Our group of 7 had all been to Mamma Ventuta's previously so we knew to expect good food. We were not disappointed. But having Carlos for our waiter made our visit a truly memorable one. Not only did he provide excellent service, he also has a wonderful sense of humor and played along with our group so well, particularly the... More

The staff were so kind we did not have the heart to tell them that their pre frozen and cooked food was terrible. Too much garlic, old mozzarella and tough veal. I would avoid this restaurant but feel bad as the staff are trying, they just need training to cook the food from scratch and not frozen.

We had expected a slightly more upscale experience based on the exterior, but inside, it was a little bit of a let down. Food was ok, but average. Nothing outstanding. The next table over had fish with their pasta and maybe the fans weren't working because that was all I could smell and it made me nauseous the entire time... More

The restaurant describes itself as upscale. It is upscale only by its prices. The bread served while we were waiting for the entrees was the highlight of the meal. The entrees were frankly awful. The Primavera looked gelatinous and tasted worse. The eggplant was soggy and bland and the pasta it came with was overcooked with a tasteless sauce.

We haven't had dinner here for sometime. Many of the restaurants we enjoyed over the years have gone out of business and I am happy Mamma Ventura Restaurant is not one of them. Lately, when having pizza in Maryland the crust has been over done. I thought we were going to have pizza at Mamma's and we ended up having... More

Christina's desserts are the best. I should know, I've eaten quite a few of them! We would recommend the chicken Marsala, seafood over pasta, and pizza to name a few. We so enjoy eating there, it's actually more like visiting friends that we've known for a long time. Thanks guys, we appreciate all you do to make your customers feel... More

On a busy Saturday night it was busy everywhere however we managed to find a table at MV. Interior was nice but the heat was on to the point of uncomfortable. Service was prompt and efficient but not real friendly but we got everything we asked for. Our pastas were very good but in an Italian restaurant you expect real... More

Came for an early dinner. I had the special Vegetable Rissoto and it was excellent. Our server Carlos was very informative and provided great service. We have been here before and will be back.

They were short of staff but they tried their best and the food was good. The place was nice and clean. The location is very good, just a few steps from the square. No reservations taken for small groups like four people in my case and we had to wait about 15 minutes mostly because of being under staff. Good... More
