If you like good fresh Italian food with generous dinner portions this is the spot! They also have a small lunch Buffett with good choices. Desserts are yummy.

We've been going to Cantina Mamma Lucia for many years and its never disappointed. Food is authentic Italian and always fresh. Meatballs are delicious, as is their chicken parm, and assorted veal dishes. Pizza and subs are also great. They also offer a buffet during the lunch hours. This is truely a local gathering place. They also offer 'gluten free'... More

If you are in the area and you don't go to lunch here, you will regret it. This is the best pizza and lunch option in the entire area. We stayed at the holiday inn express down the street and ate here, best time ever!

The food was very good. We ordered spaghetti with meat sauce and meatballs, and a special-of-the-day ravioli entree. We also ordered salads, which were large and very fresh. The house dressing was also very good. The dining area was very brightly lit, which can either be a plus or a minus depending on your preferences. The quality of the food... More

I travel to Maryland for business often and find myself staying in this area often. I was sick of all the chain restaurants in the area and wanted some good Italian food. This place was recommended to me. First impression was confused. I did not know where to go or how to order. You see there is no table service... More

Tried this little local place out to get away from the normal chain restaurants and was pleasantly surprised by how amazing the food was. Well priced and a more than generous serving.

We were here for a family gathering and come from an Italian background. My father-in-law (100% Italian) loved it! The pizza, linguine, chicken parm,veal parm, lasagna, and cheese steak sub were tasty and came in generous portions. The food was reasonably priced and we would definitely come here again when we are in the area.

I was surprised after reading the reviews to find out there was no table service. We were staying nearby for a flight the next day and wanted a good dinner at a non chain, had no idea until we walked in that this was a self service restaurant. There are two menus plus specials on a board you have to... More
