Everything was mostly OK. My daughter got the gnocchi with a vodka sauce and the sauce was decent. My wife got the chicken parm and it was not really good at all, and I got a lobster and pasta special and it was awful. This lobster was almost fatty and seemed like it was being held together by tendons. My... More

I have eaten here at least three times before, for business dinners. Two nights ago we were a party of 10 and very disappointed with the quality of service. I was also disappointed with the quality of my meal. The server was completely disorganized. The busboy was compkaining that the "lazy" waiter didn't want to serve the ground pepper. We... More

The chicken piccata is to die for. I love side dish of pasta. It looks simple, but has outstanding flavor. My husband loves the lasagne there. The wait staff are professional and prompt. This is a place where my expectation is the food will always be great. There is also a bar, and a huge wine selection.

Always a joy to eat here. Quiet, wonderful servers who take good care of you. Food is always exceptional. Reminds me of New York Italian restaurants.

Looking for Italian in Bakersfield? Your search is over! We have tried several Italian restaurants while visiting Bakersfield over the years but we always come back to Mama's.

My husband and I are getting ready to move to Bakersfield and ate here while checking out the city. Wanted to try an Italian restaurant. The location and ambience are very pretty. I probably wouldn't eat there again though and will be checking out the other Italian restaurants. The waitstaff was very inexperienced. We had to ask for bread and... More

Last night I finally ate at Mama Tosca's after living in Bakersfield 20 years. I've gone past it many times, but never eaten there. It looks very elegant from the outside and I've heard good things about it. We went to a birthday party with a total of 10 people. They have a little room in the center which was... More

On a short business trip to Bakersfield, definitely not where I consider to find a great dining experience, I had two in one trip. First, Mama Tosca's, an Italian restaurant tucked away in an Irvine Citish type shopping center so that already made me suspect. When we walked it, it was charming and we were immediately greeted and sat; we... More

This place got a marginal reputation a few years ago and it seems to be having some trouble shaking it. We go here fairly often and we always enjoy it. The service is prompt and attentive. The food is almost always excellent. We will often eat off of the appetizer menu and have never had anything other than very tasty... More

I love there sea bass dishes in a cajun mushroom sauce, or a lemon capers sauce or the diablo sauce.
