“My place for Italian”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

It's located in the corner of a strip mall, but the Italians have done a good job making it special. Mama's is the place where you'll find Mama nightly wandering out of the kitchen to check on the room. If you want good Italian and have to eat it in Bakersfield (sorry, but this ain't North Beach), then this is the place. And you'll enjoy spending every dime.

“Simply overpriced.”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Food is very good, but not sublime. Service is incredibly slow. Wine is priced astronomically for pedestrian varieties.
Uricchio's has better food, service, and prices.

“As wonderful as I remember!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

Since moving away from Bakersfield, it's been a over 12 years since last enjoying the wonderful food and service of Mama Tosca, and nothing has changed - it's still one of the gems of Bakersfield!!!
Tony and Luigi's personal touch is evident in every way! And it was fun reminiscing with Javier, a distinct professional!
I know one fact, I hope to return to this wonderful restaurant much sooner than later!!!
