Nice quaint place with very pretty grounds. Very good food, some of the best pizza around. the owners and staff are amazing, service is always excellent! A small place so reservations might be a good idea but not required.

We had dinner at the Mamma e Papa. The owners are extremely friendly and offer great service. We ordered salad, home made pasta, the pork meat, calamari and lemon pie. Excellent food for a reasonable price. Highly recommended for Italian food.

We were here on the off season and I think they may have opened up just for us. Good food and reasonable prices. Nice ambiance. We had pasta carbonara, which was delicious, and the lemon tart for dessert. YUM.
