“Good place for a business lunch”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We lunch here a lot. Good place to have a short meeting over lunch. Service is good and it is easily accessible.

“Poor food, poor service, less than clean”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

The prices are about the only good thing I can say about this restaurant; but even though a menu is easy on the purse strings, this is no excuse for inedible food, waiting an unbelieavable amount of time to order and obtain the meal, or an oveall dirty restaurant. Enough said.

“Great lunch specials!”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

I loved the lunch options; 1/2 sandwhich and salad, or soup and salad, also they have lunch portions of pasta which are great portions for lunch - not to filling. My favorite is the mussels. Also, great salads and home made rolls. :)

“The buffet was great...”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

We have always loved Mama Lacona's. I miss the old place but this new one is okay. The food is still great and the buffet offers a great variety. I still don't like their cannoli's. They just don't taste right for me. I prefer them a little sweeter. Their are plenty of other things to eat though.

“Locally owned.”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Tasty food. Nice atmosphere. Great bar. There is a senior menu and there are often coupons to make this a good value.
