There is really nothing wrong with the restaurant or the food, coming from the Northeast part of the country I’m pretty spoiled when it comes to Italian restaurants. The Northeast has a large Italian population so we have lots of options. A couple in our party wanted to try Mama Mia Trattoria so we gave it a go. To my taste the calimari was too thickly cut and the sauce was very hot, here the calimari is thin, lightly breaded and served with banana peppers and sometimes a balsamic reduction. Our local fisherman supply a good part of the country with this delicacy. The Chicken Picatta was very nicely done, as was the Carbonara,nothing to complain about here. The Manicotti and Lasagna were large portions but average. The desserts were excellent (tiramisu and lemon cake). As I said earlier there’s nothing wrong with the food here and many will be well satisfied.

Good family choice near the downtown area. Food was good and the staff was very friendly.

I came here for a post-Valentine's dinner and had a great time. Both of our meals were outstanding and the waitress we got was very nice and helpful. Would recommend to friends!

I usually never leave reviews but our experience was exceptionally horrible. Made reservations for Valentine's Day/my date's birthday and the food was bland and flavorless. I've had better sauces out of a great value jar from Walmart. The $19 plate of fettuccine Alfredo was awful and my date’s gnocchi was also pretty bad. Only good thing we had was the waygu meatballs which was $16 for like 3 meatsballs and they made both of us extremely sick to our stomachs after getting home. I'd give it 0 stars if I could. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYBODY.

My partner and I went here for Valentine’s Day in hopes for a great night out. The atmosphere was decent with nice lighting and decor; however, the service was aweful. The woman waiting on us spilled water all over the table and did not wipe it up even after we mentioned it and our appetizer was cold when it was brought to the table. She also made us feel like we were in the wrong to get butter with our bread when we asked if we could have some ( it was obvious that she forgot to bring it). I don’t know any restaurant that doesn’t serve butter with bread. Overall, I would not recommend this place to anyone. The service says a lot about an establishment.

We were sat next to a table with children who let them run wild. This very much impacted our enjoyment of our meal. Also, sitting directly along the path that waiters take to the kitchen, our table moved every time someone walked by as the floor moves slightly.

For the umpteenth time we ate at this great Italian restaurant and this time for lunch. We started with the minestrone soup. My wife ordered their classic lasagna and I ordered the fettuccine bolognese. Both were delicious. The finale was the very tasty connoli.

We dined at 4pm on a Sunday just before a Blazer game. It was empty when we arrived and a few came into the bar area while we dined. I had the salmon, which was a generous portion and prepared perfectly. The rice and salad were not remarkable. My friend enjoyed her seafood pasta.

I had veal parm and it was fork tender, perfectly prepared and a huge portion. My son had the Special mac & cheese and it too was amazing. Service as always was spot on. Mama Mia’s remains our families go to for authentic, classic Italian food.
