Our table was ready on time as reserved. We got very good service and the food was great. Will definitely come back.
We love this place so much we celebrated our 25th anniversary here. The food, portions, service and ambience are all wonderful. We love the unpretentious but cozy atmosphere and the food can’t be beat. Fresh mozzarella/tomato appetizer, chicken parmigiana and pollo Bianco...all absolutely delicious. They even tailored the sauce for my husband (lemon cream since he can’t do marinara. Amazing!!)
He even commented that the salad was the best he’s ever had. One of or top favorites in Charlotte by far!
Always a great experience at Mama Ricotta’s!
Food was pretty good but then again since we moved to the Charlotte area from New York/New Jersey it’s been a challenge finding Italian food that we love. Price was very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food you receive, server was very attentive. We will go back and try some other dishes on the menu.
We love mama ricotta’s. It’s always a go to option for date night or a special event. The food is consistently great with amazing service.
Excellent Service and Excellent Food Quality - I ordered a special dish and it was done perfectly.
Once again, a great meal, courteous, friendly and excellent service! Food is delicious!
A great time all around.
We took our two young children for an early dinner on Saturday night. We made a reservation, hoping we could walk in and be seated since kids can be a ticking time bomb in public spaces. We try to be very courteous of those around us. We had to wait 20 minutes for our table. It was a cold evening so we couldn't wait outside, and space was tight trying to stay out of everyone's way. We were finally seated and then waited 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged that we were there. The manager kindly offered to expedite our kids' food once we ordered, which was nice. They did get the kids' order wrong, but by that time wasn't worth addressing. We just split the one entrée and they were happy. Our food was delicious as usual. Lesson learned, it may be easier to order out next go round or go earlier to give ourselves more time.
Our experience was good. It was a little loud at times, but there were a lot of people . The Caesar salad was good as well as the goat cheese dip. The entree that I got was the pollo Romano . I thought it was good but felt it was lacking something. Maybe a bit more tomato basil sauce. Overall it was a healthy portion. I am a big eater, and didn’t even put a dent it. The spaghetti noodles were cooked perfectly. My wife really liked her chicken parmigiana. The price was very good for as much food that we got. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Italian.
Overall experience was good. The calamari was outstanding. My friend enjoyed her meal as well. There were parts of my lasagna that needed a steak knife. Perhaps the cheese was over cooked. When I informed my waiter he simply suggested putting in the fridge because all Italian food taste good the next day. Well alrighty then. Lol. My friend enjoyed it as it was her birthday and that what was most important.
I Love this place!
The Service is impeccable and the food is divine.
Expensive ($53 for 2 people with no alcohol and with tip!) but good. Louder inside than I would have expected.
Disappointed in the food,average at best. I believe that the place has slipped.
Two average meals in a row ,we will not be back
Food is always good!
Every time I’m back in NC I crave Mama Ricotta’s garlic rolls, ravioli and tiramisu. With so many new food options in Charlotte, this establishment is still one of my favorite options and a Queen City staple. I do recommend a reservation, especially at dinner time.
Food was good. Good size portions.
Wine list needs work. Would rate the wine fair.
Need to add some better wines to the list by the glass and bottle...especially pinot noirs.
It was nice but we were right next to a door to an outdoor patio so it was cold at times. Food was wonderful though!
Waited 15 minutes, even with reservation.
Has been excellent for years! Still fantastic! Frank has the recipe for success!
The meat sauce was outstanding. Good service and convenient locations.
Good food & slow service (moderately busy Sunday night). Approximately 40 mins between order and food being served. Staff confused about orders in surrounding tables (food brought to wrong table multiple times).
Delicious every time, love the Nutella pie!
Their Chopped Salad is wonderful
Took my wife on a date here and it was more than worth it to drive down from Concord. The food was excellent and even though it was a busy evening, our server was spot on. We sat outside where they have a very nice patio. The prices are reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.
Always a great option. Everything on the menu is fantastic and service is a1. They are very busy so be sure to use open table to reserve a table.
The food here is very, very good. Some of the best Italian I've ever had. My only critique would be that the server rushed us too much during dinner and it was very unsettling. After dinner we ordered dessert and before the dessert even came, we were handed the check. Mama Ricotta's can do better than that.
The food is amazing service was great wonderful date night
This is my favorite place in Charlotte for Italian fare. The service is top notch and food quality is great. The prices are reasonable for the high quality food as well.
Always good food. We love how you can share food. Great Italian food in Charlotte!
We waited until Saturday to have our annual Valentine's Day dinner at Mama Ricotta's. As always, the food was delicious. We sat out on the covered patio and it was so nice! The fire was going and it made for a romantic dinner. Our server Paige was wonderful!!
Food was excellent
This was a return trip to Mama Ricotta's to celebrate Valentine's. Great choice! We're more interested in great food that white linen and candlelight. Mama's doesn't disappoint. We split the calamari, Rhode Island style. It was garlicky and spicy and not boring. Both of us had been craving lasagne so that followed half portions of Cesar salad. The Cesar isn't on the menu but just ask. We finished with the berry cheesecake special. Ridiculously good. Our waiter, Chris, was terrific. He gave great suggestions, was attentive and a pleasure. All around great night out. The lasagne is leftovers!
The food was fantastic. Many choices to choose from. Our service was a little lacking in that we requested extra bread and it was never brought. Had to ask twice for extra tomato sauce. With that being said, I will definitely return in the future and would recommend to friends
Food was absolutely amazing and the service was quick and very friendly. Overall a great experience and dinner, definitely going back again!
Great Valentine's day dinner! The atmosphere was incredible and food was outstanding.
Valentines Day dinner. Service was great. Calamari was amazing. I’m not a big Italian fan but I really enjoyed the food. My gf wants to start coming here once a week now.
Awesome FOOD and SERVICE!! We will go back!
My wife and I have been dining at Mama Ricottas for many years and it remains one of our favorites! You can always count on friendly, courteous staff and well prepared foods. I have never been disappointed and will continue to come back!
Good pizza. Great penne alla vodka. Service and ambiance were also great.
