They were very busy and did not have enough staff on hand. The last two times we were there it was quiet. We sat on the patio that was enclosed but all the wait staff never closed the door so patrons had to keep getting up and closing it to keep warm. The table next to us waited 45 minutes for their food. They did end up not charging us the corkage fee and brought us dessert on the house. I really like this place so I hope it was a one time occurance

This was high-quality, fine dining in a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. The service staff are amazing and clearly have been doing this a long time. I think this is probably one of the best Italian places for your buck that I've come across. I'll definitely be coming back!

Really enjoyed the meal. The service was outstanding. Food was very good too. It was a great night out. Wish the wine list was just a tad larger. Only two pinots to choose from.

I had my bridesmaid proposal tonight at this location and it was beyond what I could have expected. I have to say I had reservations at 8 but when I got there they were running a little late I was a little frustrated because I wanted to setup for the girls center piece flowers and the bridesmaid proposal gifts to surprise them nonetheless staff super made-up for it they set us up outside at the patio and though it's winter the heat lamps (and complimentary wine) kept us warm. Moreover they gave us the WHOLE patio room to ourselves so we can have our own private party which is what I was amazing. They also gave us complimentary appetizers for waiting as they were super busy. Shout-out to Dominic for making the whole experience better for checking up on us not just him but the whole staff and manager I am so happy I brought my now bridesmaids here we had a blast and enjoyed being able to control the music at the patio. Definitely coming back here again. Great food. Great service. Awesome night.

An absolute neighborhood gem. The wait staff spends time at each table making recommendations and providing details of each course. The owner also makes sure that his guests are well-treated. The food is delicious, and not overpriced. The only drawback is that it's a bit noisy when crowded. Tough to have a conversation.

Ma's was recommended to us from a waitress at the hotel we were staying at in Burbank. We wanted a nice itialan resturant that evening for dinner. We liked that we could make reservations before hand. She also recommended a view specific dishes, like the mushroom ravilois which were incredible and the knot bread that comes out before the meal. The small ceaser salads are big enough to share with 2 people so if you like a ceaser before hand only order one. The deserts were also excellent. We met the owner who came a greeted our table and set out a few "special" items he thought we might enjoy. I would definatley recomment this restaurant to anyone... (probably not a place you'd take youngs kids though... it's smaller and a bit more intimate.)

What a little gem. As soon a we walked in we were greeted with smiles and taken right to our table. Very attentive staff and the food is delicious. This restaurant is located at the end of shopping center and has plenty of parking. They have patio seating with heaters for cold nights.

I made a reservation for New Year’s Eve A month in advance, knowing it was a popular night to dine out. I was able to make the reservation with no problem and even received a confirmation of my reservation and a reminder email the day before. The night of the reservation I got to the restaurant to find it closed. Don’t rely on their online reservation system, it clearly does not work. Thanks for leaving me without a reservation on one of the busiest nights of the year to eat out.

Had a terrific time at MA's. The ambience is elegant but familiar, the staff is incredibly friendly and professional, the food absolutely delicious! My friends and I really enjoyed everything we ordered, and were pleasantly surprised by the very honest pricing. Such a great find, we will definitely go back. And you HAVE to order the MEATBALL RICOTTA TOAST! Delicious.

Pasta primavera was good, but the noise level inside was too loud. We ate outside on the patio once before and that was much more quiet.
