We'd read the reviews and were determined to go here with open minds about the service - I think I'd describe it as efficient and detached rather than unfriendly. The service is prompt and assured. It's clear that a lot of locals frequent the restaurant. The food is stunning - we had the meat ravioli and the meatballs. Don't bother... More

My wife and I were staying at The Swope Manor (*****) and came across Mamma Ventura Restaurant. After speaking with some people who had just dined there we decided to give it a go. Frankly, we did not come to Gettyburg for Italian food, and I thought that any Italian restaurant there would not be worth a visit. I was... More

Found this restaurant just walking, there was six in our group. The homemade pasta and bread was to die for. My sister has celiac and they made her a gluten free pasta dish. The meatballs were very tasty. I had homemade ravioli which was light and tasty.

Very good restaurant. Prices were very reasonable and our server was extremely pleasant and helpful. It's right in the center of town with plenty of parking and shopping close by.

Found this on Trip-Advisor and believe us....the food was delicious and very nice environment. You have plenty of choices and a few chef specials to select from. The only negative is the slow service. We were there around 7:30 pm and there were three other tables with diners. We're not sure if the two wait staff were splitting duty with... More

I have reviewed this restaurant in the past and have not had the pleasure to visit lately until this past week, but it did not disappoint! It is one of the best Italian restaurants in the town. Their choice of main dishes, wines, and dessert make a good choice for any age or palate. They serve lunch and dinner and... More

We were walking in Gettysburg and decided to stop for a meal. We went into Mama Ventura's and was seated in a matter of minutes. I got the homemade meat ravioli, and it was delicious. The bread and rolls were scrumptious also. Paired well with a nice glass of Pino Grigio! Not to loud, and they had a beautiful wooden... More

Mamma Ventura's was awesome! We went there because we were staying next door at the James Getty Hotel. The sauce was delicious, it is family owned. The owner is from Calabria and his sister does a lot of the cooking I believe. There is also a bar downstairs, pool tables, darts, DJ, mostly college aged crowd down there.

It never changes. We go there when we are in town and have never been disappointed. Services is quick, friendly and you can't beat the pizza
