“Mamma Yumma's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Homemade recipes and the Eggplant Parm, salads, pizzas, are amazing. Not to much there thats not likeable. Always busy which is a good sign. Worth the try!

“a nice local restuarant--bring the teens”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

This is a bit off the main highway, but an interesting choice if you are staying in Cookeville for the night. Locally owned, non-chain, freshly prepared Italian food, large portions, reasonably priced. We thought the marinara sauce was a bit heavy on the garlic and tasted a bit of tomato paste, but the overall experience was satisfactory. Would be a great place to bring the family--particularly if you are feeding teenagers with large appetites.

“Real Italian, fairly slow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

Everything is made from scratch so be prepared to wait. It'll be worth it. I have a hard time getting past the Stromboli on the menu, but everything's good. The tables are covered in magazine clippings from the old country and I like to sit a different tables to read new stuff. See it at http://www.mammarosasitalian.com/

“I will never eat there again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012

There was a little girl walking on the counter where people eat. i asked if it was going to be wiped down because no one seemed to care. I was then cursed at and thrown out because of this.
