Mother's Day Menus & Specials
What better place to bring mom than MAMA Ricotta's? We'll have brunch and specials all day until they run out.
Our Pasta Primivera with cream sauce and side salad was delicious!
Great meal and service.
We all enjoyed our Easter meal at this restaurant. The hot rolls with spicy EVOO were very tasty. We shared the calamari appetizer....they were hot and delicious and perfectly prepared. We ordered the pasta primavera as an appetizer to share....it was excellent, well seasoned, veggies were perfect....overall....a big winner. We all ordered a chicken meal...chicken parmigiana got a thumbs up. The grilled chicken with bruschetta was deemed excellent and the chicken with carciofi was very good as well. The menu is not very extensive and there’s not a lot of choice but what is there is made well and with care.
The food was excellent, and so was the service. We had so much food that we took half of it home and ate it the next day.
We enjoyed the Easter brunch. Every dish was delicious! A wonderful dining experience.
Mama Ricottas is a very reasonably priced restaurant with very good food!
Don’t think you could find a bad meal there. Everything was *delicious*, service amazing (thanks Tyler) and left SO full. Would definitely go again.
The food and service were amazing! Definitely a good value for the amount of food you get. The place is smaller than expected but that’s not really a complaint. Just an observation.
Glute free pasta available. They serve it on blue dinnerwarethat is different from their standard china
A+ all around. Highly recommend.
Took over 10mins just to get greeted after being seated at our table. Ordered normal drinks and waited another 15mins to get those, waitress dropped them off and left without asking if we were ready to order....after another 10mins we had to waive her down to order. So 35mins of sitting at the table before even ordering. Food was great, we had to box our own left overs which is fine but not the level of service we are used to at Mama Ricotta’s. Even saw other waiters packing up other tables leftovers. After asking for the check and getting it, you guessed it another 10mins to pick it up and another 10mins after that to return it. It wasn’t busy but rather seemed like our waitress didn’t care about us. She was very nice and polite but it was not a good experience. For reference we have been going here over 5 years multiple times per month so I have a pretty good idea this isn’t the norm.
The customer service is exceptional and the food is absolutely delicious! One of the best if not the best restaurants in Charlotte!
Momma Ricotta never disappoints. I had the mussels and shrimp on gluten free pasta-delicious! I was astounded at how much seafood was included!
Awesome food! Great place for a date night or family dinner
Fresh bread was at our table almost as soon as we sat down and was amazing. The service was top notch and the food just got better and better!
I specifically booked Mama Ricottas to use my open table reward. I had made the reservation with the reward and provided the reward card to the server, then to the manager. They were not able to apply my $25 reward to the bill. Please advise.
Nice Friday night date with great food. We choose family style cheese ravioli's and for dessert the apple crisp with vanilla ice cream.
I made reservations for OUTDOOR seating and this was definitely not outdoors. All windows were closed. Ceiling fans were going but there was no ventilation that I could see. I left after 20 minutes because I was not comfortable. Wish I had known that outdoor seating was basically indoors.
We have to say we have never had such bad service at Mama's before. Not sure if she was new or not. We had to ask for set-ups, never got refills on iced tea. Had to ask to have the plates cleared before dessert. We ordered Mama's Pasta which is a family favorite or ours and it was not nearly as good as normal. We will be back, just disappointed.
It was an all around wonderful experience as usual with Mama Ricotta’s
First time diner. Waiter was very quick and attentive. Food was not as good as I was expecting, but was good. Menu, table, and chairs were dirty so because of that and lack of flavor, it is doubtful we will return for some time.
We had an early dinner on Saturday. The calamari. Pizza, and cheese ravioli were great.
We enjoyed our meal. It was delicious and the service was great. Could have been quicker with ice tea refills, but overall very nice experience.
The Calamari I ordered was either overcooked and/ or undercooked. The mussels were fine, not great just fine. The Calamari was supposed to be fried but was dry, and I suspect not fried but heated in some other manner. Some was tough, some was slimy as in not cooked. I had to send it back. As far a Covid precautions; The staff all wore masks. The guests were NOT spaced out as in many other places we have been recently. Guests waiting for tables were closely side by side mostly with no mask.
LOVED our date night here the food was so good and our waitress was so helpful :)
Our server was very attentive! I forgot her name unfortunately :(. but she was awesome! the food was amazing and we would definitely be back and make it a monthly dinner thing ❤️
As always, a great meal. The food is great as is the service. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an authentic Italian meal.
The food was very good. Great selection of authentic Italian dishes. Short ribs over potato gnocchi reminded my wife of her grandmother's recipe. Service was great. Social distancing observed. Our server, Cat, was excellent. Go there and enjoy!
Excellent food; prompt attentive aervice
The wood fire pizza was AMAZING! We had a blast and our waiter was so great!
The food was awesome, which is why me and my husband keep returning!
Lovely food and service as always! Will come back.
The penne alla vodka with Parmesan crusted chicken (extra $7) is to die for!!!!! Our waitress was also very friendly with a great attitude. She suggested our wine for us too which we loved as well!
Food is always delicious. The specials are fantastic. The service is spot on. Always a great night at Mama Ricotta's - it's definitely a regular restaurant we like to support.
First time going and will not be my last. Best Italian food around.
Excellent service and food!
Server was super nice and informative went with everything he suggested.
The place is a solid restaurant!
Amazing Italian comfort food! Try the chicken parm! Best ever!
