We often dine here and are generally happy. First time for the pizza and was glad I did not come here for the pizza. However the left overs were really good, heated properly, were great. Service was impressive, even outside. We were lucky to have Robin- real, patient, professional, beautiful, friendly, and interesting. Sometimes we have not been so fortunate. New faces in the staff management signal a happy future for one of our locally located places to dine. Thank you, Robin!

We were surprised at how quiet it was....EVERYONE must have been at the beach for the weekend, and this was at 7pm. Still, the food was excellent!

Mamma Lucia was another preshow dinner [Ave Q @ Olney]. It's basic Italian with no mistakes. Portions were big. The accompanying bread was good and the dipping oil above average with garlic and parmesan. I was told the chicken parmesan was very good. My vitello & penbe in creamy marsala tasted fine if the sauce was a little heavy. Red pepper shakers were part of the standard table setting, a plus. Our server Lauren was good and gamely brought our preshow check early and split it between two credit cards with no fuss.

I'll remember Mamma L for future preOlney dinner.

The wait staff was very friendly and even brought us a special birthday treat for my wife. The mushroom ravioli is top notch!

The food was tasty though the sauce was a little too sweet for my pallet. It's a great spot for groups and families with children. the noise level can get 'energetic' so I would not recommend this location for a 'romantic' dinner. There is outside seating though there is no view to speak of, just the parking lot. The service was the best part.

We had family in town from the mid-west and wanted to have dinner in a place that everyone (including some "picky" teen appetites would enjoy. Mama Lucia's was the perfect choice! Pleasant environment, excellent service and food that everyone enjoyed.

Just after arriving and placing drink orders, the shopping center lost power due to a major thunderstorm. Although it never regained power, we stayed until it was safe to go home. During this period, the restaurant and waitstaff in particular were great. They provided us with what food they could and were able to manage an otherwise bad situation.
