Went to Mama G's after a long day of hiking at Tallulah Gorge. Service was outstanding. Food was very good and large servings. Our party had the spaghetti, beef lasagna, eggplant parmesan and veggie pizza; we were all pleased and left with doggie bags. They have several menu options and a full bar with a few TV's around. The place... More

Been there 2 times, both after they rebuilt. First time was right after they opened and I assume they were just figuring things out because it wasn't a good experience but went back after walking out of Bella's and it was great this time. Wife got veal parm and I got the tortellini. The experience was so good I randomly... More

This was our first visit since we moved here. We were going to try it last year, but it burned down. It is family owned and has a loyal following. We went on January 2 and had to wait 10-15 minutes not because they were that busy, but I think that they didn't have enough wait staff working. The interior... More

This was our first time to Mama G's since it has been rebuilt. The new restaurant is attractive inside with a nice bar area. There is a large outdoor deck that will be pleasant during warm weather. We had no complaints with our visit...our meals were served hot and efficiently. There aren't many options for Italian food in Clayton, so... More

Long lines before and after prime time indicate that Mama G's has hit a sweet spot---but after several visits have not been able to identify the cause such devotion. Decent food--the bread (which apparently is a draw) is very dense and not that appealing.

Mama G's recently reopened. It completely burned down in 2015 and was closed for a year as they rebuilt. They reopened in October 2016. It has been totally packed since it returned; we went early on a Thursday night in order to get in. It was about half filled when we arrived. We were seated immediately and the waitress promptly...

I was so looking forward to Italian. We had trouble finding the restaurant. The GPS sent us on a wild goose chase. We only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. I ordered veal parmigiano and a greek salad. My friend had fettuccine alfrado with shrimp and Italian sausage. My salad was overdressed on one side and not... More

We truly enjoyed our visit to Mama G's. From the greeting at he door, our servers and especially the food our experience was top notch. Mama G's commitment to using and preparing fresh product shows throughout the meal. Homemade salad dressings, fresh rolls (soaked in olive oil and parmesan) Fresh Pizza Dough, hand tossed and prepared as if the cooks... More
