After hearing people talk about this place, hubby and I went on a Friday night. Not very busy so we were seated right away. I ordered lasagna and husband went for veal parmigiana. Salad was a joke, pile of poorly cut lettuce (needed knife and fork to eat salad), 1 cherry tomato and 2 kalmata olives covered in shredded mozzarella.... More

Was wondering what all the hype was about so we thought we would give it a try. Large portions, low prices and low quality. I got the Pasta Roberto (their most popular dish??!!) and the peppers and onions were HUGE too large to eat without cutting. It was a mess and didn't taste very good either. Took most of it... More

This is a wonderful family owned and operated place with terrific people, great food in huge portions and some of the best pasta and pizza in the county. Try the canoli, it has won awards!

We've lived in mentor for over a year and just tried moma's for the first time. Fantastic! So authentic, so hospitable. It certainly won't be the last time we have dinner at moma's

Nice place. Plays oldies music. Food and service was good. Large portions. Only drawback was their sauce is "chunky" & we prefer smooth.

We always have a good dinner at Mama Roberto's! There pizzas are delicious, Italian dinners are very good with HUGE portions, we usually take home enough for at least another meal. I'm addicted to their small sweet rolls also.

Three strikes and you're out! I've dined in twice and got carryout once. The food is awful, and I'm pretty sure this place only gets good ratings because the portions are huge. If that and deplorable customer service are your kind of thing, this is the place for you. Not for me.

I'm doing some consulting in the Mentor, OH area and happened to drive by Mama Roberto's restaurant one evening and decided to stop in. The serving staff was friendly, outgoing and very helpful in suggesting menu items and daily specials. I tried their signature dish of peppers, mushrooms and sausage over spaghetti. This was a large portion, tasty and absolutely... More

I have been here several times. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. The portions are HUGE! I'm not a fan of the marinara sauce... Too chunky. But that's my opinion. If you are a hot pepper fanatic like I am, you must try the fried hot peppers, sausage stuffed hot peppers and the "Rocco" pizza!!!! Careful, those peppers are yummy... More
