I highly recommend this charming restaurant. the food was beyond delicious (I had the salmon and a side of broccoli rabe). The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was quiet and welcoming.

a wonderful birthday meal! Had the three course "special" which gives smaller portions that allow people to sample appetizer, pasta, main course and dessert without feeling overwhelmed with the meal! Everything was truly outstanding: Pasta Adraitica with Fra Diavolo was my particular favorite, but everything was delicious and well presented. Don't let the simple store-front and decor fool you: this is excellent food, good service and a pleasant dining experience!

Always a great meal and experience. This is a neighborhood gem that rightfully draws full crowds on weekends, and has reliably delicious food and friendly service. As a BYOB, great value too.

First time here for my wife and me and we really enjoyed our meal. The swordfish special was especially good. Service was very friendly and competent although the pace was a little hurried. Still, we'll be back.

First time at Trattoria Moma and it was impressive as we had a romantic table for 2 in the corner. The food was great as my wife had the baratta appetizer special and I had the Salsiccia - homemade fennel chicken sausage stuffed with goat cheese over broccoli rabe and cannellini beans. Both appetizers were amazing with a variety of flavors and none overpowering. For the main course, we both had the Vitello Mare e Monte-veal medallions, porcini mushrooms, artichokes and crab meat in a white wine sauce. Wow, the only disappointment was my wife ate everything!!! We will return!

This restaurant served food that was as close to the authentic cuisine we experienced in Italy as any I've had in this country. We shared the Bruschetta, their Fettuccini Moma dish as Primi and their Salmone as Secundi, and we couldn't resist the Pana cotta for dessert. Each was a treat, from the freshly made pasta, even to the bed of rice that the fish was plated on. Cibo delizioso!

Food was not as good as in the past. The eggplant appetizer special was delicious, but the pastas while nicely cooked, lacked depth of flavor. The tiramisu had no flavor at all.

The food is excellent, made with love and authentic. The service was excellent- cheese grated table side and all items came out wonderful and as described. Can’t wait to come back !! Limoncello was the perfect ending to a wonderful dinner and dessert.

I recently was diagnosed with celiac disease and have become gluten free. I love pasta and so I was very happy to learn that Trattoria Moma has gluten free pasta dishes. In fact, he'll make any dish with pasta into gluten free (except the ravioli.) Love this restaurant.

Trattoria Moma is one of the best local Italian restaurants in the general Philadelphia area. Bledar (the owner) is an amazing chef but also such a friendly and welcoming owner. He and the wait staff are there for your every need and the service is just top notch. And very meal I have ordered here is just perfect.

Love this small great Italian restaurant! Service was great, ambiance was excellent and food cooked to perfection. I asked for a item not on the menu, and the chef prepared for me no question. You need to make a reservation, but well worth it. BYOB
