The restaurant is in a nondescript strip mall. The decor inside is so so. But the food more than makes up for the ambience.

This is a reasonably priced family Italian restaurant. While it's not the best Italian restaurant in the area, the food is decent, and waitstaff are friendly and helpful.

This little gem will always delight your taste buds. You literally can't go wrong with anything you order.... quality food all around. The people are always friendly. Service is not the quickest... but in a restaurant like Mama Susanna's, there is no reason to rush.

We went there with a Full Dinner Groupon for 2 and I have to say we were impressed. Friendly family service, great choices with authentic taste! Even without the Groupon it is a great place to go!
