I had the lasagna and it was horrible. I tried someone else's food at the table and they had some seafood pasta and that was bad as well. I do not recommend this place at all.

Had dinner on the night of a home UND hockey game so all restaurants were busy. Mamma's had a great Italian menu with wonderful selections, including the calamari with angel hair pasta that I enjoyed. Prices were very reasonable and even though busy, the wait staff was helpful and attentive, and the food was prepared and served in a reasonable... More

The three of us ate here last night; what a good choice I made. When I think of pasta, I think of Olive Garden or Green Mill, I just forget about Mamma Maria's'. Well...that will change now. We entered the restaurant by the movie theater entrance, the Cabelas side. As you walk towards the restaurant, you have two choices walk... More

The food sampler is very good if you want to try the different things. The Pasta Primavera was one of the best I've tasted. I didn't loose the flavor after cooking.

Went here for dinner on my birthday and really enjoyed the toscana soup with potatoes and sausage. Just the right amount of spice. The pasta in my shrimp and lobster dish was a bit over done but the 5 large shrimp were perfect - well cooked and seasoned nicely. Thanks for providing this special treat for birthday folks!

If you go there just order the Mexican food as it is very good but don't order Hamburger and fries as they were not good. The hamburger was thin and dry and the fries were not firm .They were too soft . The service was good and the staff were nice

Chicken Spedini, Chicken Marsala and Osso Bucco are just three of the delicious entrées you can find here. Well worth the visit.

Not Italian Food. Quality: Okay sort of, I guess., The pasta dishes are good, filling but not great The rest of the menu is is a bit dodgy. I've never had breaded deep fried lamb. The pasta dishes were large and filling. The wine list is limited and okay and well priced. Service has gone really downhill as of late.... More

If you are waiting at the Blue Moose bar & grill DON'T ! Walk right across the street to Mamma Maria's for great Italian food and no wait like the Moose. Went with family for Mother's Day. Started with wonderful appitizè of Brushetta. They have a nice full Italian menu to pick from and also pizza menu if you like.... More

Mamma Maria's has a good variety of Italian cuisine and the portions are so plentiful. The food is hot and delicious. We've been there as a couple and also with family and enjoyed every visit. Our first visit my wife ordered a Long Beach Ice Tea, and the bar was out of cranberry juice, the owner ran out to some... More
