Stopped by on a weeknight because my wife didn't feel like cooking. The foods we selected were all good hearty Italian cooking. Got enough food to feed a family of four for two nights! Salad was really good but didn't hold up for the second day for some reason. Will definitely return and may take advantage of the catering services... More

Gave this place a shot based on the reviews. Note: do not expect a traditional sit-down Italian dining experience. You order your food at the counter, and pick up your plate when your number is called (so grab a seat first). Because I prefer a low-carb diet, I ordered the chicken scampi with sautéed veggies instead of pasta... they served... More

At the corner of a strip mall this little place for traditional Italian food sits. Do not let the Cafeteria style taint your thoughts. They have some very inventive and delicious dishes. Don't forget a cannoli.

This is an very informal restaurant. You order at the front, seat yourself and wait for your number to be called. There is a large variety of food from pizza to pasta, meat and fish entrees. All portions are generous and very good. Laid back atmosphere and a great place to bring kids or a groups of friends.

The food was good, the people were nice, the price was reasonable. What more could you ask for? It is a casual place. You order and are given a number, sit and wait on great food. It is kind of help yourself so do just that. We didn't get pizza but next time we will. Everyone else around us did... More

We were meeting friends encounter to the airport and needed someplace close to BWI that had simple, fresh fare with a lot of variety. This place fit the need. It's cafeteria style was great, with no waitress to wait to order. The kitchen was wide open so you can see the crew working (and how clean everything is). The food... More

So we read the reviews and decided since we were within walking distance from our hotel, to mosey over. We were ready for the self serve. Saved money on a tip. Liked the kitchen style, easy to see how spotless it was. The salads were very fresh and crisp. That being said just know the salad comes with a very... More

Amazing food, great price, quick service. Not your typical restaurant as you will order everything first and they call your number then pick up your great food. No servers.... but works great....... You will love it

My wife and I tried this recently as it is near my mother's house. She had stuffed shells and I had chicken parm. We shared mozzarella sticks and they were very good and the sauce was delicious! My chicken was very flavorful and my wife's shells were awesome. This place reminded me of our local Italian markets where you place... More

I was in town for just four days and three nights on business. I used to live in the Hanover-Severn area and frequented Cantina Mamma Lucia for dinner with my wife. I am still signed up for their loyalty program, even though we had to move out of state and occasionally travel back to the area on business. I ate... More
