    It was our first time there, overall it was good and we enjoyed it. We will be back we like classic Italian restaurants. To start we had the mozzarella (circles) sticks which were really good. The garlic bread was pretty garlicky and buttery which makes it delicious. House bread is focaccia nice and airy. The Amaretto Cheesecake was amazing!

    The restaurant is lovely and the service was good but the food? Meh. We had seafood dishes that were so overcooked that they were nearly inedible - certainly not enjoyable. A real disappointment.

    Standard Italian fare, good but not exceptional. Service was good. Easy parking nearby. A bit too noisy mostly because all sounds echo off the hard surfaced floor and walls.

    Very good food for Americanized Italian food. That was not meant as an insult. Most Italian restaurants don’t serve authentic Italian dishes. The food was absolutely delicious. We had the carbonara and chicken parmesan Excellent service- attentive, thoughtful, and professional. Will absolutely return to this restaurant.

    The decor was nice and our waitress was friendly and helpful. They have a good selection of menu choices - appetizers, pasta, pizza and entrées. Our dinner was pleasant - mozzarella platter, Caesar salad, shrimp scampi, seafood fettuccine, Brussel sprouts, lasagna and garlic bread. Most items we tried were quite good. I would have rated Mamma Mia a higher overall score, but we had to deal with the manager who wouldn't combine our bills and accept our mixed cash and credit card payments. He didn't know how count cash. I guess since many people pay with credit cards nowadays that he no longer knew how to deal with actual cash. It was an unexpected and undesirable way to end our evening.

    Was received with a smile and service was great. Food was good but for my taste just a little heavy on the salt. Loved the selection of beer they had that went lovely with my pasta. the reason for the lower score is because it was hard to wave down a server to get a order of their garlic bread... never came :(

    This place has serious potential, but it’s location makes it borderline impossible to enjoy dinner. The floor shakes with every passing car. Your water shakes in the glass and sometimes so much you can’t hear.

    Everybody really enjoyed their dinners, we made sure that each of us got something different. I think some items are overpriced ($7.50 for a basket of garlic bread), but I understand the price of everything is going up. Our server was delightful and very attentive.

    Our party of six, 3 couples, enjoyed their meals. Our waiter was perfect- knew the menu and wines/cocktails well, also could suggest-when asked, what would be a good choice. I had made the reservations and hoped the food was still delicious as before Covid. The dinner was great, I heard no regreats, only compliments on what people ordered.

    Our server was great and the food very good (although the gluten-free pasta was disappointing). We were, however, seated right by a curtain, behind which there was a private party. It became so loud we could not have a conversation, and people kept bumping us through the curtain. I suggest you not seat people so close.

    All the pasta is excellent. It will be a challenge to narrow down the choice! I wouldn't go there for a steak, but they have them. Other items like Scalapine, look like excellent choices. The desserts are what you would expect at an Italian cuisine and deliver with yet again many choices to be made.
