Penne alla Vodka
Penne pasta tossed with sautéed pancetta in a pepper vodka, spicy tomato cream sauce
Southern italian style lasagna made with layers of ground beef, veal, homemade sausage and a blend of three cheeses
Crispy calamari served with a charred tomato aioli or Rhode Island-Style, tossed in garlic, spicy cherry & pepperoncini peppers
This is a restaurant that is locally owned. They have the best Italian food. I would highly recommend. We go at least one a month as we live out of town.
Always a wonderful spot for Italian. Cozy and inviting atmosphere with a wide array of options. We always enjoy the garlic rolls and calamari. Pizza and pasta are always tasty and plenty will be left for leftovers, or to share! Definitely save room for cheesecake - it's delicious.
Excellent casual Italian restaurant with a good variety and nice wine offering.
Half price bottles on Wednesday.
Our lunch was so tasty, as usual. This is my favorite place to eat and lunch is so reasonably priced.
Great food and service always a friendly place to eat
The best Italian restaurant in Charlotte, love it !
Lunch portions value were great. Very big plates had plenty of left overs. The lighting was a little dark for lunch.
The goat cheese and mascarpone dip was fabulous! Everything was fresh and tasty.
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend and would go again!
Excellent! The service was top notch. Noise level was a little high, but not distracting.
Really lovely evening. The food was excellent. Huge portions! Cannot wait to eat here again.
Excellent food, excellent service! Best Italian food in Charlotte.
Hands down the best Italian restaurant in Charlotte and seriously at pricing at or below Olive Garden, why would you not go to this amazing restaurant instead?! We had a great meal, great service and it was clear they were taking ALL precautions to keep patrons safe. This will be our new regular spot and I don’t know why we waited so long to try it!
Our server, Hunter was very attentive. The outdoor space has been enclosed and was bright and sunny. Always a repeat.
I have been to Mama Ricotta's many times and for lunch, I always get the same thing. The roasted veggie sandwich and side salad can't be beat. Always consistent and delicious!
Always love Mama Ricotta’s. Never disappoints!
Food was great!
service was okay (they seemed very busy so our waitress took a long time to bring out food and wine etc)
our waitress’s posture was not polite in the beginning of the interaction but adjusted with time
overall I’ll rate this place a 3.3
My favorite restaurant! Always amazing food and great service!
Delicious generous portions. Plan to share the entrees or take some home.
Food was terrific, very authentic based on our experience with Italian restaurants in the north end of Boston. We were visiting from New England. Our server made helpful suggestions, we were very happy with our entrees and the appetizer. Prepare to spend some money...but you will get your money's worth in quality and service. The ambiance was low-key and (dare I say it?)...romantic. We felt safe during the pandemic, all the necessary protocols are in place. We are looking forward to returning when we visit Charlotte again.
Food and service was amazing! Would highly recommend this restaurant
Food was great... Martinis not so much... they were small.and just eh...Vic and Tanya were outstanding!!! Wine was very good.. would return in a heartbeat.. but would drink something else....
Great place for a romantic dinner. Service was excellent. No waiting time, food was amazing, wine as well. Place had set up a Valentines Photobooth which I though it was a great idea. If ever in NC, this place is a must.
We were so lucky to get a table and enjoy a wonderful meal with my family on Valentines evening. We had a death in the family the day before and we had all left the hospital and decided we needed some food and time together. Perfect dining experience. Thank you Mama Ricotta’s.
Very good restaurant not a chain 👌
It was a good atmosphere & food was good. Should really consider bringing the steak or pork back as special.
We were very happy with the service and the food was fantastic!
We had to wait 20mins to get a seat with a reservation. We had to switch tables because the one we had was too small and close to others. Another 15mins went past after we switched tables and still no server. We ordered a bottle of wine and had to send it back cause the glasses was dirty as hell. Food finally came after 1hr20min and it was horrible. I wanted to get my money back so bad but we was so hungry and got tired of waiting. Don’t think I’m coming back to this place. I was so embarrassed after my date
food was so good and service was even better!
The food at Mama's is consistently good. The quality is fresh and authentic and the servers are knowledgeable. They have done a nice job of spacing out the tables and I feel comfortable dining here.
Perfect setting for a business meal, great value for the food and service delivered.
Great service and food! The penne alla vodka was amazing.
Huge portions, delicious food, friendly staff. Would return.
Great as always!!!
The service and food was extraordinary per usual.
Always a solid experience. Love their bread and Penne alla Vodka pasta!
Our meal was very tasty and our waitress was very nice and attentive. Can’t wait to go back!
Great food great service and a great night! 10/10 would definitely recommend
We have been here several times. Always good food and service. We had a great waitress
