One of my favorites. My wife and I love the gyros and the Chicken Lemoni. They have a charming patio in the summer. Beautiful.

Never had a bad meal or experience at Mamma's. Best food around. Salads are wonderful, melanzana is my personal favorite although the steak and cheese sub and the gyro are a close second.

I enjoyed Peroni... More

I was here last weekend after visiting Mount Vernon. I had the baked ziti and it wasn't the worst thing I've ever had but it wasn't the best either. There are probably other things on the menu that are better as this place has a wide selection.

I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. I am always amazed at the wide variety that is on the menu. And, everyone in my party, whether they order Greek, Italian or traditional American dishes, are all very happy with their meals. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had a hard time finding this since our GPS took us thru a shopping plaza, and it looked like we were right there, but we were in front a "Moes'". After going back on the main road and following directions coming from the opposite direction we did find it next to a McDonalds, the McDonalds faces the main road... More
