Excellent as always. Compliments to the chef for preparing a beloved item that is off menu for 4 people at our table. Service was great as always
We had a great experience at Mama Della’s while staying at Loews Portofino hotel. Staff was very attentive and friendly. Food was great and prices were generally what you would expect at a theme park resort. The bread they give before the meal was excellent. That was our favorite part of the meal and we are still talking about it: rosemary bread and bread with garlic baked inside it. We had the gnocchi which was very good. Food was brought straight out from the kitchen staff and felt very special. They even split our dish ahead of time for us. The best part was the live entertainment. I’m sure it changes, but our night it was a man playing guitar and a woman singing mostly Italian songs. They went table to table doing requests. It really made the night special. The following night we went to Bice (another Italian restaurant on the proprerty) and we were disappointed. It was more expensive but the food was not as good and there was not any entertainment when we went. We left wishing we had gone to Mama Della’s again instead.
This place is overall amazing, and I don’t say that about many places.
Mediocre food on all fronts except for the bread. The olive oil dip for the bread was tasteless. In fact most of the food was uninspired on the taste front and that’s hard to do with Italian!
We were here on vacation. Great wine list and choice of traditional dishes. Food just okay, but service and ambiance makes it worth the trip. Plates are more than enough to share. Live music adds a special touch.
One of the best meals we've ever had. Atmosphere was beautiful and though entree service took longer than usual it was well worth the wait. They were also very flexible and attentive to dietary tastes and restrictions. Basically customized our dinners. Loved the experience.
Great food with a lot of options. Our server was outstanding and made great recommendations. Definitely a good experience and worth a return trip. Highly recommend for those doing a Universal trip.
Saved our Valentine's Day reservation for us when we were delayed due to traffic and kitchen was super-prompt in feeding us under a big time crunch. Top notch staff!
The food and atmosphere at Mama Della's is consistently outstanding. I've eaten there many times over the years and it never fails to provide fantastic food and outstanding service!
Not our first visit and definitely will not be our last!! A little on the pricey side, but no more than I expected. For special occasions, perfect!!
Excellent service from the minute we walked in the door.
From the Lobby greeter to the table service and the music provided at each table was absolutely wonderful.
The food was exceptional.
Everyone at Mama Dellas truly made you feel welcome.
Fabulous musical entertainment, and amazin lasagna!
Very nice restaurant - the tableside music was a definite highlight. Food was good. Only knock is alcohol prices were ridiculous, so we opted to stay dry (it is cheaper to drink in the actual theme parks!). Overall, if you're looking for the one decent and not quick serve meal at Universal, it's a good place to go.
Everything was wonderful! Just be prepared for loud live music from the roaming Italian band.
We return to this restaurant every time we come to Orlando. Even though it is sometimes 18mths between visits we are recognised + made very welcome.
Great Italian food, friendly staff amid homely surroundings
The ravioli and chicken carbonara were the best pasta dishes I’ve ever had. The singers were great when they were not right next to your table. The food took a bit too long to come so we just ordered it to go. Still - it was amazing. Overall a good experience and we will be back!
Excellent authentic Italian food. The chef prepared an amazing risotto in a parmesan wheel that was absolutely phenomenal. The waiter and service was impeccable, and his recommendations for gluten-free pasta were the best. We will definitely be back during our next trip.
My son and I visit Universal every year and Mama Della's never disappoints. The food is fabulous and reasonably priced, the service is great and the atmosphere is friendly. Definitely a step up from other resort restaurants we have visited.
Food was great, service was excellent. The strolling musicians were wonderful. Made this really special.
