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.

This is a very popular restaurant, so make a reservation. Parking is tricky, but there is overflow next door. The food is delicious, and if you go during happy hour, drinks are doubles for the same price, including wine. The food is Italian and reasonably priced.

We ate dinner with another couple; it was our first time at Mama Leone's.Our server was Angela. She was delightful. Happy Hour wines were a double pour - very nice selection. The menu is extensive. I opted for Eggplant Parmesan. It was not breaded or fried - I really enjoyed the flavor. My husband thought his Veal Piccata was OK,... More

We come to Mama Leones a lot. My favorite things are the bruchetta and their spaghetti. Having come from a primarily Italian town, eating there always reminds me of home and my dad. His favorite was spaghetti. Often an excellent pianist is playing delightful music on their gorgeous white piano. One night we had so much fun. There was a... More
