Mama Cucina wasn't really near our hotel, but since I wanted Italian and the reviews were so good, we decided to make the drive (only about 15 minutes). It was worth it.
We were greeted by the very friendly owner and promptly shown to a table. The server arrived quickly with water and was helpful in advising about the menu and some unique items. My wife ordered an appetizer for her dinner and I ordered the fish special of the day. Both of us were served the very fresh and crisp salad and the yummy home baked bread.
Our dishes were served at just the right time, salad was completed and a few, but not too many minutes, to relax between courses. Her dish was prawns with prosciutto and mozzarella in a butter-lemon sauce. The cheese was melted just right and the prosciutto added saltiness and texture. My dish was grouper with prawns and asparagus served with a side of pasta. The fish was perfectly cooked, juicy and tender. It is so easy to overcook fish and they did it just right.
Service throughout the meal was prompt but not overly invasive. Overall, a very nice meal!
