As part of a family/girls getaway, my aunts, mom and I chose to dine here to celebrate my aunt's birthday and kick off our girl's weekend. We were seated promptly by the unfriendly, older bald man, I am guessing the owner/manager, at a table where we literally hit elbows with another customer. After our garlic bread and drinks were brought... More

Very cozy atmosphere, pretty small place with not a lot of room but comfortable BYOB. We ordered the regular calamari ftom the menu and also ordered their special calamari they had , which consisted of a balsamic vinaigrette on top. We were a little disappointed the texture of the calamari we thought it was a little overcooked and rubbery. There... More

We love Mama Nina's! The seating is a little on the snug side inside but the food is worth it! I'm not sure Mama's secret but I love her red sauce. Be prepared for whole cloves of garlic and dripping melted butter in their scrumptious garlic knots. I love to go on a summer evening when we can sit outside.

I would give this place a three. The staff were friendly and helpful. I order chicken in lemon sauce and it was like having soup. My son enjoyed his pizza. For two meals for lunch I felt it was pricey.

A family-favorite in Bethlehem. Let's start with the garlic knots; the bring them out right as you sit down and the knots are dripping with olive oil and garlic. Note: not for you if you don't like garlic. If you're like me, you can pretty much eat the garlic with a spoon! Their portions here are huge and we always... More

Met with business associates. The food was good and fairly quick. However, the wait staff seemed to have an attitude. In addition, they were unwilling and/or unable to split the checks among our party. Even the "manager" was curt when questioned about this practice. They did offer to split the check in equal thirds, which was useless given the number... More

My husband and I visited Mama Nina's to use a gift card we received. It was a beautiful night, so we sat outside. I can't say enough about our meal! First, our server was terrific. (Sadly, I didnt catch her name!)Very pleasant, very efficient, seemed to anticipate what we needed. Immediately opened our bottle of wine and brought wine glasses,... More

Although the food at Mama Nina's is good and we have eaten there numerous times, last night really changed our minds. They say they are open until 10pm. We were seated at 8:30. Minutes after our appetizer was delivered, dinner appeared. Minutes after bringing our dinners to the table, our bus person arrived with containers. He literally was trying to... More
