plus some to take home. We got complimentary bread, which is delicious, and homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert. Our waitress, Brandi, was attentive and friendly. This is a place for couples and families

Went to Disneyland and heard of this restaurant through our hotel. Wanting to try a non-chain pizza place, I put in an order for pick up. When we arrived at 6:00 on a Fri, there were lots of people waiting outside... a good sign! Inside, it was crowded and I could see why. Fresh pasta, fun and clean atmosphere. Wish... More

Excellent homemade Italian food backed by the best service you'll get anywhere. I have eaten here many times and never had a bad meal or experience. Also a great dinner stop after a day of bar hopping the peninsula.

I visited Mama D's on the strength of good recommendations from friends. Whilst I enjoyed the food and atmosphere, I was looking for a more refined cuisine. I would say Mama D's is a great place to take the kids for a Saturday lunch, but if you are taking a date out for a romantic meal, that is probably not... More
