My wife and I have been to Italy a couple of times and loved all the absolutely great food there. And Mamma Lucia is the closest thing in Jacksonville to the real experience and food. Italians do not have short 30 minute dinners or lunches. They are not rushed like Americans. If you are looking for fast food Italian, go to Carrabba's. But if you looking for great night out with family and friends eating absolutely great food and drinking great wine and having the owner tell you of stories of Italy, then this is the place. Set aside at least two hours for dinner there. It might not look like much from the outside since it is in the typical Jacksonville strip mall next to a Winn Dixie but don't let the outside fool you. There is great food inside. It is a little pricey, but for the quality of food and wine, it is on par with restaurants on that level of quality. If they ever found a better location like in San Marco, this place would be packed all the time.
