We dine here on a regular basis.
A restaurant that we frequent on a regular basis. The food here is quite delicious and we have never been disappointed. The Italian bread with "jimmi" sauce is excellent.
My wife's favorite is fetachini bolognse. I really enjoy the penne with vodka sauce.
I can assure you will not be disappointed.

Love this restaurant!
Mamma Lucia's is one of my favorite restaurants. The food is always amazing, staff is friendly and the owner is seen throughout the restaurant. Wine list is exceptional. Oneo fmy pet peeves is going into a restaurant that does not have red wine glasses and they have them! The pour is generous and fairly priced. Definitely kid friendly and the kids menu has a lot of options. Love this place!

The food is excellent. My son asked for a different sauce and for the chef to take out the calamari and replace with scallops and it was not a problem at all. The bread and diping sauce was fantastic - garlic, oil and cheese on toasted bread. I personally had the Capellini Adriacata and it was wonderful. The seafood was cooked perfectfully and the sauce was light and very tasty. The protions are large so you will no doubtly have leftovers to take home.

Don't be fooled by the location!
Olney is full of great places to eat and one may be initially fooled by the strip-mall appearance of Mama Lucia, that the food will be quick, pedestrian fare. Not the case! Mama Lucia is truly a neighborhood gem appropriate for friends and family gatherings of all sizes. Great portions, a substantial menu to chose from, and consistently friendly service. Worth the trip!

Good Food, Great Value
By no means is Mamma Lucia a fancy, pretentious restaurant. It's located in an Olney strip mall and looks pretty ordinary from the outside. However, once you get inside, you'll be impressed by the selection and quality of the Italian offerings. The bread and rolls were tasty, the salads were solid, and our entries (Ziti for my wife, lasagna for myself) were very good. The serving sizes were very large. We had enough leftovers to make another meal the next night. The prices were very reasonable. We've got Mamma Lucia on our list of spots and will return soon.

Yummy food; too generous portions
We've been going to Mama Lucia's for many years. My husband likes the pasta dishes which are so large he always immediately separates it into two portions and takes half home.. I usually get salads and vegetables. I recently got a special brussel sprouts and pancetta appetizer that was outstanding. Last time I had asparagus and smoked salmon which was great. Their salads are a good size(for me that means large). The house dressing is very vinegary which I also like.

A bit disappointed
While everything was outstanding as far as the dining experience, the hodges staff was a bit disappointing. It was fairly busy, but even with our reservation we still had to wait 15-20 minutes for our table. Not really sure why though.

Nothing Fancy, Just Good Italian
Mamma Lucia is not some pretentious downtown restaurant. No, it's just a nice spot in a strip mall in the Olney suburbs. It has a really good selection of salads, pastas, pizza, and seafood. The serving sizes are generous and the prices are very affordable. My wife and I both enjoyed our pasta selections and we'll be likely to come back again soon.

Friday night outing
We were up for some Italian food so we headed to Mamma Lucia's after work. Our 6:00 pm reservation beat the rush - when we left at 7:00 the place was very crowded and much nosier. Selection of wine by the glass is good, service is always excellent and the selections of lasagna and spaghetti w/sausage fulfilled our cravings.

Been going to Mamma Lucias since it opened. Some new additions to the wine list now makes this even more special.
