We use the best local ingredients as simply as possible and serve them in a combination of northern and southern Italian cuisine. Our ingredients are purchased from local, mostly organic, friends and local businesses. Chef/ Owner Bledar is proud to make his own cured meats, home-made pasta, bread and desserts.
True to the Italian culture, the warm and knowledgeable staff will make you feel right at home and graciously guide you through the amazing food selections. We love that we are here and live to celebrate both our location and our creative dishes. We would like to mention that in our trattoria we will display art work from different artists and is BYOB.
What a great experience! We had the Sunday special prix fixe dinner and brought our own wine. The food was excellent - great flavors, wonderful fresh homemade pasta. We will definitely go back!
We did the Sunday cash for 4 courses, each was delicious and presented attractively. This place is consistently a good choice.
The Service and the food was outstanding. Menu is has a lot of great options. Will definitely go again and recommend to friends.
Another outstanding meal, start to finish, and excellent service.
Valentines Day. ❤️. Received a gift certificate as a Christmas present
Very memorable meal — from start to finish!
Good food and good service
Always fresh and delicious. Service great too!!
My favorite place
This is our neighborhood gem. Food is delicious. Place is small and cozy (and very noisy when full). Service is perfect.
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.
This was our second visit and everything was as outstanding as the first visit. The food is amazing. The service was top notch too. I would highly recommend it.
The food was fresh and delicious!! Can’t wait to go back!!
A new discovery and I’m sure will be a favorite!!! This is a quaint store front italian restaurant where you feel like you are in Florence! The food was FABULOUS!!!!!
A comfortable, pleasant place to dine, very good food and attentive service. However, the noise level can be excruciating, making conversation difficult.
Excellent meal and service will be going again! Just perfect
Amazing food on every plate that reminded me so much of my favorite restaurant in Italy. The perfect cozy vibe plus friendly and attentive staff made our family dinner perfect.
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
Foood was delicious, wait staff was lovely
I had a really enjoyable dinner. Will return for a nice night out!
Delicious food and very nice waitstaff
We had not been to the restaurant for a couple of years. It was as good as we remembered. The food was delicious, and we will definitely return sooner than before. There is a great deal on Sundays and Tuesdays: $35 for 4 courses. Definitely worth it!!
A true neighborhood gem!
The food is great
As is the service
The owner is always around and eager to please!!
We love it there!
Love this restaurant.
I am disappointed in my experience at Trattoria Moma. The restaurant is entirely too small for the amount of tables they have in it and they do not have enough servers to accommodate all of the tables. We were a party of 4 that sat in the front of the restaurant , just a few feet from the front door, and we waited at least 15 minutes for water after we arrived. That is no exaggeration. We watched the server walk to every table to check on the guests, clear plates or take orders for dessert while we waited to be acknowledged and offered water. It got to a point where I walked to the back of the restaurant where the staff was hanging out and I said, "Can you please serve our table some water?" I wouldn't have made such a big deal if the room wasn't jam packed with people causing it to be so hot. That was before we even had our wine bottle opened or the specials shared with us, which was delayed because of the amount of tables the staff had to cover. Our full dining experience should have been 2 hours. But instead, it was 3 hours. Great to catch up with our friends, but there was so much waiting just to be acknowledged and place our orders. Then there was a delay in receiving our bill, so more time waiting after our meal was done.
Second time here and was just as great as the first. We had the branzino and the veal and they were both amazing. Please do not take the branzino dish off of your menu and I’ll come back and get it again. Everything was great from start to finish. Hidden gem.
The food is always well prepared and delicious. Delightful wait staff. One of our favorite places to dine.
Cozy BYOB in Mt. Airy. Food is delicious and creative. We’ve been a few times to the BYOB and had a terrific experience each time.
Overall, we loved the food and felt the restaurant was solid. That said, the noise level was very high and it took away from the dining experience. The service was friendly and generally satisfactory considering it was a packed Saturday night. We will definitely return but will probably choose to come earlier or on a week night when it’s less packed so we can enjoy conversation at the table without raising our voices!
I chose this restaurant from Yelp reviews. And they did not disappoint. We were running a bit late and the host was able to hold our table until we arrived. We had a wonderful meal which included lobster lasagna! We will be back.
I would probably try this spot again, but it was a bit hectic on New Year's Eve and I'm suspecting the food may have suffered a bit as a result. They appeared to have one server and someone else ...maybe the owner? … helping out. We had a late reservation but still waited a long time to even get water. Two tables near us had a can of Pledge on them … less than festive. Food was OK … squash soup with crab had minimal but very tasty crabmeat. The soup was thin didn't have a ton of flavor,but salt and pepper improved in considerably. The seafood risotto was find, but just two scallops seemed skimpy as the description indicated they were the stars of the dish and the mussels were oddly out of their shells buried in the rice. My husband's steak was flavorful. The side dish was not as described and the presentation was lacking. As I said, I think they were maybe understaffed and the menu looks interesting, so I'd give it another try for sure.
Never disappoints ! We dine at Trattoria Moma a few times a year and always leave satisfied. We had a little hesitation dining here New Years Eve, hoping the service or quality wouldn't be affected due to the busyness of the evening. All was perfect. Starting with a shared salad and two seafood entrees, both recommended by our server when asked. Wait staff was pleasant and not overbearing. A great way to end 2019.
Trattoria Moma is one of our favorite restaurants. We always enjoy the food, friendly staff, and ambiance. We spent our first New Years' Eve there and had the most enjoyable evening! While there was a special menu (that did include some of our regular favorites), the prices were not jacked up like at other restaurants for holidays. A superb meal from appetizers to desserts, and a lovely way to ring in 2020!
The food was outstanding. Just a nice little place with homemade Italian that is not your normal run of the mill Spaghetti and meatball joint. We had lobster ravioli that was light and full of flavor with the right ammount of lobster. The panna cotta was unbelievable, Never had this before and have seen it on various cooking shows, so we decided to try. Made in house, it was one of the best things I have ever eaten!!!!!
We were seated right away. The service was great and the food was delicious.
We chose the Sunday evening, prix fixe menu - and everyone in our party of six raved about the food! You're able to pick your courses from the menu (no specials allowed), and the portions are slightly reduced so you end up with just the right amount of food. We had four different apps, 5 different pastas, and 3 different entrees, and they were ALL very, very good!
I've had several dinners at TM and continue to return. The pasta is varied, made fresh and flavorful. Appetizers also delicious and they generally offer pasta, fish specials. The ambiance is comfortable and intimate for groups of two or more, also BYO. If anything, I'd ask to have a pepper grinder on the table because I enjoy fresh pepper on my pasta and have to ask for it.
Whatever they are doing I hope they continue to do because I love having authentic, fresh Italian food nearby.
Trattoria Moma is one of my favorite restaurants in the Chestnut Hill/Mr. Airy area. I love the food and the wait staff are as nice as can be. Had family down from Northampton MA and they couldn't say even good things about the restaurant. I highly recommend it.
