Description: Our restaurant offers an extensive menu for dine-in or take-out. We do have facilities for private parties. There are plenty of good Italian restaurants, but very few combine great food, friendly service, and affordability all in a comfortable family atmosphere. At Mom and Dad’s Restaurant, we put them all together, so you can relax and feel right at home.

If you are craving Italian food this is the place to go! The food and service are always good. Well run, family owned, you won't be disappointed! I love their Manicotti with either their Marinara or Alfredo sauce (sometimes both).

Loved the food and thought the price was slightly out of line.The calamari was very good and my wife's choice of Parmesan eggplant was excellent. I had chicken Parmesan and thought it was above average. The restaurant is quite close to the best Western Hotel and the convenience and quality make it a no-brainer.

Thank Jeffrey C

Stopped in Valdosta on the way to South Florida; the Trip Advisor reviews looked favorable, so we gave Mom and Dad's a try. Great choice!

We shared a bottle of Tierra Secreta red wine - very smooth and reasonably priced.

We each had a spinach salad with warm bacon and vinaigrette dressing - wonderful.

My wife had the linguini with garlic and olive oil, while I had the Spaghetti Bruzzi. We swapped part way through the meal. Both dishes were excellent. The only reason I can think of not to get the same thing next time (and there will be a next time) is that are a lot more choices to try.

For dessert, we shared a chocolate hazelnut terrine - also amazing.

Lest you wonder, we have no connection to this restaurant other than satisfied customers.

We WILL be back on our trips up and down I-75!

This is a great family run restaurant. The food is always excellent and everything is delicious. I wonder why anyone would eat Italian at a chain. The grouper is my number one choice followed closely by the lasagna.

We were referred to this restaurant by the receptionist at the Best Western Valdosta Hotel and Suites ( a very nice hotel, by the way). The owner greeted us and told us the restaurant had been established in the 50's, by his family. I ordered the pasta with meat sauce. It was the best sauce I've ever had! They sell it by the quart, and it's well worth it. My husband had the grouper, which he said was also excellent. But, next time he would definitely get the pasta with that sauce. The restaurant is very nice, with lots of ambiance. Our waiter was John and he gets an excellent too!!
