Back again with our friends from Toronto who just love this restaurant. Great meal, good Italian wine, excellent service from Johnnie, never rushed. Love the homemade gnocci with tomato sauce. Just a wonderful place to make a night out of it. Thanks boys. Highly recommend.

Mama Teresa has been around for a long time in Ottawa. I've been going for a long time. I can even remember lunches and dinners when the ristorante was on Kent Street, all those decades ago. But it had been quite a while when I was last there, at least a decde. Joineing a small group for dinner, I wondered... More

Lovely and cozy atmosphere... beautiful variety on the menu. Service was outstanding... waiter was attentive, helpful and considerate. The mussels were out of this world - not sure what was in the sauce but we couldn't get enough of it. Portions are very large and so you might consider sharing. Everything was absolutely wonderful- great experience 😊

My major factor in rating restaurants is food. Therefore, despite the nice ambiance of the Mamma Teresa restaurant I can't give it more than 2 stars. The food is simply not tasty. It is so-so. If a restaurant serves a gorgonzola salad with so much Italian dressing in it that I can't even feel the taste of the salad itself... More

Over and over Mamma Teresa makes it to the first place on my top 5 best restaurant list in Ottawa. Frank ..my buddy (and owner) knows how to please 6 hungry Italian men visiting from Toronto. We skip the menu all together and simply ask Frank to bring appetizers platters...with some good red wine ...followed by pasta and meat dishes.... More

I've been going to this venerable Reston for many years and my most recent visit last night, a Friday was a perfect setting for a romantic 'date-night'. We were served by Anthony who was solicitous and helpful but thankfully not over the top. The lady had angel hair aglio olio, this was her first visit and she was thrilled with... More
