Over rated - you were practically sitting on the customers next to you, no space at all .. - it was too quiet for an italian restaurant . very little atmosphere- waiting staff were the best thing about the place.
I wouldn't rush back

We love the food! The halibut in foil is always good. The appetizer special- grilled Italian cheese with pear, pecans, and truffle was fantastic. Not inexpensive- but- so good we keep going back.

This was our 2nd time at Mamo and again the meal was wonderful. The stars were:truffle risotto, fried artichoke, eggplant that you didn’t even need a knife ! Our server Zoe was excellent. We were a large and a bit boisterous table and she was great. She also has good knowledge of your wine list and gave us some very good recommendations.

Very nice look, a bit loud at height of dinner so could use some dampers to bring it down to non shouting level.

Food was all great. Waiters definitely a bit overtaxed. They might have been short staffed.

First time to this restaurant and we will come back! What a special place. I love truffle and the ravioli did not disappoint. The BAB was not my fav but still good. House wine very nice. The dessert....well, amazing. We had the sundae and WOW. Lovely atmosphere. Not rushed. Wonderful place to spend our afternoon at for lunch.

I was really looking forward to having dinner here, especially after I called and they said they had gluten-free pasta for me.
The ambience was lovely, with movie posters on the wall and dim lighting. It was quite romantic.

However, the food and service were greatly disappointing. My drink, an aperol spritz, at $16.00, was very watered down with ice.
My meal, pasta with shrimp, was WAY OVERPRICED and BLAND. The shrimps were microscopic. I know it was a first course, but it was not worth $36 for the subpar quality of this meal. It’s not because it was gluten-free, because I’ve had amazing gluten-free pasta in Italy. My husband felt the same about his pasta which had gluten. The service was very bland as well. I had to request water. The waitress was busy talking to other employees and not attending to our needs for this type of restaurant.

First time at MAMO. Went with a group for a birthday celebration. Totally loved it. Great, energetic vibe to the room. Service was excellent, and so was the food. The only negatives were that the space is fairly small, so was pretty crowded on Saturday night, and the noise level. But, given the energy in the room, it was a fair trade-off. I wouldn't go here as a romantic, quiet, date night, but for anything else, it would be a great choice.

We had a 7 pm reservation on a Saturday night, and we were seated promptly in the upstairs dining room. I wonder how this restaurant accommodates diners who cannot climb the stairs. The dining room is lovely and understated, and it was about half full when we arrived. We appreciated the good lighting and quiet ambiance - - - until about 20 minutes in, when the lights suddenly dropped very low and the volume of the background music was raised significantly. I'm so glad we weren't arriving at that time, because the low lighting would have made it a challenge to read the menu. As the music volume picked up, so did the volume of conversation throughout the dining room, and we were fairly shouting by the time our entrees arrive . I like for the dining experience to be relaxed and conversational and leave the club experience for later in the evening. If I ever visit Mamo again, I'll be sure to be in by 5:30 pm and out by 7 pm.

We all enjoyed the cacio e pepe, rigatoni bolognese, and arugula salad as shared appetizers. The cod and the branzino were great. But the veal chop was a big miss -- it's a large veal chop on the bone that has been breaded and deep-fried like a Wienerschnitzel, and it was served with nothing but a half lemon and a bowl of french fries. I felt that there should have been something on the plate with the veal chop to add flavor and color. A dollar's worth of mixed vegetables would have made the plate interesting. A wee spoonful of any kind of sauce would have livened up the veal. Just a big bland slab of fried tasteless meat with a big bowl of fries was really disappointing, and I gave up less than halfway through.

For my money, Pepolino -- right down the street -- offers a much better experience all around.

I’ve been to MAMO several times and always have a great experience with the food and the staff. It’s definitely a scene. It’s one of my fave “go to’s.” I highly recommend it for a date or a get together. Thanks again!!

A first visit to this West Broadway eatery is definitely not my last. The hostess’ welcome was truly gracious; the upstairs ambience is lovely and the beautifully designed menu does not disappoint. Truffles are a specialty here but don’t overlook the extraordinary fish offerings. Mamo is a great find!

There are far better Italian restaurants in NYC. I would not go here again. The service, ambience, and drinks were good - nothing wrong there. The food is subpar.
