We ate lunch here and the waitress suggested eggplant parmigiana, The portion was huge so I am lucky enough to have the piece I could not finish for dinner tomorrow. The sauce is so good! A lovely feature is the plate of yummy garlic rolls! Really delicious! Enjoy!

My husband and I enjoyed a meal at Mama Nina's in March of 2015, but we felt that even though there was no one in the restaurant each course was rushed. We enjoyed an appetizer, dinner and dessert with espresso. After receiving a diagnosis of terminal cancer, we decided to take my mother-in-law, who loves good Italian food to Mama... More

I visited for lunch - the place was quite crowded and the tables are so close together that I could not get to my seat without going around an adjacent table and then squeezing in. And noisy. But once it cleared out, the noise level was ok. The waitress was very pleasant. Ordered a salad with grilled chicken which was... More

Being new to town I wasn't sure about where to go for lunch. Followed a crowd to Nina's. Ordered an Antipasto Salad to go and had 1/2 for lunch, the rest for dinner. Easily two meals from this one salad. Delicious and filling. It's a popular place so next time I'll likely call ahead. Try it!

Great food for a reasonable price! All the food here is homemade and they are even willing to go off the menu and customize a dish for you. Although it can get busy on any night of the week, it is worth the wait. I haven't been disappointed with anything I've ordered here and my favorite is the Mozzarella bella... More

We dined here on a busy Friday night on a recommendation of a friend who lives in Allentown. When we first arrived, the owner attempted to seat us downstairs in the basement dining area....but it was not for us. He then cheerfully seated us in the main room in a booth by the window. Seating was tight but comfortable. The... More

Recently my wife and I visited the Bethlehem area and stumbled upon Mama Nina's. What a great dining experience. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with the menu selections. The restaurant does not have a liquor license. However, they offer a complementary glass of wine with the meal. Let me tell you it i truly Italian complete with all... More

Absolutely, loved the food! Outside seating and very great, friendly service! Located right in the heart of the downtown, historic shopping district. Very beautiful area!

We went here when our first choice That's Amore was closed the food was very good and our waiter was great the only downfall was the size of the dining room very small and crowded
