Mamma Lucia does the cooking and her husband Claudio does the serving. Everything we had was wonderful and often different than the typical Italian restaurant. I especially liked the eggplant parmesan and veal marsala. Both were prepared differently than I had experienced before. Claudio loves to tell stories of his Italian home. After we ordered he brought a number of... More

We wanted some real Italian food, not from one of the chains ort Italian America. Well..... we found it. Handmade pasta. Every item prepared when you order. The best bruschetta ever for an appetizer, I had the Spaghetti Carbonara (not American style with peas, etc) and my wife had spaghetti Puttanesca. We shared a huge house insalata with homemade blue... More

Just go with the flow....this is true Italian cooking. Ask Claudio what you want to eat, then sit back and enjoy. Not your typical experience. This was our sixth visit. Never a disappointment. Don't miss dessert!

My fourth trup here was such a contrast to my other three. The owners attitude and complete disregard for our table completely turned me off. While I could watch him providing the service and welcoming attitude to the other tables that I had experienced before we didn't receive any of it. Even the food was mediocre. The clams and mussels... More

It's never a dull moment to dine here at Mamma Lucia's restaurant. We've been here twice and so far it is definitely worth going back again and again. It feels like were in Europe. Mamma Lucia's cooking is very authentic Italian food that you all should try. This is a family owned restaurant, Mamma Lucia's husband is very nice as... More

The food is really good and reasonably priced. In a restaurant with only four tables occupied we never saw our waiter. His best move though was after no chicken on my pasta after I ordered it was saying I took the chicken out of the order because you won't like it in that dish.

From the outside you would never expect the wonderful authentic Italian food experience that awaits. Each item is individually prepared to order, the favors are superb, quality of ingredients first class. It was our third visit this year and each one has been a delight. This is the best Italian restaurant in north Florida. Homemade, fresh, delicious ......also great wines,... More

Amazing. I have eaten in a lot of Italian restaurants and j just can't believe the food we had tonight. Everything was great. Four people. Four different dishes. Four spectacular meals. Really good. Lots of love in the food served here. No shortcuts. Can't wait to come back.

My wife and I have been to Italy a couple of times and loved all the absolutely great food there. And Mamma Lucia is the closest thing in Jacksonville to the real experience and food. Italians do not have short 30 minute dinners or lunches. They are not rushed like Americans. If you are looking for fast food Italian, go... More
