After being a little disappointed last month, we were a bit hesitant to try Mama's again, but since we have loved it for years, we decided to give it another chance! Glad we did because we loved it as usual. Atmosphere was great, service friendly, food was amazing, and the portions were perfect...just as we had experienced in the past. Mama's has totally redeemed itself in our last visit, and we'll happily return!

OMG! Where to start? If you love italian, this is the best around. Fresh homemade pasta to die for and their alfredo sauce is the bomb! Whenever I'm in town it is a "MUST GO"! Staff is always pleasant and servers are always on top of things.

This has been my husbands and my favorite lunch spot for about 5 years. We try to go at least once a month. Their specials are super and their soups are the best any where. Paula is the best hostess in Wisconsin!

Five of us have made it a tradition to have a 7 PM dinner here on New Year's Eve for many years. Mama Maria's did not disappoint us in 2012. The special menu for holidays is always full of special variety as well as traditional standbys. Our great meals and excellent service promise to keep us coming back.

niente di speciale is Italian for nothing special and for those of us in the metro area who include Hudson as a little piece of the metro area, non vale l'unità can be translated to, not Worth the drive. The Gnaw Blog paid a visit to Mama Maria's in North Hudson after several readers asked us to do so. I'm going to be perfectly honest with my readers... It's not that great!

The first thing I noticed was that the place looked identical inside to an Olive Garden, not so original if you ask me. It wasn't a complete duplicate, but too many similarities. As I started to read through the menu, it was apparent that there wasn't much thought put into the menu. There just wasn't a lot of things that popped out at me to make me think, "man do I want to try that!" I did find something that I thought may taste good called, Canneloni Classico - fresh pasta sheets rolled around seasoned pork, spinach, ham, ricotta and mozzarella cheese then baked and topped with our rich tomato meat sauce or our parmesan cream sauce (I mixed the two sauces). To my surprise, it was actually pretty good, but here comes another complaint...

For the money, the portions are far too small and I've been to plenty of Italian restaurants and have never left without leftovers, but for the first time, I did! For some people that's not a big deal, but for me it is, because leaving and feeling unsatisfied and still hungry isn't always a good thing. My wife ordered their Spaghetti Salsicci - spaghetti topped with our rich meat sauce, onions, mushrooms, mild Italian sausage, basil and garlic then baked with mozzarella cheese. I'm sorry, but I've made better sauce myself at home and I'm not even a chef at a restaurant and describing your sauce as a rich tomato meat sauce is not even close! I however would describe it as a, bland and water downed meatless flavored sauce. Thankfully, they put some seasoned pork into the dish, otherwise I would have probably told her to send it back and to please find a bottle of Classico or Trader Joe's Rustico Sauce instead!

I think I'll wait for August and September to roll around to get the all-you-can-eat special at Olive Garden or make a trip to Inonni so I can have one of the, if not the best spaghetti dishes I've had. Maybe make a trip to my Alma mater for their famous sgedd's... That's right, my old stomping grounds made some of the best spaghetti known to man kind and anyone who has had the privilege of eating this stuff knows just how good it really is.
