I normally get the famous lasagna or stuffed eggplant, which is always great, but I tried the grouper with olives over pasta, and it was awesome! And to compliment our meal, the wine list is one of the best around - thanks Mom & Dads!!!!

Going to Mom and Dad's is always a treat! They have a great wine selection and the Chicken Picata is outstanding. The service is attentive and friendly. Great Italian food!

Without a doubt, this is my favorite place to eat in Tallahassee! Enjoyed another memorable meal on Thursday. Perfect place to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine in a cozy atmosphere. The stuffed eggplant is my all-time favorite! Best red sauce I've ever had! Unbelievable flavors! Try the white bean and chicken soup! Just like all the dishes, I can taste the... More

Visited here on December 2nd with part of our cross country team from southern California for the AAU National Championship. There were about three dozen of us and I felt under the circumstances that the service was very attentive to our needs. Our servers were friendly and prompt. The place feels like an old house turned into a restaurant with... More

On Saturday night, our son took his Homecoming date (first official date) to Mom and Dads. He'd eaten there a few times before, we'd shown him the table where we had our first date (in 1987), and he'd had the delicious pastas. He said the restaurant has gone through a transformation. It is modern, it is airy, and it is... More

As a young girl growing up in Pittsburgh, one of our treats was to go to an Italian restaurant about 30 miles away. It was always packed on a Saturday night and we always ordered a pizza to go with the spaghetti and meatballs. Mom and Dad's reminds me of home. It is intimate and cozy. The service is always...
