The food and service were excellent. Started off with a martini which was perfect. I had one of the specials for the day (Shrimp & Scallops on Spinich Fettuccine with a light cream sauce). It was really good. All the entrees ordered at our table...More

I've dined here several times with groups of friends and the food is always terrific. But on this occasion, while the food was spot on, the service was terrible. The server was young but rudeness can't be blamed on that. She botched orders and argued...More

I had the special which was lollipop lamb chops, ordered a side of rigatoni, and had a glass of moscato. It was delicious! Great food, nice and cozy atmosphere. We will be back!

Always an intimate Italian dining experience. This is the perfect date venue or place for special occasions! The crab cakes are purely the best crab meat this side of Maryland. The ambiance and service are top notch!

This restaurant is one of my favorite Italian places. Authentic cuisine. Dark interior and close quarters, but unique, and well worth the trip, especially as a couple. Would not take small children here.

I don't get to Mom Chaffee's as often as I'd like, but this time my wife and I both ordered the lasagna, which is only available Thursday thru Saturday evenings. Excellent with a dark red sauce that has just the right amount of seasoning.

Decided to conduct business interview at restaurant based on TripAdvisor ratings. Frequent many restaurants in Reading but first time at Mom Chaffe's.

They have several delicious salads and fish dishes and I think they have a flourless gluten-free chocolate cake. Of course the restaurant is Italian so they have lots of pasta dishes which DO have gluten; I don't think they... More
