A comfy and inviting place just outside of the center of Rome. Very cozy and the staff and owner could not be nicer. The food is delicious and a bonus is I always feel at home and taken care of. A staple every time I visit Italy!

A great place to go if your a tourist or a Roman. The food is always excellent, the service is top notch. The Menu consists of traditional Italian plates as well as Italian-American delights like the scrumptious cheesecake. She makes us Americans away from home feel right at home just like a Mama.

This place is a "True Italian Fusion Bistro" just right in the Northern part of Rome off of Via Flaminia. There is easy access to the place by train, as the Labaro station is right across the street..not even a half a block away. You should call ahead to make reservations, as the place is always packed.

I have been here several times and experienced only the best service, starting with the owner who is a true Italian woman with a touch of NY class and charm. She goes out of her way to explain the homemade pasta's, the incredible mixture of Roman pizza's and great steak, seafood and chicken dishes cooked with an extensive culinary care and attention to detail.

The music is relaxing, the staff is very friendly and they speak a multitude of languages to assist you with ordering.

They have an extensive wine list and an incredible hot chocolate lava cake that is a must try....but I'll be honest with you....everything you will try at Mama's is incredible!

There is an outdoor patio filled with plants and a retractable roof for dining under the stars and fresh air.

Nice and familiar restaurant at the edge of the city, but well connected to the center by public transportation. The owner is Italian-American, so you can taste several American specialties and take part to specials during occasions as Thanksgiving. At lunch there's an €8 buffet, while at dinner you can enjoy the full menu a-la-carte. I recommend the potato-skin chips and the baked brie cheese as appetizers, but all the menu is good including pizza (this is probably the only place in Rome to serve Hawaii Pizza, with pineapple!). Personnel is polite and helpful, and in the Summer the outdoor patio is ideal to stay naturally fresh. As a cherry on top, there's a Wi-Fi network available for free use during meals.
