“all around terrible experience”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Atmosphere is non-existent. The food is over-priced. The clientele sometimes leaves much to be desired. The servers make you feel like you're an inconvenience, especially when they vacuum next to you.

“Good service and good food and reasonable”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Had a family dinner that was good and priced very reasonably. Four stars is a bit high, however, they deserve better then three. The service was very friendly and the food was good. Keep your expectations in check and you will enjoy your very fair priced meal. We spent $40 for a family of 3 with no alcohol.

“Good food”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

The pastas were very good (Shrimp linguini and ravioli), but the veal although very tasty was a bit tough and thicker than I usually see it.

“Two Thumbs up!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Unfamiliar with Gettysburg, we were looking for a place to have dinner that was not in a "Ho Hum" 'chain restaurant' but was casual, kid friendly and affordable in the downtown area. Our party of seven were pleasently surprised by the ambience and character of this restaurant in historic downtown. We had made reservations the night before, requesting seating that would accommodate all of us, one being a disabled person and it was ready for us the minute we arrived. Our hostess was immediately attentive through out our meal. Mama Ventura's had a large selection to choose from on their menu. The children's menu had a variety of choices as well. Everyone ordered a different dish along with appetizers, drinks from the bar and their homemade deserts. Excellent all round! So glad we found this Gem! Kudos to the Chef, hostess and wait staff for a most wonderful dinner. We'll be back.

“Not great- not worth stopping at!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here for dinner and were very disappointed. Service was incredibly slow and the restaurant itself was quite humid and uncomfortable. We waited forever to get water brought to us and for our orders to be taken. Food was fine but nothing great at all. I had the cheese ravioli which I thought had a very small amount of filling, my husband had the meat ravioli and our daughter had spaghetti. None of the meals were special or tasty. I've had much better Italian food at the olive garden! Ha! I would not reccommend dining here while in Gettysburg.
