Victoria was out waitress, so amazingly sweet! The food was AMAZING! It was a bit noisy because of a baby shower gathering in the area we were seated in .
Great food, fair pricing, great efficient service.
It is always a pleasure to dine at Mama Ricotta's. Food is great.
Wonderful! Tables were super dark though..would love a canc
Great food. A bit noisy. Be sure to have a reservation as this restaurant is busy!
Would have been nice if the birthday was recognized
Fast & courteous service. Food is amazingly delicious and the house wine was very good. Love the rolls!
Everything was great. We had a reservation for 6pm that we made on OpenTable. Arrived a little early. Maybe 15 minutes. Waited for about 20 minutes then had to go check back in after we had heard them saying they had texted several people. We never received a text. I think they just over looked us even though we were sitting directly across from the check in desk. Anyway, once we checked back we were seated pretty quickly. No other complaints. We had a great evening & service.
Terrible service, rude manager, we generally dine here monthly but not sure we’ll return.
Reservations were for 6:30 and promptly got our table.
Mozzarella and tomatoes appetizer was terrific with the tastiest mozzarella you can find anywhere. The Rigatoni with Meat Sauce was delicious, could of used a little more sauce - just my preference and definitely add the dollop of ricotta. Pasta was cooked perfectly Al dente the way it should be. The wait staff was excellent providing very prompt service. Worth the drive from Denver for the best Italian around.
Food was amazing as always. Service was a little slow.
We have been to Momma Ricotta several times. The food and atmosphere are usually great. Tonight we were seated outside next to the door. It was cold and people kept leaving out that way. Our server for the most part did a great job. We sat and waited a long time for our entree. He came and apologized and offered the manager but at that point we were just starving. He could have offered to comp dessert but nothing. Will we be back yes but it wasn't the best experience. The lack of ambience and the wait time would have been a deterent had this been our first time. Also the food while tasty got cold ver quick sitting by the door.
Very elegant dining an atmosphere,
if you can get a reservation as this restaurant gets extremely busy fast. It's a must try, food is phenomenally delicious.
My Favorite Italian Place… food is excellent!
Great italian with moderate prices. A bit loud, but manageable.
Delicious food and excellent service! Timely service and hot food!
Ben was the best waiter I have had since moving back to Charlotte. Highly recommend trying out this location. The food is great, properly priced, and the service was impeccable. 10/10
My husband and I recently moved from Jacksonville Fl and we needed a great restaurant to celebrate our Anniversary. Our experience from from sweet and funny hostess that sat us, to the food that left us wonderfully speechless and especially our waitress which was simply amazing! Thank you so much and we will definitely be returning.
Great food. Reservation required
Our server was outstanding and attentive! Food was great as well!
Food was great and service was top notch. Was a great birthday evening.
The goat cheese and mascarpone dip was incredible.
Truly the best Italian experience I’ve had since being in Italy! The goat cheese dip was beyond delicious and so was the penne alla vodka! I highly recommend this place!!
Very nice place and really good food! Make a reservation for convenience and short waiting time. Must try Tomato and Mozzarella Pizza!
Was a wonder first experience! I’m really picky about Italian food and this is probably the only place I’ll go to from now on, so so good. Service and ambiance was great as well.
We enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent and the food delicious. Although it was dry crowed we did not have to wait one for our meal.
We will definitely go again. Drinks and serving utensils were slow coming to the table, but overall it was an excellent evening.
The food was awful tasteless and tough. I will not go back.
Amazing place to go to for good italian food and service. Enjoyed every bit of it.
I did not take any pictures since was warm lovely time to talk and eat. But next time definitely would. Loved the food and service was really good too.
Went there for lunch, we had lasgna and chicken parmesan, bruschetta which were so fresh and delicious.
This is the 3rd or 4th time we’ve dined here and the service and food hasn’t disappointed yet! We tried the goat cheese appetizer this time and even my husband who doesn’t like goat cheese really enjoyed it. I did an entree instead of pasta this time and the pollo bianco was fantastic. Despite the restaurant being packed, my drink never was less than half full and everything came out quickly and at the right temperature. We’ll be coming back to celebrate my birthday and my brother’s birthday in December and we are already looking forward to that meal with our family as well!
Great food and customer service. Definitely coming back.
The food here was wonderful! The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is very polite and attentive. I will say, in my opinion, that the braised short ribs were not short ribs but appeared to be a pot roast. There were no “ribs” in this dish. As a cattle rancher who knows beef, I would know the difference. It was prepared very well though. This is the best Italian restaurant we have visited!
Service and food was incredible. Perfect spot for a birthday date
Food was fresh and delicious. Would definitely recommend this
We had an excellent meal with excellent service! Very authentic food!
Mama Ricottas never disappoints! Pasta and pizza fantastic.
Beverages need to come out with any food. Our waiter brought bread and oil with hot peppers before he brought our beverages. I got some of the hot peppers when I dipped my read causing me to cough and have difficulty catching my breath. Not fun!
Always love their food and great background music. Can’t wait to return.
Awesome meal and great service. Will be eating here often.
Always an enjoyable and tasty meal! Service was outstanding also! One of our favorite places to eat in Charlotte!
