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

The night we were there the food was mediocre. The pasta was over cooked and I didn't feel it was true Italian fare. It may have just been an off night for the cooks, because we have heard good things about this restaurant.

We wanted to go here for dinner and called to see what they had available and received two different answers. The first guy on the phone said yes we could come in a half hour and then someone else got on and said that there was nothing available that evening. We decided to order take out instead and staff seemed... More

In their defense, it was a very busy night and they were short staffed. But that should not be our issue. While we were waiting in the bar ... with no one to pour drinks ... we heard and saw one pissed off waitress complaining about a customer. Then we sit down and are told by another employee that they... More

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
