“Very good food, noisy, bustling place”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Have been here twice, both times the food was really good. Be prepared for the noise level=HIGH. They do a very large, busy take out business, lines waiting for their food. And many times there can be a wait for a table, no reservations. But it's worth the wait. Had [1st time] gnocchi with bolognese sauce and a salad of greens with sugared pecans & gorgonzola. Both ample portions and good. 2nd time had cannelli beans with escarole, listed as a side, but made a great veggie dish; and fusilli with pesto. Would have liked a little more garlic in the pesto, but that's just me. This is a place that should be tried. It's in a shopping center at Marcus Ave & Jericho Tpke.

“Great Food”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Mama Theresa's is probably the best place for Italian food/ pizza in the neighgorhood. But you have to be patient b/c there is frequently a long wait for a table.

“Good Italian Food but More Like Cafeteria Atmosphere”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

We've been eating at Mama Theresa for years. They started out as a small pizzeria and grew to be a bigger establishment. Their food is very good. Their salad is very popular. The only problem is that there is always a line to get in and it is very noisy. They also seem to be bringing out the food quickly and seem to be rushing you to finish and leave. For that reason, we have not been going there as often for dinner. As good as their food is, there are other restaurants in our area with not only very good italian food but with a more congenial atnosphere. When we go out for dfinner, we are not only goint out to eat but to enjoy an overall dining experience and unfortunately Mama Theresa does not provide that.

“Small cozy italian restaurant”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Restaurant is small, but the food flavor is big. We go here often because the italian food is the best around.

“Italian home cooking....”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

This restaurant has by far the best soups and pizza as well as dinners for a great price.
The service is fast and reliable as well and it is clean and comfortable.
