This is the little restaurant that could but doesn't. The food is good overall although it lacks some imagination, but mainly, the atmosphere still continues to be so NOT Italian. If you're going to have background music, maybe it could be Italian music or easy listening instead of the ambient noise that is jarring and gives you a headache. It's... More

One night during outside one of the other residents had pizza and it smelled delicious. The man commented on the delicious sauce and said he got it at Momma Leone's. So my husband and I were looking to get Italian food and I spotted it on the highway. We pulled in and it looked crowded but we were seated right... More

Italian fare, love the chicken rice soup, happy hour prices, 2 for 1 bar drinks. Lots of pasta, crispy breads and crisp salads. Comfortable old world atmosphere with friendly wait staff.

Great prices on special dinners served before seven. Ample portions, good salad, great bread, but the flavor was lacking. The spaghetti was mushy, the sauces needed something added..salt and pepper helped. The music was great and our fellow diners enjoyed singing with the pianist.

I have traveled all over this world and eaten in all types of places, from the lowest to the highest. The food might have been bad, the wait staff might have been awful or the place might have been dirty and I have experienced all of those but of all those places around the world I have never been more...

Mama Leone's is wonderful, from the wonderful atmosphere, the service, drinks. The bread is over the top. The appetizers are huge, Bruscheta is great, along with Sapori Mediterranean. Grouper Portofino my husband loved, I went with lobster ravioli, both great portions, along with soup or salad, plan on taking a to go box. Great wine list, and very high end... More

We enjoyed a very nice meal at Mama's. We ordered the Veal Monte Carlo with angel hair pasta - olive oil and garlic. The sauce was perfect with the angel hair! Pasta al forno is large and plenty of pence and cheese. The soup was perfect. Salads good. Service was excellent. house chianti was very nice. Overall an excellent meal.
