We had a really nice birthday dinner at Mama Ricotta's. We were able to sit in a quiet corner on the newly enclosed porch, which was great especially as my son gets very nervous around others during these COVID times. The food was delicious, especially the goat cheese appetizer, and the waitress was very helpful.
Always excellent food. Never been disappointed.
As always food was wonderful. Hot, flavorful and prepared as requested.
Everything was excellent
The service was amazing and the food was even better! Definitely would recommend!
We now understand why this place has been such a staple for Italian food in Charlotte. Delicious food, friendly staff!
This place is a QC classis and is just as good, if not better! If you like Southern Italian, it's a must!
Everything was ok, not bad but room for improvement. Service could have been a lot faster in some areas. Lot of food for the money. During covid so it’s not like it was slammed.
We went for my sister's birthday and it was such a great choice. The food was fabulous and service was top notch!
Date Night w the Ex wife
Great food and service! Our go-to for birthday dinners with family.
This was our first visit and won’t be the last!! Food was SO delicious, I wish we could have tried everything on the menu! We also had a bottle of the Le Volte which was also delicious and I definitely recommend!
Our server, Hunter, was amazing and the food was great, as always.
Incredible service and the best food, as always! We love this place for both a casual night out and special occasion.
Great food and service and environment every time. They have it down to a science at this place. You won’t leave disappointed.
Unfortunately I received a call and had to leave before we started our meal. Our waiter accommodated our request to change to take out and quickly took care of our meals. The service was fantastic, as was our meal when we had a chance to eat. I hope to return to enjoy the meal in the restaurant.
Fabulous food! We've been there several times and have never been disappointed! Lasagna, angel hair pasta, pork chops, soup, salad, meatballs have all been delicious!!! Excellent service too!!!
Great service, great food as always. Our waitress was very attentive and gave great suggestions on our meal choices and dessert. We will definitely be back.
Great authentic Italian food with great service and nice atmosphere, definitely a hidden gem in Charlotte
Fantastic service was exceptional
Food was great! Service was amazing and so friendly but not overbearing.
Food was delicious, great portions, and the service was fast. Had a very authentic vibe... will definitely go back.
Took a colleague to lunch for her birthday...nice setting, easy to talk across the table and the food was excellent. We took the server's advise and ordered the Special of the dat, Grilled Chicken on Rigatoni with Light Pesto, grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and fresh Cracked Pepper, it was rather light and quite delicious. We will definitely go again.
This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Charlotte! Highly recommend
I’d eat here every night if I could!!!
Very tasty, make reservations in advance. Fantastic meatballs, pasta and don’t underestimate a good salad!
Have always love mama ricottas’s. Food is always amazing and just a great place to spend an evening with friends. This visit did not disappoint. Paige did a wonderful job serving our table
We went to Mama Ricotta’s for my daughters 16th birthday. The food was FANTASTIC! Everything we ordered was amazing. From the garlic bread & mussels for starters (FYI every basket of bread is 12.95!) to the lasagne, chicken parm, and ravioli. Every dish was a home run! My husband is a NY Italian and dinner at Mama Ricotta’s was like having Sunday dinner at his grandmothers house. Delicious and authentic. I can’t wait to come back!
The waiter was great
Service was great! Food was delicious with fresh ingredients ~ awesome in every way. We split the chicken parm with basil mash. Also had the bruschetta! Sangria was great too :)
The overall experience was delightful. The food delicious and the service five star.
Great service! Don't miss the desert. Very generous portions of all dishes.
I always have a great meal at Mama's. The penne alla vodka with sausage is my new favorite! I have been going to Mama Ricotta's since 1996, so I am a huge fan. I wish they would have a location at Lake Norman. I drive in just to eat there.
Dined here for our 18th wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint. Some of the best Italian food we’ve had in a long time, amazing atmosphere, and great service.
Great food and service as always!
Fabulous as always! Celebrated my birthday at Mama Ricotta's (it's a tradition)! Great food!
Diners were kept far enough apart to feel safe. Service was quick and efficient.
Very delicious meals and excellent service!
Their pasta and the service were both impeccable! A great place for lunch AND dinner!
This place was absolutely fantastic. The prices are reasonable and you get more than enough for what you pay for. We had Ben as our server and he was outstanding. This is definitely a place to continue going back to.
