I've been to this restaurant a few times and really like it. I suggest going when the weather is nice, when it's cold the inside is really too small to deal with the crowds they get. And don't go unless like I you love the smell of garlic, it will be with you for days.

This place is great. It’s what an Italian restaurant should be. They literally pack them in here. The food and the atmosphere are great. Giant portions great service is the norm. We were visiting Bethlehem and we liked the place so much, we went back the next night. On our first night my wife and I shared an antipasto. My... More

Our group of four really enjoyed our meal here and our service from "Nathan." The small restaurant was packed and we were lucky to get the only free table. Upon arrival we were quickly greeted by Nathan with a delicious basket of hot garlic mini loaves. He explained the restaurant is BYOB but offered us a complimentary glass of wine,... More

8 of us had a 6:pm reservation. The food was mediocre at best. The waiter put the check on the table at 7:15 and they were practically ushering us out. We said that we would like coffee and dessert but we were told that they were too busy and could take what we wanted to go. We were shocked. As... More

Just finished dinner at Mama Nina's in Bethlehem, PA. Small little Italian restaurant with outdoor seating weather permitting. We had reservations for 6:30 but had to wait 20 minutes for our table to be ready. Nice cool night outside though so we made the most of it while waited for the rest of our party. We were seated downstairs which... More

My husband and I were just wandering the main street in Bethlehem (the same road as the Hotel Bethlehem) and we came across this restaurant. It is small inside but they double their eating space with their outside seating. It was a little too cold on the night we went but it was later so the inside was fine. The... More

Small,very popular restaurant right on Main Street. BYOB,but my cousin thought to bring a bottle of wine. Small menu,but BIG portions and served very quickly and attentively. Cute atmosphere and very delicious food. Parking is a little tight on the street,but there was a parking garage within a quick walk from Mama Ninas. Fun place!

What a wonderful place! Great food, wonderful service, but it was so busy we had to sit in the basement, no windows!! Will go back, hopefully soon!! We were there for a birthday, then a bachelorette party was seated next to us. Not much room when they arrived.

We were looking for a place to take my mother in law who is a picky eater and thought that Italian was a good option, we live a few blocks away and never visited this place as it is always busy. I'm glad that this Tuesday was the exception, outside was full and we were probably the only ones inside.... More
