I recommend dining in if you order pizza. It is crispy on the bottom, and they use fresh Mozarella. It is the best pizza in town, hands down. The service is awesome and they have $1 draft beer.

Wife and I had lunch here around 2:00 p.m. Wife had spaghetti with mushroom meat sauce and I had spaghetti with sausage and marinara sauce. We ordered from the lighter menu and we were glad we did because it was plenty. Service was fast and friendly. Food was very good. Wife was happy and of course that what matters most!

This place is pretty much every predictable small-town Italian spaghetti-and-pizza joint, only sub par even by that standard. I wouldn't bother with the review, except for the way my visit ended. Once I was in the place, I expected the food to be blah, but maybe not as consistently overcooked as it was. But when I got the check, the... More

First, the food is always great when you can get a table. This is good Italian food for the surrounding area which is devoid of proper Italian restaurants. Plan to stand and wait for a table. The dining area is too small for the amount of customers that come in. But worth it by the time you've finished.

Called in a take out order and picked up a large Joe's Special minus anchovies and a large Pepperoni for the family on a Friday night during Spring Break and they were both delicious! Admittedly, we've ordered from Mama's in the past so we knew what to expect and Mama's didn't let us down. It's not cheap, but they always... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your meal. Lasagna is one of my best sellers and the seasoned ground beef is layered in preparation and topped with marinara sauce. We are always happy to give our customers more sauce on the side. We prepare our own Italian dressing and balance it with seasoning so it is not overpowering. If there... More

Unfortunately, Mama's is all pasta, and not very good. I eat gluten free and there was nothing on the menu other than a tossed salad for me to eat. Felt we were bothering the waitress, she really wanted to be with the couple sitting at another table.

Although my pastas are not gluten free we have a wide variety of items that are gluten free on the menu. I have never had a problem in the past. An example is our philly steak or chicken that is prepared and topped on our house salad. Our chef salad is a best seller as is all our specialty dishes... More
