We were in LA only one night before our flight the next morning. We were in the mood for Italian and our hotel recommended Mama D's. The food was really good and the service was exceptional. Our waitress heard that we were new patrons and she brought us a couple of ravioli to try since it is kind of a specialty for them. After dinner, we got complimentary chocolate chip cookies. Just the right amount of sweet to balance the sauce. We really liked it here and would go back and recommend it to others. It is small and a bit loud I admit, but we weren't looking for a quiet romantic night.

Nice little Italian restaurant in Manhattan Beach. Food was delicious and staff so friendly. Atmosphere was good but it was a bit loud.

We stumbled on this restaurant on this busy strip because they had a server with a plateful of shrimp scampi outside! It's loud the moment you walk in - but the fun family loud atmosphere! Our server was patient and easy going since it was our first time in the area! We decided on the lobster cakes - get it if you like spiced up - it's a appetizer but good for dinner as well, then we ordered a bowl of clams! Together with their house bread, it was perfect to dip into the clam sauce! The kitchen heard it was our first time to manhattan beach and send us a plate of gnocchi ! Wow! Awesome!
Overall, if you're in a fun mood and want to just hangout and eat - good place to try!

I am in LA for the night and went to Mama D's for some lunch. As I was alone I chose somewhere that looked particularly friendly and Mama D's didn't disappoint! I was immediately welcomed and made to feel like a really valued customer. The food was faultless, the price reasonable and the service second to none.
This place is obviously owned/run by a group of special people so I would not hesitate to recommend it!

Visited Mama D's for the 1st time, very impressed by the relaxed friendly staff that went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Food was great, everyone at our table (of 6) had a different dish and loved it. Homemade raviolis of all different types went down very well...
Recommend this restaurant!
