Food was delicious. Kat our server was very friendly and professional she created a great atmosphere for our business dinner.
Great food. The food has an authentic Italian taste. Like homemade food. Great service. Servers are friendly and very attentive. We will be returning and we will recommend friends and family to this restaurant.
Always awesome. GREAT waiter!
The food was really good. Everything is house made. I got chicken parmesan which was so good. There was so much food, it would be split level unless you have a hefty appetite. I always like Mama Ricotta’s. There is a reason it’s been in Charlotte so long.
Place was busy but not that bus. We had reservations for 7:15 and they accommodated us right at 7:15 pm. We did. It order appetizer and order main dish right away. They did not bring my food until 8:00 pm. Almost 40 mins later really! Next I had order pizza and as soon as I took a slice it was c I’llld felt like it was sitting there after the cook. Yes the replace my pizza but by that time I lost my appetite. Not a good experience for being first time customer. Disappointed!
The food was absolutely amazing!! My wife and I loved it! Our waitress was extremely nice and made sure we were well taken care of! Will definitely be going back the next time we’re in town!!
Always a great experience
I was so looking forward to lunch with a friend after your renovations. Our salad ( arugula w/salmon) was so soggy and laden with dressing! Not enjoyable or appetizing. A disappointment.
I left hungry! And not wanting to sing your praises. The wait staff was fabulous, though. I wish the food had matched the service.
Mama Ricotta's is one of my favorite Charlotte restaurants. The food is excellent most importantly. The ambience is nice and relaxing with a pop of Italian charm. The staff is very accommodating and pleasant. I have gone at both lunch and dinner times as well as special occasions (birthday, Mother's Day) and have always left feeling like I am glad I came. Lunch portions are smaller than dinner portions which I like as well. The lasagna is my favorite along with Mama's salad, calamari for appetizer and tiramisu for dessert. As a coffee drinker(without cream or sugar) I think their coffee is excellent too.
Meredith had great energy, and made me & my girlfriend’s experience amazing.
I really think Mama Ricotta’s is under rated. I am not sure which is better; the food or the staff. They are both great. I love Mama Ricotta’s.
Meredith was a great server and she fulfilled our needs to make our friend’s engagement special.
Good food at a good price. Surprisingly full. Prompt friendly service.
Nikki was absolutely amazing! It was our first time there and she made us feel like family! She made the entire experience so much better! The food was also great. We got a pizza and rigatoni and could not complain on both if I wanted too!! Dessert was bread pudding and apple crisp such a huge serving! Can’t wait to come back and try everything
For years we've been meaning to try this restaurant and finally we nae the reservation. Food was excellent. Chicken bianco was perfect comfort food for a cold January evening. Highly recommend.
Great food and very professional service. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys Italian food with a good atmosphere.
Great atmosphere and good food. Flavor was a little off with the chicken broccoli penne but never had that happen before.
Food and drinks were excellent. Wish there was more pasta dishes available other than that, it was great.
Consistent quality of tastes and smells, bringing us back and never disappointing.
Love the calamari Rhode Island style but they were out. Ordered the goat cheese appetizer instead and it was delicious. Ordered Vodka al le penne for the first time, added shrimp and it was amazing! Never had anything we didn't like!
Great food and service consistently. Really like the atmosphere as well.
Our waitress Meredith was a delight! The food was phenomenal. Can’t wait to go back
As always, mama ricottas has been our favorite Italian restaurant in Charlotte. From the ambiance to the food we always have an enjoyable experience. The food is just always delicious and that is after coming here for over 10 years we haven't had a bad experience. Service was a little slower than usual but there is a lot of things that are different now with a pandemic and all... thanks for always being on top of making delicious food mama ricottas, I will continue to give you 5 stars if I could give 10 I would ❤
We reserved on Open Table, as a Chrustmas gift for each other. Had greetings from everyone,right to a table, and service quickly began. Service was great, food excellent-as usual, a great visit !
My friend and I ate at Mama Ricotta’s for lunch. We had Pasta Primavera and a side salad. Both were delicious! There was plenty to eat with a nice luncheon price. We also had a very nice, attentive waitress.
The server was rushing us the entire evening. From ordering apps, to entrees and desert. We had to keep asking for drinks. Also the bread was not baked all the way. We informed the server, he took it back, and brought back another batch which was exactly the same. We informed again, and he just apologized and that was it. Overall good restaurant, but did not appreciate the server rushing us thought the evening.
Mama's is the best! I've been enjoying this restaurant for 20 years! It is hands-down the best for food, value, service, etc!!
The food was excellent. The price was incredible. Very clean. Can’t wait to go back and try different menu items.
Very good lunch
I proposed to my girlfriend on 12/22/2020, Tuesday night. The service was amazing the food was awesome. Even one of the managers offer to video the proposal. Thank you so much for wonderful food and a wonderful evening. The nutella peanut butter cheesecake was amazing!
Great food and get service. An amazing go to Italian spot in Charlotte!
Our server was very accommodating to all of our requests. We were out for my wife’s birthday and from the moment we walked through the door, we were greeted with “happy birthday” and just a very eating atmosphere. We have yet to have a bad experience here and will continue to go here for special occasions.
Was disappointed in the quality of the meals given the reviews
Absolutely loved my service !!! i would recommend this place to everyone !
The service was outstanding and friendly!
The food is always great!
Food was awesome! Service was great and our server suggested a great bottle of wine. Will be back soon.
Everything was lovely
We had a great time at Mama Ricotta’s. Food was excellent, wine was a bit pricey and the service was fantastic.
Great date night! My wife and I had plenty of food for another meal the next day. It was a great reminder of the experience the night before.
Loved it! Everything was delicious. Nice to get out to lunch again. They follow all the Covid protocols as far as I could tell. No reason not to go out!
