It's like you walked into your grandmother's home for dinner...the atmosphere was warm and inviting, the staff was wonderful and the food was authenticly Italian! Mamma came to the table several times to make sure everything was great and it was. To add to this wonderful evening, a strolling guitarist and two fabulous singers serenaded us with Italian songs! We... More

Ate here with a friend in January 2016. We both had chicken parm, which was reallly tasty and juicy-- not dry at all. Good marinara sauce. The pasta needed more sauce. Service was slow and I had to ask twice for a sofa and twice for the bill-- and it wasn't busy when we ate there.

Mama Della's was a great dinner experience on our first day at Universal. The ambience is wonderful, the menu is great, very kid-friendly, and the singing was a treat! I give it four stars because it was a little on the pricey side and we did have better Italian food later in the week at Vivo. Still, Mama Della's is... More

A cozy & wonderful atmosphere inside filled with music and laughter. Excellent service by Mohammed and Mama herself! Our family of 10 with kids ranging from ages 10 to 18 all enjoyed it the same- delicious lasagna, gnocchi, fettuccini, fish & my new personal favorite- lemon risotto with lobster and scallops, so yummy! Pair that with incredible wine for the... More

We ate here for Christmas dinner because we wanted an upscale place that wasn't in CityWalk and was a bit more intimate. I'm so glad we chose Mama Della's. The service was great, the food was delicious, and the opera singer was fabulous. I loved the decor. It truly reminded me of being in a trattoria in Italy.

Service was outstanding but food was bland and disappointing. Thought the prices were high but able to share due to meal size.

Attention opera fans, Mama Della's serves terrific Italian cuisine in an authentic romantic Tuscany environment complete with roving operatic singers (male and female) accompanied by an accordion. They move from table to table taking requests and singing just long enough to be enjoyable before moving on. Classic Italian appetizers include bruschetta, calamari, antipasti and more. Entrees included veal chop, pasta... More

The food and the service were superb. We just cannot say enough about Mama’s personal attention and her willingness to accommodate our needs. My super picky 5 yr old could not stop asking for more pasta. We had dinner at her restaurant twice during our trip to Orlando and her food was the best food we had. Going back is... More
