Diner Reviews
  • "Our waiter Joe was excellent and recommended a wine that all 6 of us at the table enjoyed. At $22 a bottle, it was a steal. I had the Pasta Giamberti which was done to perfection."

  • "Dinner was delicious;best veal this Brooklyn boy has had in Sarasota.Prices are fair. Although I question the $5.99 for the salad substitute and received such a tiny serving?That didn’t go with the rest of the meal.Service is very young and inexperienced.They need to clean the dirty dishes off the table and should have offered a refill on the coffee. The chef/owner works the room and was attentive,informative,and gracious."

  • "We have been there 2xs in the past and raved about it to our dear friends who have traveled quite a bit, love to cook, enjoy good food and wine. We ate there on a Tues. eve for a 6:30 reservation. Only 2 other tables filled that night. Regular, enjoyable to watch, friendly chef not on that night and one of the Savor Sarasota choices of entrees was no longer on menu. Our server was young girl totally lacking in personality. What really makes this a great place is when chef comes around to tables and suggests choices of food, wine, etc. Our friends did not say much as we were treating them but we were very disappointed and will not go back. Too many other good Italian restaurants in Sarasota with ambiance, and willing to please."

  • "Discovered this hidden gem a few months ago while visiting from Atlanta. It is at the top of our rotation of places we visit every time we return. The chef Gusieppe(?) is a pleasure to meet. He has a passion and talent for his chosen career. He loves to mingle with guests. The pasta is done perfectly, the catch of the day is fresh off the boat, seasoned to perfection."

  • "The owner is very hands on, friendly and wants to satisfy. Prices are very reasonable. The staff is very friendly and the service is excellent. Do try the cooking bar where you can watch it all come together. The chef is right there to make recommendations if needed. Overall, you will have a terrific meal at what you will think was a reasonable fee"

  • "Mama Mias does many things right, great food at fair prices, wines for casual diners at reasonable prices and as always a great level of service to their guests. We have never been disappointed by the dining experience of this small neighborhood eatery. This is not an elegant dining experience if that's what you're looking for, just a great casual dinner amongst friends. The food is always a highlight and they will insure you are very pleased with everything. The salads are fresh and robust, the entrees are plenty big and then some. Take the whole family and enjoy a great meal."

  • "Fortunately it is close by, a little local place that hopefully will get no bigger. The servers are VERY attentive and cordial, as is Giuseppe, the owner and his sous chef, both of which you can literally watch in action via closed circuit TV or just sitting at the bar (best seats in the house). Really annoying that they make great cooking look so easy! Everyone seems to go out of their way to please, especially serving up free and unexpected glasses of wine or a desert to die for. No question.....best food in Sarasota if you are serious about food."

  • "Oh Mamma Mia not only has outstanding service, and food, but, the food preparation is visibly entertaining! The food preparation is shown on large screens inside the restaurant, so the freshness, and every order made individually is appreciated. End result however, is the food is outstanding!"

  • "We are often visitors to Sarasota and never make a trip down without visiting Chef Giuseppie and his friendly team. Once again, he over delivered for the 6 of is on Saturday night. Unique, authentic and absolutely delicious Italian food. Every dish we ordered was different and done to perfection and his red sauce especially is amazing. In a strip shopping center but with food that is the best you will have eaten! Enjoy the experience and you will not be disappointed! And an incredible value as an added feature!"

  • "Giuseppi is a great host. The food is excellent, as is the service. It is a little pricey but not the sort of restaurant you go to every other week."

  • "We had the pleasure of dining here previously during our holiday in Siesta Key. This year we invited friends, long time Sarasota seasonal residents, to Oh Mama Mia's. They had not been there before, but came away wondering how they had missed out on such a great place to have authentic Italian cuisine. Excellent food, comfortable ambience and attentive service - we have already made plans to dine here again next year."

  • "We had heard from a couple in town about Oh Mam Mia's but had not tried it, so we used Open Table for a reservation. The experience was quite fun and the food was outstanding! We sat in the VIP seats at the counter so we had a full view of the Chef Urbano's skills. He is quite expert and charming. I like the family running the restaurant."
