Our server was amazing and the food was outstanding!! Will definitely come back.
Where do you wanna go...I dont know, where do you wanna go...(in unison) Mamma Ricatta's. We frequent the restaurant, and each time is more wonderful than the prior. The service, if possible, is even better than the food. I never leave without my belly full.
My friend and I meet at Mama Ricotta’s once a month and we always get the Pasta Primavera entree and salad and split them. Our meal is always delicious but yesterday the Primavera just didn’t have a lot of taste. It’s like the garlic was left out of the sauce. It was edible but just not as tasty as it usually is. The salad was delicious. The service was excellent. We will definitely go back though as Mama Ricotta’s is our favorite place to eat!
Very disappointed with the service and food quality.
Food was fine but not great. Ambiance and deco is very nice though. Good place to eat but food can be better, we took an appetizer and it was just toasted bread and tomato sauce. Pizza crust was a bit saggy and not crusty at all and the white pizza of my husband was without any flavors very flat.
Food was delicious! Service was good except for the fact I ran completely out of tea several times. My bad for not requesting a table. The hostess should have noticed the booth was designed for people smaller than us. It was tight on me but my wife said she was ok.
Good was tremendous as always! Our server was good. You can tell they were slightly short staffed but she was still attentive.
Garlic knots were okay; bruschetta great; short ribs were amazing & the apple crisp was a lovely finisher. Service was relaxed and thorough. Mama Ricotta is always a tasty go to!
We cleaned our plates. I wished they'd acknowledged my boyfriend's birthday as indicated in the reservation though. We've been here plenty of times though and plan to return soon.
Five girlfriends went out to dinner before seeing a show at Ovens. We had the goat cheese and mascarpone dip that never disappoints. 3 of us got the grilled salmon salad, and I would have gone back the next day for it if I didn't live nearly an hour away. It was so delicious with the dressing, arugula, capers, artichokes, zucchini and salmon. One of the best salads I have ever had. My cousin said the pasta primavera was delicious, and my friend ate every bite of her lasagna and said it was yummy. I also had a tasty glass of sangria. Hoping to go back very soon!
Waitress was a little bit slow. Food is overpriced even being one of the cheapest ones in town they even gave me my pasta overcooked.
We had a reservation for 8:30 and I wasn’t aware they closed at 9. It took a while to be greeted at our table and we felt rushed the whole time. The food was okay, nothing to rave about. The waiter told us “I’m closing tonight so you can take your time eating” after giving us our bill immediately after the food. I hate giving reviews based on customer service because we should really just review the food and restaurant but everything added together was so average.
Great as always. Love the food and atmosphere
In a time where getting good service seems to be a thing of the past, I was gracious of our evening at Mama Ricotta’s. Our server did a lovely job guiding us through the menu and made a spectacular recommendation of adding sausage to my lemon chicken dish. It was delicious. She didn’t push expensive wine and was very attentive to my daughter and me as we enjoyed a sweet little date night.
Our pasta was very good. I would give our server a “C”. Our food arrived before our salads, and we had to ask for grated cheese, salt, pepper and bread.
Dining with a friend to catch up. Nice atmosphere - busy but not noisy. We had an outstanding server, Meredith. She was friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Our meals were excellent and the bread pudding I brought home was delicious!
GREAT PLACE FOR DINNER BEFORE THE THEATRE UPTOWN!!
We had dinner and the food was ok. The service was good but we will not go back.
Went thinking from the great reviews that they served Italian food. It is not. Tough dry chicken- my husband was sick all night. Carbonara was greasy & overcooked w scrambled egg- sad. Took way too long ( had a 2:45 reservation) & it took over 40 minutes. Were out of eggplant (????). Never again.
We spent the weekend in Charlotte from Nashville, TN. The food was phenomenal and it was very affordable. Must haves: lasagna, the Caesar salad, the goat cheese and mascarpone dip appetizer, and the zuppa del giorno soup. Would recommend to others!
best italian in charlotte!!!!! best meatballs!!!!!
Great Saturday Lunch with my 30 year old Daughter who
Was in Charlotte for meeting! We both enjoyed Waiter’s Service
And Delicious Italian Entrees(Ravioli, Lasagna) & split Mama’s
Salad. Mimosa & Bloody Mary good too!
Excellent food and service; highly recommend especially if you want to get a mile out of downtown/uptown area where prices are higher
Excellent service, atmosphere & food in a little strip mall that's surprising. Will definitely come back.
Great restaurant! Highly recommended. Shortrib is a must-try
I haven’t been there in a couple years and oh my goodness why not??? The food was absolutely incredible- like seriously! Our waiter and everyone we came in contact with was so kind and friendly. And our waiter was so knowledgeable and extremely helpful! The atmosphere was wonderful. And did I mention how awesome and authentic the food was!!! I will be back soon!
Incredible italian food at affordable price. Highly recommend!
Always a great experience! It was busy, but the food came out quick. Attentive service.
Mama Ricotta’s is one of the best restaurants in CLT. Never disappoints!
Great food. Our waitress, Ashley was very pleasant and accommodating.
Food was outstanding as usual. Thank not good things to say.
Once again, Mama Ricotta’s did not disappoint. Delicious food and great service.
Best Italian food around. I highly recommend trying this place.
Food was great, service was a bit slow for us.... there were others who came in way after we did and were eating before us.
Service was amazing but food ataste and options are mediocre.
The goat cheese appetizer was a great start. Also got the chicken parm, was awesome.
Be back soon
Excellent food quality and quantity. Great service and reasonable wine prices and selection
Service was awesome! Would recommend if you love Italian food
Mama R never disappoints us. We have a monthly girls night and the 1/2 price wine lets us have a very nice bottle of wine at a very reasonable price. Great food, great service.
We Love Mama’s.
