Had the Lobster Ravioli which was nott bad at all, had a drink at the bar while I waited for my food. The bartender was cool and polite and the drink was not bad at all.

We ate here while staying overnight in Valdosta. The food was wonderful, and so was the service. It was a well appointed atmosphere with great Italian food. They have a full bar, and the wait staff was very good.

My husband and I love to go to Mom and Dads for date night, as well as with our kids other nights. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is authentic. It's a white table cloth restaurant but still suitable for taking children. We love the Spaghetti a la Bruzzi, it's fantastic and we always have to have chocolate ravioli... More

Warmly greeted. Charming restaurant located a little out of the way. We were only in town for a day. Restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel. Nice choices on menu. Wine priced very reasonably. We had the lasagna and manicotti. You have a choice of soup or salad with entrees. We found the bread a little doughy not to our... More

My wife loves Italian food. So we found this place in Valdosta. Good salads. They had a wonderful tuna special. The eggplant parmigiano could have had more garlic. The waiters were super attentive. The place was packed so the locals know where to go.

We all very much enjoyed our food and the staff. We brought our 2 adult children along with our 1 year old grandchild to celebrate my husband's homecoming from deployment and the atmosphere didn't seem the best for the baby but the staff was very friendly and accommodating. It seems to be a perfect place for a date night.

As is stated in other reviews, this is an independent, family run restaurant. We were greeted immediately upon entering and shown to a table. Our server made us feel very welcome and highlighted the specials for us. We decided on an appetizer of muscles. Excellent and plentiful. The server mixed some olive oil and seasoning to go with the complimentary,... More

The food is awesome and the service was great. When I am in the area again I will definitely eat here again. Get there early( they open at 5) because otherwise you will have to wait to get a table.

Mom and Dad's is a family run, independent Italian restaurant. The food and service are average--better than Olive Garden but not great. The bread was below average--sliced bread just slightly better than sandwich bread--not the great dinner bread one finds at so many really good Italian family restaurants. The waitress prepared two dishes of olive oil and vinaigrette for the... More

Almost a year! That is from Cindy’s Birthday Bash, almost a year since we had been to Mom and Dad’s. Granted, the drive is nearly two hours from Ocala to exit 22 off of I-75, but we really had intended to return before now. Okay, we made it up March 30th and met Giuseppe at the door. Impressive shirt, Giuseppe,... More

Our restaurant offers an extensive menu for dine-in or take-out. We do have facilities for private parties. There are plenty of good Italian restaurants, but very few combine great food, friendly service, and affordability all in a comfortable family atmosphere. At Mom and Dad’s Restaurant, we put them all together, so you can relax and feel right at home.
