Got off to a slow start but our waitress did very well through the dinner. Had soup and the veal with brandy peppercorn sauce which was very good. My wife had the... More

It is nice to go to a restaurant and know that I can pick anything from the menu without reading every ingredient or asking all kinds of picky-sounding questions.Mama's has a complete menu dedicated to gluten-free selections. That said, I have dined here many times and haven't ordered pizza for about 4 years. They may have fixed it, but the... More

Met friends here for dinner. This is our favorite place as the food is always delicious and the staff so friendly. There is a huge variety of food from appetizers, salads, entrees, pizzas, sandwiches and dessert. They now have a bar too. There are many things I have not seen on other restaurant menus - such as pear Gorgonzola pockets.... More

Maybe someone in my group ordered something slow to make. Took a long time to get the food, and it was only luke warm. Slow getting the check as well, at lunch people need to get back to work. Not the normal visit.

Bruce, I am sorry that your lunch order took longer then expected. With the weather changing, and our patio opening, I feel we got busier than expected in the last few days. This was an over-sight on our part. We should have implemented more help in the kitchen with the opening of the outside patio. Please feel free to contact... More

I haven't been to Mama's in a while so surprised to see renovations & new (to me) bar -- glad to see their investing in this long standing restaurant. Food is served hot and delicious - great service. For Italian specialities in Hackettstown this is still the best.
