Delicious and huge portions. The service was very nice and the food was just as I remember it when I was a kid. Wish I could have eaten there again while I was in town. I'll definitely go back next time I'm in Bethlehem.

Mama Nina’s is an Italian classic from the excellent food to the ceiling painted with clouds. It is a bit of Rome in Bethlehem PA. The service was great - we will always stop in when visiting.

Great food and large portions at very reasonable price. Had seafood pastas with lobster, calimary, and shrimp and another with shrimp and scallops. Both excellent. Heavy on garlic so if you don't want heavy garlic, let them know when you order.
